Honestly, at this point I think we all need to be focusing our efforts on speeding up light rail development to all corners of the city. With housing prices going sky high in the city's core (thanks to Amazon and other tech employers) and a lack of parking associated with this new development, it will become more and more important that people can easily commute via mass transit into the city from the cheap(er) housing in outlying areas.

We can't stop now... BECAUSE SUNK COST FALLACY!!!
Oct 7, 2015 UNPAID COMMENTER commented on Being a Furry Can Change Your Life.
I gotta say- even though furries have never been my cup of tea, I was pleasantly surprised to see you take a rather honest and open minded approach to exploring the topic, rather than staying at arms length with a cynical and condescending tone like one would expect from the Stranger's staff writers. Well done.
Jul 1, 2015 UNPAID COMMENTER commented on Ramiro's Place Apartments Offers Affordable Housing Option on Capitol Hill.
I'm honestly curious whether Domonic Holden was being paid by developers to shill the microapartment developer's agenda, or if he was just a clueless hack who slurped up their bullshit while they laughed at his naiveté behind his back.
Jul 1, 2015 UNPAID COMMENTER commented on Ramiro's Place Apartments Offers Affordable Housing Option on Capitol Hill.
Per Domonic's original article on Apodments:

The tenants would each have a private bathroom and kitchenette, with a sink and microwave, but they would share one full kitchen for every eight residents. The rent would be cheap—starting at $500 a month


Well that worked out exactly as planned. :/

As a ten year gay Capitol Hill resident who is about to be pushed out of my long time apartment by shitty micro-apartments with no parking, I can say I don't give a rat's ass that he's only been here 4.5 years. He's doing a hell of a lot more to give voice to the people & businesses being displaced than many of the lifers who have chosen to ignore the problem and bury their heads in the sand.

@28 Amongst young gays with daddy issues, there will always be a demand for 'daddy' type guys (even if they're closet cases).

Wait- did he seriously just call someone a "geezer that looks like the penguin from batman returns" in a paragraph deriding name calling..? Does he not grasp the irony??

No bitch, we don't hate you for being a twink- we hate you for being a self-important, tone-deaf drama queen. I for one can't wait for the day that you fully transition into 'Twank', then 'Twunk', and finally 'Troll'... at which point you'll no doubt long for the days when people actually found you attractive and gave a shit about you at the bar.
Jan 26, 2015 UNPAID COMMENTER commented on Should Starbucks Apologize to Capitol Hill?.
I can't fault Starbucks too much. As others have already said, gentrification of Capitol Hill started years ago and Starbucks is merely jumping on the bandwagon. It also doesn't hurt that I get a chuckle every morning when I drive by the Roastery and see the full-time security guard pacing out front, hired out of fear that disgruntled poors will harm their heinous 20 million dollar display of wealth.

@39 I can't imagine why the WSDOT would try to avoid blaming the pipe... except for the glaring fact that they're responsible for placing the pipe there in the first place.
