Oct 22, 2013 Justy commented on The New Separated Bike Track Is Good for Cyclists and Drivers.
You're absolutely right about the fear factor creating animosity between bicyclists and motorists. I don't bicycle most of the time because I'm afraid of being hit by a crazy driver, but when driving I am constantly afraid of hitting a bicylist (the streets are too narrrow or dangerous to pass or I'm never quite sure what the bicylist is going to do...will he/she really stop at that stop sign?) More bikeways are the way to go for everyone.

What a great story and inspiration for other communities that are likely to face this same issue. Probably will never stop the haters from hating, but at least if they know they are outnumbered they might STFU.

Some people are also allergic to nuts, should those be banned from grocery stores also? Why don't we just ban everything that any one person might be allergic to whlie we're at it. Just to be safe.
Aug 20, 2013 Justy commented on King County Sheriff Demotes Problem Cop.
Reading how this officer abused his authority makes my blood boil. What does it take to get a cop fired? In the private sector, he would have been gone after the second offense. This is why people get so upset with public employees and their unions (and I'm a union supporter). Even worse than this officer's conduct is the police guild. They would argue in his defense even if he wiped out an entire kindergarten in a blind rage. He's going to end up harming someone and the sad thing about it is that it is preventable.

All of these sad Slog posts today...can we have a puppy posting soon?
Apr 5, 2012 Justy commented on The Republican Notion of a "Level Playing Field".
Hey, I'm as anti-Republican as the next guy, but the growing disparity between public and private retirement plans grates on me too. Income disparity, retirement plan disparity...not good for anyone but the few who are on top.

Sorry for being dense here, but what is "genderqueer"? Loved HUMP, by the way.

God I love reading Slog now that Goldy is on board.

That's smart. Multitasking isn't what it's cracked up to be. Take a break, focus on something else, and I bet when you come back to it, Slog will be all the better for it.

Well said Dan (and I saw that pic of the Navy Seal this morning as well...love the macho scar).
