Hometown Pride

You know, anyone who says Pittsburgh is an ugly little steel town just doesn't get it. Or they're not really looking very closely. Things have changed a great deal since the days when Pittsburgh was dismissed out of hand as a backwater burgh, full of blowsy, chunky steel workers who ate pierogies and drank beer all day.

Having undergone its own version of the renaissance, the little city that could has done pretty well by itself, and I think (in my own humble opinion) compares favorably with just about any other place in the world.

See what I mean?
