Keep Pittsburgh Weird

I can't ignore it. I didn't want to blog about it. I figure I've done enough Pittsburgh-boosting for one year. Out with the old and in with the new for The Washington Post:

OUT: Portland. IN: Pittsburgh. (Put a bird on it? Get lost.)

For those of you who don't understand the "put a bird on it" reference. Portland is so 2011, so ... over. All the cool kids are moving to Pittsburgh. Why? Jobs:

Portland came in at No. 60 in a ranking of metro area job growth over the past decade. ...

... Austin topped the list, which was based on U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data, followed by Texas neighbors El Paso, Houston and McAllen-Edinburg. Pittsburgh rounded out the top five.

Emphasis added. Put a bird on it.
