Gary Rotstein probes the big questions about tomorrow's primary here at the Post-Gazette's Morning File. Among them:
Q: There are 12 people running for lieutenant governor. Are you sure that's enough?
A: It'll do, for now. But because of the heavy responsibilities of the job, it'd probably be wise to amend the state constitution so that multiple lieutenant governors could share the duties, in which case it'd be good to have more than a dozen to choose from in the future.
Q: If Dan Onorato gets elected governor, does that mean that nettlesome drink tax of his disappears after he leaves Allegheny County? I'm tired of driving 20 miles after work every day to a saloon in New Kensington to save a quarter.
A: Based on his record, there might be a new drink tax enacted across Pennsylvania within hours of Mr. Onorato taking office. The good news is that would cut down on your unwise mix of alcohol and driving, unless you'd like to start making trips to Wheeling instead.
