Dennis, You have not lost your touch. You were always one of Pittsburgh's best writers and reporters and you remain so. It was an honor to have worked with you at the PG.

Richard Mellon Scaife was on the board of trustees of the CONSERVATIVE Heritage Foundation. While he was pro-choice (and good for him for that!) the foundations he controlled donated millions of dollars to Conservative think tanks. To be sure, he gave lotsa cash to CATO but a conservative is what he was.

Outlandish to say Foster was murdered? only to the uninformed.

Too often rightwing hate fancies itself as libertarianism.

Re: “Dennis Roddy on the death of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review's print edition

Scaife held some profoundly right wing views. Or to be more specific and more factually correct: Scaife opened the purse strings to fund many far-right initiatives.

Hard to reconcile a supposed "libertarian" view on gay marriage with his donations to profoundly anti-gay initiatives over the last 20-30 years.

But perhaps it's correct that he was not a conservative. His donations tell a story arc that is far more radical than the word "conservative" could describe.

(And the book "Dark Money" is a must read for anyone who wants a deep dive on Scaife.)

Dennis apparently never learned the difference between conservatism and libertarianism. Richard Mellon Scaife was a libertarian, and his newspaper's editorial page reflected his libertarian views, especially with respect to abortion and homosexual marriage.

Scaife was many things, but not a conservative.

Re: “As Pennsylvania’s voter-registration deadline approaches, Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald calls for Election Day volunteers

Nobody won in the debate.
On most websites, polling tells us that Mrs Clinton
gains points more or less after debate.
As a matter of fact, situation is favoring Mrs Clinton.

In the photo of Block with Clinton, I think he might be crossing his fingers behind his back.

Re: “Donald Trump in Pittsburgh: Drilling into the candidate's nonsense on natural gas

All I know is that since the Obumma administration the coal industry has taken a fall. A BIG FALL. He and Killary vowed to put an end to the coal industry and between the two of them they did just that. Do you even have a clue as to how many lives and jobs this affects? Well do you?

Re: “Style Week Launches

I read somewhere in The Beauty Insiders that 2013 was such a special year for fashion. And I can see why. With all the great floral dresses and pantsuits. I heavily influenced my style and look around that year.

Re: “Wu-Tang's RZA found his second chance in Steubenville

I went to school with his mom at Jefferson Community College. We talked almost everyday and she couldn't stop talking about her son. One day we got on the conversation about music. This was back in 1998 or 1999. She had mentioned her son was a musician and she could get me a autograph. I declined. "Most people don't amount to anything from Steubenville". She told me to look them up. The next day she asked me again if I wanted a autograph and I respectfully declined. She was a little mad but she understood. We still talked everyday in the computer room till I left in 1999. She wouldn't talk about anything except her son and how well he did. I'm glad the hard work paid off.

This would not be the first blunder of the Post-Gazette, but it would be the worst.

Donald Trump doesn't seem to have a clue. He doesn't know how the government functions; doesn't seem to care really.
I think, if he wins, he's in for a big surprise.

Re: “City Paper's live coverage of Donald Trump's visit to Pittsburgh

This is ridiculous. The man gave a speech that was more important than the insignificant protesters. You're story should be focused on the fine policies he presented today!
