Follow those stories

PG on a story on a new anti-billboard initiative.  Mentioned before is this which really does hightlight how much what goes around, comes around. See:

Fighting "Civic Smallpox': The Civic Club of Allegheny County's Campaign for Billboard Regulation, 1896-1917, by Kristin Szylvian Bailey. Western Pennsylvania Historical Magazine, Vol. 70, No. 1 (Jan. 1987)

also in the PG is this about Marcellus Shale pipeline companies wanting to be declared utilities so they could use eminent domain.  Who mentioned that?  Which came from the Inky anyway. 

Our omni-story of the day is of course the game against the Patriots..  Does anyone  think it is odd there was never a stitch of follow up about allegations of technology misuse by the Patriots.  Some other angles were followed up on I believe, but there were some frequency-use items that seem to me were just left hanging out there until people forgot about it.

and then there's these billboards at the intersection of Baum and Liberty back in 1920.

BTW, that photo is one of 3,800+ new images added to the Historic Pittsburgh site a week ago...most taken by the Pittsburgh City Photographer.

Forgot? Please. Recall that the NFL destroyed the tapes the Pats didn't erase. No way it was going to allow reporters to review them. Look at how fast ESPN dropped that series critical of the NFL as soon as its "partner" the NFL complained.
