Aug 18 theophrastus commented on There's a Horrifying Statue of Donald Trump in Capitol Hill.
Seems a bit complimentary around the hair and hands. Artist is probably a trump fan-boy.

Montgomery Burns: "And, uh, incidentally, thanks for not making fun of my genitalia."
Marge: "I thought I did."

Take a 'journalistic' walk down the prepared food aisle of any grocery. In general we should find grist for a story in the shorter list of what you might stomach than what you might not. And/or stick with the produce, and if you're of a wont, the meat departments - the so-call: fresh foods.

Where is Councilperson Sawant on this City Light imbroglio? It's like ...she's off somewhere getting married, or some-such?

Aug 12 theophrastus commented on KPLU Has New Call Letters.
nahhh... KNKX clearly refers to the San Diego Miramar Naval Air Station, CA. But we all like this, don't we? We want the alternative to KUOW to be [Barry White voice mode] Kink-aaah, (in fact, let's have it with less @2"shitty midday soft-jazz..." and more Barry White)
Aug 5 theophrastus commented on Melania Trump Denies She Broke US Immigration Laws.
To those here who would assert the "candidates' families are off limits" rule (which is so often broken) they should strain themselves to realize this item has functionally nothing to do about Melania herself. Trump went off early and often on "illegal immigrants" and then it turns out that he likely married one. That the wife du-jour was what Melania has agreed to be is only the stupidity of those who did the background checks for outstanding issues with the candidate, ("uh... we akually didn't do any of dose"). In zero political time Melania will survive just fine; hell, she'll probably get more 'coverage' for herself this way, (following the post-candidacy divorce). No INS agents will be visiting her, however much they should; the "wall" of lawyers will protect her nicely.
Aug 4 theophrastus commented on Oh, Good, Now Donald Trump is Getting Intelligence Briefings.
Today's NYT op-ed page has a worthy dark-humor column based on this little nightmare.
Aug 3 theophrastus commented on The Morning News: Primary Election Results Are in, Alleged Fraud Scheme Targeted Chinese UW Students.
Some proud The Slog intern must work the calculator to eventually give us the dollars-per-vote cost of the Jayapal campaign. Sweet-zombie-jebuz: nightly prime time TV ads plus i've about filled my recycle bin twice with the direct mailings... egads there's some big money in this one.

hormones and guns don't mix; perhaps even worse than anything else and guns.
Jul 22 theophrastus commented on All The Awkward Trump Father/Daughter Touching At the RNC.
Incest aside... red face, wide-pupils, and paranoia; this man is addicted to amphetamines. (mind you, there is an occasional precedent for this in the political arenas)
