Apr 4 unpaid reader commented on Letter to the Editor: The Real Story Behind the MAGA Hat-Wearing Star of a Police Reports Illustrated.
America has never really been reasonable. We've been in a constant state of civil war since the founding.

What they see as reasonableness is just white people debating the finer points of privilege.
Apr 4 unpaid reader commented on Mayor Ed Murray Thinks Democrats Are Too Preoccupied with "Purity Tests".
Murray has always been a very middle-of-the-road choice for Seattle; it's good for him to hear the branch creak a little.

Yes, Donald Trump is like Bill Clinton without the charm or statesmanship. Congratulations Republicans. You have become the very monster you were trying to destroy.

That should prevent any possibility of astroturfing.

Jun 23, 2016 unpaid reader commented on Mayor Involves FBI in Hunt for Source in Stranger Police Union Story.
It's only news if someone doesn't want you know. Otherwise it's just PR. The Stranger broke a news story the way they're supposed to - get sources - and while the Mayor can yell at the source all he wants, yelling at the paper is counterproductive and reveals a fundamental weakness.
