But it appears that location closed not for lack of business, but because the building is being torn down—the only circumstance in which I've ever observed a McDonalds shuttering. I'd expect it to reopen nearby unless there's some sort of neighborhood opposition.

Even in SFs gentrification-embattled Mission district, the 24th and Mission st McDonald's is easily the neighborhoods busiest restaurant hosting the most diverse clientele.
Mar 27 Dougsf commented on Police Reports Illustrated: Woman Feels Barred In.
A few years ago at a friend of mines bar a woman fell asleep on the ground under a back bench. She woke up early in the morning freaked out she can't escape and called 911. The bar owner arrived just in time to see the fire department breaking the door down to let the woman out.

Honestly, if you lock yourself into someone else's business, waiting for the opening crew the next day is a fair punishment.

@6 Access to affordable birth control has been a central issue in the health care debate, which is the topic here. Abortion has been excluded from federal health care funding since 1976.

Re: Denied entry to US for smoking weed.

It will be interesting to see this issue wind its way through the courts, but I'm having a hard time imaging when given the precarious situation any potential plaintiff will be in. What is the threshold here for denial of entry—can border agents consider smoking weed a crime even though the user, in this case, hasn't been charged with anything?

Glad the legislation is flailing, but depressingly it doesn't appear to be held up by Republican's out of concern for their constituents, it's the 25 votes of the House Freedom Caucus members he can't get out are concerned the bill is still too socialist (my words, not theirs).

@13 - I used to be more like that. I gotta get back on that horse, it really is the best way to see a place.
Mar 17 Dougsf commented on To the Tourists Who Hate Visiting Seattle: You’re Doing It Wrong.
@1 - Maybe, but while everyday stuff in Seattle isn't crazy for a city its size (I still trip at how much cheaper your grocery stores are), hotel prices are high (6th most expensive in the country despite being only our 15th ranked metro area by size).

But really I wouldn't feel too bad about not ranking highly on a metric that favors Las Vegas. Dead last would have been a better compliment.

@2 - What I was thinking too.

Also, I don't know if this guy lives in a town of 12 people, but it sounds like everyone in his world needs to do some branching out.
