Luke W. Ravenstahl

The Pittsburgh Police Bureau has just promoted three officers with histories of domestic disturbances, and in some cases domestic violence. You got a problem with that?

Mayor Luke Ravenstahl, who approved the promotions, could not be reached for comment. His spokeswoman, Joanna Doven, said the mayor would not discuss the promotions or their effects on women.

"He's not going to talk about that," Doven said.

To borrow a line from one of my favorite films, the mayor's the big shot around here, and we're just some schnooks like to get slapped around. Frankly, I haven't seen this combination of incompetence and arrogance since the last time I heard the president speak.

Remarks like this make Luke Ravenstahl's mom cry.

Ahh, Miller's Crossing...the forgotten classic in the canon of the Coen brothers.

I think a lot more people have become familiar with it over the years. It's a shame that Gabriel Byrne, who was just fantastic in it, never did anything else as far as I know that matched up.
