Failed elder care: Kudos to the state Department of Public Welfare and Kiski Township authorities for quickly shutting down Wofford's Cherry Lane Manor when life-threatening fire safety issues were found at the senior living facility. The home had been operating under its second provisional license so these problems were not new.
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.
The show won't go on: The Westmoreland County Airport Authority has put the kibosh on next month's air show after the Air Force canceled the remainder of its Thunderbirds' aerial performances this year because of the dastardly sequester. We suppose finding another show headliner or pressing on with events that had been scheduled — rather than pulling the plug on the heels of the Air Force announcement — was simply out of the question. Whatever happened to the can-do spirit and determination that propelled the first pilots into the wild blue yonder?
