Thursday: Your Real News

You tell me if these add up. Honestly, it's hard for me to judge:

"The mayor expressed his hopes to have this done by the end of the first week of September," says the Council President.

"I think the public is plugged in, they're aware of what's happening and will be up to speed when these bills come to council.", says the Mayor.

Ravenstahl said his office hasn't sent proposals to council because the ordinances aren't completed. (Trib, Adam Brandolph)

Also in that article, we learn that protesters must be obediently gassed when called upon, though apparently that is the standard.

Half of Point State Park will now be available to demonstrators, but only on the day before the summit. This article makes it sound as though far from the Secret Service calling the shots, it's really Public Safety Director Michael Huss. (Trib, Carl Prine)

Meanwhile, Vannevar is worried that we don't seem to have nearly enough officers, comparatively speaking, and is questioning the wisdom of this whole endeavor. (WWVB)


Pittsburgh Public Schools are set to receive a ton of money from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation! Big cheers for all the grant writers, researchers, and everybody else; it sounded like a grueling process. Odd though; no quote here from anybody in the District? (P-G, Joe Smydo)

Just take those old records off the shelf! I'll sit and listen to them by myself... (P-G Early Returns)

Sometimes, I feel like Dan Onorato has Jedi mind-power over the P-G Editorial Board. Fortunately, Judge Wettick appears to be a Toydarian. (P-G, Edit Board)

All our pensions are belong to state? (Trib, Bumstead & Brandolph)

  1. Apparently, they are only trying to prohibit gas masks used as gas masks. I use mine to to store Swedish Fish, so I should be fine.
