I am back ( and I know some of you wish I had died)

I am finally back. I had an awful time. I had an infection in my toe and then I ended up in the hospital. I had to spend the Christmas Holidays in a hospital bed but atleast I didn't have to spend time around my jaggoff family.

It has been such a great year. I started this great Blog and made so many new great friends. Around the city it has been great. The Mayor won twice. The first time the Pedutohead just gave up and us real Pittsburghers won. The next time back in November, The Mayor easily beat back the Pittsburgh-haters when he defeated the ReSantis.

The Mayor just keeps on winning all the political battles. He got the UPMC Promise thing going. It has been a great year to be a supportor of The Mayor. He just keeps winning and winning. For all those Mayor-haters, it must be like being a Pirates fan - always hoping for a win and always losing!!!!

I've wanted to do a top ten list or a best of for the whole year but I'm sure you can find those all over the Bloghersphere. Just remember when you read them and they are negative of The Mayor just turn it around and make it postive of The Mayor and you will find the truth.

It is going to be a great year. Pittsburgh is going to be the same great Pittsburgh it has always been. I wish all of you - including the jaggoff Pittsburgh haters - a great new year.

Christmas of Pittsburgh

Hello from the always full of joy Paris...

[Here the first post from Andre, who is my friend who lost his job due to us watching the Steelers at his Store where he worked. To raise his spirits since I have made him a fan of Pittsburgh is that we shall write a Guide to Pittsburgh. This is his first attempt. I have helped with the English and enabled it to be read by you. We hope you enjoy our project!]

Celebration of The Christmas in Pittsburgh

The focus of the The Christmas celebration in Pittsburgh is a dead tree that is placed in the home for the duration of the Steelers season. It is decorated with popcorn that has been lanced on string. Then the tree is draped with aluminum foil strips called "tinsel". Every home in Pittsburgh has a creche that contains the traditional baby Christ with his Mother and Father plus a sampling of local people held in high regard such as Mr. Luke Ravenstahl or Mr. Ben Roethlesburgher. The only animal allowed in the barnyard is a donkey which represents the strong loyalties to the Democratic Party wihich is the ruling political party in the Pittsburgh area.
The children are scolded all year to be good or the Santaman (similar to Pere Noel) will leave scrape steel or iron shavings in a foot sock that each child hangs from the place of fire in the living room. The Santaman descends the chimney to gain entrance to the household and will leave presents under the dead tree. He travels with a group of deer who can fly. People do not find this strange.
On Christmas day, there is a fest of sausage in the style of sausage in Poland. Also, most people eat onion mayonaise which is dipped in to with fried chips of potato. For most of the day, most people including children drink "7 and 7" which is a drink of Canadian Whiskey and a soft drink named 7 UP. In some parts of the Pittsburgh, there is a tradition of drinking the 7 and 7s until the tounge is free for all family members to vent all the wrong doings of the others that have transgressed through the previous year. The next morning most do not remember what happened but they feel cleansed to start a new year of transgressions.
Another center of the celebration is the television which must not be turned off for the whole day. It must be tuned to college football even if no one cares about the game or is watching it.

Traditional Recipe: Pierogi
1) fry onion in butter
2) open a box of Piergoi and add to butter onion
3) stir until golden brown
4) serve on plate

I AM SO MAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I havent been able to get to my computer fer so long because my big toe is infected and I have so much to say. I am sooooooo mad.

1st, I had to crawl upstairs to get to my computer and I forgot my notebook that I have been keeping of all the things I've wanted to say. I am so mad!!!!

2nd, I am going to miss The Mayor's big party tonight. I was hoping to go to it even though I never recieved a personal email inviting me. I was looking so forward to it, but now I'm going to be stuck at home. Good luck Mr. Mayor!

3rd, so the dumpy city paper named some Pittgirl the Best Blog in Pittsburgh. I've been using "the BEST blog in Pittsburgh" for my blog for a long time now and it is really low for them to try to steel my idea. Im insulted, but I don't put much faith in their choices. It is like my old Hungarian Grandfather use to say, "Do you want to be compliemented by a backend of a horse?"

4th, I am so mad about everyone being so hard on UPMC. They are giving a big gift and people like the Pedutohead are like ungreatful kids. I sort of agree with Mr. Len Bodack that UPMC should just give all the money to the catholic school kids. They are the ones who have paid all the taxes but haven't used the schools. They should be given a big present.

5th, I am soooo mad that the table games have started in West Virgina and I wasn't there. I love the opening of new casino things, but I have missed that.

6th, My big toe is awful and I hate it and I wish it would just go away. The pain pills are good and I can see how these kids get hooked on them. I've stopped using them and have gone back to my tried and true Pittsburgh pain relief of IC Light. It is better for me and for all of Pittsburgh.

7th, I am so mad. Just leave The Mayor alone.

I am craweling back down stairs now.

Wish Strawberry Way A Better Health and Our Grand Adventure

From Paris....

I recieved a e-mail from the Daughter of the Daughter of Strawberry Way...

My grandma wanted me to tell you that she had to get a hangnail fixed on her big tow and it is infected. She cant get up the stairs to the computer so she is sleeping on the couch. Shes all worried about her "fans" on her blog worried about where shes at. Can you tell them that she is fine except for her jaggoff big tow. She is writing a bunch of stuff in a notebook but I told her there is noway I'm going to type all that stuff up. I told her that I'd let you know what is going on.

I am unable to figure the meaning of big tow but I feel sorry and am sending grand wishes of health. I pray she does not fall pray to The UPMC.

On a note that is different. I was unable to watch the Steelers this past weekend and I fear that I will be unable to watch the next game. I fear they will loose with out my watching. While I am joyful that I have yet to see The Steelers loose I am saddened with their current performances. [ Mr. Bram, with my current busyness I must let the computer robots update my Steelers Nation Blog. I hope this does not disappoint you?]
In a sad event, my friend Andre who works at department store where we have watched games has had his job taken away due to our television watching. His spirits are in deep vast toilet of life. He has moved into my small apartment. To raise his spirits, I have put him on a grand project that I have been dreaming. We are writing a Guide to our adoptable City of Pittsburgh. This is a large feat in the vain of the large tomes of the Great Greek Homer. The english of Andre is very poor so I must work very hard myself. Wish us well on our adventure.

All Should Hail The UPMC For You're Own Health

From Paris:

I try to be current with the goings of my adoptable city of Pittsburgh. Being on the other side of the world and looking in on your little circus world can sometimes give me a greater view than what you see. As I have always said, the outsider's voice is often sweeter! So with my outsider voice I ask, "Why are so many showing their anger at TheUPMC?"

Here is a company that is saving lives and is growing and growing. From my projections, in 3 yearsThe UPMC will soon be the only health care provider in the United States.

Why be so full of hate at them and to publicly show that hate? Don't you know that they keep records? Do you think that your petite letter to the editor saying you hate The UPMC does not go in your health folder? As you lay dieing in one of The UPMC health centers, your last view in life will be a doctor looking at your health folder and shaking his head while reading your little editorial while he holds your life saving medicine and slowly turns and puts it back in the cabinet?

Don't you see why you should be nice to The UPMC which will someday have control over your life and death? Now do you see why The Mayor Ravenstahl has done what he has done. He has sealed his own fate that he will receive the grandest of care! With the Pittsburgh Promise Tax Agreement With The UPMC, how do we not know that the mayor has not made a deal that all Pittsburgh Residents when they are on the butchers table will too receive the grandest of care? Maybe the Promise in the Pittsburgh Promise is something more?

Be nice now to The Grand UPMC or you may regret it later!

Some day, as you lay dieing in your health center bed, you will be hitting the button that rings a nurse and no nurse will be running to your aid. You will lay their as your final breath leaves you and you may mutter, "Pierre was right. All Hail The UPMC!" But it will be too late.

Say it now so later you may die correctly. I have warned you. Since The UPMC is a Nonprofit, you should be able to pay alms to make up for your past mistakes.

Your Beloved Kennywood Will Not Become Tacowood

From Paris which is very close to Spain

I have been learning about a previously unknown to me part of my adoptable city of Pittsburgh. It is your lovely park of amusement - Kennywood!!!

I am learning that people with fond memories are upset that the Spanish are buying it. It seems that people's hate of Mexico is getting confused with their hate of Spain. Since I live in Paris and have often traveled to Spain, I wish to share my grand thoughts.

First, the Spanish do not eat tacos (while they do have something similar to a taco it is not named a taco). Tacos are not Spanish but Mexican. If you are worried about what kind of food your Kennywood will change to let me set your stereotype correct and now worry that they will be serving Tapas or Paella.

Tapas are just little servings of food. So from what I have learned about Kennywood food, you may expect little funnel cakes or petite funnel cakes and the beloved Potato Patch dish will be about 5 pommes frites arranged gracefully on a plate with a dripping of sauce of cheese.

As for Paella, it is just rice mixed with any garbage you may find in your kitchen so expect rice mixed with cotten candy as your new treat.

As for the Kennywood become more Spanish, expect it to open not at a set time, but whenever. And expect everything to stop for most of the afternoon, but expect it to stay open until 4 in the morning. Dinner will not be served until midnight.

You may expect higher security when getting on the rides. Ever since the Madrid train bombing, people have been on high alert. You will have to show up at least 2 hours before your roller coaster departs so everyone will be checked and run through metal and bomb detectors. Likely men with military rifles will stand guard at each ride but you are likely use to big guns every where with it being America "n'at" ( that is my first posting using my new language of Pittsburghese. Have I used it correctly?)

