Not enough like Twitter.

I do not care about D. Tsarnaev. They did what they did to make sure no one else was in imminent danger. He's got some nerve invoking his rights and claiming they were violated. He came here as an immigrant, lived off of social services, was educated here, became a U.S. citizen, and then committed an act of terrorism murdering innocent people, including children. Then he went to a party and hung out with his friends drinking and smoking dope. Anything he said to the FBI is irrelevant. There is enough physical evidence (including what he wrote on the wall of the boat before they caught him) to put him away. What sickens me is how much money will be spent on him.

I agree with #7. Also agree with #1. And does FBC really need to be subjected to this BS? I mean there is absolutely no value in releasing this. Shame on SPD.

Seattle (and Washington state) desperately need income tax, but instead things will just continue as is with regressive taxation and gutting of all services the poor (who pay the most in regressive taxes) until there is nothing left but rubble. But hurray Seattle is so affluent now, who will care?!?!

I have zero sympathy for you though since you refer to someone as an "old hag." You expect sympathy and turn around with a slur. You get what you give. Sucks to be you.

It's not trivial to get a smartphone. There are many, many people who cannot afford one. I live on a fixed income. I pay $25/month for a trac phone with 1000 minutes (1 minute per text). Even if I could afford the cost of the actual phone, I can't afford the data plan. Even the plans that are "only $45" after all is said and done they cost between $60 and $75/a month. People who do not understand why people can't afford smart phones live in a self-absorbed bubble. There are people struggling to pay rent, be able to eat, get to and from work, and afford things like toilet paper, electricity, etc. Please try to pull your head out of your completely self-absorbed ass. Thank you.

Okay since morally reprehensible doesn't compute, how about this - plain and simple and written in the Constitution (you know that document people who champion murder weapon rights have such a hard on for).

The Equal Protection Clause is part of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The clause, which took effect in 1868, provides that no state shall deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

I really am not all that impressed with corporations asking the governor of Arizona not to sign the bill because it will affect business in Arizona. How about don't sign the bill because it discriminates against people and discrimination is not only illegal, it's morally reprehensible!!!! JFC.

You know what? I'm just fine with that idiot who wrote on facebook that he was going to shoot up a school and murder some kids sitting on his ass in jail for a decade.

Nine years is a good run. Change is good. Kate is AWESOME. Bring on the new regime.

I am still pretty much speechless after reading the responses to this. It's seriously disturbing how hostile people are to the disabled. I am disabled. I became disabled when living in Seattle. I lived 35 years as an able bodied person so I do, absolutely and positively, know full well how the disabled are treated differently. The comments here are just the tip of the iceberg.

I left Seattle in 2007 and was diagnosed with a progressive, degenerative neuromuscular disease. I returned on vacation in 2009 and was using two canes. One time (and one time only) I attempted to use the bus, in the U-district, and every single priority seat was taken by a college student and not one of them got up. I had to stumble my way past them to make it to the first available seat I could find. I was furious. I was also relatively newly disabled and seriously depressed so I said nothing. Now, if I were able to even get on a regular bus, which I am not, I would raise holy f'in hell with able bodied a-hats sitting in that seating. GET UP AND MOVE YOUR LAZY STUPID INCONSIDERATE BUTT AND BE HAPPY YOU ARE NOT IN ANY WAY SICK OR DISABLED. Seriously? And of course the passive-aggressive plague that infects Seattle just makes situations like this so much worse.

As for ACCESS, you can't just call an ACCESS bus. You must apply for paratransit and it is a process - typically involving a long application process and being seen by a doctor (not your own doctor who is well versed in your physical limitations, but a doctor chosen by the transportation organization - in Seattle's case King County Metro).

Seriously, this is not the kind of society I want to live in - where people just believe that everyone is faking it or taking what someone else thinks is theirs. We have one planet and we all have to live together, so freaking man up and start treating each other with respect and kindness and consideration.
