lower cost gift ideas

I think discretion rules and we will let this process play out before touching the whole tuition tax miasma...  but you have to wonder if town/gown relations in the city have not reached an all-time low of late. Below everyone's consciousness, but I think there is something going on in the sociology of all this. 

So for the completely uncontroversial comment of the day....   Spotted over at the handmade arcade in Shadyside over the weekend.  Showing my age but I thought this shirt was about my homophonic cousin, but probably not.  Also, GLUE may want to use this shirt as a theme. For your inner yinzer, there is this shirt.  Though my personal favorite shirt remains this one.  (others can opine what else that shirt symbolizes in town)

Also just something I caught in the Philly Inquirer about a contest they have there for identifying the "most beautiful block" they have. Is anyone doing that here?  A 'best Burgh Block' contest.... maybe a complementary 'most improved' contest as well. Anyone?  Could be incorporated into that Pittsburgh version of a Jane Jacobs walk even? 

and yes.. the 'uncontroversial' comment is a joke.  I am quite sure there are still people around who remain upset over ol Sid... probably more upset, or even more aware, than they are of anything to do with the crisis du jour in city finances.

Nice shirts. The last one reminds me of the road sign in the neighborhood which bears a striking resemblance to the greek letter "eta."

But, in your own words, the latest crisis is a daily feature on Grant St., whereas the Francisco Cabrera hit was a one-time-only moment. Hardly surprising that one resonates more than the other.
