News Tidbits

My attention has been elsewhere recently, but still, there are interesting and amusing things in the local news:

The City of Pittsburgh is having a pledge drive. It seems to me that the donations would come rolling in if it could give away coffee mugs and hired Click and Clack, Michael Feldman, and Nina Totenberg.

CEOs for Cities will hold a national meeting here in 2008. [Here is the group's website.] There's nothing but good news there.

Pittsburgh and Cleveland could buckle up with a tech belt. So much old money, so little time, goes the thinking. But some of that old money is leaving for New York. Whether it's belt or suspenders, perhaps Pittsburgh could use some new money.
