The past week provided plenty of fodder for the “Trailer Park Caucus” of PennLive.com. Much of the traffic centered around the acquittal of a suburban police office on murder charges.

A November 6th letter calling for posters to have to use their real names generated 459 comments as the entry goes to press. It also prompted an odd exchange between myself and a member of the Harrisburg Patriot-News editorial board.

While these were “off-year” elections in Pennsylvania, the fact that the Demcratic candidates for the State Courts won a sweep did generate 150 comments.
