Knocking the Post-Gazette: Third and Final Try

I've been waiting for the right opportunity to criticize the P-G's SEEN section, which appears each Monday with precious photos of society fundraisers and the Social Register of upcoming events. I cringe every Monday when I see this; it's like a giant billboard advertising what a retro, old-money, upper crust-driven city some Pittsburghers think this is. (Maybe I should make my Duquesne Club comment again -- but seriously this time.) If these organizations want to raise money by throwing extravagant parties, fine. Why rub the noses of the paper's readership in it? Don't answer that question. I know.
