Letter to the Editor

Thursday, August 9, 2012 by The Press in Local News

To the Editor:

One of the first things you learn in college is how to do many things at the same time. It wasn't called multi-tasking when I was a Penn State student, but like most Penn Staters, I mastered it early.

To the Editor:

I am a Buckeye who arrived in the Lehigh Valley about 35 years ago and feel that JoePa is getting worse treatment than Adolph Hitler.
