Brewed On Grant: Undercover Dispute

Written by Rob Rogers on .

County Controller Chelsa Wagner is threatening to withhold funds from VisitPittsburgh because they donated money to Bill Peduto's Undercover Boss episode. Some of that money is taxpayer money. I am not sure Wagner has the jurisdiction over VisitPittsburgh funds but she definitely wants the mayor to know she does not approve of the donation.

Free College

Written by Rob Rogers on .

The conservatives never question how we will pay for the wars and the tax cuts for the rich, but ask them to spend a little to give kids two free years of community college and suddenly we have no money.

Broken Legacy

Written by Rob Rogers on .

The NCAA recently reinstated Joe Paterno's wins after an overambitious and egregious punishment related to the Jerry Sandusky pedophile scandal. What JoePa knew and when he knew it is up for debate, but his coaching was not. It was the right thing for the NCAA to do, if a little late.

Iranian Diplomacy

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Speaker of the House John Boehner has invited Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to congress without consulting the POTUS. He is clearly thumbing his nose at Obama while also attempting to sabotage the nuclear talks with Iran. Way to start the new year, GOP!

Deflated

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Bill Belichick and company are up to their old tricksy tricks. Or at least it would appear that way. Whether or not the Patriots are guilty of cheating, this is the last thing the NFL wants people talking about before the Super Bowl.
