While the governor did tackle the UPMC-Highmark situation, critical questions on the Penn State investigation and on his school reform proposal, he used much of his Pennsylvania Press Club speech yesterday to give some year-in-review highlights.
A couple of re-warmed highlights of the lighter moments from Corbett's remarks:
- The governor's back is doing much better following his May surgery: "I should have done that much sooner. I wouldn't have been as cranky with you. (Pause) I don't think I was cranky, I shouldn't have said that."
- In another health-related update, his Airedale puppies also are doing well: "They are presently wearing - if you are familiar with the movie 'Up,' there's a reference to the 'cone of shame,' they're both wearing a cone of shame right now because they both went through their surgeries to make sure that they couldn't have puppies.
"They've been neutered and spayed; responsible pet owners, if you're not going to bred them should do so. And when you have a brother and sister, it's a good idea to neuter and spay them."
