It has been a while since I have posted any pictures of Bakery Square – with the colder weather I have been doing less walking. I did pull over to take a picture of the buildings today – looks like quite a bit has been built in the past 2 months.

This little note was sitting with some literature about diabetes on the side table in the waiting room at the doctors office. I wonder how long it has been sitting there.

1 week until election day. Barack Obama is here in Pittsburgh to an electric crowd.

Pittsburgh in forefront of election coverage…not good this time

Multiple sources are reporting about a developing story from Bloomfield.  A woman was robbed at an ATM and when her assailant saw her McCain bumper sticker, he allegedly “carved” a ‘B’ into her face.  It’s always sad when things like this happen and it’s kind of scary to see the election drama continue to escalate from verbal threats to now physical violence.  The attack was not caught on the ATM’s video tape, so hopefully police will be able to piece things together.

Details are still really sketchy at this point, but the story is being reported by the Post Gazette (second link is their political blog, Early Returns), WTAE and even the Drudge Report (and I’m sure many others as well).  Not a good way to bring Pittsburgh back into the national spotlight.

Update: Good gravy!  This story just keeps going!  A couple reports are now surfacing saying that this might have been faked.  I do have to agree with what I read at “Early Returns,” it is strange that she refused medical attention initially, it struck me as odd the first time I read it, but I guess I just passed over it as the stress related to the incident.  Who knows, more information will be probably keep showing up this weekend about this.  I’ll be gone camping, but I’ll see what I can find out when I get back on Sunday!

Update 2: Good god!  Now the police are saying that the entire incident was made upand will be charging Ms. Todd with such.  So crazy!  It still doesn’t look good for Pittsburgh (although really, what would life be without a little crazy?), but at least the election isn’t turning as outwardly violent as I once thought.
