@27 "Eddie Two-Pockets Murray" has a nice ring to it.

I hope the FBI tell him to fuck off and investigates some real labor suppression in Seattle: WAL⭐️MART hired Lockheed fuckin' Martin to bust up organizing attempts in violation of federal labor law. (See LM Wisdom)
Apr 30 GlibReaper commented on Ahead of May Day, Seattle Police Blame Protesters for Injury Caused by Police Weapon.
Basic lack of accountability with regards to accounting for number of munitions checked out and subsequently inventoried. Huge fine from ATF for each infraction, but pressure's not likely to come from that side of the blue line.
Mar 21 GlibReaper commented on The Seattle Times Editorial Board Wants More Parking Around Light Rail Stations.
@11 there is parking at the UW which is currently the far end of the line.

What seems to be missing here is EV charging at every parking lot along the way. The UW lot has 2 charging stations but there are zero anywhere south of I-90 and east of I-5. The parking lots near ST stations would be great spots for these and will be necessary if we're going to decarbonize all transportation in the city.
Feb 25 GlibReaper commented on Morning News: Seattle Begins Enforcing Dog Laws Next Week, Seattle Has Better Air Than Portland, Seattle's Biospheres.
Beacon Hill is neatly situated between two areas with relatively bad air quality: the Duwamish River Valley and the Rainier Valley. The air flowing over the top of a hill is less likely to suffer a thermal inversion and trap pollutants, so focusing on that monitoring station and ignoring the more polluted valleys on either side is not fair or accurate.
Feb 4 GlibReaper commented on Four Seattleites Want Answers from Twitter About "State-Sponsored Actors" Trying to Hack Into Their Accounts.
@2 I hope that this is true, but if Twitter is not being coerced to remain silent by the government of the United States of America then it should say so unequivocally. Leaving people in the dark with only a vague warning is a gruesome thing for Twitter's PR to do.

All of this strengthens my resolve to use strong & effective encryption / anonymization technologies and teach others to do the same.

One of the "gems" hidden in this budget is $250k to come up with a "strategy" for public WiFi in Seattle. Because the city won't be providing wired broadband, there's at least a chance they will expand their current offerings of Internet access from libraries, community centers, and the smattering of government buildings to something more effective.

I wonder if this will have any bearing on gas pump warming labels. That's another effort that Plant for the Planet kids are pushing.
Nov 2, 2015 GlibReaper commented on Guest Editorial: I'm a Young Voter, and the "Honest Elections" Measure Got Me Involved in Democracy Again.
I've just seen a pair of mailers encouraging young people to vote more consistently. Trouble is the person being shamed about their voting record just turned 18 in time for the last election. Looks like Honest Elections Seattle needs to check their data a bit better!
