Ride Hard And Proud, PittGirl, But Ride Smart

PittGirl -- saddled, sassy and spurs jangling -- has undertaken another for-the-children crusade, apparently without recalling that its predecessor eventually revealed the weaknesses of an emotion-trumps-reason approach to complex issues.

PittGirl (far left, with McMutrie sisters of Haiti-to-Pittsburgh fame) and her fellow crusaders mean well, and the woman proposing the project seems reasonable, but the information and opinions of InsolvenCity councilor Doug Shields and Frick Park's neighbors should be considered before any conclusions concerning the propriety of a proposed memorial treehouse could be considered reliable.
