Aug 6 boyd main commented on At Least 10 People Say They’ve Been Drugged at Seattle Bars This Summer.
This is really good information to get out there. One question though - the lead caption mentions that police recommend you should "get the test" if you think you've been drugged. But unless i missed it, there's no information in the article about how one should do that, whether it's likely to effective in IDing the specific drug (one might guess not, given the discussion about the wide variety of drugs used), the time window in which the test should be sought, etc.

Totally Hathaway, and given the disdain people feel towards her, its just gotta be something about that look.

Sounds amazing. Jen - how do you think children would react? Too disturbing for a five-year old, or would it take a more worldly viewpoint to be disturbed by it?

Beautiful or not, it's a goddamn waste of street level real estate that should have been used for purposes that would bring vitality and walkability

Heard a great story on All Things Considered about a 17-year vet of street policing the worst of LA. n=2 isn't quite a trend, but heartwarming nonetheless.…

Is it functionally any different from Tumblr? Looks a hell of a lot like it to me.

It's not there on google maps satellite view, so must be kind of new. But from the same source it looks like behind the house he also has a sculpture of a giant tea-cup.

I blame the Fairness Doctrine for setting the US, especially, along this course.

One of my favorite field listening experiences was sleeping out on the point of Friday Harbor and hearing the the WSDOT ferries as they came up the channels. You could hear them through the water first, a deep aquatic thrum, then higher and crisper through the air as they passed the point and came into sight. They would cruise on and the bells on the floating buoys would ring out through the night, struck by the wake.
