The musician's union wants the Philadelphia Orchestra to tap its $120 million endowment if the Orchestra wants to withdraw from the union pension fund as part of bankruptcy reorganization.

Pennsylvania spreading privatization? Gov. Corbett suggested this week that Pennsylvania's 117 state parks might be ripe for privatizing.
When the governor was asked what besides the Liquor Control Board, might benefit from private-sector control. He replied: "Prison health care and running state parks."
Corbett cited the lack of lifeguards at beaches and park pools saying, "If we privatize that, can we save a little money and have the lifeguards back?"

The Phillies offense has suddenly perked up and is producing more hits and runs. According to Charlie Manuel, "this is hitting season" the summer months when he expects bats to come alive. The recent addition of Hunter Pence to the 5 spot in the batting order behind Ryan Howard seems to be forcing pitchers to throw Howard more fastballs.
