I have one quote in the story: Below the bullet point: "Don't underestimate the power of community spirit and pride," addressed to Detroit leaders looking for lessons, the story notes:
More than anything else, Pittsburghers' devotion to their city seems to have kept it from becoming a wasteland. Those who didn't leave town when the mills closed have formed an emotional attachment to the area on par with the fierce loyalty exhibited by Pittsburgh Steelers fans across the nation. "People love this city like no other city in the world," said Michael Madison, a University of Pittsburgh law professor who writes Pittsblog, a blog about the area.
Absolutely true, and absolutely inoffensive and meaningless, in one fell swoop.
