Sure, they’re all over big cities — used by police as a punishment for those who refuse to pay their parking tickets.

Future home of Johnson Controls? We’ll just wait and see.
Last week got pretty wild.
For months, we knew a Fortune 500 company was looking to relocate within York County to Hopewell Township using a tax incentive program that needed approval from the school board, township and commissioners.

Hurricane Sandy is on her way. As a resident of Pennsylvania, I’m following along with the traditional inclement weather protocol of panicking while purchasing bread and milk like it’s the end of the world.
As a journalist, this preparation includes a few extra things.
1. First, I fed the Boyermobile. It was hungry.
Here I am at Rutter’s on Pennsylvania Avenue filling my car with gas and wearing my jammies just because Cost: $48. But it’s necessary. I’ll probably be out-and-about tomorrow, and if there’s no power I can charge my devices in the car.
2. I stocked up on supplies. Need to keep my glucose up.
Pro tip: Runts, Sour Patch Kids and assorted licorice thingies are crucial to the operation.

As you can see, I’m all ready for Sandy. I’m also halfway through my vodka and orange.
I’m going to finish that and get to bed.
Signing off, folks.
