Credit where due?
Look, if you get me talking about the monetization of Pittsburgh's water authority in the early 1990's or the sale of city tax liens later on I will rant against how irresponsible the city's financial policies were through the 1990's. But I still am amazed that Tom Murphy gets no credit for the things that everyone agrees he is almost single handedly responsible for. Thus the story I see today about the city's bike trails and growing recognition in bike-world. Yet again not a single mention of Tom Murphy who was the one who pushed the bike trail system his whole time in office. It's hard to believe any of it at all would exist without those efforts.
I have said it before and will say it again... it's just a token of recognition, but let's rename the Hot Metal Bridge (or at least it's bike/ped twin some prefer) for Tom Murphy.
