Re: “More routes added to PAT's real-time bus tracking system

That's great 4 folks in the city who have a bus showing up every 20 mins- but try adding the suburbs first!
#1 and the P10 are often caught in traffic- u wait & no idea what's up. Buses that run every hr only need more focus from PAT. U take our tax $ too- speed up suburbia tracking plz!

Re: “Paris 66

I've been three times this year - once for my birthday for a prix-fixe meal on a weeknight that featured oeufs meurette (think the classiest eggs and bacon in a bacon wine sauce, served with perfect toast points), lamb with a brown sauce, and a simple galette with a birthday candle; once as a French teacher at lunchtime for the student prix-fixe meal that allowed my students all to experience an entree, dessert, drink and tip for a very affordable price (so affordable we sprung for the escargots, and boy were they great!); and once with my aunt for a week-end dinner with all the fixings and a shared bottle of organic Cote du Rhone wine. All I can say is - oh la la! The servers spoke French with me the entire time (I happened to get each of the French servers once, and one of them twice, although I've seen some very capable English-only waiters at nearby tables), and I felt like I was sitting in Paris - no pressure from service, perfectly appointed meals and tables, time to talk, no pressure to leave. It was wonderful. I'd go every month if we could, and I think we're about overdue! Go, Allez-y, c'est excellent!

Re: “Pa. Governor's Race: Corbett ads making little dent in Wolf's lead

In a time when abrupt climate change is obvious, and the science pretty clear, the comment: "Tom knows that coal is a vital part of Pennsylvania's energy portfolio." is out of touch with the growing number of people who understand that fossil fuels, including fracking, is a march to folly and collapse.

Re: “Pa. Governor's Race: Corbett ads making little dent in Wolf's lead

Millionaire Governor Corbett. The king of denial.

How about these famous Corbett moments? Some of them are ad-libbed, but they capture the essence of his position.

I didn't know Ron Tomlinson was a ghost employee.

I did not know it was illegal to have campaign staffers in on policy meetings since 2011 even though I put people in jail for that.

I did not know all these people that gave me trips and gifts had business before the commonwealth.

I did not know 20,000 teachers lost their jobs. That was on the local districts. I did not fire them.

I did not know schools had a billion less to spend, just because I did not replace the stimulus funding.

I did not know the Marcellus gas is pegged at $352 billion and that the gas companies would not leave it they paid us $17 billion of that in a severance tax.

I did not know $49 million for 500 state attorneys would not be enough to pursue my agendas. That is why I spent another $100 million on private attorneys - who underscored my failures in Voter ID, NCAA, banning gay marriage and battling the Affordable Care Act.

I did not know one grand jury-vetted victim would be enough to imprison Jerry Sandusky. That is why I waited until one day after the 2010 election to go after him.

I did not know PA was even FARTHER under the national unemployment average back in 2011 that it is today.

I did not know gays are adults, capable of love and life commitment.

I did not know Voter ID would be a burden to typically Democratic demographics.

I did not know all the unemployed are not drug users.

I did not know Hispanics live in Pennsylvania.

I did not know that men cook supper.

I did not know that a woman might be sensitive to a child in her womb.

I could go on for hours.

Re: “Law School: Federal complaint filed against for-profit ITT Tech

My daughter enrolled in the one here in MS, please tell us what we need to do in order for her to not have to pay the exorbitant loans & fees they told her she will have to pay for the entire course even if she is not able to attend and right now it is just not feasible for her to do so.

Re: “Rivers Casino workers continue fight for union

I personally am a member of Unite Here Local #57 which represents the hospitality and casinos in Pittsburgh. I support the Rivers joining our team! I have great pay, benefits, seniority, PTO and many other benefits.
I stand behind a strong leadership that the people have elected. Yes they make a living but are not rich or overpaid.

Keep fighting and we stand behind you 100%.

Re: “We live in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. What's the difference between a commonwealth and a regular ol' state?

Texas is a horrible state. Ever been to Houston? Even the best area's around Houston have bars on their window's, much like Mexico.

I rank the bus lane from downtown to oakland 100% ideal. Enough bumps to keep you awake on your way to class/work

Re: “Southern Hospitality

I would have to be there the same day the critic visited. My experiences. Yes i said experiences have been horrible. First off we've had to wait about 10 minutes just for someone to come acknowledge our presence. Our food takes about 20 minutes to come. The yams or sweet potatoes whatever they are may as well have been mashed. Mac n cheese had no flavor and it wasnt cheesy. Oh Troy asked how we liked the food. I told him my mac n cheese had water at the bottom of the bowl. He said it was milk. Sigh. Clear milk huh. We keep going because my boyfriend wants to support a black business owner. Quite frankly im fed up. How much support does he need if the food n service are terrible?
