FWIW, one of my Beacon Hill neighbors says that the Mayor was there at the Block Party.

The amount of misinformation in this article is simply stunning. Precincts and legislative districts are partisan "blobs"? Seriously? The party has nothing to do with them. Maybe you should have dragged your ass out of bed on Saturday morning to go to a caucus and actually learn something about how it all works.

And perhaps it is true that a caucus isn't the most inclusive way to do this, but the parties are private organizations allowed to choose whatever method they want to select their candidates. If they want to make you meet in the middle of the night on railroad tracks in Black Diamond, WA, they can. Presumably they feel that caucuses get more dedicated Democrats to show up, and that people who actually care that much are who should make the choice. I don't know. But they provide an absentee system, so kwitcherbitchin'.

I am a Bernie supporter, but I actually enjoy the caucuses, though I am troubled by the accessibility issues. But at least I know what the delegates we elected on Saturday were representing!

Catalina, you rock. Thank you for the history lesson. I think sometimes people who have lived here a long time forget that our socialist electric utility here is kind of unusual, and also that it works pretty damned well.

It's not really possible to only patronize union businesses any more, but i do try if it's an industry that still has active unions at all. One of the things that has led to the collapse of unions in this country is that everyone is too goddamn selfish to deal with any inconveniences that would benefit us as a larger group, such as avoiding non-union businesses. I'm not perfect, but I do my best.

And the answer is, yes, Conan comics. Of course.

I was pretty happy about this until I saw they're non-union. Guess I won't be going there.

Conan used to come in to the comic shop where I worked to buy comics. Guess which ones.

I don't want a social media policy that prevents them from showing us their true colors. Instead, I want a policy that they must post this stuff under their real names and affiliations. So we know who the bigots are and who to fire.

Yeah, the choruses are so, so close. It's not that they're only close after "knob twiddles and pitch changin'" -- that was just done to get them in the same key for the video. But just because the two songs are in different keys does not mean the melody of the chorus isn't essentially the same. If I take a Nirvana song, change the words, and perform it in a higher key, is it a different song? No. It's still the Nirvana song with new words.

One of my earliest memories is of watching the band on one of their TV shows when I was sick in bed. And when I say early, I mean it -- I was 2 or 3 years old. I have basically loved them my entire life. and, yes, they were the "local team" -- I grew up just up the hill from Nathan Hale HS where there was a Raider painted on the chimney, and as a tiny kid I thought for sure that the band and Nathan Hale were connected and that one of their album photos that showed them on a lawn was shot on the Hale front lawn. No actual connection, of course...
