commented on The Seattle Times Paywall Is for Suckers
@3 You're also saying that if it's not print, it's not valid. The PI is STILL THERE, and KOMO's online reporting has been pretty great lately. And it's WORSE when it's not editorials, because their bias still shines through in their non-editorial pieces, only with less honesty. Good riddance, free Seattle Times.

It's not just lady-and-death-biz, either! I went to college in Whatcom County, where St. Joseph's was the only option. I had a friend that, long story short (for privacy reasons), ended up in inpatient rehab when he probably didn't belong there. It was a heavily religious program, he was an atheist, and he had to choose between pretending to accept God and staying in (public) college. Pretty sure the ACLU has that on file somewhere. Shit is DANGEROUS.
Also, speaking of death: in my PUBLIC COLLEGE HEALTH CLASS, my teacher, citing St Joseph's, said that I-1000 would be overturned because of all the Catholic hospitals. Like it was a good thing. Ugh.
