Looking for a good/honest mechanic.

I recommend Franks Automotive on 26th and Cascade. He is a hard working family man who has lived in the neighborhood for years. His prices are great and he knows his craft.  (Jan 20, 2010 | post #18)

G20 Pittsburgh - Amazing Protest Video - police brutality...

There was no order to stay away, as as matter of fact I walked by a number of police officers and asked if could walk here or there, and they said it was fine. After the Plaza was full of people, and the crowds had grown for well over an hour with no mention to leave, they decided to announce that everyone must leave.  (Sep 29, 2009 | post #40)

G20 Pittsburgh - Amazing Protest Video - police brutality...

Actually, at least on Friday night, it was a lot of people (including me) of all ages who were doing absoloutley nothing wrong. I was walking down Fifth Avenue and had at least 20 or more police related vehicles go screaming down the street as if there was some kind of emergency in progress. I was surprised to get down to Schenley Plaza and find nothing more going on than people of all ages standing around talking, an old hippie playing the "Chicken Dance" over a bull horn, and ONE person, count them, ONE, person screaming something over a bullhorn. There is a huge campaign on here in Pittsburgh bringing to light some of the injuries incurred and pictures and video of police wrongdoing during this event. I know the constitution pretty well, and I am not familiar with anything in it that says you must have a permit to gather in a public place with other American citizens. Traffic was not affected until the police started to take action. So for those, especially Erieites, who weren't there, there's a lot more to this then what you may have seen or read. The "bike girl" is receiving a lot of publicity too. She obviously was walking at a normal pace not causing any harm.  (Sep 29, 2009 | post #12)

I understand that, but the original post I made had nothing to do with this situation, it had to do with something that happened in Fairview. Still very odd to me.  (Aug 13, 2009 | post #75)

With all due respect, it's hard to believe that someone from Pittsburgh just happened to find my post on an Erie forum, and that person just happened to be the mother.  (Aug 13, 2009 | post #64)

I don't think I alluded to the rider being a member of anything......my point was to see what ABATE'S reaction was to it.  (Aug 5, 2009 | post #50)

Ahhh but ABATE continues to tell cage drivers to "look twice and save a life" when it also says their purpose is to teach safety amongst it's biking brothers and sisters, although you never see any of those messages, do you?  (Aug 2, 2009 | post #17)

What happened to Greenburgs??

Thanks; I actually am amused at how pathetic someone's life must be to post shit like that.  (Jul 6, 2009 | post #8)

What happened to Greenburgs??

We noticed when we were in town over my birthday that it had closed. When I moved in to that neighborhood in August of 98, it was the first place my neighbors told me to go. The lines were always long waiting for deli, especially on Sunday mornings and after work during the week. I moved out of the neighborhood in April of 06 and remember talking to the owner around that time. He had mentioned that the Wal Marts and Topps had really cut in to his business, and he couldn't afford to compete. Even at that time, their selection of grocery items was dwindling. It was one of many businesses I noticed had closed when we were home. Very very sad.  (Jul 6, 2009 | post #4)
