Lamer than ever: Lame-duck Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl, who appears to spend more time out of the office than in, continues to refuse to release his public schedule. But he does continue to honk people off. In what he said was meant as a lesson in “media hypocrisy,” he tweeted about a city police lieutenant who also works as a college basketball referee, oftentimes out of state. Lt. Larry Scirotto, who says his police jobs remains his top priority and his time away is on the up and up, was not amused.

Time to regroup: The 5-7 Steelers return to action Sunday at home against the 6-6 Miami Dolphins. Heading into the game, the Black and Gold are in third place in the four-team AFC North and one of four AFC teams with that 5-7 record. A Pittsburgh loss against the Dolphins would pretty much end its hopes of making the playoffs and prompt a pretty intense round of late-season soul-searching in the front office.

Be careful out there: Lest we forget, Pennsylvania gun season opened on Monday. Have fun out there and enjoy the hunt. But be careful and obey the rules.
