Letters this week sounded like the stuff you read on Dear Prudence.

commented on That’s Kind of Racist, Dude
Stopped reading as soon as I saw the reference to the Colbert fake 'foundation'. Someone who does indeed believe that such episode is a display of racism (rather than a denouncing of it) simply does not understand what racism is nor its manifestations. Disappointing.

commented on How Do You Humanely Hunt and Kill a Whale?
Two things here. One, how do you know whales are not killed humanely? Two, if whaling can be made sustainable and is still culturally important for some cultures, then why should they stop? Why impose your values on them?

commented on The Man Seattle Police Killed Yesterday: 26-Year-Old Chef Cody Spafford
@63 Thanks for the videos. I always advocate for the use of non-lethal means, and SPD has a long history of police brutality, but at least these are eye opening in what an officer might expect when being charged at by a suspect with a knife.
That said, when it comes to SPD I am always suspicious of whether things are the way they claim them to be. Police in this city is just infamous.

commented on Total Compensation Is the Only Way to Raise Workers' Income and Preserve Your Local Favorite Small Business
How about banning tipping, raising prices of food accordingly, and providing a stable income to waiters? Seriously, if a meal costs $10 and I have to add $1.50 as a base tip, why is it that the meal cannot cost $11.50? I would have already paid that much, plus as a customer I would know exactly how much I'd have to pay in the end.
This "total compensation" thing is just bullshit to avoid paying your employees what they deserve.
