Re: “Donald Trump in Pittsburgh: Drilling into the candidate's nonsense on natural gas

Donald Trump doesn't seem to have a clue. He doesn't know how the government functions; doesn't seem to care really.
I think, if he wins, he's in for a big surprise.

Re: “City Paper's live coverage of Donald Trump's visit to Pittsburgh

This is ridiculous. The man gave a speech that was more important than the insignificant protesters. You're story should be focused on the fine policies he presented today!

Re: “Looking for the next NFL star? Woodland Hills High School is the place to go

SMH - hes saying "in that same time" (since 2000)

All you had to do was read the sentence to see you were wrong, not him.

I am also trying to find a phone number for a local Hillary office. Is it a secret?

Re: “Pittsburgh activists block street to protest Dakota pipeline

thank you very much for covering this story!!

your link on the line "Local activists are collecting supplies to send to those camped out in North Dakota" does not appear to link to information about said supply drives?

the supply drive that was mentioned at the rally is mine. I'm collecting donations at Scratch Food & Beverage (1720 Lowrie street) in Troy Hill through this saturday!!

here is a link to the flyer with info:

Re: “Q&A With @keeppittsburghdope Photographer Chancelor Humphrey

Where I come from, having style means your Steelers jersey is mesh, #10, and reads "Stewart". Having style means the t-shirts you wear were given to you by a previous employer.

Style goes beyond the clothes you wear. Having style means you know how to live with passion and grace. Style means you understand Duke Ellington and James Street Gastropub.

I think I will have my kid bring me to one of these Creatives Drink events. I'm not creative but I do drink.

Re: “Greetings from Mexico … Pa.: Central Pa. town with a strange name shares its border with a growing Hispanic community

I believe it was called Mexico because the US Immigrants from France where merchants of that time had just began extensive trade with Mexico out of Phi. Penn., it was an exciting time the new influx of culture and goods. My merchant family is from PA also married into a Mexican family during this time. Bryan, Boire and Lagurenne and BEAUVAIS

Over 1,500 college kids die each year from alcohol. Prolongz drinking causes permanent brain damage also. I share many articles about the struggles that colleges have on soberworld.org. Facebook soberworldorg

Re: “ScareHouse and Bricolage team up on a new escape room

Enter the Imaginarium was like walking into a piece of artwork and trying to find your way out.....but wishing you could stay. I went in alone, curious and thinking I wasn't all that smart -- met nine strangers who teamed up, put our heads together and worked our way through this glorious maze -- each member of our assemblage (including two children) contributed insight and teamwork to help solve our way back out. I feel victorious and I wanna go back. Thank you Daedalus, for giving me my wings! <3

Re: “Alternative History: The lessons learned by the demise of In Pittsburgh Newsweekly

Three things stand out in my memory of InPgh: One, the ongoing series "On the bus with Kathy Jo," one woman's experience with riding public transit in the city. Two, an interview with Christina Aguilera, about practicing singing on the 11C Perry Highway as a kid, but more recently, being able to sleep in her own bed when her tour stopped here. Three, an interview with someone about casino gambling, where the interviewee was eating a sandwich. All the lip smackings and other food noises were included, which is what made it so memorable. But the content of that story was spot-on, and worth digging up, if you can find it.

Patti wasn't there, hasn't been on this tour at all. The only woman onstage (Besides the local violinists who left after the first song) was Suzy Tyrell...

Re: “Pittsburgh City Paper Booze Battles: Scratch Food & Beverage vs. NOLA on the Square

The original Sazerac used cognac rather than whisky until due to a shortage of cognac and an abundance of rye whiskey coming down the Mississippi River that started it's journey in western Pennsylvania, rye became the standard. I prefer mine with cognac. And now with the change in the law you can use real absinthe.

Re: “A proposed highway cap won’t help the Lower Hill

Can't wait to see this project get underway. The arguments against it hold no weight. Misguided frustration, apathy toward government, I get it. This, however, is a beautiful idea, funded by a grant specifically designed for THIS project, that will transform an area of downtown that is frankly inhospitable.

This is a practical means of helping the Hill. While symbolic means like the August Wilson House are great, there needs to practical means as well.

It'll be great, haters will come around.
