Re: “Your Pittsburgh cat needs a Pittsburgh toy, like a felt pierogie

I'm surprised that local stores like Pittsburgh Center for Creative Reuse and Artist and Craftsman aren't mentioned as go to stores for these supplies, but corporate giants are! Great project though.

Re: “Tarentum man carries on the legacy of ‘That Guy with the Birds’

Wonderful to see! I saw John on a few occasions doing shows in different places. As an owner of 14 birds myself, I had great admiration for him. So happy to see Kenny carry on his legacy.

Re: “We Take Brunot in the Morning!

I'm a descendant of the Cumming family.....3 generations of which had owned and lived on the Brunot Island prior to it being sold....the land was farmed and the produce taken to market in Manchester and Allegheny City. I grew up listening to stories about life on the island...the family is no relation to Fortescue Cuming to my knowledge.

Re: “Turning the Tables

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.

Re: “Mike Wysocki’s Pittsburgh Pirates PNC Park 15th-Anniversary Team

Actually, now that I am waking up, AJ could easily replace either Maholm or Benson.

Re: “Mike Wysocki’s Pittsburgh Pirates PNC Park 15th-Anniversary Team

I'd go with the one year of Volquez over Benson.

Re: “Replanting Cranberry

This is an old post I see,I'm interested in the 18+/- acre spot at the corner of little creek and rt.19.
I had a vision last night. Let's call it a spiritual awakening because He literally woke me up out of my sleep to start sketching plans for a business venture that has been the desire of my heart for a long,long time. With that being said,can you please give me a call and let me know what your vision is for that piece of property? My name is Anthony...724-841-7532. I know what my vision is and I would just like to know if I can make my dream and/or life purpose come true.

Re: “Ponying Up

As a new breeder I say PA as the best chance to make money as I keep my horse to race. After my first two foals being PA I decided to reduce my risk and breed to a NY sire. Now I have to decide to breed back and it will be hard to go back to PA with all this turmoil. Harness Racing will only survive if the fans/bettors return in force. The slots money has already started to be reduced.

Re: “Quarterback Controversy: Adding context to the Michael Vick signing

America has long looked at Public Figures, Celebrities & Athletes as role models. Michael Vick should not in any way be considered a role model- he has failed miserably as a role model & as a human being. Unconditional Love Foundation has received many messages & seen comments about how we should forgive Michael Vick, move on, he has paid his debt to society, he made a mistake, he is sorry etc. Sorry but we do not agree. Electrocuting, beating, drowning, shooting, hanging dogs and making dogs fight to the death for years is no mistake- it is reprehensible. Michael Vick did not make a mistake- he made a conscious decision to kill and torture dogs for his own amusement & financial gain. His only regret is getting caught. We have all seen photos & videos of Michael Vick working on his anti-dogfighting campaign, rest assured he is not doing that because he is reformed or cares about animals- it’s a PR stunt called damage control. Don’t believe me then look at the video below where someone who adopted one of Vicks dogs tries to talk to him. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, I think we have made ours pretty clear. Something else we want to make clear is Unconditional Love Foundation cares about people, pets & the planet and we do not condone any acts of violence, abuse, neglect or cruelty to any living being.

Re: “Quarterback Controversy: Adding context to the Michael Vick signing

Worry about your own life. This goes for the blogger and everyone still holding hatred towards Vick. He paid a huge price for his deeds. Turn your energy toward hanging those all Street cats tht robbed the nation and Automobile Giants that got a bail out on our dime. Your priorities are messed up.

Re: “Quarterback Controversy: Adding context to the Michael Vick signing

Vick is the model image of anyone who has made a mistake and redeemed themselves—like you. He has apologized and continues to speak out and donate to animal rights organizations. Why can’t people forgive him?

Re: “Quarterback Controversy: Adding context to the Michael Vick signing

I'm white and don't give a rat's patoot if the Great Satan, Michael Vick was green and crawled out of the swamp. So these tired accusations of "black man get bad break so must be whitey's fault", simply hold no water with me.

As for those who natter about rapists, pedophiles, and serial killers committing far worse crimes, you are completely correct. But read a little further down and you will see that 100% of these types of criminals began their illustrious careers pulling legs off of bugs, tying cats tails together and tossing them over clotheslines, or stuffing firecrackers in the mouth of a dog with its muzzle taped shut.

When the squeals of animals didn't suffice, they turned to humans, John Wayne Gacy, Ted Bundy, Richard Franklin Speck, Jeffery Dahmer, the list goes on and ALL started on animals.

If mostly white folk want to overpay each weekend to watch mostly overpaid brothers to bash the hell out of each other, then more power to them. We are, after all, a county that thrives on capitalism and blood sports.

But do not hold the Great Satan, Michael Vick as something more than he is. At 35 year old has been. A sociopath. A liar. A felon.

At a million dollars, Steeler fans should demand half their money back. You overpaid. But that's your problem. I shall simply watch with not a small amount of schadenfreude when the Great Satan gets his bell rung. By his own team mates or the opposing team. Doesn't matter. Just as long as they knock his lights out.
