yin(z) and yang of Pittsburgh

I have to premise this by saying that given just some of the news I read of late, it is my humble opinion that there must be some hallucinogenic gas being pumped into all offices down at the city county building these last few weeks...  Hard to imagine we are a role model for anyone at the moment.

Nonetheless, Toronto is getting the next G20 meeting and the Globe and Mail has this story today:

How Toronto can shine as a host city: Pittsburgh has tips for success during and after the international event.

So two G20 meetings within just a few hours of each other.  Someone should be playing up any Pittsburgh-Toronto connections out there.   The article says that one result from the G20 meeting is that Oman is considering an investment here.  I should sign up as honorary consul.  I think I have spent more time in Oman than most anyone else in town.  Maybe an incidental story on that for the weekend.

Did anyone ever try to use the Google News thingy to quantify how many stories on Pittsburgh and the G-20 were actually written by the international press in the run up and wake of it all, and then do a content analysis of sorts?

Aren't there schools of journalism for such stuff!

The Germans were writing home about us since at least 1787.
