Development Czar

The City of Pittsburgh again has a development "czar": Pat Ford, recently head of the Planning Department. Reading the P-G report and summaries in the Business Times and the Trib, it appears that the job of the "czar" isn't really so imperial. Pat Ford will try to make it cheaper and easier for businesses in Pittsburgh to build stuff and hire people.

A good thing? Sure; why not? But he's not a czar.
