Hmmm. This tone is very different than that of the following internal King County Bar Bulletin article...…

Great article, Sydney! Looking forward to reading more on this from you and more on other topics; you're a great addition to the paper.

I really like the idea of bringing roses into common use as relationship-signal currency. Direct communication is so hard, you guys!
Jan 28, 2015 bookworm commented on Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O’Toole Orders Review of Officer Cynthia Whitlatch's Conduct.
Unless Murray is willing to take on the Seattle Police Officers Guild (SPOG), there will be no "reform" of the police in this town. The Office of Professional Accountability is a sham.…

You really brought me back with this, David. And I'm still not sure how I feel about that. I feel so uncomfortable about having remembered a few of the lyrics to this, likely 26-27 years after having seen this video.

Great piece, Cienna, actually one of the most useful ones of these "Back to School" things ever written. I hope its Internet reach goes beyond Slog.

And great clarification above, @10 about the derailing.

Aug 27, 2014 bookworm commented on Can Haruki Murakami Learn New Tricks?.
I totally agree with this review. I've been a Murakami fan for about 20 years, and was really disappointed by 1Q84. I've described the last 100 pages as feeling like he's just treading water. It deflates what would have been a relatively good ending.

But the new book is compelling and engaging; I'm in the middle of reading it, and my excitement about it reminds me of how I felt when I first started reading Murakami.
