Re: “The Shit List: Our guide to 10 state legislators from the Pittsburgh area who need to clean up their act

Hey everyone, thanks for the comments. Just want to address a few things. Some commenters asked why we didn't include some politicians like Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto and U.S. Congressman Doyle. This list was only for Pennsylvania State Legislators, although maybe we’ll broaden the list next time...

Also, I wanted to address one comment from Mark Tercsak, who claims that the state of California is bankrupt. While California had one of the worst budget crises in 2009, the Golden State has rebounded and is now experiencing a budget surplus (http://www.dailynews.com/government-and-po…).

California is also home to the country's largest share of documented and undocumented immigrants: 10 million and 2.4 million, respectively.

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

Unlike your views of Trump I wonder how a supposedly intelligent writer like yourself could support a vial evil woman like H.Clinton. Have you not read what she has all tried to cover up just in the past year or two say nothing about years ago and the people who wouldn't go along with them disappeared or were killed. Trump isn't the prize but Hillary is absolutely no blue ribbon winner herself.
I normally enjoy your articles but this one was far too left for me.

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.

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.
