commented on Low-Paid Sea-Tac Airport Contract Workers Form Union, Demand Negotiations
Wow, the knuckle-draggers are out in force here this morning. @3, "why don't they just get a different job" is completely non-sensical. Many of these Menzies and DAL Global workers do move on to other jobs, but then the positions they vacate are filled by others, and the problem of underpay at that position remains.

The carnage of the automobile continues. I believe the costs of "accidents" like this should be included in all road and vehicle infrastructure projects. Because they aren't, the costs of autocentric projects are artificially deflated, relative to public transit.
My heart goes out to these victims snd their families.

I also think a LOT of progressives were scared to death of the poll #'s a month or two ago showing McKenna leading in King County. Perhaps this was enough to spark an early rush to rally the troops that is now registering in the polls.
Let's just hope these new #'s don't breed complacency on the part of progressives. McKenna, awful as he is, is still the GOP's best shot at the state house in decades. This race will be insanely close.
