Over at the Pittsburgh Magazine site, I’ve got two new things for you to read.
1. First up is my January column “Letters I’ve Been Meaning to Write.”
I wrote to the Pirates and the Pittsburghers of the Year Jamie and Ali. I wrote to Steely McBeam and even to the Parkway East.

2. Second, have a read of my next “Five Questions for …” installment, these five for The Fan’s Jon Burton, who has a surprising part-time career in professional wrestling. I asked him about that, about who he’d most like to be in the ring with, how he feels about the NFL fine controversy, and this:

Go see what his secret talent is! I’ll give you a hint, “Ooooopen aaaaaaarms.”
