Re: “Winds of Change

Keep up the weather forecast. I don't always understand why greedy corporations let the best go??

I was a fan of WTAE however now especially in the morning I feel as I'm watching a bunch of inexperienced high schoolers with the exception of Kelli and Michelle. The weather guy is like so not good at doing the weather it's a joke!! I no longer watch WTAE

Keep up the great Whiteboard Weather forecasts, Jeff. It's great to see at 3:00 or later if we need to. You are a shining light for all of us to see!

Re: “Black History Month: Dr. Willie Parker explores his life as a Christian reproductive justice advocate and abortion provider in book

Dr. Parker is just one of the many of the growing number of followers of Christ who love and trust their womenfolk enough to support them when they are faced with difficult choices regarding their pregnancies.
See why such people are supporting and promoting http://ChristianChoice.Org

Re: “Should the Abrams House in Squirrel Hill be preserved or demolished?

The house should absolutely be preserved and be placed on the historic register.

Not only does it have the prerequisites outlined in this article, but it is one of a small number of ground-breaking Modern architectural masterpieces on Woodland Rd., that together (including the Meier house), form a small enclave that should not be broken up.

It is also significant that three of the four (including the Abrams house) belong(ed) to the same family - the Alan I.W. Frank house designed by Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius and his partner Marcel Breuer; and the Joan Frank and Jerome Apt house, by Pittsburgh architect A. James Speyer. Speyer was a disciple of one of the other greats of Modernism, Mies van der Rohe, whose influence shows clearly in the Apt home.

The Frank house was Gropius's first commission in the US, built by Alan and Joan's parents, Robert and Cecilia Frank. After her divorce from Robert Frank, Cecilia went on to marry Admiral Ben Morreell, the founder of the Navy Seebees. Joan founded the Pittsburgh Public Theater. Alan invented the first plastic top for coffee cups that was held open by a tab - a design that is commonplace today, but revolutionary in its time.

Betty Abrams was Joan and Alan's cousin by marriage. All of them have been major philanthropists in Pittsburgh.

Most of Woodland Rd. is home to a number of other architectural masterpieces, all older, among them the former homes of titans such as the Mellons, many of which now are part of Chatham University.

There are not a lot of homes in the Pittsburgh area designed by any of the greats of Modern/Modernist/Post-Modern architecture, though. To the best of my knowledge, there are only these four (although Speyer built at least a couple of others, which are scattered around).

As a result of all of this, it would be criminal to demolish the Abrams house - or to otherwise remove it from its site, because the site itself is such an important factor.

Because of all of these reasons, I urge readers to contact your City Council members to ask them to preserve the Abrams house - in situ.

Re: “After $205 million and three years of construction, Carnegie Mellon University's David A. Tepper Quad is complete

Charles Black's comments are unreasonably harsh. The CMU campus has a few eyesores (Warner Hall, Wean Hall, and Hunt Library) but most of the rest have a consistent and pleasant Hornbostel architectural style.

Compare to Pitt, which has a higher percentage of ugly buildings, and a much less coherent campus.

"Frozen field"?
