It's also about the laziest, "dumb"est & pointless possible parody one could do about Starbucks. You had all the money for a store and THAT'S what you came up with???

For all it's issues, I repeatedly tell my conservative, Obama-hating or government-fearing friends and colleagues that they should be doing everything they can to get the ACA to work well. Obamacare is likely the last chance private health insurance has to be the primary insurers of most Americans. If it fails the alternative won't be going back to the pre-ACA system, but it will be further expansion of Medicaid (or Medicare) to cover the uninsured which IS socialized insurance.

The Republicans need to stop their Obama-hating and start loving the ACA and make it work or their worst nightmares really will happen.

I'm pretty sure Putin is not an ideologic socialist. There are BIG difference between socialism, communism, fascism and totalitarianism, but to certain members of the commuinity (Republicans) they mash them all into one big box of badness. Canada is socialist. Germany is socialist. Even the USA is socialist; we have a nationalized retirement plan and healthcare for the elderly as well as a (inadequate) safety net for the poor. It's an ideologic balance to unregulated capitalism and all of the most livable countries in the world have a balance between both.

Misread that... Obviously Princess Leia dated JOHN Belushi, not his horrible brother. Sorry, nobody hot or not in their right mind would date Jim Belushi! My Bad.

For what it's worth, Belushi DID actually date Carrie Fischer in the late '70s and she was pretty hot then. So the "Fat Ugly Funny Guy/Skinny Hot Girl" archetype has something of a precedence.

Hotel Ballard is HIDEOUS! I hadn't been to Ballard in a number of months until 2 weeks ago, and I couldn't believe that ugly suburban McMansion-style hotel was the final product.

Also, as pretty as this restaurant group's restaurants are, their food is frequently bland (Poquito's) or terrible (Von Trapp's & McLeod's). To be fair, I've had a good couple of dinners at Bastille's, so they will probably sucker me in to going here too..

Sirena Gelato in Kirkland is really good. My overall favorite in the area is Mora on Bainbridge Island (got one in Poulsbo too).
