Re: “In Pittsburgh, athlete-owned restaurants are part of the culture as long as the owner is a fit

Funny thing though, Kendall was right. His word's STILL ring true.

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

This is great work. I hope that Ryan Deto or some other intrepid CP reporter will do a follow up into the wilds of places like Cranberry to interview Trump voters there. I would read that with delight.

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

I grew up in Johnstown but haven't lived there since leaving in 1985 for better job opportunities elsewhere. The Politico story has stirred up a lot of commentary from current Johnstowners and among my fellow ex-pats, for sure. I've always known that the city isn't completely populated by bigots yearning for the past, but am very glad to see them speaking out now.

Re: “Ranking Pittsburgh’s contributions to pro basketball

What credible list of local NBA talent can exclude Norm Van Lier? The pride of Midland, 3-time NBA all-star and 1971 assist leader, " Storming Norman" would have at least given you a nice, even Top 10 list.

Re: “Impeach Trump

Your paper has become nothing but a liberal rag and a waste of time and space for people who actually have a brain and are not brain washed such as yourselves.

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

Happy to see these responses. The attitudes displayed in the article, AND the apparent inability to accept change of any size, shape, flavor, would lead the rest of the aware world to write off Johnstown. They're hateful and stubborn? OK, then, be that way, and buh-bye.
But if those voices are truly not representative, speak up and speak out. America is NOT a White Christian country, and neither coal nor buggy whips are coming back to fuel an economic engine.

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

As one who grew up in Johnstwn I was sickened at the notice that we, African Americans, do not work. These are the same people who worked with my father, brothrrs in the steel. I am sick and tired of reading stories by racists. It should stop. Steel mills are not coig back. They support Trump no matter because he is the Chief RACIST in the Whie Housr.

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

Speaking for my self only, knowing a few people in the article, I am embarrassed for our area. Unfortunately he took a small sample from our area and made them our voice.
In his first article, he found these people outside the rally. And as we all know, they tend to be VERY vocal.
The follow up has the area talking. Which, to me is a good thing. We need to speak louder than our racist counterparts in this area.
I am as much to fault as many. I tend to speak my mind,in small circles, not wanting to make waves. But, it is time to flood Johnstown again. This time with our outrage. Our community is better, smarter more rounded, more grounded than the persons he choose for his article.
We, collectively are not as narrrow minded as the sample he pulled.

Re: “Some of Pittsburgh’s Republican suburbs are turning blue

We in suburban Pittsburgh and all over the country have become much more politically active and aware. Toomey and Murphy have totally abandoned us in their pursuit of Republican Draconian policy. Thank God we're done with Murphy. The blue wave will continue. The Orange Moron has embarrassed us and taken us back to the 1900s. We will not go back!!! #PERSIST #RESIST

Re: “A Pittsburgh-native winemaker makes good in California

As a Pennsylvanian and Lynmar club member, I encourage anyone to experience this wine and the beauty of the winery.

Re: “Some of Pittsburgh’s Republican suburbs are turning blue

Democrat Allyson Minton won a seat on the North Allegheny school board. It is believed that she is the first to do so.

Re: “Sign the petition, call your Congressional reps, let’s impeach Donald Trump

Yo Pgh City Paper, I believe it is time to put Hillary, Billy Boy, Mueller, Comey, and that Muslim traitor Obama in prison, yesterday. They sold the Russia"s 20% of our uranium supplies and no one is talking about said sell. The Clinton Foundation received 145 million dollars and Congress was by pasted by those criminals....That's TREASON! Snowflakes are you still continuing to view/listen to FAKE news. No wonder you have no clue what that Witch (she is one in real life) Hillary is up to. Snowflake's have you looked at the stock market, unemployment rate? Some of the 80,000 companies that left during the traitor Obama's 8 long long long years are starting to come back. So you snowflakes instead of asking, "do you want fries with your sandwich" will have an opportunity to work at a real career, after you graduate. It's time to wake up snowflake's and leave the DNC plantation!

Re: “Pittsburgh City Paper editorial team calls for impeachment of Donald Trump

You are a weekly entertainment paper. Very few readers care about your leftist political opinions. Alienating a large percentage of your readers is not a wise strategy. Especially for a publication with an increasingly irrelevant business model such as yours.

Re: “Pittsburgh becomes first U.S. city with year-round UPS bike-delivery route

Gregg, the article states that would only be used downtown so the hills aren't going to be a significant issue. While there may be some issues with snow on occasion they'll have regular delivery trucks as back up.

Re: “Pittsburgh is not lacking Thanksgiving-style dishes

So sad that you mentioned JUST Mad Mex their knock off goblrito and only two other options after that. You could of done so much better. Guess you had a short trip home to type this out on your smart phone. Just saying. Waste of an article.

Re: “Despite the number of Americans living with ME/CFS, little is known about the debilitating illness

Come view the film and invite your family,friends, and doctors to watch. This is a documentary about CFS/ME. It is being considered for an Oscar nomination and has won an award at Sundance.
