As always, old man, you simply refuse to READ THE DANG ARTICLE! The author clearly notes that the phenomenon of "job sprawl"is a natural outgrowth of the older phenomenon of "urban sprawl.". The problem is being experienced in many urban regions, and the causes, therefore are unlikely to be determined by primary by local political factors, but more local topography, numnutz! The percentage of jobs concentrated within the three mile inner ring surrounding the downtown is actually higher than that of the other 100 cities of the study, putz. As The Pittsburgh region turns around, new,high-tech manufacturing jobs are appropriately moving out of the city core, however.

It was that liberal, progressive team that appropriately and quite effectively managed Pittsburgh's turn-around after the fall of big steel and associated manufacturing. That was why the city was chosen by national leadership for the recent G20 gathering, and was just awarded the opportunity to compete for a future Olympics! Revival requires prudent investments in the private-public partnership a 21st century economy that
conservatives simply cannot comprehend. Change is always difficult for the
conservative, who attempts to dwell in the past until literally overtaken and crushed by the future of which only the more change-oriented liberals can conceive.

Just move on, pass on, and shuffle off this mortal coil, old fool, and let progress bring
us tomorrow!

As long as they stay out of the Northside and don't encounter you, the odds are they will have a excellent experience here.
