There is actually a decent chance that the driver was putting himself through hell by constantly looking over his shoulder in a sweat-soaked panic every time he heard a noise, positive it was the cops showing up to arrest him for the hit and run,and is now off scot-free after reading this in the Stranger.

Even though I don't agree with McGinn on everything (and some things I really disagree with him on), I bit the bullet and cast my vote for him. I'm not super upset he lost though. The Stranger is a lot more fun to read when the writers don't live up the mayor's ass.

Thanks for posting this. As I understand it, the EPA proposal has four types of action:
1) Dredging the contaminated waste out
2) Covering it with sand and gravel caps
3) Enhanced monitoring
4) Doing nothing
Many people who I respect have made the case that removing more of the contaminated waste is the most certain and permanent solution. The other three actions don't do much to solve the problem. Even capping which sounds OK to a degree is an uncertain and temporary fix.

I just paid a dollar last night to watch a kids program that my son likes. He was super happy and I considered it a dollar well spent.

This is the result of the type of "work" folks like Ellen Taft and Dominic Holden are so fond of. I'm guessing that their response to this would probably be something between "Can't make an omlette without breaking a few eggs" and "Good riddance. One more pitbull that won't scare the crap out of me".
