Someone likes the Burgh's milieu

Someone in St. Louis really likes Pittsburgh.

I feel somebody here should say something nice about St. Louis in return, but I haven't seen any of it except that airport and that was back when TWA existed. I suppose we could mention the arch, but I'm guess they get that all the time.

I've been to St. Louis a few times. It's a lot like Pittsburgh, except the hills are smaller and the rivers are bigger.

St. Louis County is a lot like Allegheny County with a lot of tiny boroughs that have only a couple thousand people in them.

St. Louis County and Allegheny County also happen to be considered to have two most fragmented local governments in the nation.

and thinking about TWA a bit.. St. Louis and Pittsburgh share the same scale of airline pain watching industry consolidation take out a major employer.

That's my blog post.

I can't tell you the welcome and the general good feelings still left over from my Pittsburgh visit. I think of it as a denser architectural cousin to St. Louis, a cousin in its quirkiness to New Orleans, and a relative in its vibrancy to much-larger Chicago.

I will be writing more on my Pittsburgh visit in the days to come.

And I will be back to Pittsburgh soon!
