D. schnippert got it right
Kudos to D. Schnippert for her magnificent letter (Do I have this right?, South Pittsburgh Reporter 3/15/11).
She must have read my mind! With the transition of South Side Hospital, moving the police station to Allentown, Schwartz Market closed, Market House closed for who knows how long, rumors about closing the Carson Street Post Office, what else? The fire station on 18th Street?!
It appears to me that someone is trying to get rid of the older generation by making living on the South Side "inconvenient." Who knows?
