Ran into a retired lady walking on North Ridge on Saturday, and we had a talk about houses and property taxes. Little old ladies vote, people. They vote in battalions, regiments, brigades - little old ladies vote. And from conversations in Centre County over the last three years, I think I can safely conclude, sweet little old ladies are mightily, mightily pissed about property taxes. This particular sweet little old lady was pretty close to demanding the lynching of State Rep. Herman, and he isn't even her representative. She just saw him on public-access television, obstructing the passage of a property tax bill, and blew her top at it.
Lynn Swann, are you listening? Property taxes. Property taxes. Property taxes. It's the golden wedge issue this year, if you ask me.
