commented on All Six Branches of Bill the Butcher Are Suddenly Closed
BB Ranch absolutely carries fresh meat. The cases are mostly stocked with dry aged meats, cured meats and pre-rubbed meats.
That being said they also stock fresh meats and I have bought pork roasts and chops, ground beef, tri-tip steak and other fresh meats and have never been disappointed with the products.
To @15's point the owner, Bill, can be a bit standoffish but if you are friendly and express an interest in the products he warms up quickly.

Good lord this article is bullshit.
The guy was suspected of robbing a bank and flipping a car during his getaway. He charged the police with a deadly weapon after allegedly holding up a bank with what looked like a real gun. Should the police officer allowed him to run off with a deadly weapon? Should he have waited for him to break into a house and take a family hostage or carjack someone?
He wasn't simply walking down the street or mouthing off. He was armed, dangerous and refused police orders to drop the weapon. You do that and you are likely to get shot.

commented on Sally J. Clark to Gay Russian Teenagers: Drop Dead
"So here we are: there's something the lesbian president of the Seattle City Council can do that might prevent this from happening to someone else..."
Criticize Sally Clark's motives if you like but don't kid yourself into thinking that the Seattle City Council's passing a resolution decrying the violence in Russia would do ANYTHING to stop the violence.
Personally I think it appropriate for the council to pass resolution in solidarity with the LGBT community in Russia but I am not so delusional to think it is anything more than moral support, which has value, but in the end won't change anything.

@ 26 Reading comprehension has never been a strength on SLOG. You carry on that tradition in grand fashion.
Again, my original point was and is the gay community has chosen Russian abuses of LGBT people for outrage and abuses of LGBT people in less developed counties for mild anger. Unless you can point me to evidence of widespread internet angst that turned into multiple protests against Uganda and Jamaica then I shall consider my point made and say goodnight, SLOG. I said goodnight!
