  • Attila Domos: Overcoming Life’s Challenges

    Attila Domos: Overcoming Life’s Challenges

    Also at: www.attiladomos.com I love debates (not arguments), love my Pens, Steelers and my fantasy football team! I’m turned off by unintelligent and/or narrow minded people.

    Profiles: David B. Mitchell, Reflections of a Borough (Wilkinsburg, PA)

    About Wilkinsburg, PA (From the Government site) The borough’s proximity to Pittsburgh and its location along main lines of transit from outlying areas were key to its founding and early development.
