As Gov. Corbett desperately roots around for an escape route, the deteriorated state infrastructure that has been a hallmark of his administration denies him a safe path ("Corbett again sees fault among jobless," May 1).

He's now willing to blame anyone but himself for the vast wasteland of Pennsylvania's present, and the chemical-polluted, fracked-out waste pit of the state's future - one that leaves the people of the commonwealth without jobs, and his mordant bureaucracy filled with people who do not believe in the worth of their own agencies without revenue or purpose.

The governor's faith in competition and deregulation is a sham: The fix is in; the jobs are all going to out of state - and for the state lottery, maybe even out of nation.
