From Wiki-Chair to Wiki-Steps

Too many serious things going on to think about. Let's sell the parking garages and allocate the money by CDBG eligible census tracts normalized to block level residential segregation indicies matched by revenues generated through casino taxes net of base year assessed property taxes weighted by the inverse of the euclidean distance from a light rail line except for areas already covered by tax incrementing finance districts or in neighborhoods with a branch of the library that is slated to close in the next year. Sounds like city code doesn't it? Confused?  So am I.  Maybe Potter can figure it out

OK... forget that.   But that little Pension/Parking thing people are debating Downtown?   ADB has it all figured out.  Too funny, yet as always there is more than a smidge of truth in it. 

Anyway, the (Pittsburgh) Parking Chair Wikipedia page still exists and its content has stabilized to a degree.  Here is attempt #2 at creating a Wikipedia page.  I have a first pass for a page about the "Steps of Pittsburgh"

Needs a lot of work......  and some pictures!!  Wiki gnomes and gurus, please have at it.  There has to be a horde of other pages it could link into don't you think?

I think your first reference in the "steps" entry has an error.

Here's a conundrum: If someone clears the street parking in front of your house, then puts *your* chair in that space, is it your parking space or theirs?

My neighbor seems to think borrowing both my chair (from my porch) and the space in front of my house (which I acknowledge I have no formal legal title to park in) is OK in the parkingchairiverse. Thoughts?

You can put your chair back on your porch. Technically, your neighbor stole a chair.

@ MH: agreed, but does using a stolen chair put the parking space ownership into question? These mafiosi parking rules are very difficult for us newbies to wrap our heads around...

I have no idea about the parking. Unless your neighbor is actually dangerous (i.e. drug dealer or something) or very, very old, you should yell "Don't take my chair," the next time you see him, using expletives as you feel appropriate. What you are talking about is not a specifically Pittsburgh thing or a parking. Your neighbor is deliberately baiting you.

Speaking of parking chairs, do you think the PG would run a story saying, maybe it's time to bring in your chair. It's been a month.
