commented on Conlin Will Retire Instead of Face Sawant Again in Newly Drawn Liberal District
@30, hey brilliant, White Center and South Park are in District 1. Their needs will be crushed by the monied folks with the big mountain views near the water.
My vote for Sawant was a protest vote against Conlin. I knew he would win, but wanted to send a message. I was happy to support Sawant as one of 9 voices, but would change my perspective if she was the only representative for my neighborhood.

Can I get a Free Seattle Times t-shirt? Seriously, no way I'm paying $4/week for content. Maybe $1/week, but even then I'd likely work around it through other news sources.
commented on Did City Attorneys Make a Convincing Case to Let You Opt-Out of Yellow Pages Delivery?
Question: where is the settlement money coming from and how much did it cost the city to defend the suit? Just wondering how many tax dollars we've spent on this. For the record, I opted out of the YP list the minute I got the opportunity. Those things go straight into the recycle bin (like I have that much room in my place to store a pile of useless paper).
commented on Gondolas: Yea or Nay?
Stop screwing around with our transit money already. When can I get a real damn Seattle subway? Something that doesn't get stuck in traffic and can move people quickly across the entire city. Are we capable of this or are the folks in charge just f&cking around?
