Quick! Fix the headline before the trolls get you!
Oct 21, 2016 Patrick McGrath commented on Stop Grabbing Things! This Women's Empowerment Campaign Is Well-Intentioned But Misses the Mark.
@10: You got it right. But I think the author's point is that any talk of "grabbing" is repellent for some women even if it's part of a well-intentioned message.
Oct 11, 2016 Patrick McGrath commented on The Seattle Times Editorial Board Is More Concerned About Parks Than People.
This proposal feels like a backlash in the making.
Sep 23, 2016 Patrick McGrath commented on EOD: The Hamdog—Better or Worse Than the Whopperito?.
I bet the real inventor of the Hamdog is wishing he'd patented back in 2005:…

Oh yeah...USA! USA!

@2: It's also scientifically accurate to say that no individual lung cancer can be shown to be caused by cigarettes. But we don't have the diagnostic tools to prove that in any case so...what's the point? It just muddies the waters about a clear and present public health threat. Same thing with climate change.
Aug 12, 2016 Patrick McGrath commented on KPLU Has New Call Letters.
@2: Seriously. How about getting some Jason Moran in there? Or Madlib. Or De La Soul. Or MMW. So many exciting possibilities out there.
Jul 1, 2016 Patrick McGrath commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Man 4 Woman Annoyed @ Men 4 Men.
@6: You have no sympathy for someone who's suffering the same indignity as you? Curious. What did he do wrong? Complain about it?

Cool! I'm glad we won't be losing the local journalism. The jazz & blues on the other hand...oof. Let's take this opportunity to bring some more zest to those playlists, shall we?
Jun 16, 2016 Patrick McGrath commented on Did We Learn Anything From Seeing Footage of the SPU Shooting?.
We saw that it can be effective to fight back in an active shooter situation, and that the outcome would have been different if the shooter hadn't needed to pause to reload.
Jun 8, 2016 Patrick McGrath commented on Ijeoma Oluo on "Trickle-Down Progressivism".
What bugs me here as a comfortable middle-class liberal is not who's speaking up but the lack of basic organizing strategy: 1) Identify the objective (specifically--as in what law/policy/rule needs to change), 2) identify who affect that change, and 3) identify what it takes to secure the support of the person(s) who can affect the change. Until those questions are answered no good will come from screaming in the face of some poor guy at a Sanders rally.
