Yesterday, on the JetBlue flight west, I had the chance to watch Stephen Colbert's interview with Mayor John Fetterman of Braddock, PA, a depressed steel town outside of the 'burgh.
Check it out:
I'm impressed. Mayor Fetterman seems to be the kind of dynamic young leader with drive and creativity that's much in need in Southwestern Pennsylvania.
I've only been to Braddock once, I think. When I worked for the Carnegie Hero Fund Commission, we visited the Carnegie Library of Braddock with guests from the Carnegiestiftelsen of Sweden. Braddock's library was the first Carnegie Library in the United States.