A small area will likely be claimed by the Basques. It will likely be near where the trash is kept. Trouble will likely be often in this little funny part of your beloved park. You will ask yourself, "why do people feel so full of passion for this little trash place?"

I do not expect your park to change much and you will still have fun which is what you want, right. And you will still eat a lot of food, but it will be in many servings.

I do feel gladness in thinking that the United States gave Europe EuroDisney, so may we now export back to you a similar gift. Since it is from Europe, it will be full of class even if it is from Spain.

Tuesday, December 11, 2007


I read this morning that people continue to harrass the kind Mr. Bardin who just wants to open his business. I totally agree with him that how can these angry people who are so full of hate be complaining about a design that they HAVEN"T EVEN SEEN!!!

Why do these people like the Riverlife task force want to deny everyone their property tax relief? Want to know why? Because they only care about the rivers and their pretty views!!! How come the place where the CaSINo is going to be built has been an ugly parking lot forever but all of a sudden these people want that area to look pretty. I never heard them calling to make the parking lot pretty. Clearly, they hate Pittsburgh.

I could care less if the caSINo is a giant pink cube. Most people are going to be inside anyway.

While we all know now that the CaSINo will be changed to a whore house once it opens and the state passes some laws to legalize state run whore house, we all know that a giant garage in needed to handle the crowds, plus we don't want the dads leaving their kids in their cars parked on Northside streets left to be shot up on those mean streets. Better to have them left in a parking garage. So now do you understand why the garage has to be so big!!!!

So just let Mr. Barden build his building the way he wants and give me my PROPERTY TAX RELIEF!!!! Is the only way I'm going to get property tax relief is to die? Everyday I look at the obituary page and think, "at last, this person has property tax relief!!!!"

My Supreme Steeler Nation Update

Hello from Paris where we are hosting Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi for 5 days!

As a young adult, I would revel in reruns of the television show The Brady Bunch. I would lay on the crowded floor of my mother apartment and dream of living in such a nice house as the Brady's. Last night, I could only watch the first half of the game of The Steelers battling the Patriots before Andre's department store in the suburbs closed. I was very nervous until I came into work today to see the score. My heart dropped.
While I have not seen personally the Mighty Steelers lose a game [my record is 1000% wins!!!], my heart drop for our loss.
But back to the Brady Bunch. I kept looking at Tom Brady the quarterback for the Patriots and thinking that I do not remember him from any of the shows. There was Greg, Peter and Bobby. At some point there was a little guy Oliver that got adopted. Did Tom Brady come later in shows that I might not have seen or that have not made it to Paris yet?

I had a discussion with Andre my fellow parisian who I have converted to Steeler Nation Pittsburgheritarian. We were talking about how much America was damaged by the 9-11 attacks and it is clear that even 6 years later people do not want to see a football team named "The Patriots" to lose. It is a shame that all these football teams are racing to lose to the Patriots just to heal the nation. I guess if it make you Americans feel better to have them undefeated and then you can all get beyond the whole 9-11 thing, that is ok. Once you United States are healed the whole world will be a better place.
As for the Miami Dolphins losing every game, that clearly is a statement about the state of Dolphins in the world and how they are being trapped in nets and killed by the Japanese! By the way, I watched the Steelers beat the Dolphins in a crazy little Dolphins Fan bar in a basement with about 9 people who worship a man named Jimmy Buffet. It was like a cult with crazy shirts drinking awful drinks and some were smoking the pot. All of them did not watch the game but instead dance and then ended throwing up their drinks on the floor and falling asleep on one another. That was my strangest experience yet while following the American Football.

Young Inquiring Minds

Several of us who write for this blog received an email from a young Pitt student, asking us lots of questions. I will keep his identity a secret, but I thought it best to answer his questions on this blog. I am always impressed by the inquisitiveness of young minds. Following is what the student wrote in italics. My comments and answers are in regular type.

I am a student at the University of Pittsburgh that happens to be working on a case study involving Luke and the Ethics Hearing Board. The course is Board Governance and we are studying different aspects of board (especially those that are not for profit). You seem very opinionated and I am requesting your thoughts on the Pittsburgh Ethics Hearing Board to use in the analysis. I thought instead of using the different newspaper articles and simply highlighting what everyone already knows, I would turn to bloggers to get the "real deal" and see what actual Pittsburghers think about the Ethics Board, Luke, and their actions especially during the investigation period. Please forward this message to your fellow bloggers if you think they would be willing to share some insight as well. I am talking with a lot of Luke haters (bloggers) so your support for Luke will help to balance the argument.

Wow, I really like being called "very opinionated!" Thanks! of course, my opinions are not really mere opinions, they are the truth. I have had years of worldly experience upon which to base my thinking and writing. First, I am slightly confused. You are "studying different aspects of board?" Board what? Also, I am worried that you are talking to Luke Haters. Be very careful. They will try to poison your mind with their cynicsm, parody and satire. They are mostly evil. Normally, I do not dialogue with those who talk to Luke Haters, but, since you are young and earnest, I will make an exception in your case.

1) Was the City of Pittsburgh Ethics Hearing Board board structure and composition helpful or hurtful to the organization? Did board members have conflicts of interest?

Question number 1 is really two questions, and that's kind of annoying. Shouldn't these be questions numbers 1 AND 2? Well, I'll answer them in order. What organization? Of course they had conflicts of interest. Duh.

2) Was the City of Pittsburgh Ethics Hearing Board board a "good board?"

How do you define "good?" What makes a board good or bad? Can a board even be good or bad? Well, I would say they were bad if they went after Mayor Luke for some silly thing like driving the homerland security vehicle or accepting tickets to golf with Tiger Woods. The mayor is supposed to do these things--those are his job--as we have extensively written previously on this blog. Nobody bothered about Mayor Murphy golfing with Arnold Palmer, did they?

3) In your estimation, did the City of Pittsburgh Ethics Hearing Board reach a fair decision on clearing Mayor Luke Ravenstahl on any wrong-doing? Were there any clear signs of negligence or incompetence on the part of the board or any of its members?

Again with the two in one question! Of course it was a fair decision. What was unfair was to waste the Mayor's time by subjecting him to a review of ethics. The Mayor is above ethics, that is why he is the Mayor. I don't think this is rocket science. What are they teaching you at Pitt anyway? And, yes, of course they were incompetent. It was incompetent to waste time thinking about the Mayor's case when he was clearly not guilty of ethical infractions.

4) Did the board operate independently or did it do the bidding of Mayor Luke Ravenstahl (recall that two members of the board are nominated by the major)?

Mayor Luke is not the puppet master of the board. Of course they acted independently. How many people are on this board? So what if two are nominated by Luke? Does two constitute a majority? Use some common sense here. If they were "doing the bidding of Mayor Ravenstahl," do you think he would have bid them to investigate him?

5) In your research, did you see any board activities that seemed questionable?

Umm, from the get go, harrassing our beloved Mayor by questioning his ethics was just plain unethical. I think they need to have THEIR ethics looked at! Questionable? You bet! Look, he's young. Cut the guy a break. Of course he might make some ethical slip ups. I say "might make", which does not mean he DID make any. We know he did not really make any ethical errors. I just mean that we have to be understanding of his youth and not be constantly looking for ways to question him and find fault. This intereferes with his ability to be mayor, and is something that only cynical mean people do.

6) What did the board do right? What did the board do wrong?

I'm not going to answer this becuase again it is two questions and besides they are really the same as question #5. Oh wait a second, they probably should have looked into that DeSantis guy's ethics too. Failure to do that is something they did wrong. I think his ethics should have been investigated before he had even gotten on the ballot. What if he was unethical, got elected (fat chance, but bear with me, this is hypothetical) and then we found out later that he was, in fact, unethical? Then where would we be? What would we do? Nobody knows anything about DeSantis's ethics, yet people voted for him!

7) Should the City of Pittsburgh Ethics Hearing Board change their policies and/or procedures as a result of this set of hearings against Mayor Luke Ravenstahl?

This is getting a bit repetitious. But, yes, they should. They should not be allowed to waste taxpayer dollars, their time, and our Mayor's time by investigating the Mayor unless they are 100% sure that the Mayor has done something wrong.

8) What do you think motivated board members to join the Pittsburgh Ethics Hearing Board?

Cynicsm and hatred. They probably have it in for Mayor Luke. I think they are probably just mean people too.

9) What agenda if any do you think each has as a board member?

You did not have a question #9, this was part of #8. But I decided to renumber them, since you apparently cannot count. Again, what are they teaching you there at Pitt? Apparently they are NOT teaching you how to count. Board Member agendas are too numerous to list here. Maybe my colleagues Pierre and Strawberry Way will care to weigh in with an itemized list of agendas held by each board member. But, just for an example, the board includes a nun, a reverend and a rabbi! Do you think they might have some evangelical agendas related to their own particular religions? I do!

Okay, well, I hope this helps you with your project. Good luck in your studies. I think you should definitely earn an A+ for this work. Because, it was a brilliant idea to turn to bloggers for your research! As you know, we bloggers are the best source of authoritative unbiased facts and information available today.

