Re: “13 Ways of Looking At UPMC

This is better than The Existential Poetry of D. H. Rumsfeld.

Re: “Post-Gazette's Dennis Roddy to leave, take job in Corbett administration

Roddy is a registered Republican. I don't know, but maybe he registered that way because at one time the Republican primary was all that mattered in Mount Lebanon (not the case anymore).

But I agree that you wouldn't have guessed this political affiliation, based on his writings in the past. And this career move is just sad.

Re: “City police speak on hoax investigation

The cops are clearly in a vindictive mood, and it would be a good idea for people to just stop talking to them. Even if you're innocent of the "crime" of satirizing them, or don't know anyone who is "guilty," it doesn't matter; if they question you about this, you could end up caught up in their investigation somehow. Just tell them you have nothing to say.

Re: “City police speak on hoax investigation

Bram: Look, it sucks for you that you got burned on this, but reasonable people have already forgiven you, if they ever even cared. The real issue here is as follows:

(1) Three cops beat an unarmed, law-abiding underage citizen to within an inch of his life for no reason whatsoever.

(2) The FOP, like the omerta-compliant gangster clique that it is, has consistently defended these thugs.

(3) Someone made fun of the FOP for doing this. As public figures, the FOP leadership are legally incapable of being libeled or slandered, and are appropriate figures for satire under any reasonable definition of the word in any free society.

(4) There are members of the police force who have been spending their time, paid by the public, to conduct raids on private citizens in the hopes of tracking down the cops' pseudonymous, trickster detractors. They then want to apply any bogus legal charge to these people that they can, regardless of whether it sticks, all with a view to harassing and intimidating critics of their lawless violence against a black teenager.

It is outrageous. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WiX7GTelTPM

Re: “City police speak on hoax investigation

This is disgusting. Anyone who gets raided needs to sue the city and the FOP.

Re: “False press release being circulated on Miles case

Not it!

But the fact that someone still knows enough Latin to slag off the cops in this subtle fashion earns whoever did it like, 1000 Internet points.

Re: “Poet and ex-police detective Jimmy Cvetic offers dark -- and darkly funny -- tales from Pittsburgh's cops-and-robbers underworld.

OK, so speaking of snitches, I have to ask: Is this guy related to Matt Cvetic?

Someone has actually dug up some old-time radio shows based on Matt Cvetic's lurid and ridiculous book, which you can listen to here:
