Misexplained that once sentence. D registration under age 35 in city of Pittsburgh looks to be down a bit over 5% over last 4 years.
Since that was kind of direct. I concur that City of Pittsburgh Democratic Party votes cast in the 2009 primary works out to 12% under age 35. I'd be a bit cautious about casting aspersions for a number of reasons. That election came immediately after the fall 2008 general which had very anomalous impacts on younger voter participation. Current Democratic party registration in the city of Pittsburgh looks to be down over 5% from the time of the 2009 primary. Elderly registration looks to me to be down under 4%, so that may be close to a wash, but number registered between 40-64 looks much unchanged. So the weights are not going to match 2009 no matter. If you try to reweight results from a credible poll (and I'm not characterizing this poll any one way or another) you are doing exactly what the 'unskewed' guy did last fall. That didn't work out so well. It if is not a credible poll to begin with, then it makes no sense to use it at all, reweighted or not.
I'll try and address the registration by district later.
Keystone Politics (a blog not to be confused with the outfit Keystone Analytics) points out that KA projects 18-34 year olds will make up 7% of the electorate next Tuesday, when they have comprised 12 and 13% of it in 2005 and 2009 respectively. Percentages being what they are, that means more mature groups are also being overrepresented in the poll. That doesn't mean KA is skewing things intentionally, but it's an odd decision on their part meriting an ask.
Peduto's base has enough experience with Ravenstahl that it is inoculated against complacency.
Walking like a duck (Wheatley and staff assailing Peduto while ignoring Wagner) and quacking like a duck (funded by Ravenstahl who is also running attack ads on Peduto). That's a duck... specifically, a duckling trailing behind this lame duck regime.
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.
Horrific Behavior By Staff - DO NOT GO - PEOPLE WALKED OUT THEY WERE SO APPALLED
Came in with a friend who lives 3 hours away and we asked the hostess if we could both use Groupons. She told us yes, and I asked...even if we are at the same table, and she said yes again then my friend purchased one. When we got to the back they said we could not use it since we walked in together. They said the hostess was new and it was her first day. (even if it was true...which I doubt...they shouldn't have her own her own if she isn't trained...she represents the business). When I tried to explain that they needed to honor what they told us up front, they got rude. I asked to speak to a manager and was told there wasn't anyone there (on a Saturday night...right!). The waiter printed the Groupon rules which said one per group and insisted that since we walked in together we were only eligible for one at the same table. So I said fine..my mom and I will go to another table, so we got up, got back in line and were seated at another table. We figured that would be the end of it but hear them yelling at my friend across the room. The woman got in his face and told him to leave. I started to head over to see what was happening and the other folks at the table got up and left and told them they did not like how they were treating us and said they were taking their business elsewhere. I told everyone I was done too and was preparing to leave when the woman that was in my friends face finally said she would call her supervisor for an exception then seconds later (super fast call to explain everything that happened) said she would make as exception because she didnt want us to post anything negative on the Internet. Ummm...TOO LATE! You do not behave that way to paying customers, especially in front of a 10 year old child that was with us! If your hostess didnt tell us that two groupons were ok, my friend would have never purchased. The fact that we asked that you honor your word and you turn rude and nasty and get in our faces in front of a child is totally unacceptable! I was trying to take my mother out for a nice dinner and you completely ruined our experience. You should be ashamed and embarrassed as a business. We will never be back and have already started telling everyone as know what happened so they never go either.

There's already a band with that name.... and they're better

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.

It is her house. This is the address on every court-related document.
It always comes down to the money. Campaign Finance Reform Now!!! PS.... Let's stop electing lawyers.
If all those out-of-town (state!) donors moved into the city. . . could be golden!
Let's not stop at the municipal or state levels. We can demand campaign finance accountability at the level of the contest for president. Please join other voters making their voices heard:
If the first European born settlers got there in 1803 chances are African folks were there at least that long ago.
So that's what I saw in the dumpster behind his office.
Eric Y is a talented dude. Secret weapon. A real innovator...
Heh, they do us all, Chris.
Eric Yeschke (of Expensive $hit, Raw Blow, etc.) recorded this record at The Nerve and did a wonderful job doing so!
