Catching Up on Local Politics

The Pittsburgh Open Government Initiative failed to get on the ballot, but its backers (adopting their best A.S. accent) say: We'll be back. Open Government is no cure-all. If Pittsburghers had known how badly the city was being managed, would they have risen up en masse and retaken the strings of government?

But maybe it's a step in the right direction. How can you tell the players without a scorecard? Until there's better communication from the powers-that-be, Civic Cards, based on the South Side, is here to help.
