commented on These Republicans Are Waging a War on Choice in Washington State. Tell Them to Stop.
This is a great article and great call to action, but it falls short in helping Stranger readers take action.
"Step two: Call and e-mail these anti-choice lawmakers and tell them you're watching and will work to defeat them. Step three: Work to defeat them."
OK, great ... we're with you, we'll call/email them ... but what should we say? Most of The Stranger's audience isn't represented by these people – a bit of prompting and "next steps" on how to take action would help your readers. Just a suggestion.

@2 So what part about wearing a helmet do you have a problem with?
With how shitty Seattle drivers are, and with the annual cyclist fatalities of people who WERE wearing helmets, I'm not really sure why some cyclists still have an issue with having to wear a helmet.
Seems pretty straightforward to me, but then again I guess if you have a really sweet hairdo, those helmets can really cramp your style.