Pittsburgh Promise Gets $100,000,000.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was getting so sick and tired of whenever anyone talked about The Mayor's Pittsburgh Promise Program, that thing to give the poor kids in the public schools free tuition to the community college of their choice, they would always say, "Only one person has given to it and it is the teachers union." I was getting so sick of hearing that I was about to give like $10 that I usually give to the Dapper Dan Toys for Poor Kids just to shut those people up. Then they would have to say "two people have given money"

Well, Lordy Lordy, look what happened! UPMC is giving close to 1/10 of a billion dollars to send the poor kids to community college - given there might be one or two kids who will get to go to a real college like Robert Morris or something.

What a slam dunk hat trick for The Mayor Mr. Luke Ravenstahl and for UPMC!!! Now we know why it was so important for The Mayor to attend that golf tournament and skip the room full of screaming women this past summer. I would not be suprised if the Penguins put up a 1/10 of a billion dollars too. Plus Joe Montana (that was whoelse he was golfing with right?) might also give something. It just shows that sometimes we don't know why The Mayor does what The Mayor does. It is going to come out at some point that some terrorists were going to blow up the Star Lake Ampatheater during that Kenny Cheseney concert and that The Mayor really needed to be there with the Hometown Security vehicle and saved thousands of lives plus that of a country superstar. How do we know that The Mayor is not leading a life just like that Jack guy in that 24 tv show?

Now nobody can make fun of the Pittsburgh Promise Program (eventhough The Mayor Hating Monkeys will find some way to do it!). Also, now people can't pick on UPMC for making a profit while it is a non-profit because now they are giving some of it away. Now everyone shut up about them not paying taxes!

I can't wait to hear what other surprises The Mayor has been working on.

Van Halen To Embrace Pittsburgh With A Night of Love

From Paris:

You may remember how upset I was when it was announced that Van Halen would not be visiting the beloved Pittsburgh on their recent tour. Maybe my Blog post will help you remember ....

After that, I put the whip to the ass of the horse. I did set my massive Van Halen scrapbook out for rubbish. I even wrote the following email to Mr. Mayor Ravenstahl, Mr. Pat Ford and Mr. Yaronne.

I am a writer for a blog ( that greatly favors the
mayor and I was very saddened to learn in the papers that Van Halen will be
missing the City of Pittsburgh on thier most recent tour.

Is there anything that you can do about this?

I believe you should make a statement that if Van Halen does not want Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh does not want Van Halen!!! We don't even want the Van Halen with Sammy Hager. Can you issue an official decree?

As you might be able to see, I am full of anger at them disrepecting your city.

Thank You for Your Time and Service!
Paris, France

and I did recieve the following from Mr. Yaronne...
Thanks for your email, Pierre. An official decree may not be in order, but this will certainly take “Jump” out of the running for Pittsburgh’s official theme song. Is this the David Lee Roth influence at play? He has been disruptive before and I sincerely hope this is not evidence of his persistent troublemaking, certain to doom the tour and break up the band.

Au Revoir,


Then today I saw the news that Van Halen WILL BE VISITING PITTSBURGH!

I would like to think that Mr. Yaronne pulled some strings and made the concert a certainty. I would also hope that also my outrage helped to make Van Halen change their decision. Unfortuniately, I will be unable to attend the concert for I have not saved up enough for my visit to my adoptable city. If Van Halen or The City of Pittsburgh, wishes to pay for my travel, I might be able to attend. ( I would hope they would also pay for my taxi to and from the airport and cover my hotel fees plus some money so I may "party" like a rock god!)

I do regret loses my Van Halen massive scrapbook and for melting my albums into a gooey mass on the sidewalk of my apartment building but I luckily still have all their albums on compact disks.

Thank you Mr Yaronne for pulling a muscle for the city of Pittsburgh.

My Opus on The Allegheny Conference on Community Development and its Affiliates

Hello from the city with angry teenagers rioting in the streets - Paris!

The Allegheny Conference on Community Development and its Affiliates is made of the cream of the Pittsburgh people. These people have risen to the top of the mountain and are given a view of the city that few others can comprehend. Together they are like the neutron bomb of change where as all the other little people of Pittsburgh are individually like the little caps that children put in their toy cap guns. Pittsburgh is very lucky to have such powerful men of vision who are willing to work together for the good of all. It reminds me of the Legion of Super Heros.

Since ancient times, all civilisations have needed fathers of vision to help the children citizens. Left alone, the children citizens would end up playing in mud and not eating well and basically soiling their pants. But thanks to the fathers of vision, the children can be let by their hand to a better place safely. That is what I see the The Allegheny Conference on Community Development and its Affiliates [TACOCDAIA] doing for the people of Pittsburgh.

A good example is how when TACOCDAIA was first conceived, they cleaned all the smoke from the city. If not for these Fathers of Vision coming together, the people of Pittsburgh would have kept putting smoke out of the steel mills and would have sat their coughing and wiping soot from their eyes. But thanks to TACOCDAIA, people can now come to Pittsburgh thinking it will be smokey and full of gloom, but will be surprised when it does not meet their expectation but is better. What better way to leave an impression and memory but with a surprise! So much I read people's reaction to visiting Pittsburgh as "I thought it would be ugly but it is beautiful!" It is like meeting a strange ugly girl on the Metro and convincing her to come to your apartment and then when you take off her glasses, let her hair down and take away her clothes, she then looks like Lindsey Lohan!!! You can thank TACOCDAIA for this transformation!

TACOCDAIA is responsible for Renaissance 1 and 2. As a European, I take exception to this because we are responsible for the real Renaissance 1. So one of the first things when I am invited to talk to the Fathers of Vision of TACOCDAIA, I will ask them to renumber their Renaissances. Therefore, they are responsible for Renaissances 2 and 3.

TACOCDAIA is responsible for almost everything in Pittsburgh (except for the bad stuff). They have built Downtown. They have given Culture to Downtown with its Culturial District. They are redecorating The Point State Park. You should think of TACOCDAIA as the interior designers of Pittsburgh for they are striving to make the city grand.

Every year TACOCDAIA gathers for their Annual Meeting to share their Visions with not the lowly people but the people just below the cream of the top. It has been suggested that I may someday speak at this grand meeting. I think that would be a great idea. I think I could share greatly because I to am full of Vision (that is why I contribute to this website to share my humble insight!).

In conclusion, Pittsburgh is very fortunate to have such a group as TACOCDAIA. These are very powerful men who could use their powers to crush the little people, but instead they have turned to use their powers for good. In the coming year, TACOCDAIA is celebrating the birthday of 250 for the city of Pittsburgh. I wish to suggest that the people of Pittsburgh turn the table and instead of celebrating the birthday, they should celebrate TACOCDAIA!!! There could be parades where all the members of TACOCDAIA walk through the canyons of their creation - Downtown - and the people of the city could share their thanks for TACOCDAIA's greatness. Dear, Little People of Pittsburgh? Could we make this idea a reality?

[I wish to thank Mr. Bram for insighting me to the existence of TACOCDAIA. I am sorry for my delay in producing this position paper but I wanted it to be extraordinary to reflect the glory of the topic.]

Is Dan Onorato Our Barry Bonds?

I saw a picture of Dan Onorato in the paper (yeah, that Republican paper that starts with a P and ends with Gazette) and I noticed that our County Executive looks a lot different than the Little Danny who use to be on City Council. It got me thinking, Is he using performance enhancing drugs?

Look at these two pictures...


after: Doesn't he look like he has Barry Bond's neck? If he is using performance enhancing drugs, I think that sets a bad president. He is a role model and is looked up to by the kids! Plus, I would hate to see such a handsome young man get lured into thinking that he needs that junk just to keep up with everyone else.

I am kind of mad that I am the first blog to endorse him for governor and NO ONE from his office has emailed me to accept the endorsement!!! If I find out that he has been taking Human Growth Steroids or Smart Drugs or Whatever, I am taking back my endorsement.

Don't you think that drug testing should be done on all people who are elected to such important places? We do it on sports people and what they do doesn't even effect my life except for the Steelers.

To My Fans and Mr. Bram....

I wish you not to worry. I am working on a very detailed analysis of the Allegheny Conference on Economic Development and its partners. It shall be the greatest of reads. I just wanted to tell you in case you thought I was dead, but NO! I am writing a master piece.

Plus, I shall be staying awake very late in order to watch the Steelers Football tomorrow morning. I have found a establishment that caters to fans of the Miami Dolphins who I assume have as great of a following as the Steelers. I must say Steelers Nation sounds much greater than Dolphin Nation.

Dan Onorato Is My Hero!!!!

Earlier this week Dan Onorato had County Council change the county real estate website so people can't search by the property owners name. I say BRAVO Mr. Onorato for making the county safer for everyone.

We all know that there are crazy people out there and especially in Pittsburgh there are tons of nuts that have access to computers. Just think that some of those nuts could go to a website and findout where somebody lives and actually see a picture of their house let alone know how much they paid for it and see how much taxes they pay. That is just wrong.

Mr. Onorato has the write idea. It is all public information, but no where do it say you have to make it easy for people. What a great idea to take all the information off the internets and keep it all downtown. We all know that nobody goes downtown so all that information is safe down there and no nuts are going to see it.

In the end we are all safer. I think that all leaders should follow Mr. Onorato's lead and take all important information off the internets and put it downtown. They can do stuff like take all the phone numbers for all the city and county offices off the internets so that all those nuts can't make crazy phone calls downtown and bother people. Lots of money would be saved that way from employee's not having to answer stupid questions. If somebody has a real important question, it seems reasonable that they could go downtown and ask the question in person.

