Hi Stranger. We used to have something. A connection. i'd listen and look, and I'd find thought provoking things in what you'd post. I identified with your point of view. revel with you in the joy and culture of our city. take your word for recommendations on new and, frankly, sometimes lackluster activities. your personality was something that cheered me up, showed me something unexpected, encouraged me to have fun, made me think about something a little harder, or just reassured me there were people like me out there living in the world. Lately I feel like I just don't know you anymore. Not sure when you jumped the shark. But all your good content and comments that used to make me laugh or identify with other Seattle residents (and friends), it's just disappeared. Sure, I occasionally hear about a good show, but mostly you just repost ill thought out garbage from the internet. I just don't know who you are anymore. With Savage on perpetual vacation, no worthwhile coverage of national politics (Hey Ansel, Charles, Paul, if you were real journalists, you'd go report from Israel or Gaza. If you were worried about human progress, you'd organize a panel discussion or author insightful editorial), lack of decent local news, and junk like that call to the Blue Angels office, I just don't care to listen you anymore.

I feel like... I've changed. But you've changed, too. And I just don't like the new you.

goodbye.

>> What do you think of Capt. Gregory McWherter?

i think, "McWherter was reprimanded after a disciplinary proceeding this week and was previously relieved of his duties as an executive officer."

Donny you're out of your element! Dude, the Chinaman is not the issue here!

What was the point this is article was trying to make?

that there are different death tolls on each side? That Israel is bad? That the Palestinians are bad? That the conflict can't be unpacked in a blog post?

Thanks for the heads up about Mika Vainio!

for some reason the schedule break down says July 20 is a Saturday. Earlier in the article it's listed (correctly) as the 19th. Not nit-picking, just alerting you to the typo.

@Charles have you considered biking? It's way faster than taking the bus and waiting for transfers. More fun, too! ...though I'm admittedly projecting my version of fun on the objective definition.
