commented on The Local Artist Who Made the Broadway Smurf Turds Recommended Getting Rid of Them Months Ago
I don't think the white poles will end up in the bike lane because they are normal traffic devices. There's no aesthetic appeal to moving them. A driver may bump one occasionally, but then they just fall over, I think (seen them lying down in other areas). It seems like "pranksters" who are probably not drivers were moving these things.
The idea was nice, public art is more interesting than the same old boring stuff, but it didn't work.

commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Well-Adjusted People Problems
I really want to comment, cause I feel the LWs pain. But I haven't solved this myself, this propensity towards boredom when you think everyone else has something dirtier going on. Maybe try edging. That's vanilla, but torment-y. Also perhaps sensory deprivation (only the safe mild forms), if you haven't.

commented on Vulcan to Redevelop Cal Anderson Park
Why would/does anyone promote apodments? They suck. You can't even have a tiny little pet in one of them. We still have plenty of space without that crap.

commented on When a Jury with No Black People on It Puts a Black Man Away for the Rest of His Life
I didn't go to jury duty when I got something in the mail about it. I might have, but they wanted me to go to Kent, when I'm 2.5 miles away from DT Seattle. I didn't have a car at the time, and didn't have cash in the bank or vacation days from work, so it just wasn't logistical.
And there's no *proof* I got the "summons" in the mail.
I do think that trials shouldn't be held without an actual 'jury of peers'.
I'm white, but identify as a poor, which in my case leads to compassion.
