Apr 25 Catherwood commented on Governor Signs Bill Overhauling Washington's Medical Marijuana System.
I'd have more sympathy for the Medical Marijuana folks if the industry had made even a teensy effort to reform some of the abuses that go on. For every patient who legitimately needs medical pot, there have to be a dozen who are just recreational users who get occasional headaches or something - otherwise, given the unbelievable number of dispensaries, we'd have to believe that there are a hundred thousand people in Seattle who need it. I believe a few thousand, but the rest is just bullshit, and the dispensaries rely on the bullshit customers, knowing damn well it's bullshit. How many don't check for prescriptions? (Many.) Come on: if you don't police yourself, you have to expect crackdowns like this.

I feel sorry for the minority of dispensary customers who have legitimate needs for it: they're screwed because of a fatal combination of greed and "law and order" authoritarianism. A pox on both houses.

I teach at Ingraham, and this is almost literally around the corner. I WILL get some takeout from there for lunch. Soon. Thanks for the tip!

Umm... okay, so now is @22 some kind of meta-sarcasm? I'm confused.

It's the pants. They can't help it.
Jan 24 Catherwood commented on Song One: A Contemplative, Heart-on-Its-Sleeve Affair.
I will say if this is the same Johnny Flynn who records folk-ish music (like the album "Alarum"), he surely must be doing his own singing in the film, yeah? If so, I'd go see it just for that.

@16, seriously, man, you are DESPERATE for some bongo accompaniment: "We major on the minor". That's some dope shit, my brother.

And here's a hint in case you're not the troll you appear to be: just swap in the word "poor" for the word "black" in basically everything you write, and you'll be a lot closer to the real issue. But you don't want to deal with that, of course. Sorry you couldn't make it to your parent-teacher conference, my man, but I'm even sorrier for the teacher who had to work on a day off.

@8 actually, for me the ghillie suits made me go, "Hmm." WTH was that about?
Jan 19 Catherwood commented on BREAKING: #BlackLivesMatter Protesters Blocking Highway 99.
@29: It wasn't. He's making shit up to make some rhetorical point that makes no sense. Picture his remarks with a rhythm-less (how else?) bongo accompaniment to get the actual uselessness.

@2: Whichever commanded the biggest Private Parts.
