commented on Guest Editorial: Allow Non-Citizens to Vote in Seattle Elections
I like the idea, and I like the Mayor's reasoning with this one glaring exception: "If it was good enough for white male settlers in 1853, it’s good enough for our diverse population today." I hope we can all agree that the moral decisions of 19th century white male settlers should NOT necessarily dictate our choices today.

All at one low, low price but that's not all. If you act now we will add this full color "pets of the Stranger office staff " calendar and the "doorways of Capitol Hill" tea cozy!
commented on Holy Smokes! A New Stranger Podcast About What the Hell Happened This Week
I liked this program okay. Like lots of folks, I try to keep up with local news but my time seems to be ever more limited, so a summary podcast serves a useful function. That said, this would be a MUCH better program if a single person on the panel had a different opinion on ANY topic. 40 minutes of people agreeing with each other doesn't exactly make for compelling radio. Maybe in the future you could invite some voices of dissent? Some clever thinkers from a conservative school like Seattle U? Or one of the more agreeable voices from conservative talk radio? Wouldn't it be more fun to hear Charles Mudede really go at it with a conservative economist?
