Extra Credit Denied

Many thanks to Pittsburgh Mayor, Bill Peduto (@billpeduto  #billpeduto)  for the added traffic to this blog.  A few points of contention which need clarifying:

  • Nothing in my posting entitled “Pittsburgh Fails History”  was historically inaccurate.  In fact, my source was from the University of Pittsburgh’s own website.
  • I never mentioned the Commission you so vehemently defended.
  • I questioned the historical motivations behind removing Stephen Foster’s monument.
  • I considered the removal a mistake; a decision based upon politics, not the historical record. 
  • You attacked the integrity of my blog… a most political tactic.
  • Not one negative comment was left about the post. I declare victory, Mr. Mayor. 

Nice try, but still a mistake.
