Our People In Uniform

Pittsburgh Chief of Police Nate Harper accepts condolences and gratitude in front of the City-County Building, and is even asked for an autograph.

The period for public viewing of the caskets of Pittsburgh's fallen heroes is now underway
concluded, unless otherwise informed. People are invited to pay their respects on the 1st floor of the building until 10:00 AM Thursday morning, when a funeral procession at noon will head north on Grant St. and wind around to the Peterson Events Center in Oakland. (Post-Gazette map)

Meanwhile, off the coast of Somalia, the American container vessel Maersk Alabama was today boarded and taken by pirates. The crew has since retaken the ship -- but as the pirates fled they were able to take the ship's captain hostage. More officers in uniform are being called upon to protect us, and the story is developing. (NYTimes)
