Great article. If it would have included something nice about Mt. Washington (the LaMont, the Guyasuta statue, anything) it would have been a well-balanced article, but it's still a great article.
"Andy Masich, president and CEO of the Sen. John Heinz History Center, the largest history museum in the state, thinks the airport can use a few additions, and is recruiting actors to portray famous area natives such as Fred Rogers, Andrew Carnegie and Jonas Salk to greet G-20 dignitaries and media."As a native Pittsburgher who has now lived in five of the G20 nations, I can confirm that none of the G20 delegates will have heard of Fred Rogers. And if you can tell an actor impersonating Andrew Carnegie fom an actor impersonating Mark Twain, Edmund Gwenn, or Burl Ives, then you are a keener student of history than any of the attending economists or politicians are likely to be.
