We got ForceCast friends in high places! Check out this email from faithful ForceCast listener Zach Hoover, who happens to be the Chief of State for Pennsylvania Senator Daylin Leach:Two quick Star Wars stories that recently made my life better:
A while ago, I saw a picture from Fan Days of Dave Filoni sporting a Pittsburgh Steelers jersey. Since I'm a Pittsburgh native and a massive Steeler fan, (I help put both the Lucas kids AND the Rooney kids through college...) I dropped him a note. Turns out he graduated from high school with my older sister, and he was kind enough to write back and included what must be the greatest doodle in the history of doodles. I've attached it in the hopes that you'll find a way to rub it in Jason's stupid Browns-fan face.
Second (stick with me - I promise there's a Star Wars reference), my boss recently introduced legislation to provide treatment for Pennsylvanians struggling with eating disorders. I am particularly proud of this bill, as it is the first that I largely researched, wrote, and rolled out myself (I am connected to the issue through friends). Now, each bill introduced during a legislative session is assigned a number based on the order in which it was introduced. I swear I didn't do this on purpose, but what number would the bill be assigned besides Senate Bill 1138? I know the ForceCast is apolitical, but I'd love it if you could give SB 1138 a shout-out, and ask Pennsylvanian listeners to call their State Senators and ask them to sign on as co-sponsors. I've attached a picture of a graphic we used at a recent press conference for proof...
Thanks - take care of yourself. If you ever find yourself in Philadelphia, you know someone who owes you a drink.

Thanks Zachary! Best of luck with the senate bill! I think the Force is at work here....
