    Data shows Pittsburgh, and the rest of the country, just keep getting warmer
      Pennsylvania had its second-warmest year ever in 2006, and the same is true for the other 47 contiguous states, according to data compiled by the NCDC. The American Lung Association also rated Pittsburgh the second-worst metropolitan area in terms of airborne pollutants.

  • Scooter Commuter

      Francine Porter thinks that President Bush's decision to keep former vice presidential aide Lewis "Scooter" Libby out of prison is worse than the Watergate scandal. Porter, and about a dozen other protesters, stood outside of the William S. Moorehead Federal Building July 6 holding a large banner that simply said "Impeach."
  • OUTstanding

  • Homophobic material nixed from Kennywood dive show

    The park's stage show, "Pirates of Kenny Cove," included a segment which one local mother found homophobic.
      The offending scene depicted a crew member in need of mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, until a crew member with a limp wrist and a lisp proclaims, "I'll do it, sweetie." After parent Mary Hawk and a group of friends complained, park officials scrapped the reference.

      "No one here was sensitive enough to pick up on it," says Kennywood spokesperson Mary Lou Rosemeyer, "but we responded and it was an easy thing to change."
