Rich Lord of the P-G does the deed, laying out the status of the new regime in police officer secondary employment. Whether he acted more like Cringer or Battle Cat while doing so, will be left for historians to judge.
To the eyes of the Comet, this article contains new news. The city is proceeding with plans to centralize the assignment of all of the details at Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins games, and at various bars and restaurants. The duty, and the considerable perks, will be stripped from varying bands among police officers.
No mention from the Mayor's office on this continuation of progress.
Lord also confirmed that the cost-recovery program (by which the city would recoup lost wage taxes, recovering costs for equipment and administration) is still dead.
The Comet holds that the former issue, of deploying the security assignments, may have been paramount (and there may still be devils in the details). But the cost-recovery program is still significant.
Now it's time for the analysts to take over.
Will the Honzman be our He Man? Will Ruth Ann be She-Ra? Will Potter be our Man-at-Arms? Will Eric Heyl continue to play Orko?
We don't know who, in this alternate universe, would be the mighty and evil Skeletor. But we can tell you two things. Due to their mutual affinity for water, someone from the firefighters would have to play Mer-Man. Which would make Beast-Man someone from the police officers.
