You know nothing about me, and your presumptions are wide of the mark, but I hold nothing against you. I am sixty-one years old, I drive at (or slightly but reasonably below) the speed limit, I avoid highways because of enough nutso Pittsburgh motorists (if this metro area had decent public transportation, I’d never drive at all), and I find the local papers grossly unreadable (the prose is semiliterate at best) and obscenely overpriced (the news hole is shrinking to the circumference of a pinhole). The local dailies are moribund, and their demise will be unworthy of mourning. There's no pride in my saying any of this; I'm just a realist. Pittsburgh has the politicians it deserves. I’m not a Pittsburgher; I just live here, but I love it—the place, that is, meaning the architecture, especially, and the vivid neighborhoods—in a detached sort of way. I vote for national candidates only. A vote for Trump is a Dadaist gesture.
