Jan 17 in-frequent commented on The Best "Fuck You, Pedestrians"? Stewart Street and Denny Way.
@7 you're wrong here. this is, like, one of the few intersections where the dilemma doesn't apply. there are no right-turns to cut in line (on red) here. the stewart cars don't wait for it to clear and get stuck blocking denny. it's pretty bad. before the light cycle changed (only a few months ago) it was the left-turners from denny to stewart who would do the same thing.

and, yeah, the drivers will not go right to clear the intersection.
Jan 4 in-frequent commented on We Still Get Great Comments (From Great Commenters) Here On Slog.
the feel of slog comments has certainly changed in a downward direction over the years. i've been reading and somewhat (in)frequently commenting for way too long now. part of the problem for me is that i'm not a part of the good slog "community" -- as i once was. but i think apart from that, there's just a lot more stupid or incendiary comments here. before there was, like, one or two trolls. and even they would attempt discourse from time to time. now, there's a bunch more and there's not even an attempt to communicate. also, calatina is great, and i miss fnarf's insight on everything seattle.

you lost, apologists. get over it. hickey was charged criminally for some rapes, and then charged civilly for his business scam to solicit sex from women. make all the analogies you want, make all the comparisons you want, you're wrong. you lost.

@1-@7 yes but do all really *understand* where she's coming from?

here's a link to one of her older articles that might help give you a little context:…

" they haven't really been in contact in over sex months..."

letter-writer's subconscious is pretty clear here :)

Nov 3, 2016 in-frequent commented on Seattle High School Teacher Gets a “Teaching Moment” After Wearing Blackface.
@13 - generally confused. the stranger article is not an editorial, it is only reporting facts. it actually supports no view and makes no judgement, but lets the story and those quoted speak for it/themselves. what part was filth? the facts? the stranger reporting on facts that happened? even if you don't like what happened -- maybe especially so -- wouldn't you the reader want the facts reported? why would the stranger be ashamed of reporting these facts?

i'm guessing he thought that the mask made the difference, and with some masks, like the one i linked to above, i can see why there could be gray area at times. he seems to have had no ill-intent, and is handling his apology well. but that doesn't mean his actions didn't hurt or harm others. seeing the picture of him -- he should have known better.
