Welcome to the gates of Gilead. Extreme abortion bans set the stage for a Supreme Court challenge to Roe v. Wade. 8 states now have passed anti-abortion bills this year, the worst, of course, being this week's bans in Georgia, Alabama, and Missouri. Elizabeth Warren announces one of the most aggressive plan to defend reproductive rights.

Martin Tower, the former international headquarters of Bethlehem Steel, is no more. The building was imploded on May 19th.
I’ll be working the polls in tomorrow’s PA primary election. I’m out there for One Pennridge for the Pennridge School Board election. The team of Kelley Peloquin, Peter Yarnell, Kyle Esposito, Lisa Wilson, and Alex Rajan are the folks to pull the lever for on Tuesday - that’s tomorrow.
