The dog wags back!

A sometimes funny, somtimes angry, but mostly progressive, blog on the politics and issues of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and America.

Thursday, May 03, 2007


Boy-Mayor Luke Ravensteal announced his plan for the City's newly found financial windfall. He is going to use the money to honor his Pittsburgh Promise. The proposal, early in the Boy-Mayor's regency was the first policy initiative not stolen from his elected predecessor, Mayor Bob O'Connor was cribbed from an initiative in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

When the promise was made, the plan for funding was vague. N0w that the windfall has been located, the Mayor decided to make good on his promise. Of course with the average college tuition costing more than $12,000, this $80 million should be enough to nearly get the class of 2007 through college. The Mayor's office declined to comment but "promised" to issue a clarification on what they meant by the Pittsburgh Promise as soon as they get some answers from Kalamazoo.
