It might have been Pittsburgh, but I somehow don't think so. It was several years ago, so I know it predated the current efforts of the City of Pittsburgh by a fairly considerable span of time. My admittedly fuzzy recollection is that the room was smaller and the setup a bit less formal than I would think one might find in Pittsburgh. Dunno.

I hope someone can find the link because it offers a classic insight into the "We've got to do SOMETHING!" mentality. Never mind that the "something" is totally illogical and won't (can't) have any effect on the [perceived] problem, it's all about appearing to have "taken some action."
