Rendell in Bellefonte

I really would love to know what Gov. Ed Rendell expects to get out of his visit to Bellefonte today.

Of course he'll tout his education funding.

But this issue is weeks old. Weeks old. He and legislators should be hard at work compromising on a state budget.

He and legislators are holding state workers, and the state, hostage.

Our View today tells him to go back to the Capitol and negotiate. I don't think he can get there fast enough, even with his known speedy state police cars.
