William of Seattle is sitting on his ass in his capitol Hill condo.
Feb 18 William of Seattle commented on AWP May Reverse Closed-Door Policy on Book Fair.
Paul, you might get something in the NY Times someday, who knows? The book dude is just throwing out "NY Times" because all liberals, like me, throw it out for Gravitas. For example, have you read today's Krugman? As far as Seattle's largest bookstore, I'd have to argue that Gargantua on S. Lk. Union is all that.
Feb 13 William of Seattle commented on Financialization and the Death of American Innovation.
"WE" live in a Financial Oligarchy in the Age of Globalization. Everything is right on schedule, Charles. The areas that the Powers That Be can't seem to get a handle on is what to with the 99%. It's not that The Elites don't have many thoughts and plans for us, it's that they can't come to consensus. An Age of Darkness is in view.
Feb 13 William of Seattle commented on Chatterbox: The Internet Is Talking About Ernest Hemingway's Hamburger Recipe.
"The two waiters inside the cafe knew that the old man was a little drunk, and while he was a good client they knew that if he became too drunk he would leave without paying, so they kept watch on him."

Bring me a Nada burger! The old man said.

Cheese? asked the older waiter?

Nada!

Feb 13 William of Seattle commented on Happening Right Now: A Tiny Amount of Party Up for Grabs.
Emily, I like the picture; it's very much Capitol Hill. Out and about, indeed. It inspires an elbow bender.

I match it with a bit of mumble from Malcom Lowry and his towering Under The Volcano:

"How indeed could he hope to find himself, to begin again when, somewhere, perhaps, in one of those lost or broken bottles, in one of those glasses, lay, forever, the solitary clue to his identity? How could he go back and look now, scrabble among the broken glass, under the eternal bars, under the oceans?"

....and then he puked

Feb 13 William of Seattle commented on Mayor Ed Murray on the Comcast/Time Warner Merger: It's "Bad for Consumers, Bad for the Future of the Internet, and Bad for Democracy".
Two of the most disliked companies on the planet to become one....get out your spanners and get used to that boiling cabbage smell and down a glass of Victory Gin; everything is fine.

Good Job, Mister Mayor. You are emerging as the serious, strong leader that Seattle needs. We must all be vigilant and aware of the emerging Corporate Media Dystopia.