Mr. Onorato has shown some true leadership and I know it is really early to do this but just on his recent actions...

This Blog ENDORSES Mr. Dan Onorato for Governer.

Then he could move all the information with him to Harrisburg and really make all of Pennsylvania safer. Then only the most determined nuts would have to go to Harrisburg to get the information in person. We know that only real nuts travel to Harrisburg for any reason.

My Response for My Friend Bram R

Hello from the Center of the World Paris!

I was going to write a post about how I missed the Steelers game against the Jet Airplanes due to the Train Stike here in France. I should have known they would loose due to my absence, but I spent my time putting together a great new website to be resourceful for anyone who loves Pittsburgh and is a citizen of Steelers Nation...

[Do not worry, this website will not detract for my precense here on ILUVLUKE]

I noticed a question directed toward me from My Friend Bram R asking "I'm interested to hear Pierre's take on the ACCD." While I am not familar with ACCD, I am egger to please and I am willing to develop and share my opinion. Here are my attempts. Please, Mr. Bram, let me know if I have answered your request?

The Association for Christian Character Development [ACCD] ( - If the religion is firering your soul, this may be useful. The website needs better design. The Discovery Seminar looks interesting dealing with such things as "breaking free from past hauntings/wounds" or "living as powerfully as you know is possible". Mr. Bram, be careful you may become a Godly superhero if you plan on attending.

American Coalition of Citizens with Disabilities [ACCD]( - This seems like a worthwhile organization. I too believe the disabled need help because disabled means they are unable to do things or unable to do them correctly. That is where we who are able should help them. I do not understand how this group helps for it seems they just have meetings.

Alamo Community Colleges [ACCD] ( - Mr. Bram, are you looking to go to school? This college seems far from Pittsburgh but if you are like other young people and looking to leave Pittsburgh, this might be a good choice for you. Follow your dreams!

The Alliance For Contraception in Cats and Dogs [ACCD] ( - I am all for non-surgically sterilizing dogs and cats. It seems they wish for cats and dogs to use the condom. I would not trust them to apply them correctly, but this group seems to believe that is possible. They do have a cute video here.

I hope Mr. Bram, I have answered your questions and you are now satisfied. If not, please let me know if I have missed the mark and I will try again for I am abled not disabled.

Light Up Night!!!

Last night, I went with my jaggoff family downtown for Light Up Night. It is always so special. No body wanted to go because they thought it was too cold, but I was able to drag my grandson Little Frankie and my son Tony. The three of us went down in Tony's tow truck. I was sure parking would be a problem but Tony knows all the parking lot people so we were able to find a spot and park for FREE!

Light up night brings back so many memories of when I was a child and my dad would take me and my sisters to go downtown to look at the Horne's Christmas tree all lit up. We'd ride the trolly down and look at the tree and then we'd tag around with my dad as he went to different bars and talked to his friends. Me and my sisters would play under dirty pool tables among old peanut shells and we'd eat hard boiled eggs while we waited for my dad. I realized later that it was just a way to get us kids out of the house when my mother was being a nag, but it still brings back so many good memories. And then we'd get dad on the trolly back home and he'd be singing Christmas carols and barely able to stand up. God bless his soul.

So I was hoping to create nice memories for my Little Frankie. We got to see The Mayor light up the Christmas tree. That was great to see him in person. He looks more handsome in real life than in the pictures if you can believe that. He reminds me George Clooney crossed with Brad Pitt with a little Matt Damon in him. We are so lucky to have such a handsome Mayor!
Little Frankie got to email Santa Claus his wish list and then later we got to see Santa. We had some coco and watched some fireworks. Little Frankie wanted to get his face painted like Hines Ward because he was wearing his Hines Ward jersey so the little girl face painting just smeared his face with some brown makeup and that made him happy. We went and watched some people do some dancing on the ice rink. That was nice.

My only complaint for the night was the Highmark "Unity Tree". It is a CHRISTMAS tree!!!!! Can't we just put Christ back in CHRISTmas and call it a CHRISTMAS TREE!? Thank God, they got rid of Sparkle Season!!!!

In conclusion, I want to say that Light Up Night is great. It is like the only night of the year where it is safe to go downtown at night so it is really nice to go down and see it so full of people. It is just like the old days when it was busy down there all the time. I could tell that most of the people are from the suburbs and it would be nice if only people in the city would be allowed to enjoy it but it is still a nice event. So now I am all in the Christmas spirit.

There seems to be a lot of pain in Pittsburgh after the election among those people who are Pittsburgh-haters. I have thought really hard about what to do about those 35% of the people who hate the town that they live in and I have determined that this should be a time for healing and bringing Pittsburgh back together.

I don't want to be mean and rub in the fact that their candidate lost, but it is time for us to move past the past election and move forward and come together. So if you are full of hate and anger after the election, I have put together some resources for you to help you come out of the election a better person. I have found somethings that you type of people might find useful in growing up and stop being crybabys.

If you voted for ReSantis, you would likely be into Hug Therapy. Here is a book you can read.

You might want to organize a big group hug for all the ReSantis supports here in Pittsburgh. Maybe you could follow this website as a guide. It looks like something you would be into.

You might also be into getting you aura cleansed.

Or you might want to get something else cleaned.

So I recommend you stay away from your pot pipes and your fancy wines and whisky to drown your sorrow and heal yourselfs so we can make Pittsburgh a better place. There are a hole bunch of us already making Pittsburgh better so why do join us and I promise I'll try not to make fun of you.

My Steeler Nation Update

Grand Morning from glorious glowing Paris

After a exciting week last week with the triumph of the Great Mayor Luke, I forgot to update you on my citizenship in the Steelers Nation!

I was able to watch the Ravens lose to the Mighty Steelers. You might ask how I stayed awake last week to watch it. Well, my friend Andre who I have converted into a fan of the Pittsburgh hooked a digital recorder of video to the television at his job and we watched it the next day in the department store. Even though we knew the Steelers would triumph, it was still exciting to see the football fly so gracefully into the touchdown zone so many times!!!

This past Sunday when the Steelers battled the Browns, again Andre was working so I ventured to the Department Store. We have become a fixture in front of the Satellite television. Andre has set up a sofa and hooked up a loud stereo sound system so we can enjoy to the maximum. We must be careful so Andre's boss does not get angry at us. It is good that he is a Christian and takes Sundays off so he does not witness our merrymaking. Now we must make sure that Andre's co-workers do not become jealous of Andre having so much fun at work. I am laboring to convert them to the love of Pittsburgh.

What fun watching the Browns lose. And the excitement of Big Ben lumber his large frame into the touchdown zone!! What animal is the Browns? I believe it is the worst name in the National Football Legion.

Again my record is 1000% in watching the Steelers triumph!!! May I never see the Steelers lose!

More Analysis

I agree with ILuvLuke's insightful post-election analysis completely. Luke won and he is still Pittsburgh's Mayor. The Mark DeSantis yuppies have been put in their place. (Which, unfortunately, appears to be Shadyside, Pt. Breeze and Sq. Hill. I am starting to wonder if these places are really part of Pittsburgh, even though I live in Sq. Hill.)

I wanted to add a little analysis of my own. Something like only 30 or 40 percent of registered voters turned out on election day. Some people say this a small percentage, less than half. And, therefore, not everyone supports Luke. I say they are wrong. Just because someone does not vote does not mean they don't support the Mayor! Besides, I am sure these people had good reason not to vote. It was very windy on election day, and some of them had probably just had their hair done. Also, it was the day after a Steelers Monday night football game. Probably lots and lots of people were nursing IC Light Hangovers. How could they vote? I do not know why they couldn't just move election day to Wednesday! Or even Saturday when not as many people have to work. Or why not have a whole election week? If the weather is crappy on Tuesday, it might clear up on Thursday and then people can go vote without getting their hair mussed. We can put a man on the moon so why can't we have an election week?

But, the fact that not many people voted means that even more people Support Luke, Pittsburgh's Mayor. Here is how I see it. Most of these people who stayed home did so because they knew Luke would win, and since they were going to vote for him anyway, they really did not need to bother to get out and vote. Luke did not need any more votes, but everyone supports him. I think this is really generous and kind of the democratic party. Many of them stayed home and didn't vote. That way, Luke's margin of victory was not TOO large. I think this was really very, very kind and generous of Democrats and Luke supporters--because it gave Luke enough votes, but not so many as to make ReSantis look really bad. It made ReSantis think he might have had a chance. It was really very kind of democrats to create this illusion for some republican loser who never had a chance. That proves why democrats are the leading party in Pittsburgh and will always be. Democrats have compassion for their Republican opponents. In fact, I think we should start a new term: Compassionate Liberals.

And, like I said above, all those people who did not vote probably do support Mayor Luke. Besides, that is the way it works in a democracy. Once someone wins election to office, then everyone must get behind him and support him because America loves a winner, no matter what.

Anyway, probably next election even more people can stay home, because, as ILuvLuke wrote, Luke is Pittsburgh's Mayor, for life.

Post Election Analysis

I don't do much analysis but here is what I see.

Luke Won.

That means that Pittsburgh Loves Luke and everyone should now get off his case.

Just looking at the map showing where Luke won, it was pretty much everywhere so that means everyone supports him. All those "mistakes" that were getting blown out of proportion just mean that people support him and support his "mistakes". That means they want him to go golfing with Tiger Woods. They want him to have a nice car to take his wife on concerts and date.

