So Bill Cosby is in trouble. Why not Bill Clinton? Does he get a pass?

Re: “The Neverending Story: It's been 13 years since the state took over the failing Duquesne school system. So why haven't things gotten better?

We now refer to it as Pukane. And what could make things worse there? Having Krapavania step in with their Krap input on things. Krapavania is a miserable "commonwealth", (whatever that's supposed to mean). I cannot wait to move out of it. Only reason I'm here is for my elderly dad. After he's gone? Ciao to Krapavania and Turdtown. Randy McDaniels, TLC.

Re: “Congressman Keith Rothfus could be in danger as three Democratic challengers step up

I can only hope that one of these candidates will win. This district has been gerrymandered so badly it doesn't make any sense. We need someone who will represent us, not be a puppet. He could never think for himself.

Re: “OxyCide is supposed to make hospitals cleaner and safer for patients, but what about the staff that has to use it?

Most of us are very very sick from this stuff. The Ecolab rep just lied and told us there has never been a bad reaction. He said : "Just Google it" . He must think we're too dumb to use google....

Thank goodness! Viable candidates to run against Rothfus who has done nothing but stand in the way of progress. Let them open a coal mine next to his house in Sewickley and see how green he'll get in a hurry.

Re: “Allegheny County Judge Lester Nauhaus initially fines defendant ‘$1 a touch’ for contact with 15-year-old girl

These are kids and he needs to learn not to treat woman like that. This was not an adult and I know what he did is wrong and I don't excuse it but I am fine with the punishment. He needs to understand what he did is just not at all acceptable and he does deserve the chance to live a life without the weight of the megan law. The law has really gotten too widely used for things that are not what it was intended for. If you have never pulled a piece of lint of your friends shirt or brush the dirt off of your friend or during a game patted your teammates butt then you should know you qualify for megans law

Re: “OSHA closes complaint against UPMC over cleaning chemical, but expert says more testing may be needed

The Ecolab rep is lying and claiming there has never been a documented complaint about Oxycide. Meanwhle, 60% of my coworkers are sick as dogs.

Re: “Violent Woodland Hills incidents shed light on the role of law enforcement in schools

Maybe these kids are already criminals.
Come on stealing a cell phone. The school did not teach him that. Where are his parents... in teaching him right from wrong. These kids problems started at home... the police are just the end result of dealing with these delinquents.

Re: “Despite the number of Americans living with ME/CFS, little is known about the debilitating illness

My mother have been suffering from fibromyalgia disease for the last 3 years and had constant pain, especially in her neck,During the first year,she had faith in God that she will be healed someday by the Almighty. This disease started circulate all over my moms body and she have been taking treatment from her doctor, few weeks ago i came on search on the internet if i could get any information concerning the prevention of this disease, on my search i saw a testimony of someone who has been healed from (fibromyalgia) by this man DR Abumere and she also gave the email address of this man and advise we should contact him for any sickness that he would be of help, so i wrote to DR Abumere telling him about my mothers fibromyalgia disease he told me not to worry that my mom is gonna be okay with his herbal remedies!! actually i never believed it,, well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man i went to discuss it with my mom and explain everything to her on what she is about to take in,because Dr Abumere told me my mother must stop other medication just to make sure his own work properly,she agreed because this great doctor gave me assurance about his good work.
Weeks later after my mother start using this herbal medicine she started experiencing changes all over her as the DR assured me that she will cured,after some time i went to her doctor to confirmed if she has finally healed behold it was TRUE, So dear viewers my advise is if you have such sickness or any other at all you can email DR Abumere on: or visit his website:

A lot of district court judges are questionable in many counties ...the whole thing sucks and it's unfortunate how they can affect so many people's lives in various situations without batting an eye.

I feel bad for any victim; however, the real victimization came from being undercharged by virtue of a summary offense.

Re: “Allegheny County Judge Lester Nauhaus initially fines defendant ‘$1 a touch’ for contact with 15-year-old girl

If this is so serious why didnt the DAs office pursue charges other than a "summary offense" like misdemeanor or felony charges. Nauhaus presides over appeals from traffic tickets and appeals from minor summary offenses like disorderly conduct. So its Nauhaus fault this case wasnt handled more seriously or the DAs for not pursuing heavier charges. Maybe that is the statement Nauhaus was trying to make in his fine?? IDK though. I could be wrong.

