1. An attempt to out PittGirl (see June 26 entries)… and by “out” I mean “stalk.” (h/t to Eric Heyl, B., and one other reader whose email I can’t find now.)
Also, readers, be mindful that if I am outed I will have to nuke my blog. After I posted lots of embarrassing photos of the person that outed me.
2. A video of one of the promoted officers (I’m told) getting a bit pissy. That’s not police brutality. THAT’S police brutality. (h/t DW) And I’m sorry, but those bike riders come across as VERY annoying.
3. Another attempt to out PittGirl:
Video cameras scattered throughout Downtown and other neighborhoods would eventually be linked in a surveillance network, under a proposal by Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr.
A week ago, the city sent 21 security companies an outline of a plan to cast a video surveillance web from Downtown to high-crime neighborhoods, and maybe beyond.
They’re going to be combing through hours and hours of video looking for a drunk hot girl kicking a pigeon while making out with David Conrad.
4. Some planning members that voted for King Kong’s sign:
Two other members, Barbara Mistick and Todd Reidbord, also voiced support for the proposal.
“I do think it continues to add to our skyline,” Ms. Mistick said.
Mr. Reidbord said the commission was “mandated” to approve the sign given the zoning law.
“I think it’s a good sign. I like the sign. I think it does give a vitality to Pittsburgh. I think that’s what we need. We need to look forward,” he said.
Adds WHAT to our skyline? Light pollution? Yeah, that’s soooo pretty!
In what way does a sign atop a skyscraper have ANYTHING to do with a city’s vitality?
