I would like to know: when can we halt work on the deep bore tunnel and other WSDOT projects requiring federal funding?

I don't see anything about consent here. I am more in the forty-something crowd than college age, but apparently some of my associates still think it is right for them to be "assertive" when a woman says no. More reminders are helpful.

Why does the byline on this story say "Tom Rasmussen"? Does that mean the whole story is satire?

I hope I'm wrong but this smells like somebody's dirty trick. Dude is going to make some noise for a while and then endorse Ed Murray.
I hope I speak for many large Democratic donors when I say to Democratic candidates and their consultants: don't go pulling this type of shit because we will cut you off hard, and we have long, long memories.

If we want some payback for Rodney Tom, we can oppose the unfunded widening of highway 520 on the Seattle side. Drivers coming from Medina will experience Rodney's Merge as the highway loses a lane in the middle of the lake. Widening 520 never made sense anyway in this age of Peak Car.
Another thing: I am about ready to give Jay Inslee some credit for being a climate ninja, by supporting the Columbia River Crossing project so strongly that he drew a lot of Republican opposition and got it scrapped. Pitching the CRC at the Cascade Bicycle Club was so over the top that maybe he was sending us a coded signal that it was a put-on. I had my back to the big screen, so I wasn't watching closely enough to see if he winked.
This sucks about transit though.
