What's the nouveau proverb I'm looking for here? The wind isn't at our backs.

Can this be bent into an argument for an income tax on the rich? Poor people without cars certainly aren't pushing for this government waste, why do they disproportionately pay for it?

Walton sisters should step up, they're the ones selling all that stuff coming in on the docks anyway.

This explains a lot of rich white girl behavior.

This is how I feel about tattoos.

@14 telling it like it is.

I think the solution is a free improved jail. The SPD scoop homeless up from Gas Works Park, Northacres Park, etc. and instead of a costly legal circus, the police deposit suspect vagrants in Hobo Park -- a new aPodment like structure in an uncomfortable area of SODO.

Don't like modern Seattle hobo jail? Hit the Greyhound or jump a train. This has happened before.

iTunes Match ($25 a year) solves problems with 10,000+ song music collections. Your iPhone only needs to devote a small cache of space to music, because it all fits in the cloud and streams/downloads on demand. Beware roadtrips, but it all works fine downtown.

And when iTunes inevitably crashes and corrupts the library file and/or eats half your music, it really is "click-click-Download-wait" and the problem solves itself. Also when you import a new song the process to get it then synced to your phone is much, much faster. I don't know why iTunes Match is faster than a USB cable, but it is.

I'm not mad at SPD on this one. I can't get too excited over a paperwork problem.

Body cameras are what solve problems on the street. How about a package deal with every new squad car?

This is a great topic to be fatalistic about.

Saved the best for last, glad your camera was recovered!

@1 is an idiot. Some parents are abusive and take advantage of their children, treating them like slave property.

Now, should we as a society do something about that? I think so, the kids tend to grow into adults one day.

It's the best when someone popular in showbiz has an everyman problem.
