You can check out my Wecht trial blog posts of the day here on the Pittsburgh Channel.
Meanwhile, here's the latest on some issues bubbling at the other end of Grant Street.
The Burgh Report's post on this flow chart from the mayor's office has stirred up a flurry of discussion.
The Ravenstahl administration is saying that the chart was an informal illustration of lines of communication within the mayor's office... not lines of authority. It notes, for example, that "there is no permitting department".
Just before noon, the mayor's office sent this update to council.

Dear President and Members,
Attached is an updated organizational chart of the Mayor's office for
your information. I will also be delivering hard copies to Council's
front desk. Thank you.

Here's the attachment. I'm sure there's more to come on this. The Burgher just called to my attention that the chart shows the law department under the Mayor's chief of staff Yarone Zober.
