Not enough like Twitter.

@26 says "This occurred on a train, a public conveyance, not in a bar."

Uh, it's a wine tour. They're serving wine. The whole point is to drink wine and have fun. But apparently some of the white folks thought the black women were having too much fun.

@16: Really? I would say that if passengers are pepper-spraying and slashing each other with razors that's a reasonable time to call in the police.

It was a wine tour, for God's sake. You telling me that groups of white women don't get loud and raucous when they've had a few glasses of wine? But nobody's going to complain about them, just those uppity black women. I'm guessing those women looked around and said, "Why are we being singled out?"

@18: Bank of America didn't fire her. In fact they offered to transfer her because she was so traumatized, but she declined. BofA doesn plenty of bad shit; no need to make shit up.

@72: The OP wasn't necessarily looking for friends. He just doesn't want to be stereotyped as an asshole brogrammer just because he got a good job that happens to be in technology (like, oh, hundreds of thousands of other people around here).

The immaturity of the people posting here -- "You're ruining my cool city with your uncoolness!" -- is breathtaking.

Pretty amusing to read the comments from those who insist THEY were the hip people who discovered Seattle when it was cool, before all the boring people came along.

If you came here within the past 25 years you should look at your own entitled self before trying to blame the latest batch of newcomers.

@1: Not sure what distinction you're trying to make with your first point: That's exactly what the city is trying to do, if you read the story.
Aug 11 bigyaz commented on This Seattle Times Op-Ed Got Everything Wrong About Sex Work.
@8: It was written by a bunch of politicians, not the Times. Unlike the Stranger, the Times has been known to open its pages to people with a variety of opinions.
Aug 11 bigyaz commented on Op-Ed: This Seattle Times Editorial Got Everything Wrong About Sex Work.
That Seattle Times piece is NOT an editorial, as anyone editing for the Stranger should know. It's an opinion piece signed by members of the public. Perhaps some Stranger editor could fix that.

@15: It would be helpful if you posted ALL of your made-up bullshit rules on all the Link trains. Because we certainly want to discourage people from using public transportation. Thank you.
