Memo to the Heinz people - Pittsburgh ends in 'h'

Funny how such a simple thing such as, GASP, fact-checking can get overlooked by a multibillion dollar company such as Heinz.

Yes, people, Pittsburgh is spelled with a 'h' at the end....

...just not on the millions of 140 year commemorative bottles that just hit the shelves.

And yes, I will consult for money.... ;)

Pittsburgh was Pittsburg. The city couldn't quite make up its mind and, I believe, it went back and forth about it before finally adopting the "h" which is characteristic of the Scotts.

I think Heinz's bottle was correct at the time and is, then, historically correct now.

I love our town.
