Is coming nearer on the path.

WTF -- Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania Slighted

CNN offers a quick summary of election activity around the country today, focusing, and justly so, on the gubernatorial campaigns in New Jersey and Virginia, which both have been about as nasty as these things get.

But in acknowledging the number of "major cities" voting for mayors on this fine autumn tuesday, New York, Detroit, San Diego and Atlanta are the only ones mentioned.

What about Pittsburgh?

And Pennsylvania has its own surprisingly contested Supreme Court retention election as well.

When did we become a less major city than Detroit or San Diego?

It's really sort of sad.
