The Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre has hit a rough patch lately and some people are predicting it's demise because of the sour economy. I think it will survive but they have to book better acts than Johnny Mathis and Brian Wilson but that's just my opinion.
Anyway, Congressman Paul Kanjorski will announce on Tuesday that he got some money to fix the roof on the place.
The Kirby is a gem and is my favorite place to see a show and we have seen many of them. The upcoming lineup has something for everyone. I looking forward to the imitation Pink Floyd band in the winter.
Kanjorski has been on CNBC talking regulatory reform and working hard in committee meetings trying to figure out how to avoid another meltdown like what happened when Bush was occupying the White House. Note to my Republican friends: history didn't start on January 20th of this year. The government's finances were blown up by the last guy. I haven't blogged much about his work to reform the financial industry because it gets too wonky for me but if you are interested you can read about it here.
He even got a shout out from our Nobel Prize winning President.
