Yeah, it's a copy of that.

I think you give the police department too much of a pass. How often in our fair city do people in the predominantly white north part of the city complain about the cops not coming when they call? I'm pretty certain they have the ability to assign priority to police calls, so they could have told them that they could have a cop call them back later to take a report, as is often done in non-urgent situations if there are more pressing cop matters, rather than actually send out a team of FOUR cops.

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!

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.
