Wow. Jaded much?
Brady recruited and mobilized supporters and out-organized the other candidates. That's what winning in politics looks like. I'd rather have that kind of passion and energy working for us in Olympia.
As for you sorry saps who think that nothing ever happens in the legislature, I'm with @8. My marriage says otherwise. Plus there's a lot more that gets decided, especially budgets that impact education, transportation, health, and more.
commented on Slog Poll: Leaf Blowers, Yay or Nay?
Another pet peeve: many people who use leaf blowers just blow the leaves onto our city streets, making the mess someone else's problem. If you're going to use blowers, blow them to a place where you can compost or discard.
commented on When Do You Read The Stranger?
Not enough options. I read Savage Love on Tuesday night, since it shows up online. I scan the paper (online only, never touch the paper copy), and read slog daily.
commented on Ed Murray Has People!
This makes complete sense. Since there's a chance the legislature will roll into yet another special session, and Ed Murray can't raise funds while the legislature is in session, it's really the only way his supporters can give his candidacy the visibility it deserves. No other mayoral candidate is prohibited from raising funds. And it's not like no one will be paying attention to what the PAC does; donor names will be disclosed, expenditures will be reported to the PDC.

Been here several times since they opened. I have to agree...the preserved lemon in the tuna sandwich is magic. Try the jamón y queso bocadillo with added bacon. Fabulous!
