  • The Tribune-Review Editorial Board Distorts Obama (and Climate Science). Again.

    24 May 2015 | 7:19 am
    Here's the whole mound of malinformation in today's Tribune-Review:President Obama used his commencement address to the latest class of the U.S. Coast Guard Academy to once again elevate “climate change” to a “serious threat” to our national security. He even blamed the rise of Boko Haram and Syria's civil war on climate change. Thus, erasing any remaining doubts that this president is the most delusional in our history. What's next, blaming ISIS' Christian genocide on global warming? [Bolding in original.]In order to unravel we have to back to the source material, the president's…
  • On Thomas Sowell, Presidnet Obama's and Rhetoric

    23 May 2015 | 8:48 am
    This week in the Tribune-Review, we found this column by Hoover Institution Senior Fellow, Thomas Sowell.(I point out Sowell's fellowship at Hoover only because, according to the bridgeproject, just over a quarter of Hoover's foundational support - $12,602,900 out of $49,772,197 - came from Scaife foundations.)Anyway, in the column that starts like this:In a recent panel discussion on poverty at Georgetown University, President Barack Obama gave another demonstration of his mastery of rhetoric — and disregard of reality. Sowell does his own fair share of rhetorical flourishes and disregard…
  • The Trib, Stephanopoulos, and the Clinton Foundation (oh, and the late Mr. Scaife)

    21 May 2015 | 7:54 am
    From today's Tribune-Review:Ah, I've been waiting for this one.I've been waiting for the day for someone at the Tribune-Review to point an ink-stained finger at the Clinton Foundation and the allegations of influence buying made by Peter Schweizer's anti-Clinton harange, "Clinton Cash."I'll let another Scaife-funded "news" service explain the right wing outrage: ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos on Thursday apologized in a statement to Politico's On Media blog for his previously undisclosed donations totaling $50,000 to the Clinton Foundation. "I made charitable donations to the…
  • Who Is Mike Sigov and is he auditioning for Jack Kelly's Post-Gazette job?

    20 May 2015 | 11:38 am
    Let's start with the first question and I'll leave you to deal with the second amongst yourselves.So who is he?  At the bottom of a column posted today in the Post-Gazette, we read this:Mike Sigov, a former Russian journalist, is a U.S. citizen and staff writer for The Blade of Toledo, Ohio (sigov@theblade.com). The Blade and the Post-Gazette are part of the Block NewsAlliance.So he's at least an employee of the Block family.  If he is next in line for token wingnut columnist at the P-G, at least they already know where to mail the check.Today at the P-G Sigov's running with this…
  • Meet The Candidate - Rosemary Crawford

    14 May 2015 | 12:17 pm
    [Third of the Series - still waiting on the other campaigns to respond to my email]Earlier this week, I had the good fortune to chat with Rosemary Crawford, candidate for Judge for the Court of Common Pleas.I suspect that as a student Crawford was always (ALWAYS!) well prepared and I say this because as soon as I sat down, she had a pile of stuff for me to peruse; news clippings, a resume, a few proclamations from Pittsburgh City Council and the State Senate praising her work, the ACBA letter letting her know she was rated "Highly Recommended" by the Judiciary Committee - you know the usual…

  • Mexican Tortellini Salad

    You know how sometimes something is so very obvious that you are annoyed at yourself for not thinking of it before? That's how I feel about this. Tortellini. Avocado. Cheese. Salsa. Cilantro. WHY HAVE I NEVER PUT THEM TOGETHER BEFORE? Seriously. They go together perfectly and quickly made for a dish that was ideal for Mila as her main course and a great side for Alexis. Plus, I liked it. A lot. It takes longer to boil the water for the tortellini than it does to finish all of the other steps. So ridiculously easy. Mexican Tortellini Salad 1 bag frozen tortellini (I used a 1 lb bag.)1 8-oz…

      OK, ladies. Stop everything. Empty your purse. What's in there?   I have my phone, wallet, keys, a pile of receipts and coupons, a few pennies, and lip balm. That's it. You know what's not in there? Diapers, wipes, snacks, extra clothing, and basically everything else you're supposed to carry around when you have a baby. Which, I suppose, wouldn't be a problem if I would carry a diaper bag but NOPE. All the nopes. I'm not entirely sure why it's so hard for me to walk around prepared, but there it is. I'm not. I have two really nice diaper bags. I legit tried to make it a thing to…

    About 13 seconds into Alexis' dance recital rehearsal, I decided it would be easier to get a cat to sit quietly in an auditorium than it was to get Mila to sit there. She was a wiggly, giggly, whiny, LOOK AT THE SHINY mess all through the hour it took for Alexis to practice her performances. So, obviously, we took Mila to the actual recital. It was such a good idea! Three hours! Of sitting! Quietly! Easy! Ahem. The truth of the matter is that the husband would rather be stabbed in the face with chopsticks than sit through a dance recital. He requested Mila's presence specifically so he would…

  • Kris Letang Should Be Traded

    25 May 2015 | 6:58 am
    What do you guys think about this article? Kind of garbage, IMO. Pittsburgh needs a young, top tier defenseman. Letang's contributions to the team are generally more positive than negative. Sure he makes poor plays, misses coverage, turns the puck over, but the Pens need him to win & help the scoring. http://thehockeywriters.com/kris-let...uld-be-traded/ "The Pittsburgh Penguins’ core of Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Marc-Andre Fleury and Kris Letang have been under close scrutinization after the continual postseason disappointments. There has been speculation by everyone from…

    Interesting article I found on Dan Bylsma.

  • Brash And Bold : We all saw this coming: Mercer gives way to Kang at shortstop

    Pirates manager Clint Hurdle gave Jordy Mercer the weekend off by design, he said Sunday, so Mercer could try to work his way out of his slow offensive start to the season.Mercer is hitting .176 with a .231 on-base percentage and .204 slugging percentage. Jung Ho Kang started for the fourth consecutive game, and the third time in a row at shortstop. “We’re going to continue to revisit the best lineup that we can put out there daily,” Hurdle said. “We also know the dynamic of working with Jung Ho, playing time. We'll just see where it takes us.” Mercer also hit poorly early in 2014.
