Honor or burden?

Written by Rosa Colucci on .

The local politicians said it is a great honor to have the G-20 summit in Pittsburgh.

Bus and T service will be greatly interrupted; businesses are closing and a lot of employees will not be paid; parking garages and streets will be closed; schools are closing, forcing the children to make up the days at a later date and working parents to have to make other arrangements; larger security forces are needed, and much of the cost comes out of the taxpayers' pockets. I consider this a large burden.

Let's all hope this privilege is given to other towns in future years.
