Jan 13 FranFW commented on Every Person You Know Is STILL Sick as Washington State Faces Flu Epidemic.
My wife didn't get a flu shot and she's been fighting the flu now for about a week. It's a nasty thing. I did get a shot and my flu was much less severe and at 72 hours, I'm about done with it. Could just be that I've got a better defense system, but I'm not discounting the shot either.

Funny, having the Angle Lake station opens means I spend LESS time in my car. But hey, if all you want are aesthetics, I guess that's what matters.
Jul 25, 2016 FranFW commented on Why are Democrats not Throwing Debbie Wasserman Schultz to the Wolves?.
She's a non-entity. Seriously, calm down.

I'll bet if you asked anyone on the streets who Debbie Wasserman Schultz is, easily half will think she played Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Only political wonks care; the average American isn't paying that much attention. To Clinton and Trump? Sure. Schultz? Eh, not so much. And by November, the only people who will remember her are the folks who are either deeply entrenched in politics or the people who are paid to care. And the occasional rabid ferret.

Chill out. She's not the make-or-break of this campaign, not by a long shot.
Jun 14, 2016 FranFW commented on Hillary Crushing Trump In New Poll.
I agree that the 9% is reflective of the backlash caused by Bernie's loss. But a lot of truly intelligent, highly progressive people I know loathe Hillary with a passion I can't quite explain. They'll turn to Johnson as the lesser of two evils. And he'll appeal to the old white man demographic if it's a choice between Johnson and Trump. I think he's someone to watch, is all I'm saying.
Jun 14, 2016 FranFW commented on Hillary Crushing Trump In New Poll.
Many, many Bernie supporters are throwing in with Gary Johnson. He's turning into a serious third party contender, and while I don't see him winning, I see him making this a much closer race than I had hoped for.
Feb 22, 2016 FranFW commented on Alright, Slog: Bernie or Hillary?.
I voted Bernie, but I'm deeply aware that it's entirely possible Hillary will get more accomplished simply because she knows where the dirt is and isn't afraid to exploit it. Not admirable by any means, but considering our government right now, as you say, pragmatic.

My wife marched on Washington in the summer of 1987. She's been smiling through tears all day today, and I can't stop holding her. Just stunning. Thank you, Dan, for all you've done to help bring this about.

I use my iPod classic almost daily, and I know my wife relies on hers at work. We're not generally Apple fans, but we'll be heartbroken when they finally give up.

So many - too many - people dismiss depression as unimportant. Depression lies and it kills. Rest in peace, Mr. Williams. You will be missed, and my heart breaks for your family.

Thank you for reminding me to fill out my ballot!
