commented on What's Wrong With Capitol Hill
Dominic, would it be beneath you to even mention what your problems with this study (or Michael Wells) are before you launch into personal attack mode? Do you disagree with the Chamber of Commerce's goal (whatever you perceive that to be) as an appropriate goal for the neighborhood, or do you disagree that the study's recommendations (if implemented) would achieve that goal, or do you think the data used to arrive at those recommendations was inaccurate, or what?
Note that the Capitol Hill Blog seems to have read the study as explaining *why* "high-end and big box department stores will likely never be part of Capitol Hill’s commercial core", rather than whatever you think it is.
Did Twitter Did NOT Kill This Young Man
The update, and some of the comments that inspired it, are as content-free as the original post in a sense -- it's like people are so used to working without facts on the internet, they no longer understand what constitutes one. None of the articles states that his death has been established to have occurred at the time he disappeared or any other time before the bombing (though that is the overwhelmingly likely conclusion, obviously). It is, like, ontologically possible for someone to have been missing since March AND ALSO to have died after April 15. Jumping to a different (even if less stupid) conclusion from the one originally suggested is still just that.
commented on Tiny Apartments Are America's Future
@8, but do apodments and apartments actually rent at the same rate per sq ft? When last I did the math apodments seemed to be significantly more expensive per sq ft than regular apartments, even if cheaper overall because so much smaller.
commented on Friday Photo Fun: Mom Mullets!
OMG, West Coast.
By the way, I know Christopher was all excited to put the words "Sweet-Ass Rack" on the cover, but I think the combination of that headline with the taken-from-behind photo sends a mixed message, like it was attempting to refer to the subject's "Sweet Ass-Rack" but the hyphen migrated.

Napoleon XIV (who seems to have declined to make the transition to registered comments) cracked me up repeatedly & was perhaps the funniest of all the old-time commenters.
