Okay Yunzer. Here's a project. Go onto www.maps.google.com
Pick ten cities at random from around the world. Yinz can even pick twenty, n nat.
What do you see? I see cars, freeways, shopping malls, high rise apartments and office buildings. Massive skyscrapers. Factories, more shopping malls. Rows upon endless rows of suburban housing. Whether I look in Taipei or the furthest northern parts of Canada, or along the coast of Namibia, we see the same thing. If you go to the larger cities of China, or India or Russia, same thing. Pick twenty cities. Pick Pittsburgh.
