Commonwealth Foundation Affirms Liquor Privatization Study

PA House Passes Quigley Crackdown on Retail Theft

The Pennsylvania House of Representatives has approved legislation sponsored by Rep. Tom Quigley (R-Montgomery) that would impose harsher penalties for retail theft on repeat offenders who have completed an Accelerated Rehabilitation Program (ARD).

House Bill 1603 was introduced at the request of the Limerick Police Department, which has been dealing with a dramatic rise in retail thefts since the Philadelphia Premium Outlets opened in the township. Many of the people arrested for shoplifting are repeat offenders.

How bad is the problem? Reporter Brandie Kessler will have the following story in Wednesday's edition of The Mercury:
LIMERICK — Three men arrested for retail theft from the Philadelphia Premium Outlets over the weekend have extensive criminal histories and between them have prior arrests for rape, robbery and murder, with one of them being a registered sex offender, according to police.
That's just the latest of dozens of articles published in The Mercury about thefts from Philadelphia Premium Outlets.

From a press release issued by Quigley:
"The ARD program cannot be used as a shield for repeat offenders," said Quigley. "It is a very worthy program that helps people who genuinely made a one-time mistake, but the Legislature must close the loophole that is allowing repeat wrongdoers to be charged with multiple first offenses."

Quigley's legislation is in reaction to the case of Commonwealth v. Graeff, in which the Pennsylvania Superior Court ruled that because the definition of second offense in the retail theft statute did not include participation in ARD, a subsequent offense must be considered another first offense.

House Bill 1603 would correct this multiple first offense loophole, allowing prosecutors to charge defendants who participated in ARD but continue to break Pennsylvania’s retail theft law with a second-degree misdemeanor.

"This is an important bill that closes a loophole in the law which allows second-time retail theft offenders to receive a more lenient sentence reserved for first-time offenders. I would like to thank Representative Quigley for the expeditious manner in which he addressed this issue after it was brought to his attention by Limerick Township police detectives," said Limerick Township Chief of Police William J. Albany.

"House Bill 1603 is consistent with the manner in which our laws handle multiple DUI offenders who have completed ARD," said Quigley. "Enacting this measure will send the message that Pennsylvania will not tolerate continued and unabashed retail theft. Its cost to our businesses and society is too high."
The legislation, which was approved by a vote of 178-20, will now go before the Senate for its consideration.

SPIN METER: Obama's disconnect in jobs sales pitch

The Associated Press' Erica Werner takes apart Obama's latest convoluted message on jobs, focusing on Obama's version of reality, which has nothing to do with reality.

Bottom line? It's not about jobs, an area where Obama has failed miserably during the past three years, it's about setting up his re-election campaign for 2012. The nation's tens of millions of unemployed are mere pawns in Obama's game.

From Werner's article:
The disconnect between what Obama says about his jobs bill and what stands as the political reality flow from his broader aim: to rally the public behind his cause and get Congress to act, or, if not, to pin blame on Republicans.

He is waging a campaign, one in which nuance and context and competing responses don't always fit in if they don't help make the case.

Say it ain't so, Homer.

After 20 years on the air, the show that made the Fox Network may be coming to an end?

'The Simpsons' could become a victim of declining ratings and greedy voice actors.

From The Los Angeles Times:
This season, "The Simpsons" has averaged 7.1 million viewers. That is a drop of nearly 19% from five years ago, when the show averaged 8.7 million viewers. In the coveted category of viewers ages 18 to 49, ratings for "The Simpsons" have fallen 17%.

Most shows experience ratings declines as they age. The conundrum is that production costs rise at the same time because producers and actors typically get big raises the longer a program stays on the air.

What do coroners in Pennsylvania have to hide?

From a recent editorial in The Mercury about attempts to exempt certain coroner records from public scrutiny:
THORNS to the state Senate for considering eliminating public access to coroner records, a move that would set back progress toward open records in Pennsylvania. Senate Bill 961 would eliminate public access to virtually all coroner records. Instead of a full report on the cause of a suspicious death released in a timely fashion, it would require only the release of the name, cause and manner of death and even then it would become public only 30 days after the calendar year in which a death occurs. The coroner's office plays an important role for the public and the criminal justice system by providing an independent and timely investigation into deaths of questionable circumstances such as homicides, suicides, accidental and often sudden and unexplained deaths. There is no question that everyone involved in the process of someone's death, including the media, needs to be sensitive, but complete information about suspicious deaths is critical. This is a bill that should not move forward.
