Three things stand out in my memory of InPgh: One, the ongoing series "On the bus with Kathy Jo," one woman's experience with riding public transit in the city. Two, an interview with Christina Aguilera, about practicing singing on the 11C Perry Highway as a kid, but more recently, being able to sleep in her own bed when her tour stopped here. Three, an interview with someone about casino gambling, where the interviewee was eating a sandwich. All the lip smackings and other food noises were included, which is what made it so memorable.

For a long discourse on the tunnel and its conversion, see this Bike-Pgh message board thread begun almost four years ago, here: http://www.bikepgh.org/mb/topic/wabash-tun…
If cyclists can manage riding through abandoned Turnpike tunnels and the Paw Paw tunnel, we can surely manage riding an empty, modern, lighted tunnel for which there is no reasonable travel alternative.
It would help to have a respected numismatist with you when you open them. Any rare coins within can lose value with even a single mishandling.
Lovely. Someone masquerading as me (2nd comment, above). As anyone who knows me knows, I am not a hater of Port Authority, but neither am I a sycophant. My 2/29 testimony is on my blog (http://bus15237.blogspot.com/2012/02/to-pa…). My letter to a known PAT hater, Rep. Mike Turzai (R-28, Bradford Woods, though his office is in McCandless) is also public (http://bus15237.blogspot.com/2012/02/my-le…).
