I always find it fascinating to look at the various news websites after something like the healthcare reform vote last night. It’s pretty clear to me that if you’re only going to one news source for your news you’re doing it wrong.
Landmark health care reform heads to Obama’s desk
A sweeping bill overhauling the U.S. medical system goes to President Obama’s desk on Monday to be signed into law.

Following the vote on the massive health bill, Republicans challenged the Democratic bill’s language barring federal funding of abortions, saying it was weak and would effectively allow public funding for abortions.
The House passed the overhaul — now what?
Relieved Democrats may still be celebrating the passage of landmark health care overhaul legislation, but Republicans in the Senate still have an opportunity to try to derail the bill.
Health Care Bill PASSES
After more than a year of virulent debate, Democrats marched through a throng of jeering protesters, whose slurs recalled a Washington of the 1960s — when the party forced civil rights legislation and Medicare through a fiercely divided Congress. Against unified Republican opposition, they built on that foundation Sunday with the passage of a health care reform bill that extends coverage to 32 million Americans and tightly regulates the insurance industry.
US House passes historic health reform
The US House of Representatives has narrowly voted to pass a landmark healthcare reform bill at the heart of President Barack Obama’s agenda.

Below is the complaint I sent to PAT and to their CEO Stephen Bland.
I was traveling on my bicycle at around 15-20mph passing through the intersection at Penn and 31st. I was in the middle of the right lane preparing to clear the intersection and ride on the bike friendly section of Penn Ave. A bus approached from behind, honked their horn, started to change lanes and pass me. If it would have ended there I wouldn’t be sending this complaint.
Instead of completing the pass, the driver began to turn into the right lane while I was still in it. I could have reached out and touched the bus without extending my arm he was so close. For the next three blocks I kept my same speed and kept up with the bus. Not sure what the hurry was that he had to pass me like that and risk my life.
This isn’t the first complaint I have filed like this. A very similar incident occurred on Liberty Ave on May 21st of last year. I ride the bus regularly and I feel that incidents like this need reported and dealt with.
This is the second complaint I have submitted like this. In fact I searched my email and replied to Mr. Bland using the same email from last year and added my new complaint. He responded and said he would look into it.
Anyone who knows me knows I am a Qdoba addict. I not only love their burritos but their no nonsense approach to ordering. They get you in and out in a hurry. It’s good for them and it’s good for their customers.
Today at one of their downtown Pittsburgh locations rather than stop the line from moving while they waited for their register to restart they gave each customer their lunch for free.
They know why people choose Qdoba for lunch and didn’t want something like a cash register failure to change that.
