@1 All fixed blade knives are banned in Seattle. Folding knives limited to 3.5". And, somewhat to general amazement, you can't have a slingshot either...

@32 Until you review the proposed 'replacement' viaduct designs and realize it is not an apple to apple comparison. The replacement option results in a much larger structure, effectively tripling the footprint around the Battery St. tunnel area - by memory.

Thank Slog for this the staff's laser focus on this evolving issue.

@12 Your point is more an argument against the design of Rainier than pro Thompson speedway.

And, frankly, it would have had a very significant impact on the Arboretum. Plus, the 'NIMBYS' were generally folks who's homes were directly impacted by eminent domain. I would say they had the right to frame the discussion.

@13 -
"I would like to suggest, as gently as I can, that if you are voting as an act of self-gratification, if you do not understand the role that voting in fact plays in a constitutional republic, and if you need Lena Dunham to tell you why and how you should be voting — you should not vote. If you get your politics from actors and your news from television comedians — you should not vote."

That seems to meet the definition of a call for disenfranchisement. And the author does seem to go to great lengths to call out PP, their blog, and by extension their target audience (which would presumably be women since the blog is called 'Women are Watching.'

@12 - Exactly.

Every session on the Master Bike Plan I've attended has stressed education and how to teach everyone to use the new infrastructure. And although I agree the signage is confusing, at the very least it represents an effort to address the issue. Hopefully these efforts will continue to evolve and improve within SDOT over time.

@11 - If you really want the answers to your questions, there is a link at the caring site that allows you to contact the organizer. I'm sure he would love to answer your questions and address any other heartfelt concerns you may care to share.
