Re: “An amendment to Pittsburgh's panhandling ordinance should remind us how wrong it was in the first place

Seriously , I doubt that Bill Peduto actually called panhandlers " the scum of the earth " in public , or in a post. I do not think Peduto is that candid.
If that post is really by our Mayor Peduto , than it should be the on the cover of the next City Paper

Re: “An amendment to Pittsburgh's panhandling ordinance should remind us how wrong it was in the first place

I thought that giving people money on the street was " enabling " and as a society we should try to encourage those on the streets to seek help with our social service agencies ? Still, the reality is sometimes a fellow or a gal just needs a little help , and many people won't or can not go to a shelter. It is better to offer food than cash to panhandlers, however , in my experience , they do not want a bag or organic carrots.
Just to be clear , Audrey Glickman , who has had a problem with aggressive panhandlers , is an extremely generous, kind, giving individual , dedicated to the common good .
Aggressive panhandling if not a matter of free speech , it drives away customers , and is unfair to people trying to run a biz , or stroll down the street.

Re: “Natural Selection: Critics question choice of site for new Frick Environmental Center

I live in HAZELWOOD , not regent square . The private foundation , the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy wants to own and control Frick Park , not me.
