Motznik, the Cat's Meow

When NPR announced that Jim Motznik's bill finally reached the floor of city council, I turned to my loving girlfriend and said, "This is why we don't need a full-time city council."

Why go after the big fish, like the fact the city is rotting from the core outwards, has a structural deficit problem, and a golf-addicted mayor who's best round was played in the pocket of UPMC. Throw in that mix the rampant spread of slumlords, the deterioriating infrastructure and the fact that the city employs one of every 6 city residents?

Thanks for weighing on this incredibly important legislation, Post Gazette. If we're going to editorialize over such mundane shit, perhaps we don't need a full-time editorial board either.
