commented on Mark Driscoll Resigns from Mars Hill Church
I'd be very interested to know what's going to happen with the Trust and whether he'll still have control/access/ownership of it. It seems unlikely that he's leaving without all his cash and prizes.
commented on Will "Cisgender" Survive?
It is such a an ugly word and the pronunciation is unpleasant. Personally it ranks with moist to me, not because of any meaning but just the fact that a less unpleasant term could surely be found. Also it took me forever to figure out how to pronounce so it fails in a spelling context too.
commented on The Kind of Paper Grocery Bag Safeway Offers Black People Is Not the Same as the Kind it Offers White People?
The Rainier Safeway has a huge parking lot and is far from the street, the Capitol Hill Safeway is in the middle of a very urban street that has much more foot traffic. The handle-less bags have generally been the default at stores that are trafficked by people driving cars because they are cheaper and it doesn't much matter. At a store where the percentage of people walking is likely to be higher it is probably seen as worth the extra cost to keep people happier and to stop complaints.
commented on Jim Pugel's Gracious Farewell to the SPD
Is it just me or is everything Bailey says, or releases to the press just cringe inducing. It's so obviously NOT genuine and dripping with guile that I find it hard take seriously.
