Forgettable Pittsburgh

Remembering Pittsburgh is a modern collection of columns recalling events from Pittsburgh as culled from the pages of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (which merits a story as the first newspaper-1786-west of the Alleghenies).  While most of the stories are interesting, the collection is haphazard.   No stories cover the major college or professional sports teams, for example,   And because the stories were bound by the rigid constraints of newspaper column inches, the background or context of the events within otter's bigger historical picture is sometimes sketchy.  A book that expanded on the stories to provide the context might have been more interesting.
