So youre taking the observation of someone who is already biased against the spoken words over the actual person involved...

Re: “Conflict over Bloomfield’s Little Italy Days festival is coming to a head. Where does it go from here?

Pittsburgh continues to decline in its regional and ethnic values. Once a multifaceted and happily contented maze of neighborhoods, friends, families, and old-world values 'The Burgh' is becoming brutal. I lived in Bloomfield/Garfield my entire life [to a point] taught at Peabody High School and at other buildings as well. The family settled and remained at the same address from 1900-2001. I grew-up in Bloomfield/Garfield, my parents grew-up in Bloomfield/Garfield/Lawrenceville, as did their parents ...and so on. Inclusion is good, but homogenization can sour-the-milk. Too many things have happened; too many influences have infiltrated; and too many progressives have tinkered. The current mayor is a hindrance, helpless, hopeless, and haphazard. His lackeys are blind followers of his doctrines and deficiencies. Pittsburgh needs a major transfusion to correct this fatal flaw.

Re: “Local barbecue restaurant responds to racist interaction at Little Italy Days

The sad truth is that NOTHING will happen to the employee because Scott Bradley is not just an employee, but the actual owner of BAB. Stacy Bradleys name was put on paper as owner to get the benefits of a woman owning a small business. So talk all we want, NOTHING will change in the BAB world.

Re: “The myth of 'We The People'

After the Civil War, Andrew Johnson sent this country spiraling backwards, Black codes, Jim Crow. Heck, Harry Truman wanted to outlaw lynching. That's what, 80-90 years after. The only thing new is the history we don't know. Today, there is a concerted effort to keep people from voting.

Re: “Pittsburgh’s Geese Police keep the birds from fowling up our waterfront

This explains why geese have taken over the area around Lake Elizabeth on the North Side. I can't walk my dogs there anymore.

Re: “Why there are so few riverfront restaurants in Pittsburgh

Please provide facts / data on ALCOSAN consistently releasing diluted sewage into our rivers. Overflow is a real phenomena; however, ALCOSAN is not to blame for excessive rain. (global warming)

Re: “Local barbecue restaurant responds to racist interaction at Little Italy Days

Anything to stir things up in the name of Racism. Let's keep blaming Trump left wing media. The race card is getting very old liberal Democrats. In fact, you should look in the mirror and see who the real hate filled people are.
You should be ashamed City Paper for stiring up this propaganda. I am not surprised though being a liberal left paper.
Par for the course

Re: “Trump’s visit to Beaver County cracker plant sparks protests

No, he doesn't care the environment. Trump wants to kill all bears coyotes lynxes mountain lions and all wild life with bomb in north America. This is not sin. This is guilt. Even lifelong prison will be not enough to redeem Trump's guilt.

Re: “The myth of 'We The People'

This country already had a civil war where millions fought and hundreds of thousands died ending slavery. To not even mention this is offense. Tereneh Idia have you even been to Gettysburg? Your ignorance in writing this anger filled vile hate piece on America leads me to believe the educational system failed you in some way. All of the opportunities available to you in this country in 2019 and you respond by writing this filth? Educate yourself. Go to the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia and witness the live performance. An African American woman put on the performance when I went and she did a great job talking about the history of this country both bad and good and she wasn't nearly as hate filled as you seem to be.

After years of hearing about what a great time Little Italy Days are, my friends and I finally went a few years ago. We were sorely disappointed!

Re: “Why there are so few riverfront restaurants in Pittsburgh

I think it's important to realize that pollution in the rivers is not something from the past, and it didn't cease when Pittsburgh's industry died out. Recent investigation piece from the Public Herald ( https://publicherald.org/pennsylvania-is-discharging-radioactive-fracking-waste-into-rivers-as-landfill-leachate-impacting-the-chesapeake-bay-ohio-river-watersheds/ ) released some scary details about radioactive landfill waste and untreated sewage pouring into PA rivers. But sewage in the rivers isn't news. ALCOSAN consistently releases diluted sewage when rainfall causes sewer overflow. Wish more was being done for the rivers and our drinking water...

Re: “Conflict over Bloomfield’s Little Italy Days festival is coming to a head. Where does it go from here?

Little Italy Days is a great event with a great location. Increased regulation is NOT needed and never helps anything. From reading this entire article, the only changes I would suggest is the organizer giving an even larger discount to Bloomfield businesses (maybe $50/day for a booth), and perhaps the organizer doing more to help the Bloomfield community (donating for increased street lights, emergency call boxes and renovations that would help the community year round) since he is making a large profit from the community. As a regular attendee of the event, the only national vendor that I do find annoying is just how many of those chicken strip/American food booths there are. I understand that not everyone going to the event is going to want Italian food, but do they really need so many of the same booth all over the event? Maybe limit them to having one or even two booths (one at each end).
