Tribune Review editorial page editor Colin McNickle (right, off-camera left) thinks Pittsburgh is riding dirty.
Pittsburgh has been in state receivership since 2003. That’s much like a Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization. (Trib, Colin McNickle)
Hmm. Really? That is certainly repeated often enough.
And then there’s this myth of “green” technology as an engine of economic recovery. A Spanish study that liberal apologians for the faux stasis of statism just love to hate suggests just the opposite and quite dramatically. More jobs are lost than created. So compelling is the empirical evidence that even former President Bill Clinton has acknowledged green technology’s dirty little secret. (ibid)
Whoa! Them is fighin’ words!
How about using the G-20 gathering not so much as a public relations tool to sell Pittsburgh for what it is not but as a perhaps once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to expose our post-steel warts and open a dialogue to seek real solutions from some of the top financial brains the globe has to offer? (ibid)
And what do we all think about that?
