Pittsburgh Has Seen Marcellus' Kind Before

An interesting catch by the Slagger presents the curious case of the disappearing (almost) Marcellus Shale conference.

Kathryn Klaber, formerly a cog in the Pittsburgh region's archaic, obsolete and self-serving 20th Century power structure, has switched employers -- she now is associated with the Marcellus Shale Coalition, a $3-million-a-year shill shop -- but Ms. Klaber's job description hasn't changed much. She is still promoting an ossified layer of sludge that promises to "rescue" the region but isn't much interested in discussing the costs of its brand of salvation.
