Seattle Parks page is pretty clear, though probably should be edited to specifically include drones. From http://www.seattle.gov/parks/magnuson/ki… "Please, no motorized model airplanes on the hill...If you want to fly a radio-controlled model airplane (which you can't do at Warren G. Magnuson Park), check out the clubs that have members-only fields in King and Snohomish counties. http://www.towerhobbies.com/rcwairclub.h…"

And if it's taking ReWA "a couple of months" to get paperwork processed by DSHS, they're probably doing it wrong. Check with more than one source in the immigrant and refugee resettlement community next time, you'll get a more complete picture of what's really happening.

Uh, recognize there are deadlines and all, but fact check maybe? Refugee Women's Alliance is not in the business of building affordable housing. And while some funding to local agencies for resettling refugees is time-limited by the federal government, there are employment services, microloans, youth programs, domestic violence support, and many other services available *for years* to help Seattle's refugees and immigrants. Do they always have an easy time adjusting? No. Are they "left behind" as Eshetu claims? Hardly.

It is the duty of a newspaper to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable. Nice job!

@1 @2 Silly wabbit.

The U.S. has more guns - and more gun-related deaths - than any other industrialized nation: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/health/2013/…

The U.S. gun murder rate is also higher:

Hey Tim Egan, I'm looking for that article you wrote a few years back, warning that CEO pay increases should be phased in "gradually over many years". Can seem to find it anywhere though...
Feb 1, 2014 cloudveil1 commented on New Study Finds Modest Minimum Wage Hikes Have No Negative Impact on Employment.
@35

You'll always be able to find some economists who believe increasing the minimum wage hurts employment. But when you look at the totality of minimum wage research - and in particular the more recent and sophisticated studies since 2000 or so - it points to little to no measurable effect on employment due to a modest minimum wage increase. (http://www.cepr.net/documents/publicatio…)

BTW, "big labor" probably isn't your best stalking horse anymore, given that the share of the US workforce in a union is at a 97-year low (11.3%): http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/24/busine…

@32 You cited a publication from a PR firm (one funded in part by the restaurant industry) to back up a spurious claim about the minimum wage hurting employment. I pointed that out. That's all.
