I love that she finally admits she never actually saw Wingate swing the club! She swore in the recording that it was captured on the video. She is the absolute worst, and if she wins her appeal, we might as well give up on reforming the SPD.

I still don't understand most of what was actually being done, but this is a fantastic and rare look into an artist's process.
Aug 13 deign_to_say commented on Hisashi Iwakuma Throws No-Hitter as Mariners Make Themselves Noteworthy for Maybe the Last Time.
Baseball isn't for watching on TV anyway, and there were 25000 at Safeco. I listened to the game at work, and it was the quietest no-hitter I could imagine. I had to keep checking if there were still no hits throughout the game!

Happy for Kuma, and there's still time for an impossible run now that nearly everyone, me included, has given up.
Aug 7 deign_to_say commented on Um, Can We Talk About How More Than 23,000 of You Voted for Goodspaceguy?.
Yep, @5 and @6. Votes for good space guy and the seemingly unqualified socialist candidate were really just votes against Gregoire. No real candidate wanted to run an incumbent with a seat open, so we got a couple of jokers.

@3 Agreed on timing, but didn't the Stranger endorse Sandy Brown for the 5th?
Jul 29 deign_to_say commented on The Mariners Baseball Badly, but You Should Watch Them Anyway.
@5 yeah, he DH'ed then moved to first. He was playing, but also mostly watching from the bench..

@1 I haven't heard testilying before, thanks for that great portmanteau!
Jul 27 deign_to_say commented on District Date: Exploring the Sprawling, Car-Dependent District 5.
Often forgotten far-flung burg, Jesus Christ the district starts at 85th Street. The Stranger acts like anything north of the ship canal is another country. Surprised you're even covering it, I guess just this once, you'll make an exception.

Even several years ago, it would be difficult to imagine marriage equality in all 50 states, hurrah!!

60 people a day moving to Seattle, that is more than I would have guessed. Traffic is going to get even worse - really wish 1970s Seattle had voted for the hugely subsidized subway system.
