Monday Morning Housekeeping
NEW BLOGROLL HEADING: The Man Blogs. The Pittsburgh League of Young Voters will be stunned to find itself lumped in with "The Man." The Allegheny Institute ... perhaps less so. Yet this is a section for "organizational" blogs of all kinds. Be sure to check out the many eclectic Pittsburgh Symphony blogs.
CORRECTION: When you get into a pie-fight with Mark Rauterkus, be ready for a faceful of cherry-lemon meringue and custard.
We had erroneously credited Bill Peduto as Pittsburgh's first blogging mayoral candidate, and then the first blogging "major party" mayoral candidate. Although Rauterkus is now synonymous with the regional Libertarian Party, he ran -- and blogged -- as a Republican in 2001. When he lost the GOP endorsement to James Carmine, the Carlow College doctor and professor, he joined up as Carmine's webmaster. The Comet regrets both the error, and the delay in correction.
ESOTERA: Post-Gazette columnist Brian O'Neill writes a hell of a piece on the cost recovery imbroglio ... eventually. After some throat-clearing. But we understand. All hail Ram-Man, spring-loaded warrior!
