@1 - Quite the opposite really. Conservatives are going to HATE this movie, lots and lots of "we're killing the planet"
Apr 3 jcsmith2 commented on Seattle Restaurant Owner Behaving Badly.
It would appear that customers have spoken and Mr. Douglas has changed mind. http://tomdouglas.com/blog/2015/04/35796…

This might have played out differently elsewhere, but in Seattle? There was no way that was going to stand...

Medical procedures should be a private concern between patient and physician. Just like abortion Sen. Paul? Oh wait...

I think everyone is misinterpreting what WSDOT means when they say "catastrophic", it's a GOOD thing... /snark

This whole boondoggle scares me and makes me really glad I don't have to travel the Viaduct. And I agree with the above comment, thanks for staying on this Stranger/Slog. Why is it the best reporting always comes from weekly newspapers (VOSD, The Reader, Stranger, etc.)?

Eli - You needed to add a "What Vote?" option, because I'm pretty sure most people have NO idea this vote actually happened.

Mr. Constant - This may be your best piece yet, and that's saying something. Very well done.
Jun 3, 2014 jcsmith2 commented on Actor Fired For Tossing Disruptive Bigot From Theater.
Where were the ushers? I might be able to answer this part, well actually I'll let Dan answer for me - "Welcome to America, where we must defer to bigoted idiots at all times because our bigoted idiots tend to be armed"

Ushers are usually volunteer, though there should have been a house manager somewhere who could have helped but I'll refer you back to Dan's statement.

I think people are becoming far less likely to address boorish behavior for fear of setting off someone who might be armed.

We had one for my brother on the Edmonds-Kingston route (his request). Everyone from the crew to the other passengers were very kind.
Jan 30, 2014 jcsmith2 commented on How John Boehner Could Lose His Speakership.
John Boehner would use a wood chipper to slaughter his family rather than lose his "Speakership". As with previous attempts, rumors of his demise are overblown. He knows were all the bodies are buried...

Matt - I would pay money to watch Torts and Roy go at it!
