commented on Mayor Threatened Seattle Police Union with "Immediate" Move to Arbitration... Two Months Ago
For fuck's sake, can Hillary get elected and finally call Murray "up" which is what he appears to be waiting for? He's going to duck and drag his feet until then. He'd be a tough sell as governor, which is the normal launching pad for the Dem-establishment-machine players in this state. Mayor of Seattle is the second most likely position to get the national tap for being a good party lapdog. It's the only explanation for someone so milquetoast to want to be mayor of this city. Can we get this national business rolling so that we can get someone in the Mayor's office who is a vertebrate?! It's bad enough he's so subservient to the local corporate overlords, but SPOG will bat him around like a cat with lint.

commented on Hey, Howard Wright, Wondering if You Voted in Seattle in 2013? You Didn't.
Full Definition of ELECT
1: carefully selected : chosen
2: chosen for salvation through divine mercy
3a : chosen for office or position but not yet installed
b : chosen for marriage at some future time
Bless your hearts for thinking that Wright's money and influence didn't get Murray elected.....and that only his hypothetical single vote would.......

A friend recommended Sears. And with their financial woes, they've apparently been running some pretty serious sales lately.
I'm in the same situation, and so far, I've found the best customer service outside of the city. Sadly so.

When I first read it, I thought I was being fooled by a link to The Onion. Then, I realized how much competition The Onion has these days from factual reporting.

@1. See the last sentence of @8.
Additionally, here is a definition of "alternative" as an adjective: (a) affording a choice of two or more things, propositions, or courses of action.
In this case, any treatments that aren't radiation, would be considered "alternative treatments." And in this paragraph, within the context of Goldy's article, it was used to describe a potential treatment option - from the SAME doctor who actually prescribed the radiation in the first place (because s/he had a personal financial interest in radiation treatment). Given that the doctors at issue actually prescribed radiation treatment, (probably a urologist or a oncologist), I would imagine that any "alternatives" would come from a pretty standard repertoire.
You weren't nitpicking. You missed the point of the article and the entire context of the word.

commented on Police Threatened to Arrest Me for Taking Their Photo Last Night
Like everyone else, I commend you for keeping your cool, taking pictures and making notes while everything was fresh. And, of course, I'm glad that you took the time to write this article. I do hope that you publish the rest of the story as it plays out. At the same time, I wish you happened upon the port police at the airport more often like this. They seem to have stayed out of the limelight and yet have many identical issues with profiling and bullying merely for the sake of intimidation.
