A job well done: To many, Gim Yee was the face of justice in Allegheny County. And while you might not know the name, you'd know that face anywhere. Mr. Yee was the sheriff's deputy caught in so many photos and news videos escorting criminal suspects to court appearances. Yee, 62, retired last month after nearly 33 years of service. We wish him the best in retirement (and maybe just a tad more anonymity).
Bucs are battlin': The Pittsburgh Pirates have been tearing up the diamond and against some quite formidable foes. And that's as the franchise has faced some major obstacles, such as key injuries and erratic pitching. The Pirates sat atop the National League Central after pummeling St. Louis on Sunday. Perhaps this is a harbinger of good things to come. Let's hope it's not simply the prelude to Pirates Colony Collapse. We still think bringing back the Green Weenie would be a good insurance policy.
