afternoon minutia

why is this exhibition happening at Ohio State and not here?

Pittsburgh public school enrollment down 6% from a year ago.... not as bad as the stock market is plunging, but close. More on this later.

Pittsburgh unique in that the office vacancy rate here is actually declining.

Read Toland struggle with how to write a foreclosure story in a place without that many foreclosures. Still odd in that the story was all about whether the state would create a $10 million dollar program to cover the entire state.. yet only mentioned (finally but still just in passing) was the $7-8 million that the feds have targeted just within Allegheny County. So if Allegheny County gets a tenth of the state program, the fed money is still 7-8 times as much. Which is the bigger story? and aren't there bigger questions about how that $7.5 million will be deployed??
