The McKeesport Daily News has done it again.

In Monday's article about the honorarium for Homestead Mayor Betty Esper, who by the way deserves the tribute, Former state Senator Mike Dawida allegedly noted a famous Robert Kennedy quote: "Don't ask what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country."
"Betty Esper has done for Homestead just like he said," Dawida noted.

First of all, the quote was incorrectly attributed to ROBERT Kennedy when in fact it was his brother President John F. Kennedy that said "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country".

So who is the nit wit here? Is it Dawida? After all, he was a big proponent and pusher of the County Executive system we have in Alleheny County. Instead of three commissioners running the county we now have one dictator with about fifteen county council members that can't get out of their own way. Maybe Mike is ignorant of historical fact.

Or could it be the writer? JFK probably said his famous quote about 39 years before she was born. God only knows what is taught in school these days.

Or do you suppose it might be the newspaper editor? He misses a lot of other stuff so why not this? The Daily News was once an outstanding paper but these days it would be hard pressed to compete against a good high school newsletter.

That's my bitch for today, now I'm going to read the Post Gazette...

Post gazette will tell you about fat cops standing around on calls. As details are correct if not politically. Give that doughnut smile as you do nothing. Lower the ones that pace at calls and give it to the cops that want to work!

Who's BTR? Where does he live? Where is the tent? We need specifics.

Is he a fat cop living in McKeesport?

Are the cop fat? Are the cops lazy? Where is this tent? Lol, fat lazy immature cops in McKeesport. Who is BTR? A fat lazy cop living in McKeesport?
Where is the tent? Why would people meet in a tent in McKeesport? Is the city falling apart? Yes?
McKeesport must be a mess!

Clearly there is a nutcase in Mckeesport, or many.

Guy from Mckeesport has a lot of mud slinging but zero fact. Whoever BTR is, certainly a idiot living in some dump called Mckeesport.

Fantastic job, indeed.

>>>>>Additional ly, Ms. Mamas said in court filings that city Solicitor Jason Elash repeatedly ignored phone calls and letters from her in 2008 and 2009, then failed to show for a December committee meeting.

>>>>>Mr. Elash said Mr. Robertson and Ms. Stokes had a falling out after the settlement, and they refused to sit on a committee together. Mr. Robertson said he was never asked to sit on a committee by Mr. Elash or anyone else from McKeesport.
