Should be fun stuff.  Will be interesting to see what sort of perimeter the authorities set up around the shores of the Allegheny River.  More to the point, how far away do they keep the sure to come anti-globalization protesters?  I’m sure Oakland will be abuzz with activity that week, but the professional agitators will want to be much closer than that.  I feel for anyone that works downtown.  Even where I work out in Robinson could be interesting if my commute to/from Ohio is poorly timed wrt a dignitary travelling to/from Pittsburgh International.  But in any event its a nice bit of publicity for the city and the region.  Hopefully the world enjoys their stay!
