Yeah, it's a copy of that.

Nice catch, @4. The primary animus of conservatives is the destruction of civil society.

I believe the Churchill quote is " You can always count on the Americans to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else."

Just on the off hand chance you're still looking at this thread, Ms. Holcomb, please don't run against one of the two best voices for working class seattlites currently on the council.
I think you would be a great addition to the council.
I value the work you've accomplished.
I also value the work that Ms. Sawant has accomplished, and the coalitions she built to accomplish those goals.
Don't be a divisive force in Seattle politics. Don't throw away all your political capital on a quixotic quest to destroy what has been accomplished.
There are good targets for you on the council. Run at large against the horrible, vacuous and unaccomplished Sally Clark.
Move to the 5th and run. It's wide open. You would probably be a shoe-in. If you were running in the 5th I would vote for you. Heck, I might even doorbell for you.
But if you run in the 3rd, I will do everything I can to assure your defeat.

I would vote for Ms. Holcomb if she ran in the 5th. If she runs in the 3rd, I'll do everything I can to defeat her.

@33- also, while I was contemplating my SLOG nom de guerre, the Dead Kennedy's song "holiday in Cambodia" came on.

@33- back in the Pleistocene era, when The Stranger first required registration for commenting, I sort of felt it imperative to pick the snarkiest screen name I could think of. It was after all, SLOG, the wild west of the interwebz. Years later I wish I had chosen something else, but too late. I'm Pol Pot now. C'est la vie.

Vaguely related tangential anecdote:
A new computer program was recently introduced at my work. There was the usual brief corporate training, and off we went to use the new system. People quickly became frustrated because they couldn't get the program to perform the actions it was designed for reliably. IT came in to see how we were using the interface. It quickly became apparent that we were all following an intuitive path that skipped some step. Some times it worked, sometimes it didn't. I looked at the IT guy and said, "so what's happening is everyone is trying to "apple" it, but its Microsoft?
He thought for a moment and said, "that's actually a pretty good analogy."

@38- sometimes it's hard to remember that you were recently a decent seeming person running an excellent, kick ass bookstore.
What happened?
Jul 17 Pol Pot commented on Hobby Lobby Is Expanding to Washington in a Big Way.
@18- you're only half way there. After you fill up the cart, go through the cash register, then, after its all rung up and the cashier says, "$437.54, please", politely announce you would never spend a penny in a store that exists solely to subjugate women to a second class status in society and calmly walk away.
Imagine if that happened 12-15 times a day in the new store on Aurora. Forever.
