This one was passed on to me by a friend and fellow Pittsburgh expatriate. I’d always wondered where the expression “Pittsburgh rare” came from. I guess it’s another one of those ‘Burgh things, like red beer (putting a bit of tomato juice in your beer when you were drinking beer for breakfast after working the night shift at the mill) or boilermakers (shot of whiskey dropped in a class of beer).
This is pretty creepy. Apparently, the National Guard and officials in Webbers Falls, Okla., are doing everything they can to keep the lid on press coverage of the event. They’ve chased reporters out of several public areas, even goings as far as handcuffing one reporter for being in a public area. This kind of stuff really makes me nervous. How far are we from becoming a police state when the press is this restricted?
