Does this mean Luke and Yarone have to take down the “No Gurls Allowed” signs from their wing of the City-County Building? Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl, speaking to the crowd, said he had not made many female appointments since taking office, citing two additions, but pledged to “diversifying” city government wherever possible. “I want you […]

Funny Man

New York based comedian Victor Varnado is hysterical.  Check out this Village Voice article to see for yourselves.  He occasionally rolls into town courtesy of local comedian Gab Bonesso.  ****************************************************** Disclosure and update:  Ledcat told me I wasn't being completely honest about this post.  We saw Victor a few weeks ago when he came to […]

Butchin’ Up Jesus

Second, the burgh report has […]
