Nov 30 stinkbug commented on Recycling My Back Pages: A Music Writer/Collector Reflects on Disposing of His Magazine Archive.
Very sad. And wasteful.

You had other choices beyond donating them to UW (who likely wouldn't have wanted them) and listing them one by one on eBay.

You could have spent two minutes putting a "Free - must take all" posting on Craigslist. You could have sat them outside. You could have easily donated them to a a wide variety of places.

Several years ago at Short Run Peter Bagge had a "garage sale" at his table where he sold a lot of old comics and magazines he no longer wanted. I ended up buying a bunch of issues of Spy. There are people that would have wanted your Creems and Forced Exposure and other mags.

Oh well.
Nov 15 stinkbug commented on Guest Editorial: Now More than Ever, Seattle Must Welcome Upzones.
It's not as simple as Upzone / Don't Upzone. Some people believe in upzoning, but don't believe an entire district should be upzoned at once.

A bunch of racist flyers and stickers appears in parts of Seattle between August and October, but I don't think the Stranger ever covered it. The map linked to on this page shows the locations and photos of the flyers: http://www.pugetsoundanarchists.org/node…

@2: "everyone knew the Clinton was going to win and she didnt"

No, everyone didn't know or expect that. Even places like 538 gave him a 30% or so chance of winning. Polls showed tight races in battleground states (and with the margin of error a toss up). Sure, she was ahead in national polls, which MSM loves to report on, but those as you know are meaningless in an EV world. The "shocking upset" wasn't really all that shocking.
Nov 1 stinkbug commented on Samantha Bee Makes a Compelling Argument That Donal Trump Can't Read.
If anything, he can't see well. During that one interview months ago (with AC?) when he took a piece of paper out and read it, the letters on it were HUGE. I'd like to know his vision results.

@4: Show me the last time "5 or 10 cars in an area" all had their tires slashed on the same night.
Oct 17 stinkbug commented on John Oliver Shreds Third Party Candidates Gary Johnson, Jill Stein, and Joe Exotic.
@4: This wasn't about "the arguments against third (and fourth and fifth...) parties", it was about third party choices for President of the United States. I'm guessing that he, like Dan and others, can see a value in third parties being on city council and various local offices. But to think that a plurality of voters will out of the blue vote for a third party person is a bit silly, no?

"Beside the University Book Store, Buffalo Exchange..."

I think the UBS reference was supposed with the Crossroads Trading Co. mention in the same paragraph. Buffalo Exchange isn't next to UBS.

Aug 31 stinkbug commented on The Morning News: Thousands Show Up for Trump in Everett, Man Found Stabbed Near City Hall.
Trump claimed that there were 8,000 people waiting outside who couldn't get in.

Is that accurate? Since it's Trump I'm guessing no.
Aug 31 stinkbug commented on The Vandalized Bettie Page Mural Will Come Back Bigger and Better Than Before, This Time With Drag Icon Divine.
Add me to the "I like Divine but this doesn't quite look right" camp.

The red distracts from the simple/strong black and white of Miss Page. And it looks like Betty is about to get sucked into Divine's upskirt.
