Aug 17 algorhythm99 commented on Why Is There a Surveillance Tower Outside CenturyLink Stadium?.
There's a big difference between a scissor lift that the cops can wave to and talk to people from, engage with the crowd, you know, act like their on our side.
But tinted windows? Probably armored? Cameras and megaphones?

Are you protecting and serving us or preparing for battle against us?

Why no resolution to force a redesign of the new station in order to dramatically de-militarize it?

The serious overcrowding of the current building is a problem for both the cops and the citizens they come in contact with. They need to build something. It should be way cheaper, there's no argument there. But why is the criticism from the councilmembers and this paper only focused on the cost and not the high-tech, militarized design, which significantly strengthens the case that the SPD is not on the citizens' side.

You guys can't even bother to get a stock photo of the right baseball stadium?

Ken Griffey Jr. was the Mariners' *centerfielder* from 1989 to 1999. There's no such thing as "the outfielder", there's three of them.
Also, he returned to the Mariners for 2009 and 2010 before retiring here.

Agreed with @10
The Ave, Roosevelt-and-65th, and Northgate stations are what's gonna really make this explode.

You could argue that opening the Husky Stadium station and not making sure they could open the Ave station with it was a very strange choice.

Shockingly disappointing, utterly unacceptable timelines. But at least this is a draft. Let the noise begin.

Love this column. One of my favorite things to read here.
Jan 11 algorhythm99 commented on Why Does Facebook Make Smart People So Ridiculously Stupid?.
What @7 said.
Social media is changing people (because everything that happens to everyone all the time changes everyone all the time), but more than changing people social media is amplifying people. Everyone has a platform. And every stupid thing any one says gets broadcast.

Homeless or not Charles people often move objects that don't fit in backpacks, satchels, or messenger bags around the city. And a HUGE problem with the post-car future that no one talks about is how exactly anyone is supposed to move stuff from place to place with public transit. At best its a miserable exercise in making everyone else on the bus hate you, and at worst its just impossible.
