5. No, my grandparents and parents are all dead.
And so is the hope of real business and industry there. I don't even think of Pittsburgh as being part of the Rust Belt. It's part of the Ash Belt. There's nothing there any more. Makes Hiroshima and Nagasaki, post-bomb, look like a vacation spot.

And the unemployment there makes Michael Moore's sad, abused Detroit look like Walt Disney World.

No, I don't think protesters will burn down any buildings for the G20. There probably isn't anything left to burn. And there aren't any Buddhists there who would be willing to accept the Real Death and incinerate themselves in protest. So I guess the only thing burning at the G20 will be the remnants of the American economy.

Maybe they can import some beef from Argentina and grill some steaks for the good ol' boys there; I hear we don't make cattle in America any more, either.
