Aug 18 MrBaker commented on Time Inc. Evaluates Writers on How "Beneficial" They Are to the "Advertiser Relationship".
The extends to all media.

(You're soaking in it.)
Aug 10 MrBaker commented on The Sunday Morning News.
@14, a century ago newspaper in the south would write up lists of "missing" people and outright linchings. The papers got a free or flat rate to ride the trains north where the stories would be purchased and often reprinted, even though major newspapers didn't usually go and report, and often still don't.
It was regularly reported.
Then it wasn't regularly reported.
Now we are self reporting to each other the thing that didn't actually go away.
Newspapers and trains.
Smartphones and twitter.

The question always is, now that we know, what should we do about it?
Jul 25 MrBaker commented on Lucy: Powers for Algernon.
At least Dr Manhattan had the good sense to be naked.
Jul 24 MrBaker commented on Guest Editorial: Parks Should Serve Everyone, so Vote "For" Seattle's Proposition 1.
@27, I can do that without creating a MPD, too. See how that argument works both ways?
The difference between a levy and an endless MPD is that a levy is a short term that prevents very long-term mistakes no matter how long the term of the politician.

I think this would just encourage a developer-lobbyist-politician merry-go-round (I mean, more than it already is.)
Jul 24 MrBaker commented on In Culture News: Teen Tix Wins Praise, Philip K. Dick Is Coming to TV, and Google Glass Banned from Comic-Con.
Goodnight Moon is excellent as a story and the illustrations show the room and the items in isolation in a natural story telling way.
Runaway Bunny, too.

I think I have a copy without words somewhere, and I could easily tell the story pretty much word for word from memory and the pictures, the words sound good aloud.
Jul 24 MrBaker commented on Guest Editorial: Parks Should Serve Everyone, so Vote "For" Seattle's Proposition 1.
I have already voted No to you, Mike, and Sawant, and Nick, and Jean, and Tom, and Sally, and Sally (pick which ever one you think you are), and Bruce, and the other Mike, and the guy that beat Mike.

I like democracy and this group within a group isn't it.
Jul 21 MrBaker commented on Interview with The Stranger's New Managing Editor, Kathleen Richards.
@20, weed, you forgot weed, everything offered to you has weed in it.
Jul 21 MrBaker commented on Interview with The Stranger's New Managing Editor, Kathleen Richards.
If you are still reading the comments about you then your assimilation is complete, and you can stop now.

One more thing, there isn't actually anybody named Goldy. He is somebody commenters just made up just to be assholes.
