Could SPD possibly care less about enforcing traffic violations like blocking the intersection, driving your car in the bus lanes, or parking in bike lanes?

I wonder what decade the last ticket for blocking an intersection was given out in.

I'm with you @1

Is it even possible to remodel a cool venue and have it come out still cool?

I'm very anxious to see what comes out of this. I feel like the only guarantee is that every drink will cost $2 more.

Whitefish is a pretty cool ski destination for what's it worth. Cool mountain scene up there.

Looks like something went wrong with the bold-ing of the winners and categories in your list of results...

*Downtown Bellevue
And I'm not using the basic ethnic or gender/LGBT definition of "diversity" there. Apologies if that was a bad word choice.
I'm talking about diversity in how people make a living, how people live, what people make, where people came from, what communities people build.

Downtown Bellevue is one big mall. And it's a nice one! Lot's of people really like it. But there's no grassroots (ugh I hate that word) art or music culture there.

Developers know how to build apartments and malls. I don't think anyone has ever funded and built a shiny new glass, metal, and concrete artists' commune.

And to be clear, Seattle absolutely should (and is) build(ing) a lot of new housing units. And HALA will hopefully make is possible for anyone that makes less than $150,000 a year, or isn't white or Asian, or doesn't have a traditional office job, to move into any of them.

But the "answer" to alternative-living groups of artists like Ghost Ship, of which I'm proud to say Seattle has it's own great examples, is not to simply eliminate them.

You can't have a city that will attract a diverse, interesting population with only brand new buildings. Please don't advocate for turning Seattle into Bellevue.

Even if you somehow build enough new apartments to drive supply high enough to make them affordable to middle class, or even working class, people and artists (which is extremely implausible), you'll still lose all of Seattle's arts and music scenes; first the underground, and then entirely. You'll have no more practice spaces, performance spaces, group houses, and all the other arrangements that make a city with art and music a city with art and music.

@5:

That sort of extreme use of force over small (or nonexistent) crimes is way too common to be considered a "fuck up".

I just want to say that NICE's letter is one of the best written and properly nuanced pieces about the whole "friend-zone" thing I've seen to date. Really good stuff.

And I agree with him, Dan. As men who are educated and empathetic about sexuality and relationships, we should absolutely work to demonstrate to straight men that they absolutely can be attractive to straight women without resorting to abject assholery. Being a sniveling "Nice Guy(tm)" will never be attractive. But having solid mental health, doing the work to be the best version of yourself, and then getting out there and showing yourself off (tactfully)? That shit works.

Stealing from Safeway et.al is VERY different than stealing from your fellow man.
Go read about the difference between private and personal property as it pertains to socialism, etc.

Regardless, theft prevention isn't part of a grocery clerk's job and shouldn't be. Hopefully the clerk this post is about are just power-tripping assholes rather than just afraid to lose their jobs.
