Yinz Will Miss Her

25 Aug

Unfortunately, the Democrats’ oldest delegate, former Pittsburgh mayor Sophie Masloff, will be unable to attened the convention this week.  This is disappointing because national audiences will miss their chance to see what would have been a series of entertaing interviews with a piece of Pittsburgh’s poltical machine (Democrats have been mayor since the early 1930s) and a woman who sounds like your Jewish grandmother (if your grandmother was a Romanian Jew and only spoke Yiddish until attending grade school).

Perhaps she could attend the Obama/Steelers “double-feature” on Thursday back in the ‘Burgh.  Nothing says “turnout” like football and party platforms.
