@fnarf & @18, I'm in 230. Under cover in the rain, but still standing and still close to the action. First year w/ season tickets and not regretting it one bit.

@12 The New England loss was a sad showing, but we were on the road with a couple of star players a hemisphere away and playing up a few inexperienced players. Our record so far this season speaks for itself. And sorry to nag, but I bought match pass tickets last year (3 game pack) and it was $45. $15 a game is super affordable IMHO. And my season tickets (16 matches + friendly) averaged out to $26.50 a game. And considering they're far better seats, they're still affordable.

@12 Weird, I watched that same game and recall the Sounders winning 4-0. You might want to check your facts.

@5 I've not seen your name in the bylines before and I assume it's because you've posted on Line-Out until the recent merger into Slog.

Anyway, I look forward to reading your old posts and look forward to your future musings. Your non-review-review of these films made me so much more interested in watching them. I like a good story; and reading how these movies make you feel after seeing them, and when thinking about them is far more important that any critical dissection of the film could ever provide.

I talked to my dad for a good hour today, and it was really nice. I'm sorry you aren't able to do the same, but I truly and honestly thank you for reminding me that I still have that option, every day, until I don't anymore.

Thank you.

Thank you for this. This absolutely reminds me of my dad, who has survived two heart attacks and was recently diagnosed with diabetes, yet continues to smoke.

He's also in California and I had to leave work 5 years ago the last time he had a heart attack to see him in the hospital.

I'm fortunate, because I've been given so much extra time with him; but I definitely take it for granted.

I will call him tonight.

Is ragu @8 a satirical account to dig on the ultimate buzzkill troll raku?

That's how I read that.

If so; well done.

If not; well, I'm done.

@9 I get what you're saying. I ride a Honda Metropolitan and now have $40 tab fees with the likelihood of them going up to $60.

Guess how I voted?

"YES."

Why?

Because this shit isn't just about me. I have $7 a month insurance and burn about a gallon of gasoline a month. Less in the winter and more in the summer. So my vehicle costs me $11 a month. With tabs, $14.25; with a prospect of that going up to $15.75.

Big fucking deal.

More important than my $1.50 a month is a reliable metro system. More important is customers being able to make it in to my shop. More important is my employees being able to get to work on time and home at a reasonable hour. And this isn't just those who ride the bus; people driving will be caught in worse traffic for longer periods of time. Burning more gas while idling.

Don't be so selfish. You're already saving money on your vehicles other costs of ownership.
Apr 9 Bored@School commented on The Actual Economics of Cities Raising the Minimum Wage For Every Employee, Tipped and Untipped (Spoiler Alert: Things Turn Out Fine).
Why is it all-or-nothing? No one is saying "$15 per hour unless it's a tipped employee, at which point let's regress to $3 an hour for them!"

$15 an hour can be a lot for some businesses; namely coffee shops, restaurants, and very small businesses.

Why not tie the tipped minimum wage to the $15 per hour. Using something like 80%, we'd end up with tipped employees making $12 p/h + their tips. If their reported tips (those on credit card, and/or pooled cash) don't put them over the $15 threshold then the onus to make up the difference falls on the business.

Then if we maintain that the minimum wage as being tied to the cost of living, as the $15 increases over time, so does the tipped employee minimum wage, because it's an establish 80%, rather than a set dollar amount.

Did you read a different story than the one you linked to on the UW cherry tree story? They aren't being transplanted, they were cut down because they're old and potentially sick, and the architecture dept. will make them into furniture. They will plant saplings to replace them.
Mar 28 Bored@School commented on The Minimum Wage Symposium: A Lot of Data and a Couple of Fights.
Why not a compromise that ties tipped employees tip credit to the new proposed min wage and any future increase?

So, min wage for hours worked if you're a tipped employee would be tied to 80% of non-tipped employees (min wage). In this instance, $12 p/h. Then, during payroll, reported tips (not assumed ones based on ticket sales) are factored into overall pay. If hours/overall pay do not meet or exceed $15 p/h, then the employer is on the hook to pay the difference.
Mar 28 Bored@School commented on Jim Pugel's Gracious Farewell to the SPD.
@13 in his interim leadership position he admonished, punished, and even fired some of the bad cops. The new Chief took only a few days to reverse some of those punishment under the leadership and orders of Murray.

THEY are part of the problem. Good cops can't effect change if they aren't in a position to do so. When Pugel had the opportunity to show true leadership, he did. He might be part of the system, but he was the part of the system that recognized change had to be made. Not so much with his successor.

So, again, fuck Murray and his cronie dickholes. I won't be surprised if a corruption scandal breaks during Murray's term in office.
