Monday morning explosions

For a Monday in late July, it’s a busy news day here at the Capitol. I’m off to interview Democratic gubernatorial nominee Dan Onorato in a bit, and then Democratic Senate candidate Joe Sestak speaks to the PA Press Club at noon. Check back later for full reports on both.
In the meantime, click here for an amazing photo gallery of a Canadian stunt pilot’s death-defying ejection from a crashing fighter jet on Friday. As you can see from the photo above, this guy was about six feet from crashing into the ground when he bailed, providing images straight out of a Michael Bay movie.
The pilot is recovering and an investigation into the crash has been launched, according to CTV.
Also – Former House Speaker Bill DeWeese’s preliminary hearing is underway. Follow the epic Twitter feed of the Post-Gazette’s Tracie Mauriello for all the details.
