Bob, If you get a copy of this blueprint would you reveal to us the content and if it is indeed written in crayon as the rumors say?

As of 4:00pm the Mayor's campaign website lists the eleven items, a sentence each, with no detail. So far, typical for the Mayor.

"I stand here today, and these other individuals as well as myself stand here before you today, knowing that some others out there dismiss that we can expect a third Renaissance on my watch ... that some in the media are even bad-mouthing the idea of any third Pittsburgh Renaissance ... but I stand here in a spirit of confidence and optimism that Pittsburgh is ready to move ahead, ready to turn the corner, that that corner is upon us -- and with your help my administration and I and others that are with me as an individual, we will all deliver to you the next Pittsburgh Renaissance."

Just playing devil's advocate, here.
