Reflexively, I don't have a problem with this TIFF. I do wonder whether the "infrastructure improvements" are all very narrowly tailored to benefit Target and its consumers, or if they are broadly enough conceived to be of real benefit to residents. Present neighborhood residents. (P-G, Mark Belko)
Which reminds us, hey!, what ever happened to this visionary project, with the bids due in a big freakin' hurry? (P-G, Rich Lord, 10/28/08)
A former School District facilities chief is suing the District, Mark Roosevelt et al for having made him a scapegoat for the inappropriate affairs and activities of others. (P-G, Joe Smydo)

Post Agenda Meeting Schedule
Monday, January 26, 2009 - 10:00 A.M.
Discussion regarding Bill No. 2008-1018; the fund in the nature of an irrevocable trust, the draft defeasance agreement, and the nature of oversight in the City of Pittsburgh.
That topic is both incredibly specific and incredibly broad. I guess that makes it "incredibly ambitious". Congratulations to the Council for tackling a subject of such complexity and grave import!
BO-RING! If anybody of too much importance puts more than a half-hour's work into appealing these statistics, that's probably too much time. (P-G, Rich Lord) UPDATE: Okay Okay Okay Okay.
If anybody is interested in defending their own manifest privilege to accept free Steelers tickets, Dan Onorato shows how it's done. As a matter of fact, he's got me mulling over my position on SEA and Stadium Authority tickets (ONLY), as these are not "gifts" from anybody, and the two boards are directly relevant. But only mulling. Because seriously, you can call it "economic development", "national security", or "the ontological imperative", but are these not benefits handed out by the Steelers to their regulating Authorities? (Trib, Jodi Weigand)
Speaking of which, you all know about this, right? As hokey as it sounds, it's interaction, and it could easily evolve further. Why not appreciate it? As this will be a "Town Hall", Onorato's avatar will be required wander back and forth across the computer screen and call us "My Friends".
