Charles, come on. You should try driving through that clusterfuck.

The key in this town is: don't go in the intersection unless you know you can clear it. The (unsignalled) left onto Denny, the (unsignalled) next left to get to the I-5 offramp, the traffic piling up from the Stewart street off-ramp. It's ridiculous. Pedestrians crossing at those 2 left turns can keep ANY cars from getting through.

Turn it into a 4-way crossing intersection like 1st & Pike or 1st & University. Cars go, then people go.

@5: that sentiment may be "sound", but not understanding the structural changes in the global economy is not. regions that are dependent on resource extraction will boom and bust. what does she think will fuel the region's economy if coal isn't coming back? mushroom harvesting?

it's over for west virginia - mr. peabody's coal train has hauled it away. unless they embrace Keynesian stimulus and get big gubmint to pay to repair the land.

@2: It was gullible fubes who gave it to *, not evangelicals per se. I know multiple * voters: jews & catholics. they believe bullshit. they vote based on spite, Israel & abortion. those people need to hear some hard truths, not mollycoddling.

Rodgers has some ovaries to show up at a MLK observance. good for the hecklers.

@1: you know her publisher and her severance package don't allow that. i can give you one obvious name: hannity. trump flat-out said he'd vouch for him.

as far as slime sticking to kelly, who knows better how the world of conservative white men works? she could call herself a dem in 2 years and waltz into the white house in a landslide. hell, by that time, she could primary trump and walk in.

one challenge for bike sharing in seattle: everybody already has a bike.

if it's too hilly and rainy for you to ride, you are probably an obese, diabetic conservative.

I'll have to remember to ask my Dad if he intended to put Birchers in charge of the US when he voted for *. He used to laugh about them when I was a kid.
