CELEBRATING PITTSBURGH

My lovely city celebrates its 250th birthday on friday.....

ABC's "Good Morning America" will broadcast live from Pittsburgh's North Shore on Friday to celebrate the city's 250th anniversary. Meteorologist Sam Champion will be on the riverfront near North Shore Drive and Heinz Field

I am looking forward to see the city highlighted, it is such a wonderful jumble of small towns rolled up together into a city.... and somehow, always seems to come through the roughest of times and troubles. I love the history, the people, the diversity... its a great place to call home!

Pittsburgh has probably improved more than any other U.S. in the last 25 years. Thousands of steel related jobs are gone but it is a pretty city.

Congratulations Pittsburgh. Been there once and caught a hockey game. Mario was playing. All the best to Pittsburgh and its citizens. Happy 250th.

Even though I moved away almost 30 years ago (and now live just a couple hours north) I still consider Pittsburgh home. The people there are some of the friendliest in the world - just stand on a street corner and a total stranger will begin talking to you like they're known you all their life. Cheers to the Steel City.

Love Pittsburgh!

Always happy when a union conference or convention is scheduled there.

Don't love the Pirates however- they beat my Orioles in two World Series [1971 and 1979- we owe them].
