Feb 24 King Rat commented on Bookstores Are Not Charities.
For once, Paul Constant is right.
Jan 14 King Rat commented on Thanks to the US Government, Amazon Is Back to Being an E-Book Monopoly Again.
So Paul Constant is in favor of me paying $14.99 instead of $9.99. What a dick.
Jan 8 King Rat commented on Amazon Openly Tries to Steal Customers from Local Independent Book Store.
Huh. I didn't know those sales "belonged" to UBS.

So what the fuck do you intend to do about it? You failed at the resolution last year, and are making the exact same resolution this year. You are going to have similar results unless you do something different

When i had a crappy book blog and realized the same thing, i added a rule of thumb that i would start a book by someone non white or non male for every book i finished by a white male.

That's probably not appropriate for The Stranger, but you could do something else. For every issue with a book review, there will be at least two reviews and one of the authors will be a woman. Or no review of a male author gets scheduled for publication until you've decided on a book by a woman o review. Or every month the stack of books considered to be reviewed will have an equal number of men and women authors. (I.e., that sets a consideration time that you are actually thinking about gender parity.) Or you hire another reviewer who has a better track record for parity than you do to balance and push you in the right direction.

What are you actually going to commit to?

Paul Constant doesn't like putting false information on Slog? The douchebag whose defense to saying Sunil Tripathy was the Boston Marathon bomber was that it was a rumor so it needed to be published? Come on.
Jul 5, 2013 King Rat commented on Tense SWAT Showdown on Capitol Hill Ruined by My Camera Phone.
A mentally ill guy dies and your lament is for your inability to get the goriest photojournalism? Seriously, fuck you and the Pulitzer you aren't getting for the story.
Jul 1, 2013 King Rat commented on Yes, There Is Sexism in Science Fiction.
The editor in question is James Frenkel. Ms. Mattheson's post was cross-posted to a number of blogs, and on most of those blogs Sigrid Ellis (one of the party hosts where the incident occurred) named him.
Jun 7, 2013 King Rat commented on What's With All Those Tech Companies Denying Knowledge of PRISM?.
Remember when you posted a bunch of supposition that Sunil Tripathy was a bomber? Yeah, your track record linking to supposition is piss-poor.
May 9, 2013 King Rat commented on Proof That Paying McDonald's Employees More Leads to Happier Employees.
So this means The Stranger will pay its interns, right?
