5:48 PM yesterday Clara T commented on Five Dead in Shooting at Skagit County Mall, Police Still Searching for Shooter.
This fucking sucks. What's worse is that basically now we collectively shrug and move on.

You'd also think a modern mall would have high-res security cameras. Even the ones you get at Costco 8 for $450 bucks are far better than the shite cams at that mall

Sep 23 Clara T commented on Arrest Warrant and Manslaughter Charges Issued for Police Killer of Terence Crutcher.
so this shooting follows a very common pattern - a person refuses to comply with police and police are worried the person has a weapon. Some effort at non-lethal physical control is applied with apparent success but in the aftermath a cop not able to handle the adrenaline pulls their trigger. The cop claims that the person shot was still moving in a way that suggested going for a weapon, and the police department and union defend that officer with vigor.

Oh wait, except that last part didn't happen - this department immediately threw this officer under the bus. Hmmmmm, I wonder what's different, has the attitude of police departments changed overnight? Or maaaybe it's something about this officer .. cough, cough, vagina, cough ...

I say we remove all traffic regulation and let the invisible scythe of the market solve the problem.
Aug 12 Clara T commented on ST3 Supporters to Reuven Carlyle: We Can Fund Education and Transit.
Carlyle is a rational politician, but you don't include his specific defense of his stance. I don't know what that is, but Reuven's never been one to lunge without working things through. In fact mostly you just reprint the most polemic sound bites from opposing Twitter. Nice "journalism."
Aug 4 Clara T commented on Savage Love.
Jesus Christ who gives a magical flying horse fuck about the semantics of unicorn? Somewhere a 9 yesr old girl with rainbow stickers all over her bedroom is going nuh uh YOU'RE using unicorn wrong. Language is squishy. Your stalky commitment dragging up Savage's years old past uses though is solidly creepy.

Meh, you know what they say, there's 10,000 in every crowd ...
Aug 2 Clara T commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Just Say No.
Sounds like a dangerous way to become unconscious. How about instead he leaps out of a windowless van and reads to you from Charles Mudede on brutalist architecture?

I kid, Charles is awesome :)

Jesus fucking Christ what part of "prices haven't gone up either" were you all whacking it too hard to notice?

Disappointed a Kardashian wasn't available, but I suppose if we need to go with professional Kaine gets her done.

@11 well I ate an octopus and now, along with typing this, I'm simultaneously flipping pancakes, juggling, walking like and Egyptian and beating off. Coincidence? I think not.
