pittsburgh......a dying city

i live in pittsburgh. i know, congrats to me.......big fuckin deal. hey i'm not thrilled either. this city is in such dire condition its scary. first , its bankrupt. our bond rating is something like a c---. what that means to the average layman is that if you offered someone a pittsburgh bond for free they would say " thanks". second, our mayor is an asshole. he has put this city in the financial straights that it is currently mired in. bad deals with department stores, cutting deals with certain unions for votes.......well goes on and on. third, this is one old city. our population is the second oldest in the country behind dade county florida (which is really just a cemetary with the dead above ground ....for now). my advice to any young person just graduating college here is " get the fuck out of here". this city is controlled by old people and the churches. they fight anything new. it took forever to get slots voted through because the churches were against it. so wwelcome to my dying city. come see it before life support is pulled.
