I did my part in the 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, and watched the century turn. I have failed and failed miserably in my efforts to get people to see what the city was doing, the free housing, the high rise buildings, the union mentality, the bigger and bigger government, the destruction of the neighborhoods , the constant promotion of "downtown" and the decline of the schools was simply the wrong way to go, The government ideas of Roosevelt, as adopted by Pittsburgh, simply killed the city. I have failed, I must now warn the current generation and hope that the ones who have not left will wake up someday. I have retired from activism and sit back now, watching and commenting. I do question, however, how many of these scribes actually live in a city neighborhood?

I live in the South Side.

Regardless, hopefully the "current generation" keeps voting Democrat on a federal level and Republican on a local level.

Better yet, it would be nice for a viable third or fourth party to actually reach polarity with the two versions of the same pile of bullcrap.

Since you hate Pittsburgh so much, why don't you just GTFO?
Unless you do your part and leave, then you're just part of the problem, my friend.
I can see you just hate it when intelligent, well read people make very valid points!

Do you,or have you ever, worked?

I don't hate it when people like myself (intelligent and well-read) make very valid points. But they're just so hard to come by on this website, especially on this particular board.

Of course I work, I have since I was 16 years old.

wow i'm not surprised that Pittsburgh still has ignorant racist people speaking out so negative about blacks.. here is something folks might find interesting about the early years of east hills..(where i grew up)in 1960 when it was all white people which were the only ones that could buy a house there at that time were getting ripped off by their own kind by being promised a community offering all sorts of comforts that never materialized from catrenel realty, 5 white families took the developers to the court of common please in 68 for being misled by their "own kind" Lol,, i thought that was funny especially because we are the ones (blacks) that are supposed to be the ignorant ones. js..
