1. More David Conrad yumminess. Again. Shut up. (h/t to honda driver)

2. Pat from Where Have You Gone, Andy Van Slyke reports on Lukey’s commencement address at W&J:

The unfortunate report on Mayor Ravenstahl’s commencement address at W&J is that he did not once utter the phrase “moving forward.” It was found twice in his biography in the program for the speech, but he didn’t say it once. It was probably because, as he told the audience, “This is the first speech I’ve written since my victory speech after being elected to City Council.” He instead substituted the phrase, “I wasn’t lucky. I was prepared, and had an opportunity,” which he must’ve said 15 times in his 20 minute speech.

I would say his bio is definitely endorsed by Lukey, so two drinks!  Yay!

3.  The electronic sign over the Parkway East now implores drivers to “SHARE THE ROAD [pause] WITH ALL VEHICLES.”  Is this necessary?  Are there some big bad Hummers trying to drive all the Geo Metros off the road?  Hummers are SUCH bullies.

4.  iJustine (yeah, the hot one) tries to feed the pigeons in Market Square.   (h/t to Woy)

5.  The bonus points have been awarded to “Judy Peckingham” (the female pseudonym of Carbolic Smoke Ball‘s “Judge Rufus Peckham”) for getting “movin’ forward” published in the election poems. (h/t to John A)

6.  Sonni’s grad photos are up at KDKA.  Of course she looks perfect as usual.  Be sure to also check out the PIMPIN’ photo of Paul Martino circa 1975 … bay-bee.  Well, you can totally tell by the way he uses his walk that he’s a woman’s man … no time to talk.

    Could someone please tell me why we’re supposed to give a shit about the graduation picture of producers, web people, etc. from KDKA? I don’t know what the hell they look like in the first place — so what does it matter what they looked liked 5 or 10 years ago? At least the pictures of the on-air personalities give you something to compare.

    As for Paul Martino — my man! That’s one of the best pornstaches I’ve seen in my life!

    So THAT’s what Sonni looks like under that trowel job of makeup they slap on her. That’s better but … feh, still not as easily impressed as y’all. HDTV is not going to flatter a lot of these people …

    If that’s a real cop and gun, he is being real careless w/it and iJustine. Loaded or unloaded, easy to overlook a round.

    He should have shot the pigeon…

    DW, I believe she is on the set of Kill Point, so I’m guessing he is one of the movie cops and that is a prop gun.

    Every cop should have to log one pigeon death per day. I need to be police chief.

    I believe the “ALL VEHCILES” sign is referring to motorcycles and part of the whole “Look twice, motorcycles are everywhere” campaign PennDot* has been pushing the last few summers.

    * I’m assuming it’s PennDot, I have to proof one way or the other here.

    Sonni needs a new do. Her hair overtakes her entire face.
