Say it Ain't So, Bram

The Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Pittsburgh Comet.

Three Champions.

We have read that the Pittsburgh Comet may shut down.
Say it ain't so.

We'll build you a stadium.
We'll give you a sweetheart deal on the land.
We'll arrange corrupt financing.
We'll make closed-door backroom development arrangements.
We'll ignore Council and the voters.
You can ride in Burkle's jet.
We won't pay anybody a living wage.
You can put up all the digital signs you'd like.
Zoning won't be an issue.
Don't sweat the neighborhood issues.

We'll do these things, not because you'd like them, but because
they'll give you things to investigate and blog about.

Say it ain't so.

Oh, it's so.

Thanks, V. A tempting offer, but I don't need a stadium or anything. I *am* happy with the public art project on the corner of Grant and Liberty though. Maybe there will be a clumpy statue of me beneath it one day.
