        Do you think he wants this to be news? Do you think he wants everyone in the city of Pittsburgh looking into every little detail of his life? No. How bout you go get a life.

    He can now leave his son home alone, dress entirely in black and wander around his Troy Hill neighborhood as a Ninja Warrior.

  8. Annie says:

    I am very sorry for both of them. I hope the news and nebby people can let these two people work this out for them and most of all their little boy, Cooper.
    Despite what and how we feel about our Mayor. It’s none of our business!!

      Wrong! When you aspire to run for office and are elected, all bets are off, you now become a public servant and your business does become our business, like it or not.

    MCKEES ROCKS (KDKA) — Police are looking for an escapee in McKees Rocks.

    It all started when officers arrested Lamont “boog’ Goodwine, Jr., during an undercover drug operation at a house on Ella Street.

    He annoys me. I bet he was a whiner. Glad he is yours Pittsburgh.

    Teh winnar Ist Luek no baby mama

  12. Cam says:

    Who cares if they are divorcing. Why would he state that we should continue to respect his privacy? He is the one putting the divoce announcement out there.

    Perhaps Ravenstahl should focus on the city of Pittsburgh for once, and not himself. He sure can’t compare to Bob O’Connor who truly loved and worked hard for our city.
