The shining example of Pittsburgh

We're only 2/3 the size of Mesa, AZ?

Why isn't Mayor Smith stressing out about not having any major league sports teams?

Pittsburgh is only 40% the size of Mesa in terms of area.

The Phoenix metro is huge; 4.2 million souls. With everyone leaving Detroit, it should surpass it in the next Census to enter the top 10 metros in the U.S.

Phoenix itself is larger than Philadelphia.

And, Mayor Smith already has a major league team--the Cubs in the Cactus League. The Cactus League has been huge for Arizona Tourism.

Finally, anyone notice in the comments the one person imploring the metro area to pull together and set aside parochial Mesa, Scottsdale, and Phoenix interests?

That article is pretty good boosterism because it pretends that Mesa is an actual 'city' and not just a suburb of Phoenix.

Well said, Grimace. Even so, I think shows that our much maligned "robber barons" and early Pittsburgh leaders made some pretty sound investments in Pittsburgh's colleges, museums, parks and other city assets. (They also left us some very profitable companies)

Say what you will about Carnegie, He didn't skimp on leading edge technology and efficiency upgrades in his plants and he left a flawed but fairly wise legacy.

What's happened since is very much another story.
