dan ive trolled you via email a half dozen times over the years and you've told me to fuck off several times (in as many words). the sad thing is, i bet we agree with each other about 99% of things, i just hate how you have always felt like a bully to me. two wrongs not making a right and such.

i've attacked you to friends for never writing anything significant in the stranger (which was true the last time i looked through everything you had written for the stranger, not slog, several years ago), yet i knew from your near universal staff benevolence that you were probably a rock star employee.

all of this is to say i think this piece is slowly turning my thoughts around on you. idk if you care, but this is me telling you that.

i want to specifically stress my negative feelings towards you has nothing to do with homosexuality. although i am the most boring cis white male on the (overpriced) block, my first roommate and then-best friend is gay, blah blah blah.

Jul 28, 2015 Swearengen commented on Seattle Police Officer Cynthia Whitlatch Should Be Fired, Says Misconduct Investigator.
""There is no evidence that he [Wingate] didn't swing the golf club at her at 11th and Pike," Smith said." -- this guy is a hugely important SPD officer and he says inane shit like that? I hope the SPD doesn't wonder why they have an image problem.

Keith and Donna left the band in 1979, and the Dead didn't play Dark Star from 1981-1989, when it made a triumphant return at the Hampton Coliseum.
