The Shatzkin Files (blog)    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Philadelphia Inquirer    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
From Ginny Smith: Susan Corbett, wife of Gov. Tom Corbett, considers herself Pennsylvania's First Gardener and guess what. It's not hype. It's true.
