Pittsburg PR people dropping their "'aitches"

An offended Pittsburgh newspaper columnist has had a pop at some online PR efforts by the lobby group known as Americans Against Escalation in Iraq, writing:
‘If you want people to take you seriously, learn how to spell the name of the city your news release is targeting. The anti-war group failed to do that last week when it sent a mass e-mail to reporters with the following headline: “White House PR Front Group Targets Republican Members of Congress on the War with New Ads in Pittsburg.”
Pittsburg? (They shoulda written Pittsburgh in Western Pennsylvania, with an ‘h’ at the end). There’s a Pittsburg in Kansas. There’s one in California. There isn’t one in Pennsylvania.
Spell-checkers or geography majors welcome to join this under-pressure pressure group.
