Feb 23 Mr John commented on Police Chief Misled Mayor and Council on Misconduct Decision.
I believe in the midst of explaining why he changed Marion's punishment, Murray mentions that he reviewed Marion's file and noted that he has no previous complaints against him. A good question to ask would be "Will future command officers also find that Marion has had no complaints against him after this process?"
Feb 19 Mr John commented on Flat Revenue Forecast Drives Home Fact That Washington State Cannot Fund K-12 Mandate Without New Taxes.
How would the WA St. Supreme Court enforce the mandate if the legislature does nothing?
Feb 17 Mr John commented on Is Bertha Still Stuck?.

I'd like to be the first call our state legislators to pass a "Turn away the Kansans" law.
Feb 12 Mr John commented on Why Won't the State Tell Us How Far Behind the Tunnel Is?.
I believe the talk of warrantying the machine is a bit of a red herring. The manufacturer may technically be on the hook for the machine but the state is undoubtedly incurring costs related to the work stoppage that Hitachi-Zosen will not cover.

It's like having your car break down on the way to your wedding. Ford will happily replace the water pump that broke, but the $20,000 of venue, catering and photography fees you didn't get the benefit of are your own problem.
Feb 4 Mr John commented on Scotland Becomes 19th Country to Legalize Marriage Equality.
I guess Scotland is a province of the UK. Carry on.
Feb 4 Mr John commented on Scotland Becomes 19th Country to Legalize Marriage Equality.
Is the US the only country where marriage equality is not an all-or-nothing thing? The fact that we leave it up to individual provinces? Does any where else have that?

Can you imagine all of the buildings of downtown rising straight out of the sound?
Jan 3 Mr John commented on The Internet Is a Race and You Won!.
Please have this guy on the podcast.
