Cope's View

Dave Copeland noticed the "Holding Us Back" thread from earlier this week and observes that Pittsburgh's steel town image is more of a problem for Pittsburghers than for others -- who, by and large, have gotten over that association. I'm in almost complete agreement. That was part of the point of my follow-up "Psychology of the City."

But Cope doesn't answer my initial question. If we don't give out Steelers hard hats, what should we give out?
