HEY, PENNSYLVANIA. We need to talk. Before we get started, let's take a moment to get centered, Mr. Miyagi -style, with a quick deep-breathing exercise. There, that's better. So here's the deal: after another week of embarrassing episodes - the Inquirer caught state Supreme Court Justice Michael Eakin trying to have a supporter appointed to the Court of Judicial Discipline, and state legislators continued their useless pissing match over the state budget - we got to thinking about the state of, well, our state.

Thick skin may seem to be a requisite for elected officials. At the turn of the 20th century, however, Pennsylvania Gov. Samuel Whitaker Pennypacker found himself nearly crushed by a cartoon. Born in Phoenixville, Pennypacker (1843-1916) taught himself several languages and served as a judge before winning the governor's office in 1903. Many distinctions attach to his tenure: the passage of the 1905 Child Labor Act, the appointment of the state's first commissioner of forestry, and the establishment of the State Museum of Pennsylvania.

The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services said Friday it would no longer license the Berks County facility where undocumented immigrants and their minor children are detained pending asylum proceedings. The facility is subcontracted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement as one of three family detention centers, including two in Texas. Last year, a federal judge ruled that federal authorities cannot detain children of undocumented immigrants in centers that are not licensed by state child-welfare agencies.

Roughly 500 Pennsylvania inmates serving life terms for murders they committed as teenagers will be given a chance to argue for their eventual release under a U.S. Supreme Court ruling issued Monday. In a 6-3 opinion, the justices made retroactive their 2012 decision that sentencing juveniles under guidelines that make life without parole mandatory is "cruel and unusual," an acknowledgment that minors should not be punished for criminal acts in the same way as adults. The ruling affects more than 1,500 inmates nationwide, who must now be granted new sentencing hearings or the opportunity to be considered for parole.
