1. Giant Eagle Get Go’s are selling a seasonal pumpkin spice-flavored coffee. It’s not the most disgusting thing I’ve ever tasted. But it certainly is no crack-laced, rainbows and heaven in a cup Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice latte.
Suck it, Seattle.
3. Who said it:
“This is fantastic — loops and loops of bowels!”
A. A lunatic
B. A lunatic named Cyril Wecht
That body separated into muscular and skeletal systems is the grossest thing I’ve seen since Benny’s face.
My refusal to see this exhibit has nothing to do with ethics and everything to do with tossing cookies.
4. Smoking Hot Burgher Matt Lamanna continues to put the Carnegie Museum of Natural History on the map. (h/t Jill)
5. David Conrad is doing a Christmas concert at the Carnegie Library in Homestead. This is because he rocks. Did I tell you guys this already? When we met, I asked him if he came home to Pittsburgh to relax and just get away from life and he said it is quite the opposite. Working on a television series in LA is filled with lots of sitting around doing nothing. When he’s home in the Burgh, he says his calendar is absolutely insane, usually with charity work. How can you not love this guy? (h/t Bethany)
6. State Representative Sean Logan?
“We didn’t know about any of this. That’s what angers me so much,” Mr. Logan said. “He did not inform the board about what was going on, he withheld information from the board and he went against what the board wanted and now he has to go.”
Yeah, I have a question. Isn’t it your responsibility as chairman of the board to look over financials on a regular basis and to understand what the heck is going on at PHEAA?
You had no idea that the entire staff of PHEAA spent the day at Hershey Park?
Seven million dollars in executive and staff bonuses didn’t even blip the radar of a single board member? If that’s true, you need to resign, too.
And if I were pinching pennies to put a kid through college and read that PHEAA spent over $7 million on staff bonuses … cow? Had.
