All the cat-fighting, the snits & snipes, the embarrassing disarray and airing of laundry These are all good things. They mean an earthquake DID shake Pittsburgh on the Tuesday primary. I’m uplifted.
Char, on the Comet, inspired by the leaked e-mail from Mayor Ravenstahl

Luke wasn’t there? But he was just in Harrisburg! Please, tell me that you are wrong and that he made it to this one. There is nothing — nothing — more important than getting a handle on gun violence right now.
Richmond K. Turner, on the Comet, referencing the recent PA mayor’s conference on gun violence

The problem is that each time something is dangled in front of Doug for his personal benefit (e.g. the promise of the machine endorsement or council presidency), he completely loses his mind and dives into shark infested waters head first, abandoning his sense of what’s right.
Anonymous, on the Burgh Report, about Councilman Shields

Ed Heath, on the Pittsburgh Hoagie, on respecting the O’Connor legacy

In a weird way I think that this is one arena being a woman does help – men get to wear navy or grey or black or pinstripe suits, basic ties, buttoned down shirts and that is about it. We get to have a bit more creatiivity with what we wear and I think because of it more personality actually gets to shine through to the voters.
