Your cookie meditation is perfect, so it is pro-ana in that way.
Jan 27 earwig commented on Ristorante Machiavelli: Is It Really So Good or Just a Capitol Hill Nostalgia Trip?.
This isn't about the food (which hits my sweet traditional Italian spot): I was huffing a 60 lb bag of dogfood and my distracted dog from the Mud Bay (still there? I don't know) when the owner of Machiavelli walked by, stopped, turned, and insisted on driving me the block to my truck. The nicest guy.

My friend said it was like being in Seattle in the '90's last night at the PRFM.

Bumbershoot had some definite hiccups last year, one being the extreme reduction of food stands.

Good going, Stranger - keep shining a light on this creepy rapist. He's probably getting off on all this talk about him, but the tide will change. Can't wait til the tables are turned.

There probably aren't many places where an encampment is truly dangerous. Too close to the street or on a steep hillside above the freeway, yes. The focus on sweeps is driven by the people who are embarrassed by physical evidence that people are living in such poverty in our wealthy city, and it takes focus away from really dealing with the root causes of homelessness. Dealing with that would be a change those folks really couldn't abide.
Jun 6, 2016 earwig commented on In Frantic Texts, Mayor Threatened to "Pull Police Off Enforcement" If Council Moved Forward with Jungle Plan.
Murray's turnaround on the "compassionate"-but-only-two-week outreach by UGM was a little confounding. Thanks for digging up the backstory, Stranger. Both Murray's and Lindsay's comments are offensive, Murray's for his money mindboggling threats and Lindsey's for his sexist "protection" of Sally Bagshaw.
May 24, 2016 earwig commented on As Outreach Begins in the Jungle, Council Members and Advocates Criticize Mayor's Plan to Sweep the Area.
Six out of 58 is not an encouraging number this far into the sweeps. It's possible some people will be housed or will be persuaded to go to shelter. It's also likely that a large number of people will be on the streets - an outcome that doesn't help them at all.
