That headline was not easy to parse but I did it!!
Sep 2 spock commented on Mayor Murray Shrugs Off Another Deadline to Fix Police Oversight in Seattle.
Ed Murray seems to have plenty of time (and public funds) to conduct a witch hunt for whistleblowers who released contract proposals that responsible observers say should have been public anyway.

But stalling on actually reforming the police which he said duribg the campaign was the big problem eith McGinn?

RESIGN NOW. DON'T WAIT FOR AN ELECTION. IT WILL BE EASIER THIS WAY.

Salt, pepper, and lemon or lime juice... taste and apply as needed, and you can make nearly anything taste good.

A great day for Slog, including video of the high jumper's genitals allegedly taking down the bar which looks like it might have fallen anyway, plus a new item in the series of random Chunky Soup stories, this one not actually labeled as sponsored content, but probably still being paid advertising camouflaged in thick layers of attempted satirical misdirection.

@5 - Yes, and also I wonder who was chair of the House Finance Committee for 3 years starting in 2013?

@6 - How about ending all the special corporate tax breaks? That would raise quite a bit of money.

Did you mean to say "Murray is serving on an interim basis." ?

FTFY

@28 - about the theft analogy, what you say is directly contradicted by the last 4 paragraphs of the article I linked at @18. In the case at hand, the farmer did not sign any agreement not to replant, having bought seed from a grain elevator with no conditions.

Maybe not everyone is as sleazy as Monsanto. But Monsanto's existence demonstrates that the regulatory environment is not adequate to prevent Monsanto's business practices. Therefore all other companies will be pushed by market forces to adopt similar practices in order to stay competitive.

Humans hybridize species within an environment where hybridization has occurred naturally throughout evolutionary history. Therefore there are some natural limits on the screwups that can be accomplished. Genetic engineering bypasses those natural limits.

All we are trying to achieve here is mandatory labeling to let consumers decide. Imagine the whining if we were accomplishing real regulation to assess and control the unintended consequences of this technology. But yes, let's have mandatory labeling.

@20 ... I stand by my remarks. Your theft analogy is silly. A better analogy would be if I bought seed packets at QFC, grew the plants, let some go to seed, collected seeds and planted them. Now QFC security shows up to bust me for shoplifting because it was "their" seed and they didn't authorize me to grow a second generation.

But you know that, don't you. I really wonder where you are coming from with this comment. Everything else about it is weird also. Do you work at Gates and this is what passes for being super smart over thete? It wouldn't surprise me.
