Dreary day despite some late afternoon sun . . . Folks in the 1500 block of Penn are partying in the street tonight . . . What the heck is going on in the money world these days? A new law allows us retailers to charge you a fee for using your credit/debit card instead of cash though few plan to do so immediately. Now comes word that the Pennsylvania turnpike will charge you an additional fee if you pay with cash. Have I inadvertently followed a White Rabbit down a hole? Is that a grinning cat out on a limb? Ah, yeah, now it comes to me--there are a bunch of mad wierdos assembled for a Tea Party . . .
