In a city defined by water, a look at one way to get to it
The City of Pittsburgh, like many of its formerly industrial brethren, has made a number of moves to reclaim the working waterfront as active places for human activity. In most cases, this involves installing trails in linear parks with recreation nodes in place of the mills and plants that once relied upon water access.

The marina at Washington's Landing provides one exception where use of and engagement with the water occur as a matter of course.
Fixing our healthcare does not begin with legislation or vilifying the insurance industry. Rather, we must return to common sense food chains. We should not be at the same time subsidizing manufactured and unnatural foods that are bodies are unaccustomed to using and at the same time subsidizing an ever more complex system of making up for it. We'll lose our quality of life and go broke in the process.
