Two WSJ Notes

Catching up with accumulated newspapers.  Here are two Pennsylvania related notes from last week's Wall Street Journal:

"By the numbers:  taking the measure of entrepreneurs," Nov. 12 -- Pennsylvania is ranked among the lowest states for entrepreneurship.  The infograph lists demographic characteristics of most entrepreneurs:  married, has a college degree, and from a middle-class background.  We have lots of people who fit that description; what's the problem?

"The device that saves lives, but can be hard to find," by Ron Winslow, Nov. 13, describes a crowdsourcing project to map out defibrillators in Philadelphia.    This is an interesting story.  Over 400 AEDs were located and mapped.
