Mudede ... again ... Still? Meh. I'm used to it, and so be should shiny-minted Seattle newcomers. Mind you, it gets worse. (MUCH worse!) Just hold it in until he explains the demise of the neon Wonder Bread sign – as a plot by "the man", or some B.S. related to high-priced fried chicken off Rainier Ave S.

THIS is magnificent art, Mr. Kevin Cannon. Cheers, and very well played.

Dear Heidi and every other parrot-voiced writer,
Uber IS NOT "ridesharing"; it's just a TAXI in an unmarked cab. And, lest you be confused, Airbnb IS NOT "homesharing"; it's a short-term rental agency for private homeowners. When you charge a monetary fee for a service, it is no longer "sharing"; it's SELLING. Please consider amending the Stranger style guide (on the off chance that it exists.)

"• Stranger editor in chief Tricia Romano regrets that she still hasn't replied to your e-mail. E-mail is a black hole."

Oh, great – now Trish faces a potential lawsuit from Mudede. Lawyer up, kids; there's a complaint a-brewin'.

"On a Friday afternoon while walking west on 11th Avenue..." As maps have since led us to believe, 11th Avenue runs north-south, not east-west. We regret the error.

Actually, if you're crossing the street from the east sidewalk to the west sidewalk, you are, in fact, walking "west" on a north/south street.

DO NOT "clean" your turkey! You'll only contaminate your prep area with turkey juice. Instead, just make sure
1) the bird is fully defrosted in the refrigerator (on the lowest level – and well contained to prevent turkey liquid from cross-contaminating other items);
2) the giblets are removed;
3) and FULLY cook the bird in a preheated oven without stuffing (it's yet another contamination risk);
4) after removing the cooked bird from the oven, let it rest under a loose foil tent for 15-30 minutes, depending on the weight of the bird. If you skip this step, you'll likely lose much of the moisture and flavor of your turkey (whole chicken).

2020? You should be more concerned about the 2018 mid-term elections. Remember 2010 and 2012? Come on, Dan.

"\Normally we really hate fall, because it means that summer is over, and the days are getting shorter, and the darkness is coming, and it's going to be cold for six months. [sic]"

What an idiot.
