May 18 theophrastus commented on The Morning News: White House Staffers Joke About Impeachment Behind Trump's Back, Chris Cornell and Roger Ailes Are Dead.
We could've used a little more journalistic finesse in separating the death notice of Chris Cornell and Roger Ailes. i dunno, something more akin to: Chris Cornell has joined the jam session eternal, (a few column inches of separation then), Satan accepts Ailes boarding pass ..?

Here's a basic question it would be grand to see TheStranger reporters investigate: when we hear of members of the senate calling for a special prosecutor (obviously only Democrats) why aren't we hearing the names Cantwell and Murray?
May 8 theophrastus commented on Bob Hasegawa Is Running for Mayor.
Hasegawa is a nice solid left leaner - but he's a bit hung-up on the notion of the city establishing a bank. This has been tried a couple of times by cities and it never works out well. The business of banking, even just sustaining a bank, is as essentially as disparate as a real estate developer thinking they understand politics.

Is it true that there is an allegation that the shirtless man is alleged to be none other than... Lincoln Beauregard, (allegedly)?
Feb 6 theophrastus commented on Is Your Power Out? That Makes 7000+ of Us in the Seattle Area.
Power outages on the increase? Which councilperson is the head of city-light? oh... well she never was much for such local tedious city work, was she?

So anything from Fox News is scored as likely (p~0.87) fake news?

The Stranger is now slowly phazing out commenting? Is it going all facebook n' tweet? Of the few recent postings i was interested in commenting on there's no longer an option to do so. [instert editorial comic of The Stranger and The Seattle Times racing rocket sleds into the Duwamish]
