Dec 17 RonK, Seattle commented on Obama to Normalize Relations with Cuba.
A good move in its own right, PLUS it puts the GOP in a tough spot.

And a good address to the nation -- but curiously, not one word about the impact on Major League Baseball!
Dec 16 RonK, Seattle commented on Smoking Gun Report Calls Ferguson Grand Jury Witness "A Fraud".
But the gran jury - and the FBI - nailed this one a long time ago ... along with at least one complete fabricator making up testimony against the cop.

What's this doing here at this late date? Hasn't anybody at The Stranger been following the case?

Where the Garner killing is concerned, this 1985 Portland (OR) case seems very much in point:

If Wilson's description of the cigarillos hand-off is "intelligence-insulting ludicrousness", what are we supposed to make of Dorian Johnson's description of the same hand-off?
Nov 19 RonK, Seattle commented on Death to Self-Checkout Machines.
p.s. re my comment @83 -- The $30/hr we get paid for using self-checkout gets distributed proportionally among all customers, so if you insist on a live checker you still receive a pro rata share of of the savings induced by us self-checkers.

You, Charles are a free rider on our backs, and you are encouraging others to do the same.

1 in 10 Americans work in the grocery industry???

True, assuming there are only 25.5 million Americans.

Or 9 million Americans if we're just talking about checkout clerks.

Anyhow, when the clerk checks out your groceries, there are 2 (or 3) people standing there for as long as it takes. [Tech note: And that's not even counting the substantial measure of idle hands required to cover stochastic demand.]

When you self-check, there's just you - and you're always there anyway when you check out. And yes, you DO get paid, in the forms of lower grocery prices in a high-volume, extremely low-margin price-competitive business. Pretty soon now you'll be getting something like $30/hour for your troubles.

Charles pushes all of our buttons again. And again. And again. . . .
Nov 5 RonK, Seattle commented on Election Night 2014! Running Just as Fast as We Can to All the Election Night Parties.
@21 -- 00.35% isn't an eclipse???

Of course the late returns could cast this in an entirely different occluded light.

Spear's 16% still easily eclipses Goodspaceguy's best finish ever!

Good luck in all future endeavors.
