Submissions for CapCon 242 [click on second image above] featured a swarm of "rat race" references, and the best came from a Washington County resident collecting his third title — and umbrella — of 2014. Let’s see if another veteran or a newcomer does best in CapCon 243, which doubles as a good reminder to schedule your twice-a-year dental visit, if you've forgotten.
Send up to three entries to email@example.com or mail to: Caption Contest/Portfolio, Post-Gazette, 34 Blvd. of the Allies, Pittsburgh PA 15222. Please include name and address and identify your municipality or Pittsburgh city neighborhood. Deadline: Aug. 25. Winners receive a PG umbrella — smaller than a Ross Township sinkhole, but still big enough to keep you dry.

“This is ridiculous. You win, you get a six-figure salary and stock options. I win and I get a piece of cheese.”
