MONROEVILLE, PA—While watching President Obama’s annual televised address to Congress Tuesday night, local man Daniel Markell, 46, reportedly let out a sigh of relief upon hearing the president announce that the state of the union is strong. “Oh, good,” said Markell, who switched off his television and relaxed in his seat immediately after President Obama delivered the good news. “That’s nice to know.” At press time, sources had confirmed that Markell is five months behind on mortgage payments and will soon need to undergo a costly heart surgery that his insurance does not cover.
