Weird how this thread has become all "show me the evidence!" It doesn't require another detailed statistical analysis to see how mass media influences our culture. Didn't the Columbine killers write about Spielberg creating a film of their story? Was it just a coincidence that the Aurora, CO killer chose a Batman premiere for his moment of infamy? It's not hard to find lots more examples. I think the letter writer has a really valid point, and maybe Paul protests too much. If we're finally starting to have an adult conversation about guns in this country, maybe it's also time to think hard about the link between popular culture's approach to guns and popular opinions about the same.

I saw her on Saturday, opening for Sharon Van Etten at the Neptune. She and her band were so good, so musical, so full of life, they put the headliner to shame.

Thank you @5. We'll keep "drinking the koolaid" of a massive amount of valid data gathered by scientists over decades. You can keep asking the "unpopular questions" of a lunatic fringe for whom ignorance + loud voices equal facts.

From where I'm sitting, deep in the heart of blue Seattle, it looks like a shrewd Democrat politician could bury the Republican candidate by playing the Tea Party/RINO divide. Come out strongly in favor of practical immigration policies, gay rights and a promise not to screw with the country's credit rating, and you will attract both loyal Democrats and sensible old school Republicans while scaring away the relatively small number of Tea Party Taliban.

I've got to join the chorus here. The food at the Elysian has ALWAYS sucked. I get a beer now and then, but I will never again eat their food.

Good luck pal. For your next trick you should try to stop the tide.

There's nothing any of you can say that will make me put down this lighter.

I'm rooting for the new world all the way! Colombia, Argentina, Costa Rica or Brazil over the stodgy Europeans..