It also shows that people like him acting like a 27 year old. When he goes to get elected next time, he is going to be a 29 year old, but I'm sure people wont care if he continued acting like a 27 year old because there isn't that big of a difference between 27 and 29.

Now that The Mayor is still the Mayor he can be Mayor for Life and this great blog can contiue. I'm sure The Mayor has higher callings like maybe taking Dan Onorato's place when Dan become Governor, but I'll still be able to run this blog because I (and all of Pittsburgh) will continue to Luv Luke.

We Won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All my hard work has paid off.

Luke Won so We won!!!!

Plus I did my first live blogging last night. It was very exciting, but I had to go to bed early and I missed all the good speeches. It is just like when I went to bed after the first quarter of the Steelers game. You just know who is the winner.

Thank you God for answering all my prayers. There is good in the world. And Pittsburgh is going to continue becoming greater. Luke is now Mayor for Life. And if you don't like it, move to Squirrel Hill or Shadyside which I think we should annex to Wilkensburg.

Beautiful Machine

Ooops! Silly me. I wrote this post earlier today, after a sleepless night partying for Luke. I thought 75% of Allegheny County voters voted a straight democratic ticket. But now I find out (thanks to Chris Potter of the City Paper) that it is really only 20%. Silly me. Well, I still think it is a great thing to choose a side and stick with it no matter what, I guess it's just that not as many people are doing that as I thought. What is really important is that Luke won and I am proud to be part of the wining side even if lots of people think ReSantis would have been a better Mayor!--Gay4Luke

Today I am happy, proud, and, yes, a little bit turned on to be part of the great and powerful democratic machine which has risen up and rolled through and elected Pittsburgh's Mayor Luke Ravenstahl. Think of this: According to the Allegheny County Board of Elections, in Allegheny County, 75% of the voters voted a straight democratic ticket. They did this just as they have always done, just as their fathers and their fathers' fathers have always done! How could Luke possibly lose in this great tradition of voting for democrats? How could some Republican ever think he might win? It really is a beautiful thing because we know the democratic party is great and true and right. So we do not even have to think, we can just push that button for a straight democratic ticket and be done with it quick and easy. Also, by not having to page through a long ballot making individual choices, we save lots and lots of time in the polling place. Then we can get on with our shopping and other important things. And we can assure that the democrats will alway be elected which is as it should be in this great democracy of Pittsburgh. That's why they call it a DEMocracy--because it is run by democrats. They don't call it REPocracy, do they? It's just such a beautiful thing to pick a side and stick with it no matter what. I am glad I have chosen the democratic side (unlike my evil dead republican father) because today I can say I am a winner. "Mark DeSantis for Mayor" Hah!

We Have All Together Won Greatly

From your twin city Paris....

Congratulation on your supreme triumph great Pittsburgh's Mayor Luke Ravenstahl.

I wish there was a way to send you a group of red roses through email for you would find a large wreath of them from me. Also, I wish I could have delivered to your office a bottle of Pittsburgh's finest Champagne for you to pop the cork and to spray all over your office. Did your staff pour a cooler of sports drink over you? This seems to be the American way to say Victory by making the great victor wet with sports drink. I pour my sports drink on you, great Pittsburgh Mayor!

[May I point out that blogger spell check that I rely very heavy upon takes the name "Ravenstahl" and wishes to change it to "Ravenously"!]

I am so gleeful that you have triumphed because that means the following...

- This blog will continue. While even if Luke would have received defeat, we would still love him. I believe it would have been harder to blog about him if he were unemployed or selling cars.

- I may continue my plans of visiting the city of Pittsburgh and I now may recieve the Great Golden Key to the City when I arrive. I will hopefully be treated in the highest style and may sore at the great levels of the Eagles of Power of the City of Pittsburgh.

So with that, I leave you with this great saying in France, "Mange ton poisson à présent qu'il est frais, marie ta fille à présent qu'elle est jeune." It translates "Eat your fish while it is fresh, marry your daughter while she is young."

I'm going to bed...

I have to call it a night. The IC Lights are catching up with me. I'm hearing figures like 63% for The Mayor with half the places in so I am calling the elction.

Luke is the winner!!!!

I'm Live Blogging the Election from My Diningroom

I'm sitting here in my diningroom blogging the election. I'm going to try to update it when ever I hear anything interesting.

So far, i have heard that a crate full of Kleenex boxes have been dropped off at the ReSantis Headquarters at the Fox Chapel Yacht Club.


Today is the big day.

Last night, I got one of those recorded phone calls and it started off with The Mayor reminding me to vote and then on came Judy OConnor Bob OConnor's ex-wife. It was the saddest thing. I couldn't even listen to the whole thing because it was so heartbreaking. She had gone through so much this past year and then to hear her gather the strength to urge me to vote for The Mayor. I was so touched. Then less than a minute later, I got a phone call and it was ReSantis. All my good sad warm feeling went away and there was his droning voice of gloom and doom. I thought how sneaky and dirty of him to be following Judy OConnor's phone calls. Doesn't he have any respect for the DEAD! It almost ruined my eveniung but then I watched the Steelers and felt better.

This morning, I was one of the first ones at my polling place this morning. I walked in proudly with Luke stickers on my jacket. I know all the workers at my polling place because I've been going there my whole life, but this morning they told me that I couldn't have the stickers on in the polling place. Said there can't be campaigne material in the polling place. They said I could cover them up. I couldn't believe it. What jaggoffs. I had like 8 stickers on my jacket so I had to vote with my arms over my chest like I was naked and covering myself. I'm going to complain to the County Election Board. That ruined my voting experience. I wanted to savor the moment when I pushed the electronic button for Luke, but instead I was just soooo angry and embaressed.

On my way out of the polling place, I ran into Helen who was just coming in. You might remember Helen was the old neighbor lady who unbelievably said she still hadn't made up her mind to vote for The Mayor weeks ago. I didn't say anything to her but I gave her my best evil eye and she said to me, "My vote is going to cancel out yours." I guess she was saying that she is not voting for The Mayor. What a PooPoo Head.

If you are a PooPoo Head and still haven't made up your mind, just remember Bob OConnor and vote for The Mayor.

Have you seen this?

Have you scene this site? Republicans for Luke!!!!!

It is awful that THEY are resorting to joke parody sites to tranish the good Mayor. How low can they go?

Words To The Blind People of the City

Hello for Paris - the big sister city of Pittsburgh.

I am so excited about the election tomorrow. My brain is frothing.

The city must be so excited with Mr. Luke on the television in commercials, with signs for him everywhere, his picture posted on every light pole, spontantious parades where workers leave work and parade down streets with chants and songs about the great Mayor. Bars full of his supporters singing songs of his praises into the wee morning? Cars must be decorated with loudspeakers speaking his inspirational words. Have lines formed outside the voting houses already? The residents who are living in the city must have an excitement of a man overdosing on Viagra!?!?

And is the city ready for the aftermath? Will people flock the streets in excitement with news of the victory of Mr. Luke? Will buses be over turned? Will couches and trash cans burn? Will anybody sleep on Tuesday night? Will anyone work on Wednesday? Nothing says a true victory as a victory riot!

As I know from watching the city from a far for so long that there are blind people in the city. They are not so smart and they fail to see the greatness nor the vision of the Great Mayor Ravenstahl. I have learned in my life that there will always be stupid people. In this election we will be able to see how many stupid blind people live in the city by seeing how many people vote for DeSantis. This is a great opportunity to do a great IQ test on the city. After the election, we have to figure what to do rid the city of the stupid blind people. I recommend an educational camp somewhere far away like Butler County.

On the eve of a great day for the great city of Pittsburgh, I urge all you dim blind people to resist your urge to vote for DeSantis and vote for Mr. Ravenstahl and in you excitement victory riot, please burn a couch in my honor!!!

This Happened to ME!

I hope you are sitting down, because this is a terrible tale of SACRILEGE!! Let me start at the beginning. It is late Sunday AM, and I decide to go out for a nice double decaf skim mocha pumpkin latte. Normally I go to Coffee Tree Roasters on Murray in Squirrel Hill, which, as everyone knows was the favorite hangout of our late great democratic Mayor, Bob O'Conner. That Coffee Tree is just around the corner from my house. But, I decided to walk down to the Walnut Street Coffee Tree in Shadyside. It's a bit further, but along the way, I decided to count how many Luke campaign signs I would see versus how many ReSantis signs. In Squirrel Hill, I am happy to say there were more Luke signs! Of course, I was thinking it would be safe to go to Coffee Tree on Walnut because I figured it would be friendly to Bob O'Connor and democrats just like their Squirrel Hill location. Well, as I got closer to Walnut Street I saw more and more DeSantis signs, so I began to get worried. Then when I got to Walnut Street, there were all sorts of people wearing "Mark DeSantis for Mayor" t-shirts underneath their black suit jackets! And handing out ReSantis propaganda! There were also lots of young men in dark suits and cheap ties who looked like G-men or Mafiosos. They had hands full of ReSantis for Mayor propaganda!!! I almost turned around, but after a hard night of partying, I really needed that latte. Plus, I figured it would be safe to go into Coffee Tree since it was practically like Bob O's favorite place.

SO, I walk into Coffee Tree, and what do I see? More ReSantis minions. AND, believe it or not, there was Mark ReSantis himself!!! standing there near the cash register!!

This is the sacrilege part! I could not imagine how he had the nerve to set foot on what was practically Bob O'Connor's sacred democratic turf. Does the man have no respect for Bob's memory? I almost gagged as badly as I do when I read the Post Gagette newspaper!

