Poolside in Chico, California underneath a cloudless, 84°F sky. Reading Slog, streaming KEXP. All the best parts of Seattle without the vitamin D deficiency!

Hey Tom Carr,
It is very hypocritical of you to blather on about Community Court when you're not willing to fund it. Community Court is a fantastic example of progressive, proactive criminal rehabilitation. It is a "Seattle value" that we can all be proud of. Instead of renewing my employment contract for a measly $28k and no benefits, you spent $15 MILLION on a private law firm to keep some basketball team from skipping town. I worked on the Belltown streets with your Community Court defendants for a year and a half, and it's pretty obvious to all of us where your priorities are. (Not us.)
Your former employee and Pete Holmes supporter

@11, you're right, he is a bit of a libertarian, but more importantly, he's a satirist. I don't agree with most of his opinions on global warming and transport policy either, but he's got a brilliant way of portraying cars and the culture that surrounds them. I say Clarkson approves because Mr. VonTesmar lifted this idea straight out of Top Gear when he tested the Nissan GT-R in Japan. Clarkson wore a Bill Oddie mask while speeding through every speed camera between Osaka and Tokyo.
