How dare people spend the money they earn.

Please show us where ST had any plans to link Tacoma and Seattle with light rail with zero stops in between.

My mother lost her husband and daughter within the same week in June. I promised her we'd do the best to have an amazingChristmas this year. Instead, I had to put my cat to sleep Christmas Eve. I'm so fucking over 2016, the idea of Donald Trump's nuclear winter actually sounds appealing.

It's been one week and I'm already seeing over reaching by the Trump/Republican administration.

If Trump were truly smart, he'd take a page out of L.Ron Hubbard's page book and set up a religion. We know his followers are gullible, he has a messianic complex, and he abhors paying taxes. Mix together and what do you have? Trump: the religion. My guess the gold cross he sees so many of his followers wearing he thinks stand for 'Trump.'

I'm picturing the scriptures now: The Father, The Son, and the Holy Shit is my daughter a fox trinity.
Oct 8, 2016 ProstSeattle commented on Washington GOP Chair Claims Trump Was "Channeling Bill Clinton" During Comments about Groping Women.
I actually heard the interview live. Before I knew this was Susan Hutchison being interviewed, I thought it must be some fringe Republican apologist. When I heard them say the name 'Susan' I still couldn't believe it. The tone of the interviewers was true incredulity. I honestly think they thought they were being punted, because it was all so surreal. I think Susan Hutchison took the chairmanship of the state GOP to give her a chance of running for office again, but honestly, I can't even imagine her showing her face in public again. It'll be like the final scene of Dangerous Liasons when Glenn Close's character is hissed at the opera.

I've always feared a shooting at several malls during Christmas shopping season.

Because we still have the subarea equity. Money raised in each sub-area has to be spent in that are. East King County has more tax base, hence Issaquah gets a light rail line. Honestly, I think this will fail, and Seattle may best be served providing our own transit. You may not be able to easily get to outlying areas, but we'd be able to get around town more efficiently.

I'm not certain I understand the point of this article. When I was fresh out of college I couldn't afford to live in the neighborhood I wanted, so I worked hard until I could. I vote for all transit, housing and education levies to help all of our citizenry, and I still believe if you work hard you can achieve great things.

When I see the housing being built down at Pike Place Market, I wonder if those units were sold at market rate, how many additional people would receive subsidized housing? I suppose there is something to be said for spreading our subsidies to all neighborhoods, but pragmatism dictates that we can achieve more housing if we go to outlying urban nodes with decent transit.
