It's not very popular.

I am inclined to agree, but am starting to wonder how many times one forgives a person before I'm just an idiot and a fool. When does one draw a line? Aargh.

I will note to readers that you can submit comments on this plan via Waterfront Seattle's website Fnarf links in his post, and would encourage folks to do so.

Yes! Join up and give monthly! I joined as soon as I got my First Real Job With Health Insurance, as PP had been my main source of health care up until that point, all sliding scale and lovely, and wanted to give back. I give $15 a month to the PP Action Fund (national campaign), and $15 a month to PP of the Great NW. They will not and do not scoff at whatever amount you give!

@20 YES. This time of year I get THE MOST HOMESICK.

Oh fun! It's like the new going to Africa to be a missionary for the young, hip, and urban set!

I have a few friends who own their houses and rent out rooms. This is probably nowhere near on their radar. Will they have to register their rooms for rent?

For me and many of my friends, renting rooms in houses were an easy and affordable first way to rent, not having any prior rental history after college. I'd really hate to see that option go away.

Or heck, can they implement some kind of fee the developers could pay towards transit improvement that is slightly less than the cost of putting in a parking garage? A per-unit fee of some sort? It makes sense to me to make the developers pay some of the cost of the transit their development is relying on. Letting them off scott-free gives me the grumps.

@13 Exactly what I was thinking. This feels a little cart before the horse considering all the doom and gloom and threats of major service cuts to Metro that seem to come with every single budget cycle. Maybe this makes a little more sense around the light rail corridors, but over here in the Ballard area, it makes me nervous. Improve funding for Metro and somehow better guarantee that budget, or hell, get behind some kind of actual rapid transit and see it to completion (both north-south AND east-west corridors; the 48 and 44 are HARDLY rapid transit). Then implement these kinds of exemptions.

I'm with 9 & 10. There's a lot of blame on the woman here, but isn't part of being GGG BOTH partners being attentive to each other's sexual desires and needs? I mean, expecting him to give up his fantasies, is yes, absolutely ridiculous, and if she can't accept that, then yes they need to break the hell up. However, I don't see why it's unreasonable to ask that there be some people who are off-limits, and that sometimes, he indulges HER fantasies, those him-and-her only fantasies. It sounds like she's done plenty of work indulging his.

Dan, Thank you so much for this project. I grew up in a pretty backwater place. I'm straight, but it was the kind of place where anyone different is suspect. I got out, but I had a good friend who didn't go away for college. He came out during our senior year of high school. The following fall, while I was starting college, I got the call from a friend that that he had killed himself.

I really really really wish someone had been able to convince him that it does get better. I can't tell you how wonderful I think this project is. I really hope it helps.