Anyway, I steeled myself to stand in line and get my latte and vanilla biscotti. It suddenly dawned on me. This was the chance I was waiting for. I could ask ReSantis myself how he possibly thought, that, as a Republican, he should be mayor of Pittsburgh.

As I stood in line with the Shadyside yuppies, ReSantis was mere inches from me. I kept waiting for ReSantis to try to campaign to me, like he was doing to the other yuppies. He ignored me. I tried to get his attention, but everytime I looked at him, he looked away. Then he left the shop with his drones.

Well, I decided to walk up and down Walnut street, which ReSantis was also doing. I passed him THREE more times on the sidewalk, and each time he completely ignored me! The final time, I approached him in front of Cappy's, made eye contact, and he immediately ducked into Cappy's to avoid me.

I am so outraged (again!). How can he expect to get my vote if he is going to ignore me like that? I think it is his job to be nice and ask for my vote. Luke has never ignored me. I think ReSantis probably recognized my picture from all the times he has visited this Blog (statistics show it is true) and so he ignored me. Probably also because I am gay.

Anyway, here are more reasons to vote for Luke:

1. ReSantis ignores people (esp. gay men) in Coffee Shops and on the street.

2. I can now confidently tell you that ReSantis is uglier in person than he is in pictures and on TV. (unlike Luke, who I can tell you is handsomer in person).

3. ReSantis is also way older than Luke and looks even older in person. Because he is young, Luke stands less chance of dying while in office, and we do not need more dead mayors!

4. ReSantis was virtually dancing on the grave of our dear departed Mayor Bob O'Connor by campaigning in a Coffee Tree Roasters, which is sacred O'Connor turf, and we should not vote for republican people who have no respect for our dead democratic Mayors!

5. Even if Luke is a terrible Mayor (he is NOT, by the way!) the winner of this election will only be Mayor for two more years before we have another election. Nothing really bad can happen in two years, as long as we keep democrats in the Mayor's office. But there is no telling what might happen with a republican mayor because nobody can remember ever having one. After two years, we will be able to vote for a new Mayor (maybe even Luke again!), and we need to make sure we can keep a democrat in the Mayor's office to keep the tradition alive. But if we elect ReSantis, there is no telling what might happen and the long standing and rightful tradition of democrats will be broken. Even if Luke does not run again in two years, then we might be able to elect our first gay democratic mayor, unless he drops out of the race again.

6. ReSantis has no experience being Mayor or even in politics at all, but Luke has been Mayor for at least a year now. And even if he made a few mistake, I believe in getting experience on the job, so Luke will just keep getting to be a better democratic Mayor as long as we give him a chance and keep him in office. Being Mayor is not like running a business so ReSantis does not have any experience to be Mayor at all, even though he is a lot older (and looks it).

Well, I have written too much already so I will stop, even though I really have a LOT more to say. I just what you to remember what happened to me today when you go to the polls and no matter what else happens I hope you will vote for Luke to protect our important sacred traditions.


P.S. Prediction: Luke wins this election. Wins again in 2 more years, after continuing to do great job, and wins again and again to become one of Pittsburgh's greatest most beloved Mayors ever. Years from now, they re-name the new Hockey arena "Ravenstahl Rink" in his honor!!!

Parking Chair Update!

As you might have read in my previous post, someone stole my parking chair that I had decorated for the upcoming election with Luke signs. I went around asking all my neighbors if they knew anything about it. Some thought that the garbage man might have took it. I was surprised at how many people were mad at me for putting Luke stickers on there windshields. I didn't take the back off them. I put them under the wipers of the cars up and down my street a couple of nights ago - actually it was tricker treat night with the leftover stickers I was passing out . The next morning it rained and the backs came off the stickers and they stuck to the windshields. I was surprised at how mad people were but I don't know why they thought it was me. Nobody saw me.
Ok so I am the only person on the whole street with a Luke sign in front of my house - in fact it is 5 signs and I have been talking about the election for months but I put the stickers out there in the middle of the night so I don't know why anyone would think it was me! Oh well.

Regarding the parking chair. Nobody saw anything about that so I am still looking. I know I'm going to figure it out. I thought you might like to know.

I Am So Mad Again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You might think that I am mad because I wasn't even mentioned by the poopoo-gazette as a influencial woman blogger. But I am not mad about that. I figure what do you expect from a republican Pittsburgh hating paper? I have been very blessed to be running this website. A year ago, if you would have asked me if I would be running "The Best Blog In Pittsburgh" I would have laughed and then checked my liquor cabinet to see if you had been sneaking. But here I am with a whole group of new "cyber" friends and I'm on a mission running a great blog that is making our city a wonderful place just like our Mayor!

But here is what is making me mad! I had spent all weekend decorating my parking chair with Ravenstahl signs and making it look all pretty. I gave it a Halloween look and made it up really nice. I put some Luke signs on it with some tissue paper ghosts and a cardboard skeleton that I got at the drug store. I taped some pictures of Luke on it along with some leaves. But now it is gone. Someone stole my PARKING CHAIR!!!!!!

I had the thing out there for over 10 years without anyone touching it, but then I decorate it up for the upcoming election with some Luke signs and BAM.... its gone. So obviously, it has to do with a Luke Hating ReSantis Lover.

I can't believe the level that these maniacs will go. The Pittsburgh Parking Chair is serious business. If they will mess with a parking chair, just think what they will mess with if they get in power! Are they going to ban parking chairs? Outlaw the Pittsburgh left? Are they going to consolidate the three rivers down to two? Pittsburgh beware.

In other news, Halloween was really good for me. I passed out "Luke" stickers to all the little kids. They seemed so happy about it except for all those ungrateful kids who asked, "where's the candy?" The kids love the Mayor. But I was so mad that I didn't see any kids dressed up like The Mayor. I was going to follow SilverFoxy and give a dollar bill to the first kid dressed like The Mayor and since none showed up dressed like him, I played the numbers with it and my number almost hit. I did see lots of kids dressed up like ReSantis. They said they were zombies and goblins and gouls, but they sure looked like ReSantis to me!

I tried to get my grandson Little Frankie to dress up like The Mayor, but my jaggoff son and Little Frankie's jaggoff father said something about how some people might not like The Mayor and might not give him candy. While I thought of course those hateful ReSantis Lovers would make a kid cry by not giving them candy, I told him that he wasn't tricker treating in Squirrel Hill. This is the North Side and there might be one or two looney tunes on the North Side who are ReSantis Lovers but for the most part he would get MORE candy dressed like The Mayor. He didn't buy it and went as a Transformer. What jaggoffs I live with.

Now do you see why I am so mad?

What Kind of Dish?

After writing the brief "Outrage!" entry (see below) I was not going to blog anymore today. I have to get ready for the big Halloween party. But, I was reading the Post Gagette again, which, as you know, makes me gag. And I found something about some more insightful reporting which they plan to do. Check this out! It's from the "need your help" section of the web site. They need help writing an article about people's favorite serving dishes used for Holiday meals. I can hardly wait for the shocking coverage of this late-breaking news: Suburban Woman Loves Serving Stuffing in Pyrex Bowl! Or, how about the following groundbreaking expose? Shadyside Couple Uses a Platter they Bought in Provence! (P.S. Provence is a place in France. Shadyside people go there all the time.)

These kinds of stories are even more newsworthy than most of the stuff you see on WPXI. So, it did get me to wondering. What serving dishes would our mayoral candidates prefer?

I was thinking that ReSantis would probably prefer one of those gold-plated shovels that Republicans get when they go to groundbreakings for giant corporate office parks in places like Southpointe and Cranberry. ReSantis would use this shovel to serve up big helpings of b**ls**t! The shovel must be ReSantis' favorite serving dish. And I think he uses it all the time to serving steaming, heaping portions in his big downtown loft which is not even really in a Pittsburgh neighborhood.

Our Mayor Luke would probably prefer a dish that had been handed down through generations of Ravenstahls and was given to his wife as a wedding present by Luke's grandmother. It would probably be something in the shape of a pilgrim or a turkey, which show Luke's patriotism. I'll bet Luke and his wife use this dish when they serve thanksgiving to all of their neighbors in Summer Hill, which is a true Pittsburgh neighborhood.

I was just thinking that this would be another good reason to vote for Luke! Re Santis probably doesn't even have any serving dishes in the shape of turkeys or pilgrims! I think High tech people like ReSantis are all communists even though they are republicans. And everyone knows communists hate Turkeys because turkeys stand for freedom. Everybody also knows the Pilgrims broke away from England on the first thanksgiving so we could eat turkey and taste freedom! Luke commemorates freedom when he serves food on his turkey or pilgrim platter so a vote for Luke is a vote for freedom!


I cannot believe that the Gagette did not mention Strawberry Way and this blog in their article about women bloggers, which Pierre mentions in his post this morning (see below). I have written the following letter to the writer:

Miss MacKenzie Carpenter,

I cannot believe that your article in the Post Gagette (my knickname for your newspaper, ask Tim McNutty about it) failed to mention the ILuvLuke blog ( and its creator, Strawberry Way. Not only is it Pittsburgh's best blog, but it was started by a woman.

P.S. Are you any relation to two of my favorite singers, The Carpenters? Also, I wondered if you might be named after the great actress from
One Day at a Time MacKenzie Phillips. Please let me know.

