You Know What Really Bugs Us About The South Side Drinking District The Mayor Is Protecting?

What is most disturbing about this Tribune-Review report that a bar in Pittsburgh's South Side Intoxication District has been ordered closed by Allegheny County health officials for operating without hot water or gas but with clogged sinks and an insect infestation?
1. The same establishment was ordered closed by the health department two months ago, but had been operating recently nonetheless.

2. The same establishment was cited nearly 10 years ago for failing to operate a legally sufficient restaurant.

3. The insect infestation reportedly featured insects inside "numerous liquor bottles."

4. Because no one has been reported to have been killed or severely injured as a result of this bar's operation, this joint doesn't even make honorable mention on the South Side's "worst bars" list.
Happy Hour special: When cited by the Liquor Control Board a couple of years ago, this fine establishment was represented by the law firm that employed InsolvenCity's current solicitor (whose current job, of course, is to devise legal strategies to combat the public nuisance created by many of his former South Side clients). How's that coming along, counselor?

Well, as long as you're talking about Carson Street proper and not the South Side residential areas like Josephine Street, then it's ... oh, wait a minute. Nevermind.
