"In South Lake Union there are no major plans for parks or schools or mass transit to serve any of these thousands of residents or workers."

I visited Braddock and its steel mill in the 1990s. The mill looms over blocks and blocks of mostly-abandoned streets, but you can still get a sense of what a busy place it was back when the mill workers lived right next door. Now the mill workers are from all over; I think the guy who gave us a tour said his home was in Philadelphia, he came over to Pittsburgh to work ten-day stretches.

The Carnegie Library in Braddock was amazing.

I've got to hand it to the NSA spooks who persuaded management to pay them to play WoW. That's some good work.

The real problem is all those fags that perverted a perfectly good word so now we have to say "cigarette butt". And saying "butt" makes me uncomfortable.
