Another city, not my own

In what city does Dan Rooney live?

"There are lot of things to do in the city," said Rooney, who moved with his wife, Patricia, back into his late father's house on the North Side years ago from Upper St. Clair. "It's a good place. They usually clean the streets of snow in the city, and where he is going to live is pretty good."

They usually clean the streets of snow? Which streets? During the week of the recent snow and ice storm, the residential streets in Brookline remained untreated from Tuesday on. I'm tempted to make a snarky remark about how it must be nice to live on the North Side--the home of our present mayor and the home of former mayor Tom Murphy--but the comments about snow removal over at this blog indicate that salt and plow trucks were scarce over there as well.

In any case, I welcome Mike Tomlin and his family to the city of Pittsburgh, and I hope Mr. Rooney pays him well. The city dearly needs his tax dollars.
