commented on Stop Demonizing "Burger-Flippers" and Start Thinking About Solutions
"Stop pretending that business is a magnanimous God."
This is frivolous and insulting. And dehumanizing. It's amazing how a post claiming to humanize the conversation devolves quickly into dehumanizing small business owners. It makes no acknowledgement of the small business community that have been supportive of this action. It's lazy.
Jerks on the internet are nothing new. They are especially familiar to Stranger readers. Hopes diminish daily for the writers at this paper to rise above.
commented on Why Were Seattle Police Far More Restrained During This Year's May Day?
Numerous reports claim that protestors smashed windows on May Day, 2013, from the Huffington Post to the Seattle Times and everyone in between. Now, whether those demonstrators/protestors defined themselves as "members" of a march or protest or as outside of those efforts is a straw man argument. Windows were smashed by people involved in marching on Pine Street on that day. That is not up for debate.
