Pittsburgh Laurels & Lances

Daily Photo Galleries

Laurel: To the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium. The African painted dogs exhibit is finis. That, in the aftermath of November's fatal mauling of a 2-year-old boy who fell into the exhibit. It was the first visitor death in the Highland Park zoo's 114-year history. Zoo boss Barbara Baker says the removal is needed to give the community a chance to heal. And that is fitting.

Lance: To A.J. Richardson. The Democrat Pittsburgh mayoral candidate continues to blame a police “conspiracy” for his personal woes. Please. Mr. Richardson, 36, of Sheraden, was arrested April 3. City police say he was found slumped over the wheel of a running vehicle in the middle of a street. Richardson is charged with driving under the influence and not having a valid registration.

Laurel: To the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Mighty 'Guins have clinched the Atlantic Division title in this lockout-shortened NHL season. And considering they cannot finish any worse than second in the Eastern Conference, they've also clinched home-ice advantage in at least the first two rounds of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Woo-hoo! And don't forget “Hey!”
