Re: “The Pittsburgh Water & Sewer Authority is working to address high lead levels, but misinformation and current testing practices could put residents at risk

Seems that a couple of morning toilet flushings and/or someone taking a shower prior to drawing water for drinking or cooking would work around the daily service line buildup.

Re: “Alternative History: The lessons learned by the demise of In Pittsburgh Newsweekly

Three things stand out in my memory of InPgh: One, the ongoing series "On the bus with Kathy Jo," one woman's experience with riding public transit in the city. Two, an interview with Christina Aguilera, about practicing singing on the 11C Perry Highway as a kid, but more recently, being able to sleep in her own bed when her tour stopped here. Three, an interview with someone about casino gambling, where the interviewee was eating a sandwich. All the lip smackings and other food noises were included, which is what made it so memorable. But the content of that story was spot-on, and worth digging up, if you can find it.

Re: “Open the Wabash Tunnel to Cyclists

Nearly every reason not to is ink-and-paper based. Nothing physical at all has to happen. True, it would be helpful if the southern connection was better. But just to get the tunnel itself opened should be a no-brainer. Pull the strings. Do what's needed. This needs to happen.

For a long discourse on the tunnel and its conversion, see this Bike-Pgh message board thread begun almost four years ago, here:…

If cyclists can manage riding through abandoned Turnpike tunnels and the Paw Paw tunnel, we can surely manage riding an empty, modern, lighted tunnel for which there is no reasonable travel alternative.

Re: “Taking Bets Now: What Will be in the former Arsenal Bank Safes?

It would help to have a respected numismatist with you when you open them. Any rare coins within can lose value with even a single mishandling.

Re: “Transit users, some in tears, warn of fallout from proposed transit cuts

Lovely. Someone masquerading as me (2nd comment, above). As anyone who knows me knows, I am not a hater of Port Authority, but neither am I a sycophant. My 2/29 testimony is on my blog (…). My letter to a known PAT hater, Rep. Mike Turzai (R-28, Bradford Woods, though his office is in McCandless) is also public (…).
