I live in Hesperia California and was told that only Joshua trees grow around here and Israel. Also recently someone also told me that "like the Nile" We too as in our city is so amazing because there are only two North flowing rivers in the entire world and universe and galaxy. Wow did I think I was putting together some major puzzle and secrets of the world. Thank You For Writing such an amazing paper Pittsburgh. A new friend from California Hesperia
Causes traffic, too. So if someone doesn't take his/her right of way to go straight, what happens to the drivers behind them? During rush hour, if 1 car doesn't make it through the light that should have at every cycle, what happens? Yep, the line gets longer and longer and longer. Before you know it you have a traffic jam.
I met Darryl just a few weeks ago on our visit to Pittsburgh. My son and I had a wonderful conversation with him. He's so personable and humble. I would have LOVED for him to have his clarinet to play when we met him!!
"There's A Pawnshop on the corner in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania" was number 3 in 1950s

Is there a way to call or text in using the mobile app?

Steve Seventy was My Uncle, and he was GREAT!!
Mr. Potter you have nailed UPMC on perpetrating what is known as "passive-aggressive" behavior. I also believe that a lot of "charities" sheilding themselves under 501 (3) (c) umbrellas probably need some sort of watchdog facility to monitor their comings and goings. Good work and great reporting.
He was my father's first cousin & I knew him quite well. A fine gentleman.
PCC's were trashed in Pittsburgh PA after a accident where a PCC lost breaks coming from South Hills Jct. into Pittsburgh. The car after loosing breaks in transit tunnel jumped tracks and hit the P&LE Rail Roads Fright House in the 90's. Port Authority scrapped most cars and few are used as displays in County and not in use.
What the hell do you mean by, "it was a convenient way to escape the border state of West Virginia, as any right-thinking person would want to whether they were slaves or not." I am a true West Virginian, and I never wanted to escape. I love the state of West Virginia, and I am very proud to be a Mountaineer. Chris Potter, why don't you just stick to the facts and leave your opinion out of this article because, frankly, your opinion is rude and offensive on many levels.
The Roosevelts were an old Knickerbocker (Dutch) family in New York City. Over the centuries it has been hard to lose money invested in New York City realty. They also invested in realty in other cities after learning that the richest returns come from hotel operations. There were Roosevelt Hotels all over America. One of the most famous remains the Hollywood Roosevelt in the Hollywood district of Los Angeles.
Federal investigations are not capable of alerting us that somebody "didn't do anything wrong." They can inform us when there is enough solid evidence against an individual to charge them with breaking an a specific law, but can merely provide circumstantial evidence of the many types of wrongdoing (negligence, tacit complicity, poor standards, official cynicism) which may have contributed to enabling lawlessness. Only the Lord and voters are equipped to rule on right and wrong, by making judgments on whatever information is at hand.
" And his friendliness to gay causes was more than one would have expected — or than Pittsburgh had previously gotten — from a conservative, Catholic mayor."
I'm gad you used the word "gay" instead of LGBTQ. Signing a pledge to support marriage equality hardly offsets the damage Ravenstahl has done or the lack of accomplishment.
His Administration bungled a change in the way income tax on domestic partner benefits are collected, a fail that caught many of us off guard and created financial hardships that could have been avoided with planning. But I guess that only hurt City employees so no big whoop?
His Administration failed to provide adequate police protection - as required - for the Dyke March and only did so when he was publicly called on the carpet in front of his Advisory Committee. But that's only some random women? Why can't they just be in the Pride Parade which had plenty of police protection right?
His LGBTQ Advisory Committee hasn't done much of anything. I received an email every six months or so asking me to update my contact information. No reports, no letters, no updates, no visible action. If I report a concern to them, I'l redirected to Ravenstah's staff. ???
His Administration seems to be okay with the web filter software for the City automatically labeling the word "lesbian" as pornography. The only vocal complaintant is an anti-Ravenstahl lesbian blog which is caught in the filter (me!) so who the fuck cares right? Never mind that it is patently offensive & creates a hostile work environment. It is also easy to fix so why would we expect the CIS team to address it? Competency? Bah!
Yes, Luke Ravenstahl is a friend to the affluent white gay men in Pittsburgh - and I suppose that is a step forward. Thankfully, Bill Peduto understands that the LGBTQ community includes many more people and will likely accomplish more for all of us by simply using his own car to attend the Dyke March.
THANK YOU for your devoted hails to our Chief and his innovative PPPs!
I really, really don't get how Ravenstahl got elected. Inertia is a powerful nonforce, I guess.
Yes the area does have a large history related to the coal industry like much of the small towns that supported the steel manufacturing infrastructure of Pittsburgh. This author is a moron and I'm surprised they actually get paid to write such garbage. They know nothing of the history of the Pittsburgh area. They are blinded by the modern day blithe of their culture.
