Real World Opinons

Turns out that it's possible to get your opinion read by strangers even without having a blog. How strange.

My letter to the Post-Gazette about an article on the increasing support for municipal consolidation [Caution: may contain revealing personal information].

I'd like to write more about this at some point, but for now I'll just give you this to chew on: Allegheny County - a medium-sized county with Pittsburgh as its seat - has 130 separate municipalities for a population of about 1 million ( a third of whom are in the City - so that's 129 munis for 670,000 people, or about 5,000 per mayor). Now that's efficient. Or at least a really good way of dividing and conquering if you're a robber baron.
