Stuff white people like. Get a load of the station map: the hill and the U. Ballard next. Then QA, Magnolia. Bikeshare will come to Ranier and Columbia right about the time hell freezes over.

Anyone notice the total erasure of bi people from this post? Dan Savage is famous for coining terms like Santorum and DTMFA and "chocolate chip cookie". The Savagism he's expressing here, decoded, is "I have a collection of bi people in my freezer and you should too!"

Dan Savage needs to cut the charade and just file papers to have his name changed to Kill All Bis Savage.

Belgium did the same thing with 8-tracks in '73.

If they believed any of their own rhetoric, they'd let Seattle be a cautionary tale for the rest of the world, scotching any other minimum wage increases lest they become smoking crater of economic stagnation like Seattle.

But they know Seattle will go on quite well after $15/hour becomes the norm, and then every other city will want to follow. That's what they fear. It's actually the same fear the rich have of health care reform: they know it works.

The Ed Murray administration, ladies and gentlemen. Our new, professionalized, fully funded, adult-supervised city executive. Way better than McGinn and his office full of underpaid interns who didn't know how to make the machinery of governemnt work, am I right?

Oh thank God. When I first heard of this title I pictured it looking creepy. Dodged a bullet there.

I love how they managed to combine masterful book design with everyone seeming so calm and at ease, none of that stiff, cult-like intensity and crazy eyed stares you'd have thought a kids gun book might have.

Fuck you, ghouls. You are not a superior being to everyone who ever had a bad break. You're just luckier. So far. I can tell from here, just by your arrogant lack of self-awareness, that you've taken at least as many "stupid" risks as anyone who ever got killed doing something that you think makes them unfit to live.

Some day you'll get yours and you won't have to eat a bite of crow because you always posted your snotty remarks anonymously like the fucking coward you are.

Rest in peace. Respect.

When an impartial observer says "I think the Mets are going to lose this game", they're not saying the Mets are "oppressed victims." They're just saying, relative to the team that's running circles around them, they suck balls. They're blowing it. Because they're suckng so badly. It doesn't even mean you have any particular love for the team that's kicking the Mets' ass. It's just observing a fact about a thing.

I'm not saying Paul Constant isn't barking mad on the subject of Amazon. He is. He's like that guy Khan at the end of that movie when he blew up that thing and killed Spock? Or whatever? He is an Amazon hater, no doubt. But people besides Paul have also noted that Amazon is acting like the Mets here, and Amazon is supposed to know what they're doing. They're supposed to be bringing their A game.

Since Washington already has the highest minimum wage in the nation, your theory ought to hold compared to other states. We ought to have a high unemployment rate than lower wage states, since various retirees and other people of leisure will push young, low-skill workers into unemployment. Any evidence of that? At all?

(Spoiler alert: No. Washington has a very low unemployment rate. A high minimum wage has not done any of the things predicted by whatever free market theory spews out these scenarios.)

Arbitrary cutouts were the concession that business demanded from Murray to get this thing to pass. Now they're back arguing that arbitrary cutouts are arbitrary. No shit?

Solution? The original $15/hr across the board minimum wage, no exceptions. Put the charter amendment to a vote in 2016. Treat all businesses equally. Because all workers should be treated equally.
