1. Happy happy Valentine’s Day! What did you get me, you baloney brains?
2. Oh, for the LOVE OF GOD!
The Elizabeth Township Sanitary Authority has improved staffing, pumping and flow through its sewage treatment plant as ordered by the Allegheny County Health Department but raw sewage continues to flow into the lower Youghiogheny River.
The highest daily overflow occurred Feb. 6, when an estimated 8.725 million gallons of untreated sewage and storm water bypassed the plant and was discharged into the river. The amount was estimated because the heavy flow flooded out the monitor.

Remember — I always tell the truth.
Oh, Eddie. Today is Valentine’s Day. Not Opposite Day, you silly man.
4. From the PG’s Early Returns blog:
“We must ensure that cruel puppy mills and brutal pigeon shoots are not allowed to flourish in Pennsylvania,” state Humane Society Director Sarah Speed said.
Puppy mills are cruel. Pigeon shoots REWL! When I’m governor, I’m going to introduce special legislation that sets specific benchmarks for just how much I expect the pigeon shoots to flourish in Pennsylvania.
5. An email from reader Morticia:
Yo, PG. So my son who is five was eating lunch today and looking at the valentines he made for his classmates. They are all Power Ranger valentines that say things like “Kick it into high gear! It’s Valentine’s Day” or other such sayings. He says to me, out of the blue, “This one should say, ‘Kick a bird! It’s Valentine’s Day!'” Just thought you’d appreciate that!
I totally appreciate that!
