The Pittsburgh difference

We went to a play on Saturday night: After Mrs. Rochester, at the Quantum Theater. It was well done, very interesting, but the highlight of the evening occurred before the play. When we drove up to the Carnegie Library in Braddock, where the play was presented, the mayor of Braddock directed us to a parking space, shook our hands and welcomed us to Braddock. The library is the first one built by Andrew Carnegie, and the auditorium has been beautifully restored. Steve, the New Yorker, constantly marvels at Pittsburgh. When he went to a baseball game the usher dusted off the seats before they sat down. Then he gets to shake hands with a mayor when he goes to a play.
