Re: “Pittsburgh protesters continue to hound Senator Pat Toomey during recess

Groups have been protesting Toomey since this summer regarding military sexual assault! He has always ignored constituents.

Re: “Video game Night in the Woods tells a mysterious tale of Western Pennsylvania

We recently started playing Night in The Woods. Very good art and a colorful cast of character. Really enjoying it.

Re: “Wysocki: Pittsburgh needs to step up its college-basketball game

I agree both of those d3 teams are having solid years however Penn State Greater Allegheny with a 22-5 overall record and won the PSUAC conference championship for the first time in 11 years is the best d3 level team in Pittsburgh.

Re: “U.S. Rep. Tim Murphy cancels Pittsburgh event to dodge his constituents

More "gotcha" activist grandstanding targeting GOP politicians.
Just like the "Tuesdays with Toomey" non- meetings, an activist group claims to have a meeting set up with the targeted politician.. totally without coordination with the pol. Then they can feign outrage when said pol doesn't show up.
New leftist tactics from the "community organizer's" training manual? Sure sounds like it.

Another pathetic one-sided hit piece by the CP. At least you managed to print an article without your regular anti-white racism!

Re: “Most Listable City

As a local artist with an interest in innovation and experimentation I was at first cynical about Pittsburgh. Though lots of attention was devoted to the arts, almost all was of the conservative variety, designed to feed the ego of establishment types. Over the years, however, I've noticed a heartening change, especially in the city's growing openness to originality and diversity in the arts. And contrary to what the author assumes, I've also noticed that many gifted and original artists have moved here -- partly for the low cost of living but also the exciting art scene. My only complaint is with the Pgh. Symphony, which continues to favor old chestnuts and seems reluctant to program even "modernist" works, not to mention anything contemporary -- aside from the occasional, and almost invariably lame, commission.

Re: “Deitch: The arrogance and complacency of Congressional Republicans will be their downfall

Good job Charlie! That punk has flown under the radar for too long in his service to the 1%... The Trib confirmed they wil publish my letter in next few days that deals with Repugnants generally and Rothfus specifically.

Of course he doesn't want to meet with any actual voters. He's bought and paid for by the people who donated to his campaign.

Re: “"Robot Man" and World-Record Hitchhiker

This story has a (broken) link to "Archived story about DeVon Smith". Any chance you can get that fixed? I'd love to (re-)read the 2001 story!

Re: “Pittsburgh Left: It’s a sad day when the U.S. becomes a country that people have to flee

This "newspaper" gets more racist and embarrassingly bad by the week. I hope the author can take a break from virtue signalling and learn what the term "illegal" means.

Re: “U.S. Rep. Tim Murphy cancels Pittsburgh event to dodge his constituents

Perhaps this needs to be posted in mainstream media outlets. Perhaps Twitter, as so many politicians seem to read the tweets. TV, radio, etc. It might be worth it to raise the stakes a little, emphasizing that it is not a protest, however his avoidance tactics could precipitate increased anger, frustration and principally protests. I guess I thought he tended to be somewhat more accessible. Good luck. Your questions deserve answers or at the very least, a discussion.

Mr. Deto, you are sadly in need of an editor. Is Charlie asleep at the wheel again?

Re: “Wigle Whiskey starting crowdfund to create a new whiskey museum in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh's problem is that as a city it has plenty to offer but very little of it is centrally located. Everything is scattered and isolated where transportation is an issue for the majority of tourists and visitors who have no way of getting to those places. Keep these museums near each other in a centrally located area near Downtown.

Re: “Wigle Whiskey starting crowdfund to create a new whiskey museum in Pittsburgh

If Pittsburgh is smart and wants to take full advantage of what WAM and the soon to be Brew Museum have to offer both locals and tourists then let me suggest this.


I am not sure who owns the land between the Hampton Inn and the long terminal building but across from the Homewood Suites on Smallman Street you have those open parking lots which I don't believe are being utilized.

You can build both WAM and the Brew Museum next to each other near the Heinz History Center. You'd have 3 museums nearest each other within walking distance to Downtown. Easy for tourists to get to. Instead of building somewhere in Lawrenceville, or Troy Hill which is outside of Downtown and has no mode of transportation for people to travel with.

Re: “An undocumented immigrant has spent his time in Pittsburgh serving this community. As he faces deportation, it’s time to return the favor.

"He has been an open advocate for better services for Latino children in the city schools??" So it's not enough that non-taxpaying illegals are sending their kids to our schools, now they think they are entitled to better services?? I have so had it with the entitlement attitude of illegal aliens!! They don't get that they are already criminals because of being here illegally. Like how they just drive anyway despite the fact that they can't get drivers licenses. As for being separated from his family - guess what? There are thousands of families who are separated from their loved ones because their loved one broke the law. But since his only "crime" is being here illegally, he and his family seem to think that they deserve some kind of special treatment. They want to live here, but don't want to follow our laws nor suffer the consequenses of not following them. Or even go about the process of living here legally. Can't have your cake and eat it too!

Re: “Attorney says Pittsburgh activist/undocumented immigrant Martín Esquivel-Hernandez has been deported

And, noticing the signs posted above for "Immigration Rights," what does that have to do with illegal aliens? It seems anymore that every time an illegal immigrant is held in detention or is deported, the "immigration rights" protesters come out. It is not immigrants that people have a problem with. It's the ILLEGAL immigrants that is the issue. Immigrants and illegal immigrants are two completely different things. It's like something bad happens to apples and then people start protesting in favor of oranges, when the oranges aren't even the problem.
