Just who are the EIE? Well, once upon a time, we were pretty high up at the State's official history agency. We were members of the Executive Staff and reported to the Executive Director. I was the press secretary, Gloria was the marketing director, and Marcia and Joan ran the Pennsylvania Heritage Society. Edie, who was on her way home from Texas today and unable to attend, was legislative liaison.
Gloria was the first to wise up and moved on to greener pastures outside the agency. When Gov. Rendell moved to town, things changed. Edie was exiled to the Bureau for Historic Preservation (where she became a shining light, doling out millions of dollars). Mr. Rendell canned all the press secretaries, and I was exiled to the Division of History to run the historical marker program. Marcia and Joan's office had already been moved to the Keystone Building -- the place to which Edie and I had been sent. Thus we became Executives in Exile, banished from the fabled Fifth Floor of the State Museum building..
Oh, and I even vacuumed out the Box so it would not be too disgusting for Joan and Marcia to ride in. I thought of taking it through the carwash, but I am too cheap.
