Friday's DN: A political text message warning prompts PA Society tensions

District Attorney Seth Williams sends City Controller candidate Brett Mandel a text message to "watch his back" around union leader John Dougherty, who naturally finds out about it because Williams inadvertently sent the message to several people.  And U.S. Rep. Bob Brady makes a casino pitch to the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce.

Gov. Corbett says his policies are meant to help the state's economy. Will Bunch asks: Is he really just increasing the rate of unemployment in Pennsylvania?

Speaking of Corbett, a revised financial disclosure form shows that a businessman connected to the Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling business spent $1,422 last year to fly the governor and his wife to Rhode Island and put them up in a hotel for a vacation.

And the city dedicates a new juvenile justice center.
