commented on Hey, Bill Bryant. Your Party Is Going Nuts Over #Brexit. You?
There are only two kinds of Republicans -- those that denounce Trump and pledge never to vote for him, and all the others who through action or inaction are entirely comfortable with Trump in the White House. Bill Bryant is firmly rooted in this latter group.
commented on Bernie Sanders Is Still Running for President
His followers should file to run of public office? This is the middle of June already. In WA the filing date to get your name on the ballot has long passed. And in any state, credible campaigns rarely begin this late in the political season. Just rhetorical noise from the Bern.
commented on Hillary Clinton Has Already Won the Democratic Nomination
Bernie said he would be in the fight until the last vote is counted. The last vote will be counted next Tuesday at the DC primary. Then he should graciously offer his support to the winner of the primary process, just as Hillary did 8 years ago.
If he doesn't, he will prove his campaign is no longer about his issues but rather his ego. And that would be unfortunate.
commented on Sound Transit Board Approves Changes to ST3 to Speed Up Light Rail Projects
Light rail to Everett and Tacoma makes sense if you broaden your focus beyond Seattle-centric commute trips. Those two cities are growing and can grow some more, as can the urban villages around intermediate stations.
With major destinations in those cities, trains can haul commuters in both directions. Rail transit can and will stimulate more higher-density development in those two cities.
