The new metro gazelles?

So if you want to see the gloomiest  (or at least the darkest) picture of Downtown used in an upbeat story see today's headine.

Reuters: Only three major U.S. cities see economic recovery: study

What 3 you have to ask?  Lots of ink on this one from all over, but nary a mention locally? Even reverb over the pond of the story.  Curious.  Maybe the reference to 'Brookings' got confused with the bigger news today here about 'Brooks Brothers.

Addendum:   ha, and h/t to Jim R. who points out the Atlantic Cities coverage of all of this, and in particular how folks are so unused to talking about Pittsburgh, some still drop our 'h'.  Although they seem to have corrected that already.  So yes, I over-infer a bit of cognitive dissonance in the typo.  Still nary a single mention of this in any local news.
