This is what I have been saying for some time, that Jonathan Newman, who I suspect is a free trade junky, is one of the greatest socialists the commonwealth of Pennsylvania has ever known (an observation I am tempted to tell him in writing). His performance proves that state run enterprise can work, but like anything else, it takes hard work and innovation. Now instead of the money going to some shareholders bank account it is being used for the common good. Just imagine if we could do the same with other vices that are never going to go away.

"Indeed, it's not out of the question that Newman could do what Mikhail Gorbachev couldn't: Make a socialist enterprise sufficiently entrepreneurial and consumer-friendly to survive."
-Andrew Cassel (resident free trade junkie at the Philadelphia Inquirer)
