Moammar Takes A Powder – Regime Falls, Tripoli Taken, Son Seif al-Islam Captured

Wackadoo dictator Moammar Gadhafi has lost his 42-year death grip strangle hold on Libya.   I must say it couldn’t happen to a nicer sociopath mass murdered guy.  Moammar’s whereabouts are unknown at this time but it will not be long until somebody “squeals” and he get captured or surrenders.  Another son is talking to rebels about surrender.

Evidently his detractors call him frizz-head, LOL!

Now that Green Square has been taken, and Tripoli has fallen, it is only a matter of time until the cookie crumbles and Moammar heads off the The Hague to face “crimes against humanity” charges like his former tyrannical psychopath pal Saddam Hussein.  I would bet he meets the same noose fate.

Pennsylvania’s second-largest city is going Hollywood.  Pittsburgh, or more aptly named “Glitzburgh”, has hosted some serious movie action as of late.  The biggest movie to film in the area is the latest installment of the Batman franchise, The Dark Knight Rises

The Batman franchise has been commercially successful.  The last installment, The Dark Knight grossed over $1 BILLION! Bringing the film to Pittsburgh has been an economic boon for many downtown businesses and Greater Pittsburgh in general.  In addition, I read there were 3,000 extras hired for the film while in Pittsburgh.  9,000 people showed up for a chance to be in the movie.

Read the article from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and see what impact a big-budget film can have on the hosting community.
