@13 &. @ 14 - I am a resident if Chicago. I know how Divvy works. I myself have used Divvy. I remember the confusion here when they first became available. Many people were charged when they thought they shouldn't be, because of poorly-used wording. The $7 Divvy charge allows, for a $24-hour period, the ability to use a bike. It doesn't allow 24-use of that bike. If it's written "24-hour bike rental - $7," the casual user will not realize there are charges after the first half- hour.
This happened in Chicago. It will hapoen in Seattle. My point is that the language used by Slog writers should be clear to avoid as much confusion as possible.

If savvy, one can pick up a bike, ride for a half-hour, check it in at another kiosk, then check it out again and avoid paying for time used. This is not technically the pay-schedule, but a way around it. It requires a lot of kiosks in a lot of locations.

Are you sure about the pricing? I'm guessing the prices you give are to essentially get a 1-day, 3-day, etc membership, and rental prices are on top of that. In Chicago. It's $7 for a 1--day membership. Then, the first half-hour is free, and then you pay then based on the amount of time you have the bike "checked out."

In truth, he was in a commercial that aired during the Super Bowl. It was a clip for a movie in which he plays Fury (Captain America, I believe). I don't know if that's what the reporter was referring to, but Jackson was in a SuperBowl commercial.

"But if Sawant can't sit on human rights or budgetary committees, she may be unable to introduce a wage ordinance within two years."

Why not? Any Councilmember can introduce any legislation, even if it goes to a committee on which he/she does not sit. Would it be wise? Without support from at least one member of that committee, probably not. It would be modified in committee. It could even die in committee. But none of this prevents it from being introduced.

8 beat me to it. According to his Facebook page, this photo is from just prior to his swearing in, in 2009.

@12 - you're living in a fantasy world.

Goldy - seriously? This is just stupid. It wasn't worth the time to write.

@4 - after my parents divorced, one parent lived in Seattle and the other in Mountlake Terrace. Tell me - could I have registered to attend school in either district? Don't be an ass.
Oct 8, 2013 TJ commented on Establishment Dems Hate Mike McGinn Because He Isn't an Establishment Democratic.
But that wouldn't explain why the majority of Seattle voters equally dislike McGinn. Perhaps he's just not good. Could that be the reason? Bear in mind the adage: "When you hear hooves, think horses." Do you know what that is? You hear hooves, it could be a zebra. It could be any number of animals, but based on where you live (the US) and a major metropolitan area, it's more than likely going to be horses. To put it another way: The simplest explanation is the likeliest.
