commented on In Update from Fatal Encampment Shooting, Mayor Ed Murray Wonders, "Did I Act Too Late?"
I don't have any solutions. I live in the CD, and every time I go by Nicklesville, or walk under the freeway in the ID I just get unbearably sad and think "is this the best we can do?" I'm not pollyanna. There are always some people who can't be helped, who don't want anything other to do with this culture other than live on the edge of its margins. But what we see now is a lot of people who fell of the last rung, and it doesn't seem like we want to help them back up.

commented on Ta-Nehisi Coates Says the Arc of History Bends Toward Chaos
@3 - Coats isn't talking about legalisms. All you need to do is know Michael Brown is dead, and that shit stain who killed all those folks in South Carolina was handled with kid gloves. Police, black and white alike, treat the black suspect differently. Did you watch the Sandra Brown video?

commented on Why Is the Biggest Golf Tournament in the World Coming to Tacoma This Weekend?
I actually heard some jackhole say on the radio that this would put Seattle on the map. Because Boeing, Starbucks, Microsoft, Amazon, Nirvana and Pearl Jam haven't. I'm happy for my golf loving friends (one of whom is a marshall today), but the ridiculous lockstep between pro golf and privilege and oligarchy is ridiculous.
