The Sausage Factory

I had a long and pleasant conversation last Thursday afternoon with a writer freelancing for the Chicago Tribune, regardin a post-election story about Pittsburgh's Mayor. As is customary in journalism, all of that got boiled down to a couple of pithy quotations in the story, which was published today (link here). I'm not really sure what one of them means. There are common quibbles with the piece -- Does Pittsblog really keep watch over the city's politics? And I wonder why the writer didn't mention my day job? -- but at least my name is spelled right.
