Pittsburgh: They Know How Awesome We Are In Austrailia

“Pittsburgh has gone from rustbucket city to thriving metropolis.”
Pittsburgh

STEEL is forged into the very identity of Pittsburgh.

The former industrial powerhouse’s American football team is named The Steelers, and at one stage the city produced one-third of all of the steel in the United States.

Pittsburgh was staunchly blue collar, with a strong manufacturing workforce engaged in well paid jobs.

Then everything fell apart.

About JunkChuck

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.
