Down to Earth

I agree with the Comment that it's foolish to wait 20 years and hope that Pittsburgh improves by then. But that's not my read of the Rand report, or of the Rand op-ed. I don't suppose that anyone thinks that we can or should sit around and do nothing for 20 years, and hope for the best.

What we can do is look around for ways in which we can make the city and the region better, and we can celebrate ways in which others are doing the same.

Today's suggestion is from the business sector, courtesy of a friend: A company in Warrendale, PA called Renal Solutions, which could use a sexier name but which is apparently making some nice progress on the biotech front.
