Centre County is in the New Yorker.
This week's issue features correspondence from Middletown, Conn.; Kalamazoo, Mich.; Morpeth, United Kingdom — and Bellefonte.
The letter writer, Martha Kolln, actually lives in Patton Township off Buffalo Run Road, but no matter: One of our own gets some prestigious ink.
Kolln is no stranger to seeing her thoughts published, having been a contributor to the Centre Daily Times opinion pages for years. But in this case, she made the cut in a global competition — with an observation, of all things, on convicted swindler Bernard Madoff's semantics during his fraud trial. I don't want to steal her thunder; you can read her comment here.