A Quick Note From Me For I Am Very Busy

Hello from the Great City of Paris in the Great Country of Steeler Naton!

I must write fast for I must hook up two Laser Printers today for my job and remove one paper jam.

I was able to watch the Steelers win with my new Pittsburgh convert Andre at his work of place in the department store in the suburbs. It was fantastic to watch the Steelers trample the Cincinnati Pussy Cats! My record continues with never watching a game where the Steelers have lost. I look forward to watching the Steelers beat the Pussys again in December!!!

I missed mention of Strawberry Way as a Great Woman Blogger in your paper this morning?

In one week, I am counting the days until Mr. Ravenstahl winsfor the First Time as Mayor!!!

Ravenstahl WINS The Endorsement From This Website

This website has chosen to endorse Luke Ravenstahl for Mayor of Pittsburgh.

For us, it was an obvious choice because he is the best candidate.

Mr. Ravenstahl has the experience of being Mayor while the other guy does not. Think about it. If you were having brain surgery would you go with the guy who has actually been in an operating room? Or would you go with the guy who has "some good ideas" on how to do brain surgery? We would stick with the one with experience.

The Mayor, besides being one of the best looking mayors during our lifetime, has gotten the youngsters of the city excited about the future. There is a whole generation of Pittsburgh kids who can now say, "If that guy can do it, I can to!" The Mayor has shown that greatness is within reach for all of us. Now these kids instead of sitting there thinking, "Dude, I'll never be great because I am lame." They can now say, "I can reach greatness no matter what." That is what they call inspiring hope which is what The Mayor has done.

The Mayor has a grand vision for the city and that is nice. It is like having our own little JFK right here in Pittsburgh. And the great thing is that he is young and he can be mayor for a very long time. Many people are jealous of him because he is young. Us older people like him but it seems to be the middle age people who have wasted their youth smoking dope and listening to rock music are the ones who are his harshest critics because they wish they were in his young fancy shoes. They are the ones who wish they could be out until 2am going to concerts but instead they are stuck with their miserable lives sitting behind their keyboards blogging. They are also the ones who wasted their lives getting masters degrees instead of actually doing real things that normal 27 year olds do. We must remember Envy is one of the deadly sins.

The Mayor has brought out the best in the city. Take for example this Blog. If it were not for The Mayor, this Blog won't be around.

So in conclusion, we endorse Luke Ravenstahl for Mayor.

[There you go. There is our endorsement. And unlike the Post Gazette, we didn't spend half of it being all negative about that poo head other guy who is running for Mayor.]

My New Fantastic Story

Hello from Paris...

In my last post, I stated about the future "the local boggers will complain with things like "Grand Mayor Luke Ravenstahl XI took a GMC Space Defender 3000 which is actually a Home Solar System Security Space Craft to see the Tiger Woods cyborg replicant that was grown from actual Tiger Woods DNA.""

I enjoy the science fiction. So I have written the following story of shortness.....

My brain phone in the center of my brain was ringing. I answered it and it was The Grand President of All The Americas, Luke Ravenstahl.

"Pierre, I know you are in your grand penthouse apartment in Paris right now, and you have been such a grand help in making Pittsburgh the Capital of the All The Americas, but I need a personal consultation with you. Are you available?"

I checked my calendar. "My secretary has me leaving for my vacation house in Japan in a few hours to spend the weekend with Lindsy Lohan who is now clean and sober, but I will delay my trip and come to Pittsburgh now." I told the Grand President.

I jumped on the Maglev train from Pittsburgh to Paris that was built at a cost of $110000 trillion dollars and despite the expense, I was able to make it to Pittsburgh in 20 minutes. A parade of black limos met me at the Maglev station and drove me with police escort to "the Green Zone". We drove through the heavy guardians surrounding Grant Street Area. And I rode the solid gold evelator to the 80th floor of the City County Grand Capital of All The Americas Building that led me directly to Mr. Ravenstahl's office.

The elevator door opened and Mr. Ravenstahl stood up from behind his desk.

"Pierre, it is so good to see you. It has been so long." He came from behind his desk and shook my hand and we gave each other the european kiss on the two cheeks.

"Pierre, here is a cigar and a gobblet of scotch from Mr. Ford." Mr. Ravenstahl lit my cigar and the scotch tasted grand.

"Pierre, you have done so much for me but also for helping to make the Great City of Pittsburgh into the Capital of All of The Americas. You might think I might have forgotten that today is your birthday?"

I was surprised that with all the great things that Mr. Ravenstahl must keep in his mind that he would remember my humble birthday. "Sir, I am surprise."

"You are surprised now? Just wait." He motioned for me to walk over to a tall grand window. I walked over and we were so high up you could see all of Pittsburgh below.

"Happy Birthday, Pierre." Mr. Ravenstahl said and he pointed toward Mountain Washington. On the top was a 500 foot tall gold statue of myself looking out over Pittsburgh.

A tear grew in my eye. It was the greatest honor to be recognized for all my hard work in helping to make Pittsburgh the greatest city it had become.

The End

ReSantis-Satan: Is There a Connection?

Do NOT have Little Frankie dress up in his communion suit for Trick or Treat!!!! Oh my God, no! Halloween is the devil's holiday, and he does not like it one bit when trick or treaters dress like they are going to eat the body and and drink the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ on his holiday. (By the way, does anybody give that out on Halloween?) No, I am telling you Satan would not like this one bit. No matter how cute Little Frankie looks! I am afraid Satan might get so mad he would cause ReSantis to get elected, and we cannot have that. You know how Satan is! He has the power to make people vote wrong (that is, republican). Oh my God, wait! I just figured something out! ReSantis might BE Satan. Look: mArk deSANTis!!!!! All the letters are there you just have to rearrange them. Letters do not lie. Well, this as all the more reason to vote for Luke, who looked so cute in his first communion outfit. We know Luke is not Satan!

Warning To Parents In The City Who Are Going To Take Their Kids Tricker Treating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you are a parent and you live in the city and you are planning on taking your little precious ones out for Tricker Treating, don't go to any houses that have "ReSantis" signs in there yards.

Rumor has it that besides filling your kids bag up with a bunch of campain material, they are also going to be passing out really bad treats. Rumor has it that they are going to be passing out the following...

- Apples! ORGANIC APPLES! How awful!
- They are going to be passing out something called "Veggie Bootie" which is like little pieces of cardboard that is covered with veggitable dust. It is what they feed their kids instead of Cheese Doodles.
- They are going to be getting rid of all the left over vegitables from their local organic farm subscriptions which is where they get boxes of useless vegitables that "are in season" so your kid is going to end up with brussel sprouts and spinach and squash and maybe a head of cabbage.
- They might also give out toothbrushes. Or stuff about saving the planet!
- Beaware of stuff covered in "carob"!!! It looks like chocolate but ITS NOT. It is made of vegitables and they cover their dog biscuts with it so they can give their dogs chocolate because they think chocolate will give their dogs heart attacks.

Unless you want your kids to cry, don't go Tricker Treating at any ReSantis households!!!

I keep telling my grandson Little Frankie that if he is not good we are only going Tricker Treating at ReSantis houses. Then I tell him if he is not really good I'm going to dress him up like ReSantis (where I'd make him wear the frankenstien outfit he wore last year). But I really want him to go as the Little Luke Ravenstahl where he would wear his first communion suit and look all nice. That will be so great! So that little jaggoff better behave.

Debate Roundup....

Luke Ravenstahl wins.

Words And A Video That Shall Inspire Generations

Hello From the Steeler Nation State of Paris France:

I must confess that I could not stay up and find a place to watch the Steelers game this morning. I fill with sorrow at their lose. I am seeing a trend where the games that I have failed to see are the ones where the Steelers have lost! I have yet to watch the Steelers lose, but from now on I will make every effort to watch them to prevent any future loses.

I found a statement by Mr. Ravenstahl in the "Gagette" (I do not understand why people call it that but they find it funny so I will call it that too). You must scoll past the rotted words of The ReSantis but you will find Mr. Ravenstahl's statement like a flower at the bottom of the webpage.

My favorite line is when he says,
"It is my goal to make Pittsburgh the kind of place that my future children and grandchildren will choose to call home, just as I have."
I think we are having a hint of some future news! You might remember that over the summer when Mr. Ravenstahl and his wife went on vacation, I set forth the theory that in three months there would be an announcement of a future offspring! I wonder if this is the news. It has been three months. And it is inspiring that he knows his children will have children! May there be Ravenstahls running the City of Pittsburgh for Generations to come! By then, the local boggers will complain with things like "Grand Mayor Luke Ravenstahl XI took a GMC Space Defender 3000 which is actually a Home Solar System Security Space Craft to see the Tiger Woods cyborg replicant that was grown from actual Tiger Woods DNA."

I have tumbled on this wonderful video that shall inspire generations. Did they have a video like this for The ReSantis? Not that I would like to see it but does it show him riding polo ponies as a child?

The Police Hate Pittsburgh!!!!

I just read that the Police Union endorsed ReSantis.

I guess we should change the police motto to:
"To Serve [expressos] and Protect [Shadyside Yuppies with their Apple laptop computers]"

I don't understand why they hate Pittsburgh so much. Have they been breaking into the evidence room and smoking some of that demon dope?

Next time I see a cop, I am going to have to ask him what is going on. But now I'll be afraid he'll want to give me a hug or try to read me some beatnik poetry. Am I going to be safe in my neighborhood? It doesn't have a coffee shop with bongo playing hippies so will the police still be coming around to my nieghborhood?

