The G-20 in Pittsburgh

  Along with the Penguins being in the Stanley Cup finals, the city of Pittsburgh got some exciting news last week: it will host the G-20 summit this fall.

  Part of the reason the city was chosen is to highlight its recovery from the loss of the steel industry during the 1980s.

  I’m not sure everyone in Pittsburgh would agree that the city (and the surrounding Mon Valley) would really agree that the area has “recovered” – ever been to Braddock? But compared to the economic problems the rest of the world is experiencing, a lot of folks think Pittsburgh is looking pretty good these days.

  And I’m happy to see people recognizing that Pittsburgh is a pretty darn cool city.

  By the way, I’m glad everyone set this guy straight.
