commented on Let's Say One Positive Thing About Bill Cosby
Gosh that serial rapist is getting a lot of bad press lately for raping lots of women over the course of his lifetime. I just wanted to take a moment to highlight this one time he did a really good job in his career about 43 years ago because he could use some positive attention... even though I already wrote about this same thing six years ago when it was also completely irrelevant.

commented on Endorsements for the August Primary Election!
I agree with @25... Where is the 32nd LD endorsement? Bellevue, Redmond, and Covington deserve your attention, but Northwest Seattle does not? Chase is the obvious choice, but her opponent is strong enough that Chase needs the shout out!

commented on Finally, a Band From Bremerton That Doesn't Suck
The merger of music posts with the rest of slog would be way less obnoxious if the posts weren't written by whiny shitheels. Isn't it passe in the hipster community yet to pan mildly popular bands? Seriously, so 10 years ago bro.

commented on Pramila Jayapal to Run for State Senate in 37th District
Louis Watanabe is also running. Both seem like particularly outstanding individuals. The 37th is lucky to have them. The senate needs new recruits who have a strength of character that can persevere in Rodney Tom's Chamber of Hell... Or whatever new level of Hell the senate descends to in 2016.

commented on The Morning News: Activists Target Microsoft Shuttle, Plus Other Stuff
Protest Microsoft subsidies, protest a lack of affordable housing, protest Metro cuts, protest institutional racism, protest wealth inequality in this country... any would be more meaningful than standing in front of a bus full of tech workers.
