commented on You Don't Know Either, Amanda Palmer
I have always thought she was crap but figured I was the only one. We saw here a bunch of years ago as part of a music and comedy review in Boston along with Reggie Watt - she was impressive (but then she was only on the stage for 20 minutes). We went to see her at the Showbox and left half way though when she went into her second rant about the lack of audience appreciation and people not paying artists enough. Nothing she does interests me any more.

commented on Accused Officers Have History of Alleged Misconduct
OK, OK, OK, I thought we were under a DOJ consent decree complete with a new SPD 'overseerer' to stop this kind of nonsense. What/where/how does this further policing in Seattle or contribute to anyone's safety. Sign me: tired of this shit.

commented on Management, Not Unions, to Blame for Twinkie Baker's Demise
This is complete bullshit. The company, brand and product have been completely trampled over the last 20 years. There is a strike, yes, and the strike will result in higher costs, but to say that the end of Twinkies is because of the strike is silly. Twinkies are ending because times have changed.

commented on Takers, Makers, and Givers
The whole idea of bankers and other rich folk as "makers" is bogus anyway. Trickle-down economics doesn't work. Rich people hoard money so others don't have to. Instead of Karl Rove's 'job creators', we simply need to understand them as 'wealth hoarders'.
