There's a difference between honoring the past and being stuck in the past. Pittsburgh honros the past and sometimes goes a bit overboard with the nostalgia. But having spent time in SoCal, I would rather live through 30 Pittsburgh winters then have to put up with most Southern Californians for one summer.

Sorry guys, but it's the truth. Change and Pittsburghers are like oil and water. All anyone who lives here has to do is look at all of the whining that is and has been done whenever there's been talk of redeveloping the Fifth and Forbes Ave. corridors. Or when the plans were drawn up for the new Three PNC office tower that is now under construction - even though PNC owned the land. Or the proposed North Shore connector for our subway line that would connect PNC Park and Heinz Field with downtown without having to walk across the bridge. One excuse after another, and it's that way for damn near anything new that gets planned here. That's why Pittsburgh, while it is moving forward, is moving at a much slower pace than it should be.

Believe, Cincinnati is no different.

As far as Pittsburgh and it's people are concerned......this guy is taking about a city that had to remold itself from an industrial based city because it's entire economic lifeblood disappeared in the matter of a few short years. And this guy has the nerve to say that it's people do not react well to change????????? DUH!!!!! This guy doesn't have a clue about the people in that town.

Change is tough no matter where your at or which city. People get comfortable with what they know and when change happens it shakes things up a little to much for most people.

This thread really can't go anywhere. Even the most progressive cities see some resistance to change. People praise KC and it's progressive philosophies, but what's the last time you met someone who really wanted to go live in KC.

I guess it's all about home and where we feel comfortable. For me, that's always going to be Western Pennsylvania.

I think that the article is true. But that is why I love the Burgh ! There is a warmth and good feeling there that brings you back to days gone by when politenes and morality was something that was more common place.

Be careful now. That's close to the working definition of Southern Hospitality and we all know that all Southerners are backwards rednecks.

Or at least that's what the "progressives" in places like KC and NYC want us to think.

Well said - I moved away for economic reasons and have lived in Atlanta for 25 years, but my hometown will always be Pittsburgh.
