Asking for a break

Asking for a break - PittsburghLIVE.comPittsburgh is asking the state to forgive a $1.2 million penalty...

The city is now in the role of begging. Forgive this. Forgive that.

To forgive is one thing. To forget is another. We can't forget. We can't beg forever.

The headline, asking for a break is a gross under statement. We are asking for too much. And, we are not even asking with an understanding.

Members of city council are headed to Harrisburgh next week. They go blindly. That was a concern they expressed themselves. They don't have a plan. They don't have a clue. They don't have much to agree upon themselves. They are going leaderless. The mayor is absent. The consultant / lobby leader is a baby sitter.

Going to discover is fine. Going to beg is about all they can do. That's all the creativity they can muster.
