Re: “Isle of Dogs

I didn't like the movie, but wow this was a horrible review. It really is a shame people like this have jobs.

Re: “Where Southwestern Pa.’s delegation stand on Trump’s family-separation immigration policy

Hey Christopher. Thanks for reading. Just want to clear some stuff up about what crimes the parents are being charged of.

Illegal entry is a federal misdemeanor crime. 91 percent of parents who had children separated from them were prosecuted with illegal entry. Other felony misdemeanors include "false claims for postal losses," embezzlement, and failure to pay child support. Not all of these crimes lead directly to jail time.

Re: “Where Southwestern Pa.’s delegation stand on Trump’s family-separation immigration policy

It is Federal Law that when an adult illegal breaks the law by invading the USA they will be prosecuted , thus just like bank robbers that go to jail the "kids'" are sent to a safe space ..
Only 2000 of 12,000 are possibly related to the adults the other 10,000 made the trip to game the system. The group making all the money on this is the drug cartels

Re: “I’m still wondering about the Pittsburgh Left. No one can tell me where it comes from.

There are plenty of large intersections where I can make a complete left turn before any vehicle other than a top fuel dragster could possibly traverse the distance fast enough to hit me. In these instances, I do not consider the car to be "so close as to constitute a hazard". The current speed and capabilities of the oncoming traffic must absolutely be taken into account here. What if the oncoming traffic was a horse and buggy or something else with an equal lack of 'get up and go'? A similar situation would be yielding to someone in a crosswalk. If I'm nearing a crosswalk on the north side of a 5 lane road and a 104 year-old man with a walker steps into the crosswalk on the south side, should I really stop and wait for him??

Re: “Bike advocates call for extending Penn Avenue bike lane through the Strip District

Why not just take away all parking in the strip so the businesses go out of business because of lack of parking. The world does not revolve around the very very very small percentage of riders that do not follow traffic laws to begin with.

Re: “Pittsburgh Post-Gazette publisher hangs on Donald Trump’s jet in a ‘more than memorable’ experience

Interesting how educated Americans like Block would adhere to such an ignorant, pathological man like Trump. I think this is becoming a peculiarly American condition. What has happened in this mean's life that has caused him to become a hater? Anyway, time for every thinking subscriber to cancel their subscriptions and for all thinking advertisers to bail out.

Re: “Emiliano's Mexican Restaurant & Cantina

Terrible rude service. We stopped in for a drink around 9 and there wasn't a very big crowd at all. Soon the TV were being turned off and the staff was clearly wanting to close early. We were one of the last customers around 11 pm and just decided to leave. By the time we got to the car the parking lot lights were already turned out. Rude staff, and the margaritas, supposedly one of the best around were lousy. Would not recommend the McCandless location.

Re: “Pittsburgh Post-Gazette publisher hangs on Donald Trump’s jet in a ‘more than memorable’ experience

(June 17, 2018) It's no accident that so many major US Newspapers are now owned by conservatives (google Powell Memo).
Prior to their father's death the Blocks were known for staying out of the newsroom. Those days seem gone for now. (who got to THOSE kids?)

Re: “In new exhibit of after-hours gay clubs, local historian unearths the city's LGBT legacy

You were talking about mister Marvin Hollis who was also known as MS. Cocoa. The show was known as the lavender lad review. The bartender at the playpen for a long time was Butch who later on his own bar after working for some time for lucky in the clubs. The playpen was owned by a husband and wife team whose last name was Hannah. It was quite a Time

Re: “Libraries take a hit from Amazon not collecting extra sales tax

Another sloppy article by Ryan Deto.

Ryan, explain where you derived the 9.6 million in lost tax revenue for RAD? Please use actual math rather than vague, we calculated.

The 9.6 million is grossly overstated.

The reason we have a credibility problem in the media is from poor journalism like this.

How much were the annual Amazon sales for goods shipped in USA? What is the population of the USA? Whats the population of Allegheny County?

Re: “Domestic Spying: Tracking your loved one's cell may give you peace of mind, but what are you giving up in the process?

I went on google in search of how to take off eviction from my public records and most people on different forums kept talking about a professional . and how fast, affordable and reliable he is...I then went ahead, and told him my issues with my records. His response to my mails made me calm and optimistic about the whole thing. I made a down payment for the job and he cleaned my public records in 3 days. What a relief!...Now i don''t have to worry anymore and its so amazing. Fix your credit report by contacting him and by the time he''s done with your job, do not hesitate to spread words about his services to people in need of a professional hacker because i''m very sure you''d be glad you hired him for the job.

Re: “Pittsburgh P-G cartoonist Rob Rogers fired after speaking out against anti-Trump cartoons being pulled

It's hard to attract and retain a diverse workforce in such a racist and xenophobic area. Now we can thank the editorial page of the Post-Gazette for bringing these often hidden qualities of Western Pennsylvania to national attention. At least you'll know who to blame when Pittsburgh falls off the list for Amazon's H2Q. But the P-G might think that's a good thing. Who wants 50,000 programmers when a quarter of them might be from shithole countries.

Re: “Pittsburgh Post-Gazette moves Trump's 'shithole countries' quote at behest of conservative publisher John Block

I think John Blockhead is an asshole,but most trumpsters are in my humble opinion, I'm an old cranky Vietnam Veteran that thinks someone who evaded the draft is not the true patriot they claim to be,but most sensible people can see (cadet bone spurs) is the biggest liar in the world!

Re: “Johnstown progressives are sick of national media painting them solely as Trump Country

Gabino Amaya Cacho is the forerunner of abstract pointillism, without a doubt, before or after that artistic form, his work is admirable. Cacho also painted outstanding paintings such as Neptune, El Morralero, Concert for Venus, Girls playing in the tree, Icarus and Daedalus and The dream of Jacob, Sanson and Delilah, The Three Graces, The Ages of Bacchus.
