Heed thecall: Sala Udin, the former Pittsburgh City councilman who's now interim co-director of the insolvent August Wilson Center for black culture says the current board of directors should resign. Mr. Udin says that would be the first step in restoring confidence among past benefactors and entice future ones to support the Uptown facility. And he's right. And the sooner such a first step is taken, the sooner any journey to recovery can begin.

Strong bank: The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank finds itself in strong shape for November, traditionally its busiest month. And it's also partnering with other organizations with the ultimate goal of securing jobs for patrons, who then can do more to feed themselves. But the food bank always can use your help, not only during the holidays but all year. Learn how at pittsburghfoodbank.org/donate/.

Woot, woot!: Pittsburgh looked at least a bit more like the Steelers of old in its 23-10 victory over Buffalo on Sunday. But the win that lifted the Black and Gold to 3-6 on the season was overshadowed by reports that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, frustrated with the direction of the team, wants to be traded. He and the franchise quickly shot down the report. But strange things often happen in the immediate aftermath of rebuttals. Stay tuned.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
