commented on The Guide to Cheap Eats on a College Student's Budget
Aladdin's takes plastic and has for a while now. They prefer cash and if you have cash and in your wallet and hand them a card they will point at the cash, but they'll take plastic. Also; damn tasty. Go there often.

I'm confused. In an earlier article you said
One version of the drug specially designed to be administered by someone without medical training "soared from $575 to $3,750 per two-dose package in just two years."
How is Mr. Fernandez getting them for $60 and can he tell the SPD where to buy it?
commented on Anticipating New Regulations, Airbnb Releases Seattle Impact Report
My sister in law signed a lease for her place and she and her long term girlfriend promptly broke up. Bummer all around as far as that is concerned. She is now Airbnb-ing the additional room in the place that she was on the hook for with no prayer of being able to afford (her turnover is quite low, I think the current renter is there for 3 months).

commented on Cliff Mass Is Wrong About the Carbon Tax and Seattle's Liberals
Charles, I know that you like to troll so I can never decide when you're doing so or just being obstinate. The quote you provide doesn't blame liberals for Seattle's public transportation backwardness, it points to said backwardness and says "WTF?! You should be doing better." I assume you agree. I sure as shit do.

commented on Good-Bye, Seattle
I was first born here in 1980 and soon found myself in the warm embrace of 19 and 20 year old artist parents. After 17 years of growing up broke as fuck I went to school for an engineering degree. Now I've got a home in a city I still love and a job that occasionaly makes me want to gouge out my eyes and alost certianly leads me to damage my liver with regularity.
Everything has a price. Hopefully the path we take has a price tag we can manage. Best of luck to those of you getting royally fucked by the Seattle economy. It can be real shitty out there.
