Go Shwetak! It's people like Dr. Patel that are turning UW into a technology commercialization powerhouse. Not great for traditionalists who believe universities shouldn't be run like businesses. Take a good look at him, folks. He's the future of UW and our local economy.

Charles, people are not special because they procreate. Please stop. I can't take it anymore. Why does every single person I know with kid(s) act so smug and entitled?

Sonder, I believe we can distance ourselves from our families and friends yet miss and love them anyway. We may have to let people in our lives go due to their self-destructive choices, but we are complex enough beings to feel estrangement and longing, love and disgust at the same time. Do give the human race (including yourself) that much credit.
I agree that chronic inebriates can appear a disgraceful, repulsive mess on the streets...and yet they are still people.
