I truly do not understand why this cannot be ironed out. The politicians need to quit talking out of their behinds and get something done.

The fact is, with or without the Pens, Pittsburgh is in need of a new "all purpose" venue---we lose tons of concerts and other events every year because Mellon Arena is old and outdated. If we keep the Pens it'll be a whole lot easier ot pay for such a venue and better for the all around economy of the city.

If Pittsburgh becomes a one sport town (I don't count the Pirates) it'll be one more sign of our decline into mediocrity as a city. Certainly it is proof of the lack of vision in the region and I am disturbed.
