Vibrant Pittsburgh is Not an Oxymoron

Vibrant Pittsburgh is not a bad idea. Not a bad idea at all. The organization has a new CEO, which is why it is in the news.  (As a side note:  I've complained before about title inflation, that is, the explosion in the number of CEOs in Pittsburgh.  Why does every organization have to have a CEO or president?  What is wrong with having an executive director?)

Let us hope that the effort to recruit and retain talent in Pittsburgh expands beyond the two sectors identified on VP's website -- energy and health care -- and beyond the for-profit part of the Pittsburgh region.
