ROUZERVILLE, PA. - Heavy morning rain might have dampened the crowd Saturday at Hooverville Elementary School's annual Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) fundraiser, but spirits soared through the clouds.

Driving west on Interstate 70 and given a choice between entering Washington County and possibly facing death in the electric chair, the alleged serial sniper pulled off the road and went to sleep. Just couldn't bring himself to keep going, I suppose. He got so close - about a hundred yards away, or so, and then just couldn't in good conscience bring himself to cross the border. I want to reach out, touch the sniper on the shoulder and tell him that really, we're not that bad. I know at first blush it may seem as if we are too dysfunctional for even a serial killer to stomach, but mostly it's superficial.
