Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

Couldn't agree more, this article is pathetic. Lets "stir the pot" for an issue that doesn't exist. Next, the race will be removed, kids (and grown-ups) will be saddened, all because of one idiots opinion. Next it will be, why is "The Captain" from captain crunch a man?

Re: “Pennsylvania graduates have the most student debt … again

Cal U should be the lowest in the region.

"In the Pittsburgh region, the school with the lowest average student debt was La Roche College at $27,298, followed by Point Park University at $27,924 and then California University of Pennsylvania at $26,242."

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

Really???? Giving jewelry and a purse shows how unprepared a woman is to take on a sport??? A pierogie race is a sport??? Just enjoy the entertainment value of it !
Let it go, let it go....

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

As a woman, who has never commented on an article in her life (and this will be my last), this is the biggest waste of a reading. There are bigger fish to fry than to worry about what a walking pierogi is carrying at a baseball game. If you are offended by a made up character (for solely entertainment) then you need tougher skin and perhaps never leave the house. Just a thought because this is ridiculous.

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

For all of you voicing your opinion that it is a stupid article, just remember that her job is to get you to respond. And judging by the number of responses, she did a pretty good job.

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

the author of this article clearly wasn't taking this topic as seriously as any of the outraged men commenting on it. you all seem very threatened by a women humorously drawing attention to the absurdity of the gendered portrayal of pierogies. take a seat.

Re: “Doctors risk their lives to provide abortions in After Tiller

Little surprise to me that after reading your delusional article about the injustice of a pierogi holding a purse, that I would find an article written by you supporting 3rd trimester abortions. You are what is wrong with the world.

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

Why do you make the assumption that the pierogies that have purses identify as female? You need to rethink your whole article.

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

Really, mistreatment in professional sports? Missi Matthews, Suzi Kolber, and the trainer for the Steelers might disagree with you. So would Amy Lawrence, one of the premier analysts in sports media today. And because someone in a fake costume for a ballpark gag has a purse, you took up this much column space. You must be a thrill at dinner parties. Conversational minefield I'm betting.

So dumb, it's probably to distinguish which ones which. Jesus Christ get a life!

Re: “John Fetterman: What I've learned on my recreational marijuana listening tour

Heroin is legal, as morphine. Opioids are similar and routinely to prescribed to millions of American of all ages.

Near the turn of the century Portugal proposed decriminalizing all drugs. Prohibitionists said it would be a complete disaster. Portugal actually decriminalized all drugs in 2001, including heroin, and shifted to treating the situation as a public health problem instead of a criminal justice problem. What happened? Problematic drug use decreased, so did new HIV infections, teen usage rates have decreased, drug related crime also decreased. From 2001 to 2007 reported 12-month drug use overall only went up from 3.4% to 3.7%. Most of that increase was cannabis/hash use which went from 3.3% to 3.6%, and was less of an increase than that of nearby countries that did not decriminalize, Italy and Spain [Hughes and Stevens 2010]. Overall Portugal considers it a success and has no plans to revert.

Clearly our militarized, war on our own citizens, approach has not worked. For the most part it just creates more problems (and makes some very powerful groups rich on both sides). Decriminalizing all drugs and adopting a policy like that of Portugal is worth exploring. The organizations LEAP (Law Enforcement Action Partnership) and DPA (Drug Policy Alliance) strongly support ending all drug prohibition in its current form. However, hard drugs are much more dangerous than cannabis and alcohol, and they are used by a much smaller portion of the population, so I, like these organizations do not support full, commercial legalization like alcohol, though other policies should be examined at some point. America has already "drawn the line" at alcohol, which is closer to being a hard drug than cannabis. I and most Americans agree that alcohol should be legal for adults and therefore, as a majority of Americans also agree, so should cannabis...in a just society.

As of 2018, Portugal now has far less drug related problems than the U.S.:

"Portugal now has the lowest drug-related death rate in Western Europe, WITH A MORTALITY RATE A TENTH OF BRITAIN'S AND A FIFTIETH [1/50TH!] OF THE UNITED STATES'. The number of HIV diagnoses caused by injection drug use HAS PLUMMETED BY MORE THAN 90 PERCENT."

"You cannot work with people when they're afraid of being caught and going to prison," says psychologist Francisco Miranda Rodrigues, president of the Ordem dos Psiclogos Portugueses. "It's not possible to have an effective health program if people are hiding the problem." -American Psychological Association

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

Pathetic subject for a story. Creating issues because you lack the skills do a real story? You certainly have a future in nonsensical journalism.
