Re: “Sexist cartoons in the Post-Gazette draw ire from Pittsburghers

I have just cancelled my subscription to the Post-Gazette. I used it to keep informed about local events but this is the last straw. The Post Gazette has taken a far right turn since John Robinson Block became the publisher. I was angered at their endorsements of trump and Rick Saccone. I was also angered by the firing of the award-winning cartoonist, Rob Rogers. And now this. I am appalled that the blatant sexism exhibited by the Steve Kelley cartoons was published. It assumes that all women are gold diggers or mooch off of men. The cartoons are very offensive. Furthermore, Bezo's wife met him before he founded Amazon and they had a 25 year marriage. I will continue to get my news from reputable news sources like the NYTimes and Washington Post.

Re: “Judge Lester Nauhaus has a history of making questionable comments in the courtroom, but has he gone too far?

Why are sexual offenses even brought before a civil summary appeals-Like Nauhaus? Because there was no evidence that would sustain a real criminal conviction. That's why. Those cases should have went before a real judge in criminal law. Not a civil summary appeals judge. The DA was pressured into those charges but could not bring any real criminal charges because there was no evidence of a crime. Just like the attempted civil prosecution of groping offenses which are ripe for Megan's Law. I would have done the same if I was a judge. Civil and Criminal law are two different animals with two different burdens of proof. What was the answer to this entire fiasco: the DA had the judge removed from office because he was not convicting people they way the DA wanted him to convict people. That is the state of delusion this county is in and something we the people should be afraid. This could happen to anyone now and there will be a conviction because of the change of judges. It's a political joke played on all the honest taxpayers. This could be you next.

Re: “Sexist cartoons in the Post-Gazette draw ire from Pittsburghers

Elessa:

Often, when a man is successful, it's only because his wife sacrificed her own aspirations to support his, as was the case with Jeff Bezos, according to this WIRED article.

Re: “Sexist cartoons in the Post-Gazette draw ire from Pittsburghers

I think the point of the 2nd cartoon is that Bezos is famous for what he has accomplished, while his wife is only known for her split with him. So, to only be known in relation to a man, instead of known for her own merit, is not what girls should aspire to.
On the other hand, plenty of women out there are known for their accomplishments, so the comic doesn't feel accurate.

Re: “Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission increasing tolls and adding lanes, but does it need to?

So, an increase from two lanes to three may actually increase throughput of the road. Going *past* three, like Houston's ninehundredandfourtyeven lane road is admittedly insanity, but three? Yeah, that actually does speed up the trip to Philly and/or DC.

That said, things like the Mon-Fayette Expressway still seem like lunacy; connecting Monroeville to Morgantown at the cost of many billions costs more than tolls could ever, ever, ever recoup. It's such an empty highway they filmed a movie on it without anyone really noticing.

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 have a 496 with TransUnion and 495 with Equifax. I was considering Bankruptcy or Debt settlement. My friend advise me to contact the computer guru and I decided to write him. Last year, my car got repossessed and need a new car in the worst way. I have collections as well. I was wondering if i could get help at all until i start seeing changes when he start working on my report. He helped delete all the hard inquiries on my report including the late payments and help me increase my credit score to 790. All this is done within 72 hours and i get to see changes myself on credit karma. I have to bring my testimony here because i know how it feels to have bad report because i have been there. I will implore you to get to him if you are having bad credit. He will put it to an end within 3 days. (Computerhackguru AT gmail DOT com or (513) 453-6539).

Re: “After a sexual harassment case rocked the Mattress Factory in September, are Pittsburgh artists ready to embrace the museum again?

Thanks Katie, updated the story with more accurate information. Ryan Deto, Senior Writer, Pittsburgh City Paper

Re: “After a sexual harassment case rocked the Mattress Factory in September, are Pittsburgh artists ready to embrace the museum again?

It would be useful, as far as M. F. patrons and artists are concerned, if the specifics of this case could be made public, because at this point I don't know what to think. As an artist who has worked closely with both Michael Olijnyk and Barbara Luderowski, I find it all but impossible to imagine that either of them would be capable of the sort of harassment that's been assumed. What exactly has been alleged and who exactly is being accused?

Re: “After a sexual harassment case rocked the Mattress Factory in September, are Pittsburgh artists ready to embrace the museum again?

It should be noted here that, unless something has changed and not been announced publicly, Judith O'Toole is interim director and Michael Olijnyk is still on paid leave.

Re: “Children’s advocates say family courts unfairly favor fathers, even when they’re the abusers

PROTECTIVE PARENT ATTORNEY. This is true all over the country. This is the kind of law I practice nationally, representing protective parents, those trying to protect their children from domestic violence and/or child physical, sexual or emotional abuse. More about why this occurs and how protective parents combat it in my article, Protecting Your Child, on my attorney website, www.ArlaineRockey.com.

Re: “Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission increasing tolls and adding lanes, but does it need to?

Saying that widening won't reduce congestion is irrelevant because the turnpike isn't even congested anywhere today (except maybe at Thanksgiving). It's a mostly rural road for long distance trips, unlike the Katy Freeway example which is full of suburban commuters. The turnpike is widening in the vain hopes that they'll someday have enough drivers to pay off this debt...hard to imagine with tolls going up forever. According to a current lawsuit, it may not even be legal for PA to use the turnpike to fund unrelated projects...

Re: “Stark racial disparities exist for teens tried as adults in Allegheny County. Can anything be done to change it?

If you truly wish to be sure of your spouse sincerity, you can spy on him/her without needing to touch his/her device, its advisable sometimes to be sure of his/her true sincerity. i was able to have full access to my ex device with the help of a programmer. he was able to retrieve all past deleted files/chats, messages, he cloned her device for me. it hurts deep to see the one you love hide a lot from you, i feel great knowing the truth and way before i drowned. You can contact "" WALTERCYBERWIZARD @ G MAIL C OM"""OR text him/Whatsapp here +1 6282035003 for help in case you need assistance. He's really good and was the one who helped me. His services really affordable and he also gave me a manual guide for everything i needed to do for a location tracking device.
