Jul 15 stinkbug commented on The Morning News: Death Toll Rises in France, Seattle Police Arrest 204 "Johns," Equitably Paid Employees Buy CEO a Tesla.
hey slog, Roosevelt and 50th is not "Ravenna". Where did you get that idea?
Jul 13 stinkbug commented on Meet Sonic Boom Records’ New Owner, Mike Pitts.
"Actually, the first thing I'll do is ask the employees what kind of changes they'd like to see. They're an A-list team here and they know better than I what can change for the better."

If the changes work out really well I hope they'll be getting bonuses for their in-house consulting work.

Where is "Roosevelt Avenue Northeast"? If there's a WAY (get it?) to show ignorance of Seattle outside of Capitol Hill, The Stranger will find it.
Jun 27 stinkbug commented on The Morning News: Supreme Court Gets Rid of Texas' Abortion Restrictions, Jesse Williams' Powerful Awards Speech, and Pride.
The Stranger: "The laws...had caused about half of the state's 41 abortion clinics to close, the New York Times reports."

The NYT: "The ambulatory surgery standard could have caused 10 more clinics to close, leaving only about 10 open."

Those aren't saying the same thing.

Who is the idiot who first claimed that this happened in the "Ravenna neighborhood"? KOMO?

Same thing happened with the Cafe Racer shooting. Instead of deciding if the area was Roosevelt or U-Dist, media just seemed to go with Ravenna.

I'm only 45 minutes into it and I already like it lots (although I'm a sucker for archival footage).

But some are going to have to get adjusted to the pacing. Don't start watching this at midnight.

@15: Because when some bike-friendly stuff was proposed for 65th several years ago many folks in Ravenna went ballistic and the city backed down from any quick action.

@11: Huh? They already euthanized five gators. They euthanize first and then determine which may have chomped on the boy.

The Bachelor/ette is garbage.

However, The Baby Bachelorette (via Jimmy Kimmel) is very cute:

Remember a long time ago when the Slog page was slow to load? But then there was a nice redesign and the page was quick to load and everything was right in the world. But lately it seems very slow to load once again. Is this just me?!
