What gives, McK? I read through this thread about one of you own and get the feeling that racism seems to be the way the port rolls. Wrong answer, my port.......wrong answer.

EXACTLY. The house she is building will not be a big splashy Hollywood mansion; she is building a cute, comfortable homey cottage (with 4 bedrooms, of course). She chose that site because of it's proximity to the school and Renzie Park. She will be walking her children to and from school herself. She feels she can meet the parents of her children's school friends and perhaps make a few friends of her own that way. She's been to the Viking for Spaghetti Night a few times with the entire family. The kids are adorable, and have wonderful manners. WELCOME KATE!

Here is how a native, real McKeesport boy thinks.
We went to kinny-garten thru 6th grade together at G W. Remember Jon Voight, he lived on Palmgreen by the 3 hills we used to sled ride on.

A little tale not for the faint hearted...still gives me chills. Hopefully, it is just an urban legend.
Extract from an anonymous author:
Back in the day, during the McK High School Band Camp (Spring Break Session), White Lightning and I shared a room. This being our senior year, we were afforded the opportunity to stay in 2 person rooms versus the open bay bunks afforded to the underclassmen. Initially, feeling great about finally being a senior, I was more than happy to share a room with anybody. The two person room was a perk that came with becoming the top dogs of the McK High campus and I was more than happy to accept a well deserved benefit of my new scholastic status.
Unfortunately, I would end up regretting the sharing the same room with White Lightning. During my first week with room arrangements, I began waking up in the morning with morning very groggy with intense pain in my rectum and terrible headaches. Often I noticed blood in my stool. By week two I felt as the daily and trauma and pain was not going away, it was time to see my doctor. The doctors reaction was not what I expected, he had noted that this problem had been experienced four years in a row and coincided with WL's ongoing repeating of the senior class year and also of band camp (the dumb azz had been a nongraduating (red shirting?) senior for over 4(+) years and it seemed that his motivation was band camp and the sleeping arrangements. I just assumed he was a gungho Band Nerd...live and let live. Needless to say, my doctor had figured it out over the years and in this instance was able to correct the problem that had been a mystery the previous three years. Old Doc called the cops and gave them an overview of his theory.
All were shocked to discover that in that same room I had been sharing with old White Lightning contained a half empty gallon size container of ether...and multiple rags and corn cobs (don't even ask). The cops did a DNA check of all the residue that they found on the sheets that old White Lightning was turning in daily....unfortunately they were my sheets. I thought he was just being a good room mate washing my sheets daily.
They forced WL to accept a Certificate of Attendance and allowed him to depart High School and the Band quietly. The Band already had a crappy enough reputation, the officials didn't want it to really go down the crapper....please pardon the pun.
It's taken some time to get over that terrible Spring Band Camp. I watch eating foods that cause gas as I have lost the ability to control my rectal gas...silent killers or wet ones tend to be my gas responses.....binding foods saves me much embarrassment.
Unfortunately this time of year, Easter time, Spring Break time reminds of White Lightning....AKA the Ether Bunny.
This tale definitely reminds me of the dangers that we all face here in the 'Port with guys like McKWhitey running around. Be careful this Easter, McK...be very careful.

Extract from an anonymous author:
Back in the day, during the McK High School barn Camp (Spring Break Session), my Mom and I shared a stall. This being my senior year, we were afforded the opportunity to stay in 2 animal stalls versus the open ended barn afforded to the cows. Initially, feeling great about finally being a senior, I was more than happy to share a stall with any animal and was excited about rooming with my Mom. The two person stall was a perk that came with becoming the top pigs and sheep of the McK High barnyard and I was more than happy to accept a well deserved benefit of my new future foodstuffs status.
Unfortunately, I would end up regretting the sharing the same room with my Mom. During my first week with room arrangements, I began waking up in the morning with morning very groggy with intense pain in my rectum and terrible headaches. Often I noticed blood in my stool. By week two I felt as the daily and trauma and pain was not going away, it was time to see my Vet. The Vet's reaction was not what I expected, he had noted that this problem had been experienced four years in a row and coincided with my Mom's ongoing sponsorship of the senior class animals and also of animal camp (the dumb azz had been a (red shirting?) senior sponsor for over 4(+) years and it seemed that his motivation was band camp and the sleeping arrangements. I just assumed she was a gungho animal lover...live and let live. Needless to say, my Vet had figured it out over the years and in this instance was able to correct the problem that had been a mystery the previous three years. My Vet called the cops and gave them an overview of his theory.
All were shocked to discover that in that same room I had been sharing with my old Mom contained a half empty gallon size container of ether...and multiple rags and corn cobs (don't even ask). The cops did a DNA check of all the residue that they found on the straw that my Mom was turning in daily....unfortunately it was my straw. I thought she was just being a good room mate and parent changing my straw daily.
They forced my Mom to tender her resignation as a Senior Animal Sponsor and allowed her to depart High School and the barn quietly. The barn already had a crappy enough reputation, the officials didn't want it to really go down the crapper....please pardon the pun.
It's taken some time to get over that terrible episode. I watch eating foods that cause gas as I have lost the ability to control my rectal gas...silent killers or wet ones tend to be my gas responses.....binding foods saves me much embarrassment.

Polls on Topix are about as reliable as a fortune teller setting up a meeting to talk to your dead uncle.

But people that like to gossip and have no real facts like to pretend to be a 'Columbo' where in real life they act like Barney Fife..always clueless..

Dont wish for too much on the indictments ,the AG has her agenda set high ,but will settle for the low life gambling ring crooks.
Thats about as far as it goes......trust me...

All is well in the surrounding communties and paying out more than ever before...new machines sparkle in the dim lights and money coming and going like a Madam at a cathouse LOL!

Ahhhh, one of my personal favorites...resurrected.

FYI, Ted and Whoopi plan on opening a new Soul Food Restaurant at the old KFC Site. First they are gutting and redoing the entire interior/exterior, which will take months and bring much needed jobs to the area. I'm excited about this new business venture and eagerly await the Grand Opening! They are shooting for spring. More to come!

Danson was born in San Diego, California, the son of Jess Danson (née MacMaster) and Edward Bridge Danson, Jr., an archaeologist and museum director.[1] He was raised in Flagstaff, Arizona.

In 1961, he enrolled in the Kent School where he was a basketball star. He became interested in drama while attending Stanford University. He transferred to the Carnegie Institute of Technology (now known as Carnegie Mellon University) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in drama, in 1972.

When will you people take a minute & actually try to find your own answers & educate yourselves. Stop believing what you hear on the TV or read in the newspapers. No wonder this town continually elects moronic hacks back into office. Stupidity.

Did I ever tell I was a musical genius by age 7, and then I was an astronaut & landed on Pluto. Now I'm a brain surgeon & own a $3 million dollar home
on Olive St. & have 17 Mercedes Benz. Don't believe me, why not ? You believe all the other crap people shovel at you.
