Re: “Check out The Abbey on Butler Street, in Pittsburgh’s trendy Lawrenceville

I mean, the place is fine - better than most of what Lawrenceville has been regurgitating lately. These descriptions, though, are wildly exaggerated and inaccurate.

Re: “Check out The Abbey on Butler Street, in Pittsburgh’s trendy Lawrenceville

Deeply Old World atmosphere? Iconoclastic? Pittsburgh's newly hip clientele?

Huh?

Nah.

Re: “You don’t have to like Ted Cruz to respect his snub of Donald Trump

Anyone who claims that a sitting United States Senator in his mid-40s, who came in second in a presidential primary, will "never, ever be elected to the White House" because of a speech is clueless about American history.

Re: “A trio of female athletes will carry Pittsburgh’s hopes into the Summer Olympics

"I rank the warm-weather games as second-best because you can’t take an event seriously if it includes ping-pong and badminton." Maybe you should come down to South Park Table Tennis Club on a Tuesday night before dismissing ping pong so easily.

Cruz is a great man, but he doesn't need praise from liberal journalists in the same way Jesus Christ would not accept praise from demons.

Re: “A trio of female athletes will carry Pittsburgh’s hopes into the Summer Olympics

BTW, before you write Windsurfing off as "old school" you need to know that Windsurfing is here to stay. It deserves Olympic status. The sport actually has roots to Pennsylvania. See:http://www.nytimes.com/1998/09/28/business/patents-blow-blow-inventor-windsurfing-found-his-place-sun.html

Re: “You don’t have to like Ted Cruz to respect his snub of Donald Trump

You need to check your facts. Trump wasn't in the audience with his family during Cruz's speech. Go back and watch the video. The picture of a disgusted Trump and his family was (I think) during his son's speech. Don't believe everything you read on the internet!

Kitesurfing was not added to the 2016 Olympics. The May 2012 vote was reversed in November 2012. Kiteboard Racing does not belong in the Olympics.

Re: “Pittsburgh Left: Pittsburgh Pirates' Jung Ho Kang should sit during sexual-assault investigation

Apparently you haven't read about Patrick Kane's recent run-in with some groupie who "was raped". When the rape kit came back negative, the woman's mother tried to concoct some story that it was tampered with. She stated that she found the rape kit on her front porch (which turned out to be nothing more than the "victim's" clothing in a bag that was sent home with her from the hospital).
The broad then dropped the charges because it was causing undue stress on her and her family. Which is codespeak for, I didn't think I would actually have to be questioned by the police multiple times and this would be some long, drawn out process with criminal liability on my part should it be discovered I am lying. I assumed I scream rape and I get my big check.
