RAGE!!! I live 3 blocks from Waid's, what "shootings"? What "fights"? The sirens that keep me awake at night are consistently being called on drunk college kids living in the new condo hi-rises around Seattle U. The fights I see are on 12th and Jefferson on Sunday afternoons because the dudebros can't handle their bloody marys. The worst noise is coming from Von Trapp's on Saturday night and if you want to see underage drinkers just walk past the front door. These complaining "neighbors" sound like a bunch of racist assholes.

Not to exonerate the letter writer, but 18 or 28 or 48 or 88, WHO HAS UNPROTECTED SEX WITH A STRANGER?!! Also, so he maybe got herpes. Did she, I dunno, maybe get HIV from barebacking someone she doesn't know? This kid knows how condoms work and he was completely willing to put her at risk as well by not putting one on. It is very telling that she refers to him as an "18 year old boy" and herself as a "28 year old woman" as if their ages are in any way indicative of past experience. I've met 28 year old virgins and 18 years olds with a litany of STIs. Frankly, they're both irresponsible adolescents and I can only hope that this experience taught them BOTH a lesson.

I feel bad for everyone in that building and that neighborhood and really any community that is seeing similar changes. That said, this company is doing what almost any property management company would do, which is make the most profit from its investments. The only thing that will stop things like this from happening is if people stop moving in to these buildings. If people stopped paying $1200 for an apartment that was $750 two months ago, there would be no profit in this. If people stopped wanting multi-amenity high rise condos, there would be no profit in this. Put people ARE willing to pay premium to live in a neighborhood they perceive to have this culture and allure about them, regardless if that culture and allure is being destroyed by their very presence. To stop this sort of "Commodification of Community" you have to change people, the consumers. It's their money that drives this industry.

Mean, and also socially stigmatizing to people who do have STDs. I get it, drunk people are annoying and she'strying to do her job, but she's also on television and doesn't need to publicly shame a stranger having a good time in New Orleans during Mardi Gras.

"I could have put up with the drinking, the mood swings, your vanity, your ridiculous schedule, and how selfish you were in bed if you had not insisted on talking about previous guys you had slept with and how many of them went on to do fabulous things."

Translation: I'm totally down to date a complete asshole as long as she doesn't dredge up personal insecurities regarding my masculinity and sexual prowess.

This is bullshit. You can't blame others when someone takes their own life. Many, many people have faced MUCH worse punishments (and been convicted!) and not committed suicide. She was doing what she is supposed to do, which is charge people who have committed crimes with those crimes. This is grossly irresponsible though sadly unsurprising coming from The Stranger.

As a pedestrian who has almost been hit, AMEN! I learned very quickly after moving here that black coat + black umbrella + poorly-lit intersections = recipe for getting run over. Not to say that there aren't a lot of clueless drivers paying more attention to their phones than the road, but you can't fix stupid. We can argue ourselves blue in the face about what "needs to be done" to ensure the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists, but in the meantime, I'm going to make myself as visible as possible.

I think the LW is leaving out some info: I know many people who do not personally agree with abortion but do not believe that it should be banned or not available to those wishing to have an abortion. It is a personal CHOICE. Much like supporting abortion rights is a CHOICE. If this guy said straight up that he is against all abortions and no one should have them, then I would (sorta) agree with the advice. But that's not (according to LW) what he said. I am very liberal and a extremely pro-choice, but I think that response is exactly the same "all-or-nothing" rhetoric used by anit-abortion groups.

Unlike rape, drug addiction is instigated by personal choice. I won't bother with the rest of your absurd whine.

Why wouldn't she break up with you? You're a naggy, sycophantic, unemployed slob who admittedly has to have people constantly spell things out for you and you're pushy. Also, you seem to ask for advice, but in a way to ensure you get the answer you want (or try to anyway.) You want her back? Here's an idea: bring something, ANYTHING, to the table. As it is now, all you're giving her is a doormat. And at least the kind you can buy from Target help keep the place CLEAN.