I'll bet you a million dollars that IF by some freaky wierd thing that ReSantis wins (hahahhaha) , we'll be seeing the police driving around in VW Beetles or in Cooper Minis!!!!! Then they might be riding those Segway goofy things.

When they are running after a crook are they going to say, "PLEASE stop." When they are negogiating with some gun man holed up in a house are they going to say, "Come on out, you look like you need a big hug." And when they are reading them their rights, they will say "You have the right to a grande mocha with whipped cream on top!"

I am so confused! Are the cops going to be getting more fashion coordinated uniforms? Maybe start wearing those stretchy tight biker shorts? Are they all going to start drinking designer bottled water and doing group yoga? UGH!!!!!

Stop Promoting ReSantis

ILuvLuke Gets Results! Update: After I invited Tim McNutty from the Post Gagette to view Pittsburgh's Best Blog, he wrote to me saying he will publish a profile of our lovely Luke in Sunday's Gagette! I hope the profile will be truthful and show the real Luke to Pittsburgh! - Gay4Luke

[I totally missed this post from Gay4Luke yesterday and I think it is so great I'm making it the top story today - ILuvLuke(Strawberryway)]

There has been so much nasty news reporting recently about our Mayor Luke that I have been feeling really bad. So, Saturday night, I went out for a hard night of partying at some of my favorite gay bars. I went to bed feeling pretty good. But, what do you think I woke up to Sunday morning? No, not that you silly goose! (I wish!) Get your mind out of the gutter. This is a family-friendly blog! No, it was this! An appalling article in the terrible Mayor Ravenstahl-bashing Post Gazette by that horrid Luke-hating Tim McNulty. He has pretty much written a campaign ad for DeSantis! It makes me so mad I cannot see straight!

They're just basically saying that DeSantis is so great. That is a complete slap in the face to Luke, who is doing such a good job as mayor. Next thing you know the Post-Gazette will come out and endorse DeSantis--and then they will be just like that piece of Dick Scaife's used toilet paper, the Tribune Review. I wonder if David Shribman is actually Dick Scaife in disguise! Probably all that stuff about Dickie and Ritchie Scaife's icky divorce is just a ploy to make us think the Post Gazette is not another one of Dickie's hobbies. Dick Scaife is the kind of man who gives the word dick a bad name! Anyway, I digress, this article made me so upset it had me gagging, so now I am going to call it the Pittsburgh Post GAGette!

I want to say a few things about what is wrong with this article. But, first I want to write about the whole thing about Luke using the Homeland Security Vehicle (HSV) for going to the concert and out to bars. Luke is the Mayor, so he has to know how the HSV works! What better way to do this than test drive it? I feel better knowing that Luke knows how to operate the HSV, because I want Luke to be ready to take his rightful place behind the wheel when the terrorists come!! Just as Luke is behind the wheel driving our great city, so he should also be behind the wheel of the HSV. Besides, there were not any homeland security incidents the night of the Toby Keith Concert (well, unless you consider crappy country music to be a terroristic threat to National Security! I do!). And if there are no homeland security threats, then why shouldn't somebody make good use of the HSV? Everybody knows that cars work better when you drive them a lot!

Well, back to Tim McNuTTy's (notice my new knickname for the writer!) Post Gagette article. It says that DeSantis supported Rick Santorum. Well, in the words of Ricky Ricardo, DeSantis has "got some 'shplaining to do" before he gets my vote, no matter how much Post Gagette wants me to give it to him. Rick Santorum? Puh-lease! it is not for nothing that his name is also a dirty, dirty word which I cannot repeat here (look it up). The people of PA kicked Santorum out on his self-righteous fag-hating lilly white a*s, so we are not about to vote for any Republican mayor here in Pittsburgh, no matter what Tim McNutty and the Post Gagette try to tell us to do. Which, last time I checked, Pittsburgh was still part of the great state of PA. Of course, Luke does not support Santorum so that is a big bonus in his favor instead of ReSantis (I like this knickname!). Mr. McNutty does not mention that Luke does not support Santorum, so this is the first problem with the article.

Second, the other thing I did not like about the article was how it tells us that Mark ReSantis is so great because he is a high-tech executive and has gone to Washington DC and all sorts of stuff! So what? Who cares? Luke probably went to Washington once on a high school field trip or something! Didn't everybody? I certainly did and I am here to tell you that it is not all that great. Congress is spelled B O R I N G! Once was enough for me. You cannot even get decent peirogie there! Our 27 year old mayor has been busy running the City and going on Letterman to promote our city, and meeting celebrities. He certainly doesn't have time to go to Washington DC all the time and schmooze with a bunch of dumb politicians, especially when the place is filled with Republicans! Besides, Luke has not yet had time to become a high tech executive because he has devoted his entire 27 years to selflessly pursuing a public service career, not to becoming a zillionaire. So, that's a whole bunch more things wrong with the article!

Fourth, ReSantis is not married and does not have a family. The article says that he has devoted his life to being a workaholic and has not had time for a family. Doesn't he go out to bars and meet women who might want to marry him? At least Luke is married and has a nice wife. And they still enjoy setting a good example by going to bars and Toby Keith concerts with their friends and mingling with the public! The article does not mention this but I think it is important for our mayor to be married so that we can have a first lady of Pittsburgh. This is an important job! Think of all the good Mona Murphy did for our city while Tom was Mayor. I do not think the Post Gagette should be promoting a man to be mayor who nobody will even marry! Of course they never talk about this because they do not want Luke to be our Mayor anymore. So there is another problem with the article. They are trying to tell us to vote for an unmarried man to be Mayor!

Of course, I suppose maybe ReSantis could be gay, but I doubt it because he is not very good looking. And if he were gay, that would be okay because I think it is time for Pittsburgh to have a gay mayor! Why won't anyone who is gay run for mayor?! All of the potential gay mayors keep dropping out of the race, which is too bad. I would vote for a gay mayor and his partner to be the male "first lady of Pittsburgh!" If ReSantis is gay, the Mr. Tim McNutty should tell us, so that's another problem with the article. It does not tell us if ReSantis is unmarried because he is an man loving gay or just because he is a misogynistic woman hating jerk. And to think that they accuse Luke of hating women just because of that whole police protection from abuse nonsense!

ReSantis also worked for the First President Bush and the article tells us this as if we should be impressed by it. We're not. It obviously means that ReSantis is a Republican (which we already knew, of course) but how can they think a Republican can be Mayor of Pittsburgh? They are just so stupid!

Finally, this is the last thing about the article that is really dumb. Who cares how ReSantis pronounces the word "Measure?" They are trying to tell us that because he pronounces it wrong, he is not a true Pittsburgher, so he would be a good Mayor. Because, since he is a foreigner, he knows what is best for us. That makes me so mad I could spit!!! I don't want some guy from Mercer County (Where is that anyway? Ohio?) coming in here and telling me what to do. Only real Pittsburghers like Luke can know what is best for Pittsburgh and Pittsburghers

I don't know what is going on over there at the Post Gagette. But it is their job to report the truth to promote our city and our mayor and make sure we all look good. But then they go off and publish some nonsense promoting somebody who is running against our mayor. Somebody who is not even a democrat! They are supposed to support our City which is all democrats so they have made a big mistake by practically telling us to vote for ReSantis! I demand that Tim McNutty and the Post-Gagette give Luke equal time and write nice truthful things about him so that the Democrats of this City can make an informed choice for Mayor in November!

Updated: My New Letter to the Editor

Hello from glorious Paris...

After seeing this awful cartoon in your newspaper, I was called to action to send a letter to its editor. Here is the following text:

I am a long distance fan of the city of Pittsburgh and a proud member of the Steeler's Nation and I live in the other great city that starts with the letter P - Pittsburgh! It upsets me greatly to see your cartoonist Rob Rogers depict the young Mayor Ravenstahl as a Baby Mayor sitting in a baby chair. This dipiction wounds me like an arrow through the heart. It is clear that Mr. Rogers is very envious of the Mayor. I believe the next time he submits a doodle of the mayor as a Baby you should sit him down and try to work through with him why he feels so much hate. As his boss, it is the only compassionate thing to do except to fire him.
When doing my research on the internet about Mr. Rogers of Pittsburgh, I am surprised that a person so full of hate as Mr. Rogers was allowed to have a television show for children and that the city wants to put a statue in his honor near the casino. Pittsburgh always surprises me with its liberalism and acceptance of all things. I just wish Mr. Rogers would practice what he preaches and be a good nieghbor to the Mayor.

Update: I recieved the following from the Post Gazette Web Master...

Rob Rogers is a cartoonist for the Post-Gazette.Fred Rogers (host of the award-winning children's show Mr. Rogers'sNeighborhood) is a totally different person, unrelated to ourcartoonist.
Jody FarrWebmaster, post-gazette.com412-263-3571

I am so sorry Mr. Fred Rogers for dragging you into the muck and associating you with the Doodle Artist Rob Rogers. Please forgive me.

Advice For Ruth Ann Daily

I'm not a Bible thumper so don't think I'm one of those crazy people.

I posted a thing earlier today about how upset I was at a collum by Ruth Ann Daily. I tried to find some Bible quotes to send to Ruth Ann Daily pointing out that the Bible says you shouldn't pick on people who are in power like the Mayor but I didn't find any. I did find the following which I think she'll find inspirational... [click on the picture for the link]
