Re: “Cyclists wonder why Pittsburgh streets and sidewalks were plowed, but bike lanes went untouched

There are plenty of people who ride all winter in other cities, including Minneapolis and Finland. They aren't "hardcore". They just have governments that prioritise *people's* access to streets over cars'.…

Re: “Pittsburgh City Paper to begin using they as a singular, gender-neutral pronoun

The Telegraph (UK), 2012: "If someone tells you singular 'they' is wrong, please do tell them to get stuffed."…

"The backlash against it, it seems, is one of those things, like the war on split infinitives, sentence-ending prepositions and using "hopefully" to modify a sentence, that aroused the ire of some self-appointed 18th-century grammar guardians who didn't really know what they were talking about, and their ill-informed pettiness has poisoned the well for the rest of us."

Re: “District 4 challenger John Lee says he has a winning game plan for election — and the district

I find the fact that we even have candidates trying to out-yinzer each other, and generally touting the fact that having spent their entire lives in the City, ridiculous.

Aside from the idea that the diversity of experience and knowledge gained by having lived in other places just might be a good thing, does anybody else think perhaps attracting and retaining new residents just might be helped by, y'know, not actively trying to make them feel unwelcome?

Re: “Under the Bus?

Funny, I thought the reduced drink-tax amount was 7%. Maybe that's part of the problem.

$3M may not be a very large proportion of the overall RAD budget, but it's a hell of a lot to arts groups whose budgets are measured in the hundreds of thousands.

(Why is RAD spending $14M+ a year on the stadiums? Maybe *that*'s the money that should be given to the buses--bet more people ride the bus than go to football games in a year, too.)

Re: “Peduto hits Ravenstahl on PAT funding criticisms

"Port Authority participates in several audits each year and also audits itself on a regular basis." Five years of independent annual audits, along with copious other documentation, are available on the website at […]. Go to town.
