I figured the police shot the cat as a matter of course.

"and naturally it involved a strip tease and an appearance by a man described as "bonkers" by the Prime Minister of Bolivia."

Wrong country

Wake me up when they replace "Budweiser" with "Under God"

I guess this makes sense as a general point about the media, but not so much with Nate Silver and Their entire reason for existence is interpreting polls and predicting who is going to win.

Now if Clinton picks Trump as a running mate, and Trump picks Clinton, the cycle will be completed.

@5 I will add that the folks who frequent Nextdoor represent a very narrow demographic. Don't think for a moment that they actually represent the neighborhood. The sane people don't post there.

@5 What you say about the nimby's is true, except the condos are already built, the parking is already gone, and the people are already there. All that is fine with me if there is a way to get around the city.

@2 whatever, same tactics. Metro operates the light rail for Sound Transit.

@3 the timeline is the problem, obviously. Ballard is being built denser NOW, without any supporting infrastructure. It needs light rail yesterday, not in 22 (or 18) years. Fucking priorities.

Here is Sound Transit's formula:

Short-change Seattle projects, despite them being the most critical pieces, knowing that 1) we are so pro-transit that we will probably vote for it anyway, and 2) we will take steps to fund the in-city bits on our own, so they don't have to.

This plan worked well with the buses, where some lines were nonsensically reduced despite being efficient/profitable and packed to the gills. Seattle responded by funding its own levy to cover the budget gap.

Someone please remind me why we need Sound Transit at all ...

@18 - I doubt it. My alternative is for Seattle to go it alone and fund transit within the city on its own. We already did this last year to save some bus lines that Metro was going to cut (despite them being packed to the gills during commuting hours).

Sound Transit doesn't seem to be up to the task, and has too many constituencies to please. Some of those longer proposed suburban lines are just stupid, and are only there to get votes.
