Oct 12 lone locust commented on Evicted Ballard Resident Who Has Autism Stares Down Homelessness.
I really wish the Stranger would cease the use of quotations around hoarding in this article, implying that the landlord was just looking for an excuse or something. The situation is unfortunate and I hope they can find him housing, but the reality is he really was evicted for hoarding, after his residence FAILED a mandatory section 8 housing inspection due to the hoard.

This kind of political art isn't exactly something new...
Aug 17 lone locust commented on "The Victorians" From Port Townsend Refused Entry From B.C.'s Butchart Gardens For Being Themselves.
@14 I noted this as well. It wasn't on their website previous to the news stories starting. In a downloadable "Garden Etiquette" form (produced before this) costumes are mentioned, but nothing about "Period Dress". I wonder how the gardens would respond to members of any number of Anabaptist sects....

@7 I don't really see the point in engaging bigots, but here goes. Drug use and homelessness can be linked, yes, but it's very much a chicken and egg question, while there are those who become homeless as a result of drug use, there are more who turn to drug use out of despair related to homelessness. This is why housing first works. Your comments show both a lack of compassion as well as ignorance.

Great food for thought article. I was also an unapologetic tomboy and nerd until high school, when I did finally embrace more femininity, but mostly through Vampire the Gathering. Recently in the storm of resurgent feminism (which I do agree with for the most part) I've come to realize how much my time as "one of the guys" has colored my outlook to what many women experience as harassment (ie, when I'm walking down the street and a guy asks for a smile, I've never experienced that as harassment, I just always flash a grin and a thumbs up and go about my day). It's been a contemplative time recently.

I forwarded this to my awesome MIL who's a glass artist and has absolutely been affected already by the closures in Oregon, hopefully she can chat with you
Mar 29 lone locust commented on Why Is Hillary Clinton Entitled to Any Washington Superdelegates At All?.
For everyone complaining that the caucus excludes those who work on weekends: "However, those who are unable to attend due to religious observance, military service, disability, illness or work schedule may submit a“surrogate affidavit” form prior to the Precinct Caucus." You mail it in and get counted...

Re: The answer. I guess this is my commentary, when I saw the age links, my first thought was, I bet they send all the 30+ to Hillary...and sure enough. Why not use a random number generator to send folks to either of the pages? As a person in my 30s I know why I'm supposed to like Hillary (all the reasons in your endorsement frankly), so all I was seeing was the echo chamber of those familiar arguments. It seems like getting a random answer (and being able to play again, once it had my IP it always diverts to Hillary) might actually be more effective at getting folks to look at both sides.
