@35: Not only misogyny (bait??!?? are you fucking serious???) but a boatload of latent racism here. Instead of talking about broader issues of affordability and difficulties with communities of color struggling with poverty to survive amidst gentrification, you get some dumb fucker that complains that the price of his beer is too high, and whines that a popular neighborhood close to downtown has higher rents than it did 5 years ago. Sorry, but preserving some kind of fucking "authentic" Cap Hill as a hipster playground in the white part of Seattle doesn't really rank high in my list of priorities for action.

Or @31, who apparently believes that being shoved into a locker one too many times as a kid gives them the holier-than-thou right to discriminate and exclude people they don't like from a neighborhood.

Yes, the art is funny and witty, but I'm glad someone had the gumption to call him out on his bullshit.

I'd have thought that with an event this classy, they would have managed to proofread the invite. I'm betting that "Cylde Holland" wasn't too impressed.

In September, he'll need to fall back on that when he gets kicked out of office...

Hmmm... affordable housing versus supporting a business that has a "cash flow problem"... which charity to choose?

Thought that it was Patrick Stewart doing the narration at first and did a bit of an eyeroll -- I just hope that when this unnamed dude (Khan? Gary Mitchell? Alice Eve's cuckolded boyfriend?) talks about how he's "returned", it doesn't mean that they're mining the Pit of Fanservice.

How fucking pointless. Right afterwards, I bet they'll go to the Apple Store and smudge the windows in overly pretentious ways. I mean, how better to get the message across about their labor practices?

It must be very effective "invisible darkness". I don't think that anyone with an ounce of reason can find it.

@40: It's doesn't matter if WE trust rating agencies... it's whether other people in the economy do, and collapse the economy based on those decisions.

And sure, I don't think that subsidizing education in EVERYTHING for EVERYONE is wise public policy by any means, or that people that engaged in speculation over responsible investment should be rewarded. But when "market adjustments" involve extended hardship and economic disruption for a lot of people at a time when deregulation and tax cuts are the only strategies the rich want to entertain, it's hard to see how "suck it up, buttercup" is a good public policy approach.
