Dan Fitzpatrick of the P-G warns us of a gathering robot invasion of Pittsburgh by Carnegie Mellon. At first we thought it'd be like the awesome dinosaur invasion of several years ago, which made narrating the Just Ducky Tours a heck of a lot easier, especially during long traffic delays. But it turns out these are going to be actual, functioning, boring robots.
Yesterday, the P-G endorsed Bruce Kraus in the 3rd by a whisker over Jeffrey Koch. In so endorsing, they seemed to reveal a blanket preference for challengers over incumbents, not that there's anything wrong with that.
Pittsburgh gives rise to some unique conservatives, as evidenced by Fred Honsberger's bellowing defense of the smoking ban.
Mayor Ravenstahl is getting serious about minority hiring, reports the PG's Rich Lord. The blurghosphere should applaud, opines the PH's Matt Hogue.
There are ten days left until the election!! (h/t Bill Peduto, who like us, reads The Note, h/t the Trib's Vellucci & Wereschagin. We wonder if Bill dislikes its new cluttertastic layout as much as we do.)
