NT2: Nec Temere, Nec Timide — If you have ten minutes, go to Susan Arbetter's website and dial up the podcast from yesterday's show - June 3.

A Culture of Fear — Mr. R says his developmentally disabled child was abused multiple times at several state-run facilities. While the first incident of abuse took place 16 years ago, Mr. R didn't want to provide his real name, the name of his son or the facility where he lives because of what he describes as a persistent culture of fear at state facilities.

Playing Poli-Scrapple — Scrapple, a delicacy I grew up with in western Pennsylvania, is an acquired taste. Throw leftover scraps of pork butt and ham hocks into a hot pan with onion, celery, sage, cornmeal, a lot of butter and-voilà-you get a cheap, filling dinner (especially when chased with a slice of red velvet cake, another Keystone State specialty).

Spellbinding: A Q&A With Sriram Hathwar — Sriram Hathwar, an eighth grader from Steuben County, rocketed to fame last month by winning the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Hathwar, who correctly spelled such words as nocifensor, sdrucciola and stichomythia, shares the title with Ansun Sujoe of Texas, the first time there have been co-champions in more than 50 years.
