I only ask questions
"This is not a sign of weakness but rather one more step on a clearly chartered path to Chrysler's revival."
If such a statement is even marginally true for Chrysler, what would an actual bankruptcy for the City of Pittsburgh mean. How about this quote from the Prez saying that Chrysler will emerge "stronger and more competitive"
City finances not on the top of the news except for some election exhortations? True enough, but compare the debt situation here to a city that actually has filed for bankruptcy: City of Vallejo, CA. No, Act 47 does not count even as bankruptcy-lite as some describe it. Bankruptcy is bankruptcy. .
Put another way, what would be the state of the city today if it actually went through a bankruptcy in 1993 when it literally did all but run out of money to keep the lights on.
Speaking of the city. Random newsoid on the mayoral race. This isn't really news in itself, but I find it curious that a Youngstown TV station chose to run a summary AP blurb on the mayoral race here in the city: Pittsburgh mayor has heavy financial advantage in primary. It also has a curious line in it that describes Pat D. as, and this is a quote: "a 41-year-old first-time council member once perceived to be a Ravenstahl ally".
huh? a one time Ravenstahl ally? I missed that somewhere along the line. Not sure that is the main tag line a challenger wants to have out there.
