The Dying Whale is gonna be the hottest new brunch spot of 2017.
Jan 26, 2016 Mike Force commented on All the Natural (and Man-Made) Disasters You Should Worry About.
Sydney really cranked it up to 11 on that jazz solo of an ending :)
Jan 4, 2016 Mike Force commented on When It Comes to Housing, San Francisco Is Doing It Wrong, Seattle Is Doing It Right.
All I've ever read about this implies that SF property owners have colluded with local government to make it harder to build so that they can capitalize on rising property values and high rents, basically maintaining an inelastic supply so prices have no chance of decreasing.
Dec 21, 2015 Mike Force commented on Sales of Print Books Are on the Rise Again.
Maybe a lot of readers are like me. They bought a kindle, didn't like it too much and went back to print exclusively. There's nothing less satisfying than owning a really good book on the cloud.
Apr 30, 2015 Mike Force commented on One for the Regrets Issue.
for the record, the Suggests pdf went to the printer with an image. Everything was normal. Something weird happened at the printer.
Mar 27, 2015 Mike Force commented on An Extremely Attractive Group of Greenpeace Activists Is Stalking Shell Rigs Across the Pacific Ocean.
I'd watch Attractivists on the Discovery Channel.
Mar 26, 2015 Mike Force commented on Lynn Shelton's New Project Is Set in Seattle. She Can't Shoot It Here..
We DO incentivize hundreds of businesses and sectors. Those quick to say 'race to the bottom' are basically wishing away the concept of an open market where States compete for business (and overall revenues), which will exist whether you want it or not. California is only now re-thinking their incentives because they've hemorrhaged so much revenue to New Mexico.
Mar 20, 2015 Mike Force commented on Mayor Ed Murray Wants to Ban Smoking in Parks, and the City Says There's Nothing Unfair About That.
So the city that legalized weed is now going to micro-manage tobacco smokers? it's an unenforceable law. it's too easy to ignore, like banning dogs on beaches. A true progressive accepts that not everyone has identical priorities.

You may need to give birth to a new genre: Metal Dandy.
