commented on New York City's Pizza Rat Had a Profound Effect on Me
It's likely Seattle rats and New York rats are different. (Seattle ranks higher for rat infestations than New York, interestingly enough.) Seattle rats are generally heavier, proportionally -- based on my sightings in Chinatown.
It's completely plausible that this is a legit New York subway rat. Every time I visit New York, seeing a rat couple scurry on the subway tracks is my inagaural "Yes, I'm in New York" moment every time.. and this rat definitely looks like a subway rat.

commented on Republican Senator Kills the "Kill-Bertha" Bill
And hence Washington state Republicans killed their primary chance for winning key elections in 2016. Not that I'm sad about that. I just wish the status quo wasn't an already depressing state of affairs.
