Jan 21 unpaid reader commented on Should NASA Name a Telescope After a Dead Guy Who Persecuted Gay People In the 1950s?.
If they were naming a State Department building for him, it would be inappropriate. Naming a telescope after him does not seem inappropriate.
Jan 18 unpaid reader commented on An Insufferable Seahawks Championship Game LIVESLOG.
As the clock winds down in a metaphor for the sweet release of death.
Jan 6 unpaid reader commented on The Richest Man on Earth (Bill Gates) Tells the Most Famous Economist on Earth (Thomas Piketty) That He Doesn't Want to Pay More Taxes.
The Foundation will still have more money than they can spend even if Bill's taxes go up.

The idea that "I'm better at this than government" is your typical white ADHD crypto-libertarian technocratic bullshit excuse. He's carrying a US passport, he doesn't get to opt-out of government. And the government's priorities are not his priorities.
Dec 29, 2014 unpaid reader commented on Pastor Mark Driscoll's Website Seems to Be Heavily Copied from Mars Hill's Website.
In coding, plagiarism is rampant and it's called 'reuse'.
Nov 18, 2014 unpaid reader commented on Death to Self-Checkout Machines.
This is like arguing that washing machines take away low-paying laundry jobs.
Nov 18, 2014 unpaid reader commented on Guest Editorial: Don't Tell Me Olympia Can't Fund the Smaller Class Sizes Voters Just Demanded.
We're already violating our own state constitution by not funding education enough. Violating a state law regarding class sizes is even easier. So it's not about what the Legislature can afford to do, it's about what they will or won't do.

But hey, your largely useless symbolic vote makes you feel good, at least.
Nov 14, 2014 unpaid reader commented on The Worst People in the World Are Pretty Much Already Running for President.
Vote third party! Either way, a party you hate will win and you can wash your hands of the responsibility of choosing.
Nov 10, 2014 unpaid reader commented on An Insufferable Tribute to Marshawn Lynch.
@1 I got the impression their rushing game was a reaction to the weather, not a grand new strategy for the rest of the year.
Oct 31, 2014 unpaid reader commented on Mayor Ed Murray Shouts at Me About Gender Pay Equity, Calling My Reporting "Wrong" and "Unfair".
Poor Ed, can't use the mayor's office as a stepping stone to bigger and better things until he gets the press behind him.
Oct 30, 2014 unpaid reader commented on FBI Spokesperson Suggests Posing As an Associated Press Reporter Is No Different Than Posing As a Dentist.
Pretending to be a journalist over email to lure a particular suspect doesn't bother me.

Pretending to be a journalist covering a protest to collect dossier information on protesters would bother me.

So I think it's a matter of degrees, and leads me to wonder if the FBI is doing the latter as well as the former.