Re: “Allegheny County Judge Lester Nauhaus initially fines defendant ‘$1 a touch’ for contact with 15-year-old girl

Almost anyone who has played sports knows the privilege that brings. Open up the door after you get dressed, and pick any girl you want. It's sick.
I've had so many friends that related this to me. The judge had an opportunity to send the privileged players in the whole school a message: take advantage of what a sick society grants you at your peril.
Now, the jocks are collecting $1.00 bills to make it rain over their victims.
Opportunity Lost, Judge.

Re: “Can John Welch rise above the circus surrounding the Pittsburgh mayoral election to be a viable challenger to Bill Peduto?

What if Darlene Harris is working with the Peduto campaign behind closed doors? Think about it. When ever she says outlandish things, the attention is taken away from Bill Peduto's other challenger Dr. John Welch. As the article points out, a three way race almost guarantees a win for Bill Peduto. Darlene Harris will only help Bill Peduto and harm Dr. John Welch. This race would of been about policy, but now it is not, it's just sad and hopeless.

Re: “Wylie Holdings has cashed in on Lawrenceville’s revitalization, but is it being a good neighbor?

Hey Pittsburgh Nick. First off, as always, thanks for reading and thanks for the input. It's always good to get different sides to stories. Secondly, I am 30, I don't like Apple or Microsoft (especially their dumb ads), I went to college in California and Oregon, my mom's family is from rural West Virginia and my dad's is from the Bay Area of CA. I love to cook and drink beer, and I love playing and watching baseball, football and basketball, but thanks for making broad assumptions about me.

As for the claim that this article is slanted or an opinion piece written by me. As clearly showcased in the article, I merely documented the facts about Wylie (their profits and their cease-and-desists letters) and then let many sources share their experiences and opinions about Wylie and land speculation. I also include the side of Wylie in numerous quotes from Joe Edelstein, which he sent via email. I actually wanted even more input from Wylie, but they refused multiple requests for in-person interviews. I also reached out to Lawrenceville Corporation and Lawrenceville United, two organizations who have relationships with Wylie, for comment, and they also refused. The article, like most articles, presents facts and quotes in a narrative, and lets the reader decide what to take away from it. As shown in the comment sections below, some people took it one way and some took it another. I have also received numerous emails providing even more points of view on the story.

Re: “Wylie Holdings has cashed in on Lawrenceville’s revitalization, but is it being a good neighbor?

The problem with this article is that Ryan obviously intended it to be read as an investigative report, when the article is really an opinion piece with an agenda. My 100% guess.... with no prior knowledge of Ryan, is that he's in his 20s and voted for Bernie Sanders..... and he's probably pro Apple and Anti Microsoft (even though Steve Jobs was probably one of the most ruthless capitalists ever). What Ryan should have stated at the top of the article is that it is an OPINION piece. Ryan obviously has no concept of capitalism and the wide ranging advancements for the human condition solely credited to capitalism. Free market capitalism is responsible for providing just about every necessity and convenience that Ryan enjoys. Those necessities and conveniences were invented or discovered for one reason....Profit. The profit motive is responsible for the greatest of human achievements.
Businesses aren't in business to provide 22 year old girls with cozy apartments. Businesses must either make a profit or cease to exist. Those are the only two possibilities. It's not Wiley's job to take care of the people in Lawrencville. But funny enough, Lawrenceville has thrived and prospered because of "Speculators." Listen, ever single business decision made by every business owner is a Damn Speculation. Business owners make and lose money based on their bets. If they bet big and bet correct, they win big. If not, they go bankrupt. When a business like Wiley becomes successful and wealthy, they create hundreds of jobs in their community. The ripple effect is what causes economic growth and success for a NATION. I'd love to have an apartment in Time Square, Ryan. But guess what???? IT'S TOO EXPENSIVE. That's the problem with the Bernie Sanders 20 something year old person. They BELIEVE that they are ENTITLED to any number of things. They subscribe to GROUP THINK. You can boil it all down to the concept known as COLLECTIVISM, AKA SOCIALISM. I'm glad that the owners of Wiley are smart enough to take a worthless piece of property and make that property valuable. The owners of Wiley are 2 people that I don't have to worry about paying more tax to support. Next time Ryan does a slanted, one-sided piece designed to make a successful business look bad, he should at least label it as an opinion piece and state his point of view. In Closing, he should've also included an alternative point of view
