commented on The Terrible Gum Wall Ruins One of Seattle's Best Alleys
@32 - There's nothing edgy at all about the Eastside either. You know, the place where you live, full of Seattle Times readers who click their tongues and clutch their pearls at anything beyond their old and bitter legacies.
But here's an idea! I suggest banishing Seattle from your mind: never visit or even talk/write about it. You won't have an aneurism every time the stranger publishes something that gets your bloomers in a bunch and nobody will have to endure your asinine and obsessive commentary.
See? Problem solved for everyone.

Humpy, you'll be missed dearly. I hate television (aside from a couple of very specific things that pulled me in, one of which was BSG) but loved your column. I wish you all the best in whatever you're going to be doing now... the Portland Mercury is extremely lucky to have you (you're staying there, right?).
Also, the "Karen Silkwood shower" was genius. <3

Hey Slog family, with Paul Constant seemingly removed from his position at the Stranger for challenging the direction the paper is currently heading towards and just watching the exodus of talent over these last few months, I'm bidding adieu to Slog.
What made Slog home was the commenters - many of you are like family to me, dysfunctional at times, but still pretty awesome. This has been a unique place in the blogosphere. I will miss all of you very much.
All the great talent the Stranger used to have are on the twitters (including talent they still have like Ansel!) and you can also find me there also @PridgeWessea if you want to keep in touch. I wish everyone here the very best.
