Yeah, that’ll happen.

Lukey and that guy that’s going to lose had a debate yesterday.

Luke was his usual super-mature self.

Actually, just from snippets written in the article, it appears that Lukey came off sounding pretty decent.

I’ll tell you this though.  That boy had better have uttered a few measly “move forwards” because I about had it with this self-restraint shit on his part.

He needs to do his job to make sure that the readers of the Burgh Blog are properly soused on a regular basis.


DeSantis said he wants to “reclaim Pittsburgh’s riverfronts,” perhaps by asking railroad companies with tracks along the rivers to move them elsewhere.

    Hey, you guys with those train thingys…can you move those train tracks, y’know, the ones that have been there for 100 years and are placed along the river because the river is in a valley between two ridges…can you moves those tracks, y’know, over there somewhere.

    If we can build new subways under rivers, and we can build new interstate highways through Braddock and the such — why can’t we build a new set of train tracks? Good work, good jobs.

    There’s a set of tracks overhead right after you get off the 16th Street Bridge, after the Heinz Plant. Also up from all three sisters bridges. All dark and ugly and smelling like piss. It would be nice if they weren’t choking the northside off from downtown. Just sayin’.

    Poor Mark, he usually does pretty well thinking on his feet. He probably meant that if the train tracks are no longer being used, they should be removed. And maybe some tracks aren’t being used. Some tracks are better situated up the Allgheny river, in Aspinwall and Blawnox, and the Yacht Club and some condo’s are right on the water front, I believe. Same thing for Oakmont, I believe. So you can see where he might think, why not else where.

    The Post Gazette implied there was a gotcha moment, where DeSantis kept saying you have to talk to people, the Mayor kept insisting he is talking to people, and then DeSantis raised the issue of Tuesday night. I don’t know if it happened that way, but that is what the PG wrote. Even better because Tuesday night was about Casino design, and the forum last night was about building design.

    That photo … you have to remember to look at the person whose hand you are shaking through the whole hand shake. The Mayor has a “HIS EYES … THEY BURN” kind of look.

    Hey Joey – there have been talks going on between the city and county and the railroad operators around moving some of those tracks. The relocation of those tracks is necessary if we are to have a complete Three Rivers Park system. More details:
