We hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday and are ready to take a break from the shopping mall to see what you missed this week at Third and State.
We blogged about the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue's Britney Spears moment, the challenges of reading all the way to the end, and why it's good to be king (or at least a well-paid CEO).
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
- On the Marcellus Shale, Michael Wood blogged about a $56 million "oops" by the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue in estimates it made earlier this year of Marcellus Shale industry tax contributions in 2010.
- On jobs and the economy, Mark Price explained why it's a good idea to read to the end before criticizing the work of others. He also highlighted in the Morning Must Reads The Philadelphia Inquirer's series "America: What Went Wrong" and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's series on what happened to the middle class.
- In other Morning Must Reads, Mark Price shared news stories on the fallout of fiscal austerity across the Commonwealth and wrote about the big bucks the new CEO of Pittsburgh-based American Eagle Outfitters will be making. As King Louis XVI of France was fond of saying, it's good to be king.
