The city mourns one of its most beloved characters, former mayor Sophie Masloff, her beehive hairdo as recognizable as any Pittsburgh landmark. We're going to miss you, Sophie!

Militarized

Written by Rob Rogers on .

The fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by police in Ferguson, Missouri led to public demonstrations which then led to police action. The problem is, the police showed up with military transports and weaponry. Not exactly a sight that instills trust and peace.

Air Drop

Written by Rob Rogers on .

I have no problem with the U.S. air-dropping supplies to the stranded Yazidis on Mount Sinjar in northern Iraq. It was the right thing to do. Now let's show the same concern for our own hungry citizens stranded in poverty. That's also the right thing to do.

Rep. Mo Brooks (R- Ala) says there is a "war on whites" happening in this country. He clearly hasn't been watching the same news as the rest of us.

Nixon Resignation

Written by Rob Rogers on .

It has been forty years since the Watergate scandal forced Richard M. Nixon to resign from office. Jimmy Carter, elected as a backlash to Nixon, only lasted one term. Since that time, only two Democratic Presidents have been elected, and both have been under siege by republicans in Congress. Clinton was impeached and Obama might be. This is a sad state of affairs.
