It's not true, they didn't come anywhere near my tabloids…

Pittsburgh gives up on “redd up,” will move G-20 to Savannah.

luke Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and his Public Works Department have been struggling recently to clean up and revitalize downtown Pittsburgh in anticipation of the September G-20 Summit. But today, the Mayor admitted defeat.

“It’s just too big a job.” He said, at a noon news conference outside the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. “We can plant all the new saplings we want, we can pick up the litter and paint over the graffiti, but, at the end of the day, it’s still Pittsburgh!”

Ravenstahl said he will hand off the summit to Savannah, Georgia, “A nice, warm, clean, vibrant southern city, where you won’t constantly be reminded that Pittsburgh invented decay and pollution.”
