As people gather in D.C. today to demand President Donald Trump release his tax returns, others in more than 100 cities around the country will join in. That includes in Pittsburgh. The march here begins at 10 a.m. at the City-County Building and will make its way to Market Square. Organizer Ian Price said it’s necessary to see “how President Trump gets his money and keeps his money” as those are “national security issues … that should be open to the public.”
Add PETA to the list of people and organizations that are mad at councilmember Darlene Harris for riding a Shrine Circus elephant and camel. Pittsburgh City Paper has a copy of the letter, written in response to Harris' "request for proof of abuse at the Shrine circus." The letter states that "Traci, the elephant you rode recently, was leased from Carson & Barnes Circus, a notorious animal abuser with repeated violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act." Harris told The Incline the "animals were treated better than I’ve seen some humans being treated."
