UPMC Santa

Written by Rob Rogers on .

UPMC is continuing to be the Grinch this holiday season by making no effort to work out a deal with Highmark to renew their mutually beneficial contract. The patients are the real losers here, no matter what insurance they have.

Newtown Anniversary

Written by Rob Rogers on .

It has been one year since the shooting at Newtown where 20 children and six adults were massacred. The only one celebrating on this sad anniversary is the gun lobby. Nothing has been done to prevent this kind of thing from happening again.

Remember Mandela

Written by Rob Rogers on .

It is hard to watch Obama and other world leaders celebrating Nelson Mandela's life-long fight for freedom and justice while in their own countries those same leaders deny justice to their own prisoners.

Selfie

Written by Rob Rogers on .

In case you missed "selfie-gate" ... here is what happened. While at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela, Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning Schmidt decided she wanted a "selfie" with British Prime Minister David Cameron and President Obama. A photographer caught the action and it went viral. The rest is history.

Brewed On Grant: Mayor College

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Bill Peduto was at Harvard last week for a gathering of newly elected mayors from around the country. They were there to study things like municipal finance, crisis management, public safety, etc. I wonder where Lukey went to school.
