Reminds me of when Touchdown Jesus was struck by lightning

Love this. We moved to Seattle eight years ago - drove a moving van through the 2008 "snowpocalypse" - and arrived in the U District December 23. With no friends in town and all possessions still in boxes, we spent Christmas Eve at the Jack-in-the-Box on the Ave. Our first glimpse of our new city and our new neighborhood. It was depressing, though I suppose at least we had each other.
Like in this piece, we now have a story about a sad holiday, plus we now appreciate friends and family so much more.

This is excellent. At what point do they name a clinic after him?

@1, thanks for the tip. Unlike this rag and King5, the SW article took the time to speak to a blood center representative. As they explain, yes the FDA removed the ban, but that means blood centers have to update their questionnaire system, then submit that to the FDA and await approval. It takes time. A protest is good to expose the backwards rule, but blaming local blood centers is counterproductive. They're on our side.

@1&8, I see it more as lazy than stupid. Racism, sexism, liberal-hating, they're all just so much easier than challenging oneself to think about society as individuals. These folks are just lazy, and this guy gives them license to find pride in that.

Assholes in masks break shit and other assholes with riot gear beat them down. And repeat. You're all assholes. What's the point?

Great review. I just saw this tonight and absolutely loved it.
Feb 10, 2016 McBomber commented on BREAKING: The FBI Is Moving in on the Remaining Oregon Militants.
Probably a calculated risk at this point. If the FBI ends up shooting four hold-outs after this long, it's much better PR than shooting 20-or so after a week. Less martyrdom fodder for sympathizers.
Jan 28, 2016 McBomber commented on Liveslogging the No-Trump Fox News Debate.
Damn! Missed it. I was in a class tonight. At break, the instructor joked, "Isn't the debate on right now? Should we stream it?"
A classmate shot back, "We're here to get smarter, not dumber." There is hope for the future.

@36, umbrella? Never. Though the cane sounds delightful and somewhat dignified. Or just a quick shove...
