@Fnarf is spot on.

Politics aren't like a story book, imagining unicorns and flinging around terms like "corporatist" doesn't change that unicorns don't exist and Republicans do. In great numbers, regretfully. It's going to take quite a while to change that.

You mean I shouldn't take that contracting gig out in Redmond?

I used to really like the chorizo tacos with peanut arbol salsa at the Capitol Hill location. Then they took them off the menu. I had to reinvent the recipe myself (pretty easy really).

Strangely familiar...

@2: No. Capitol Hill gets conveyor belts, and it suits there very well. Capitol Hill is pretty much Bellevue these days. I miss Marketime.

Okay, I would prefer south of the Ship Canal, and if the only way that can work is Capitol Hill, maybe... Best would be a beat up old building in the ID.

@46 UW does still carry the license though right? They do have a project to build a broadcast palace for "John in the Morning" and cordon off fomerly public space in Seattle Center, just like what was done for Chihuly...
Jun 6 Aaron commented on Almost 20 Years After Calvin and Hobbes, Is Bill Watterson Secretly Drawing Another Comic Strip?.
@13: Wait a second, you're telling us that Watterson didn't do those truck-logo-pissing stickers? Next you're going to tell us that he didn't have anything to do with the Grateful Dead dancing t-shirts either!

@9: I gotta say that web site isn't doing you any favors. I mean, whining about ACA, counting costs like payroll taxes as employee compensation, and "depending on girth" with respect to employee meals? Jesus. Way to make me think you represent a bunch of assholes. I happen to be sympathetic to the arguments made on your behalf, that tipping is a part of compensation, but you lose me with that asinine web page.
Apr 16 Aaron commented on Meanwhile, On the Minimum Wage Committee....
I think everyone agrees that people making $9.32/hr should get to $15, but does that have to mean that people making $25 or better should also get a $5 bump?
