Actions have consequences: That's the sobering takeaway from two Steubenville, Ohio, high school football players being convicted (found “delinquent” in juvenile court jargon) of raping a Weirton, W.Va., teen girl in a series of drunken escapades. And other alleged actions could have even more widespread consequences: A grand jury next month will begin investigating if there was a cover-up by adults.

More “incentives”?: Allegheny County officials say they're working to prevent the possible loss of hundreds of jobs at Pittsburgh International Airport with the pending merger of US Airways and American Airlines. US Airways has a flight operations center and maintenance facilities here. The airline received more than $16 million in public incentives for the flight center. If keeping it here means more “incentives,” taxpayers should tell US Airways, which has shafted Pittsburgh before, to take a flight, so to speak.

This just in!: Pittsburgh Penguins officials have been forced to drastically turn down the thermostats at Consol Energy Center. And the folks at other hockey arenas where the Pens play have been forced to do the same thing, thanks to the 'Guins' ice-melting play as of late. The Pens are on a nine-game tear headed into tonight's game with the Washington Capitals. “Hey!” and all that.
