Willow Grove news, parts I & II

The judge in Rendell's National Guard-based case about the Willow Grove base (see prev. here) has ruled in the Governor's favor!
The Pentagon lacks the authority to deactivate a Pennsylvania Air National Guard unit without the governor's approval, a federal judge ruled Friday.
Of course, as Pstupidonymous points out, the feds could cut off funding and throw it back in our laps, but an interesting twist.

Still to come today, the official decision of the base-closing commission.

* Update: * looks like the decision is in and news is bad.
