IT IS NOW A TWO-MAN RACE
Political analysts say that Councilman Bill Peduto's decision to drop out of the race for Mayor of the City of Pittsburgh was the direct result of the recent Carbolic Smoke Ball poll that showed Professor Emcee Square, host of WBGN's Saturday fright flick "It's Alive," emerging as the winner in a landslide, and Mayor Luke Ravenstahl garnering twice as many votes as Peduto. "It is now a two-man race," said mayoral spokesman Dick Skrinjar. "That ghoul on TV scared Peduto out of the race. I'd say we have our work cut out for us."
