The costs of success

NPR had a couple other pieces on Pittsburgh that ran right during the tsunami of G20 coverage last week.  If there is a 'transformation' story worth telling about Pittsburgh we really can't foget those who paid the most for that success:

Workers transform after loss of steel


The former lives of Steelworkers

also a piece ran on foreclosures in Cleveland with references to what has happened in Pennsylvania. See:

Clues to Cleveland's foreclosure crisis.

These were all done by Rico G. who did the piece on the Pittsburgh diaspora that did air here of course.  Rico is actually Pitt '89... Who knew?   Just another datapoint in the vast diaspora's vast influence on the global media.   All of this positive press of late is a conspiracy I tell you.
