Letters to the editor, 05/31/02: "Feudal and futile
I'm totally bored with all the editorials, letters to the editor and pseudo-political babble concerning the cost of operating our schools. So long as this area continues to live in the Dark Ages and maintains all the various fiefdoms -- with separate school systems, separate police and fire departments, and all its various political positions -- our county will never achieve 'megalopolis status.' It will remain the 'one-horse town' image it reflects. When I lived in the Far East 50 years ago, if I had a dollar for every time I was asked about the magnificent city called Pittsburgh, I'd be a millionaire. Pity, no more.
