You know what’s been driving me crazy? These buses around town with names of people I have never heard of in my life splashed all over them in big giant letters. I’m an informed person and I was shocked I didn’t know the people on “Pittsburgh’s Honor Roll.”
Jennie Bradley Roessing? Erroll Garner? Karl Probst?
Who the heck are these people?
So finally, my curiosity got the better of me and I looked them up to find out they are all individuals that the Port Authority thought helped shape the Burgh, but that the average Burgher has no idea who they are. So essentially, the Port wanted people to look at the buses and then go research who they are. And I fell right into their trap.
Jennie was a suffragist. Erroll was a pianist and composer. Karl is the father of the Jeep.
I’m still trying to figure out who “Ziggin Zaggin” is. I’m assuming he’s some kind of pioneering rapper.
Also, if you didn’t get that joke, you obviously don’t read the Port Authority buses closely enough.
