Southside Issues, Bike Ninjas, Burgh Bike Radio

Sometimes, the definition of what's newsworthy and out-of-the-ordinary is a warning sign indicating that a neighborhood has a problem. From the Post-Gazette:
The Allegheny County medical examiner's office is trying to identify a man who died after he was struck by a vehicle early today on the South Side.

Police took the man's fingerprints after having doubts about the ID card they found on him. The accident happened about 1:30 a.m. in the 2500 block of East Carson Street. The driver remained on scene.

City homicide detectives are investigating.

Kudos to BikePgh for conducted a bike light giveaway this evening at Pitt. Observent people have noted an increase in unlit, dark bicyclists (aka Bike Ninjas) at the beginning of the fall semester, with new students and earlier darkness. BikePgh (with support from PlanetBike, makers of some excellent lights) distributed free bike lights, front and rear, to people who were riding unlit bikes in the dark this evening. Very nicely done.

Essential Public Radio WESA (aka National Public Radio WDUQ), FM 90.5 Thursday 10/6: a short segment on Bike Riding In Pittsburgh, being played repeatedly between 0650 and 0840. Also online at
