22. Some of those pics are from downtown
Where the G-20 people will be. And it looked just like that the last time I came across the Fort Pitt bridge at twilight. One of the most beautiful views in America.

One of them (the green leafy street pic) is from my neighborhood, right around the corner from my house. And it looks just like that right now.

One of them is of the Cathedral of Learning, and it looked just like that when I rode by on the bus a week ago. They cleaned the leftover soot off it a few years ago, with some of that money they supposedly don't have for public works, and it still looks great because our skies are clear now.

I didn't cherry pick any of those pics. That's just what it looks like now. People are renovating and improving. Remember all the projects in East Liberty? They're being torn down now and replaced with little cafes and artists' studios. We even have a strip mall that used to be defunct but is now thriving again, with a Trader Joe's and some other stuff. There is a closed factory down by the Waterfront, but they preserved the old smoke stacks as an art installation when they built a movie theatre, a comedy club, and restaurants.

You should visit sometime. It's nice here these days. You could sit by one of the (much cleaner) rivers and have a drink or two. Unwind a little. Lose some of the bitterness and get less wild around the eyes.
