those who leave by force

Already covered all around is the Sporting News' ranking of Pittsburgh as the #1 sports town in the US. What is remarkable is that they rank 399 regions! There is some obsessive benchmarking.  We are the anti-Auburn, NY which came in last. How do you come in last in something like that? And Williamsport, PA is #382.  Doesn't the Little League World Series count for anything?

More interesting to me at least:  Sporting News has a brief look at making of the the nearly iconic cover photo of Ben and Sid which turns out was taken in Duane Rieder's studio in the Rosetta Stone that is Lawrenceville

I should probably leave this for Jim to comment on better than I... but yet another diasporan-journalist is the Sporting News' Pete DeCoursy who explains the the greater meaning of it all.  The title of the post comes from his piece.  More evidence it's all a conspiracy.  Jim R. may really have nailed it.  The vast diaspora coming to rescue us one way or another.

I'm intrigued by the "Rosetta Stone" comment. What exactly do you mean? Lawrenceville is the key to understanding other things?
