Profiling

Written by Rob Rogers on .

It's interesting how the police and the media didn't call the Texas biker gangs "thugs" or describe their brawl as a "riot" even though far more people died there than in Ferguson and Baltimore combined. I guess there are different standards when the offenders are white.

Mad Men

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Mad Men, perhaps one of the best television dramas ever, addressed tough issues like women's rights, racism, homophobia and war. If it weren't for the amazing '60s-inspired sets and costumes, the show could've been talking about present day. That is what great television can do.

As most Pittsburgh voters know, the primary in May is more important than the general election in November, but that doesn't mean more voters. Turnout is expected to be low.

Trade Deal

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Obama wants to push through a trade deal that will make it easier for corporations to send jobs overseas. He refuses to share the details of the deal but he has no problem criticizing progressive democrat Elizabeth Warren and siding with rich corporations and republicans. This is Bizarro World.

That Reminds Me

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Less than a day after the tragic Amtrak accident, a GOP-led House Appropriations Committee voted to cut funding for Amtrak by $252 million. How cold-hearted are these people?
