more liberal crying BS.
wonder what these chowder head CEO's are making? Don't remember hearing any of them say they were going to take a pay cut so the "poor kids" and "starving senior citizens" can keep getting their free things.
a much more important, and interesting, question this reporter obviously didn't ask is: what is the administrative overhead costs of these not-for-profit, non tax paying, of these crying organizations? I bet it is 40 cents per every dollar. If not higher.
and these clowns want sympathy and using the poor kids and starving seniors card?? Not from this chick. And not from any smart American. Finally the Feds are doing something right. And articles like this with fat-wallet CEO's soliciting pity..........what a joke.
Hang in there, Charlie. Like Steeler fans who grew up during the 80's and early 90's, when they finally cover all the bases and make it to the Series, you'll be among those who waited 33 years for '60, which remains the toughest moment in Baltimore history.
This is one week out of 52. It seems there is plenty of time left to discuss Peduto's primary victory, his run towards the general election, and whatever else we need to discuss. Plus, I would add that CP spends all year making "more mature, worthwhile comment" (and also, some that are not so mature too; hey, it's our gift, so we gotta use it) on the state of the city and its goings on. I, personally, am glad to have had the opportunity to take AJ Richardson's photograph for this issue, because god knows, I've been covering Peduto since he worked for Valerie MacDonald and, although a very nice guy, his tattoos aren't nearly as photogenic as AJ's.
"Or will they be forced to go without food and then because of poor nutrition be hospitalized?" Scales asks. "We will still end up paying for it, but on the other end."
UMMMMMM.........we already are paying for it on the other end. It's called Obama Care. Don't forget about that TRILLION DOLLAR nightmare that is about to kick in.
Socialism is bad people....it sucks on its prey (taxes) until it sucks everything dry. Then what is left? That's right.....nothing.
85 Billion isn't a big enough cut if you ask me.
Listen you retard, the candidate that was worthwhile to make the cover was Aj!!! I have a lot of respect for this guy to do what he did. He has more heart and balls than you and I put together you prick! He was on top of his game with the debates, he has a lot of good ideas and he has a heart for the people. So instead of knocking him you slimy piece of dog puke... The whole city should be saying kuddos to you Aj, for doing something most could never have done. Maybe your mother would have thought a "condom" was worthwhile and mature decision, before screwing up universal greatest with your pathetic excuse of a life! Great job CP & CD! You guys and the article/pic gets my vote!!!
@ DB -- the print edition went to press before the polls were closed. That's just how it works here; the print edition made that a little clearer. We've been providing coverage of the results over on our Blog: http://www.pghcitypaper.com/blogs/Blogh/
This is rather silly considering the significance of the Peduto victory last night.
Regardless of whether you support Bill, Jack, or even Luke, there's no denying that last night's election was a significant shift toward a more progressive-minded Pittsburgh. Both Rudiak and Gilman's victories attest to this as well.
It's too bad that CP didn't use this week's cover story to make a more mature, worthwhile comment on that shift.
If America is to ever be a strong country ,we need to cut everything possible to get out of debt ,or our paper money will only be worth the paper its printed on.
They can go get a job too.
The preceding two comments is a perfect example of why many pick and choose only to listen to Democrats. Transgender is most definitely not "gay". I doubt bi individuals identify as gay either. And the I-know-better attitude on issues of others' self-identification isn't appropriate.
Being called "cracker" is unpleasant, but to equate that with the N-word is incredibly ignorant and, yes, racist. Most racism is subtle and unintentional, but still very harmful. If you don't understand why, then you need to read up on systemic racism and white privilege. After all, you can't be a good advocate for queer rights if you don't stand for ALL queer people.
It's true what Pennsylvania says about the schools preferring to hire cheaper, less experienced teachers. When I taught there 10 years ago, there just wasn't as much supply to meet the demand - now it's shifting the other way. My friends have had great luck lately finding reasonable paying jobs on the Korean ESL Job boards. There are some you need to steer clear of but there are some good ones out there.

Unfortunately, there are some homes and a high rise on the 1000 block of Sheffield Street that need demolished and weeded out from drug deals.
Clark thinks it was a bad idea for the City to go to court to bring UPMC into compliance with the charities law, because "When you deal with a bully, you have to anticipate how that bully will behave." Later in the article, she is described as an advocate for victims of domestic violence. Has anyone else noticed the irony here?
Johnny Lee would be a rubber stamp for Wagner should both win the primary. Lee owns Coachs Bar, Banksville Plaza. Will he give up the bar for the full time council position. Lee said of Wagners are a predominate political FAMILY OF THE south hills. That's the problem political dynasties like the Wagners and Ravensthals send the wrong message. This isn't fudel England.
This clinic Tadiso is a Very Non Client Friendly Clinic, The Doctor there (Dr. Reese) Berates the Clients and Insults and Degrades the Clients Calling them Worthless and many other Negative things. I have been to a few MMT Clinics and this one is by far the Worst, It is like Pulling Teeth to get an increase on, your Methadone there and Dr. reese always pulls out this paper that some moron wrote that the Majority of MMT Patients are stable with a 40 mg Dose. This is a Very Misleading Statement as everyones body and addictions are different. I have heard from many fellow patients there who have had bad experiences there and with Dr. reese, I am NOT stable on my dose which is 60mg. My Counselor surprisingly knows Very Little about Methadone and is NO Help what so ever. I Only wish I had Private Insurance and was able to return to Discovery House which is much more client Friendly and they dont have a problem increasing your dose past 60. I am really stuck between a rock and a hard place, I am looking at options such as contacting JACO or one of the Government agencies that deals ith MMT to Voice my Concerns, I should not have to do this but unfortunately I have no other otion
Grew up in Brookline, went to Seton, and I think Mr. Lee may be a few credits short of that street degree. Rudiak has been a breath of fresh air, and done excellent work for the community. Mr Lee, who has never held an office, would be better served in listing some goals he has if elected, and not waste his time negative campaigning against Ms Rudiak. I have heard nothing from him beyond negatives toward her, and how tied in he might be with others in government. His continued focus on her not getting along with Ravenstahl is fast becoming a positive point in her campaign, and his lack of understanding that says a lot.
"She got the master's degree from CMU; I got my degree from the streets of Brookline," he says.
That's a heck of a resume you tout there John (after the age of 12, you're no longer Johnny). I'll always go with pedigree.
Good luck Natalie
Mr. Adams, rain barrels are partly to save water but mostly, as I understand it, to prevent excessive runoff which can worsen sewage overflow and flooding like we had on Washington Blvd. RE fracking, do you really want it in our urban area any more than you would want coal mining under your house? I personally come from several parts of the country and I proudly call Pittsburgh home and hardly think we're dying and appreciate what diversity and social and political debate we have. I say, let's all pitch in to make this the best city it can be!
I have followed City Council closely, and as much as I find Peduto calculating in his political correctness and disappointing in his penchant for corporate welfare subsidies, I find Rudiak to be candid, courageous and straightforward, taking on issues in a very genuine way.
