It's Official: Hosting G-20 Event Makes No Sense

On one of those vapid local vanity programs that makes one pine for 30-minute infomercials, I watched Bill Flanagan (the affable mouthpiece for the region's ossified, obsolete, selfish, self-promoting power structure the Allegheny Conference), present what I take to be the official list of reasons infliction of the G-20 event on Pittsburgh makes sense.

This has solidified my conclusion that hosting the G-20 makes no sense. WWVB agrees, more eloquently.

Watching four or five minutes of this morning's Region's Business Report made Billy Mays' death seem all the more tragic.

UPDATE: I don't think Mr. Flanagan and the Allegheny Conference approved this G-20-related release.
