For the details of WHY you should vote against EVERY incumbent on the Seattle School Board, read the Seattle Times' endorsements of them:
AND THEN, read the COMMENTS for the truth about the utter chaos that is Seattle Public Schools. You don't know half of the shit that's gone on:
Where is the Stranger when this shit needs to be exposed? The Seattle Times is completely owned by the education establishment so they won't write about it, and the P-I online? Who reads that?
Oh and I'm voting against the Families and Education Levy. SACRILEGE! I know, but Seattle Public Schools should quit squandering tens of millions of dollars before they get another dime out of me.
And I'm voting against the regressive $60 additional car tab tax. And so is everyone else. BOO FUCKING HOO. You coke-snorting hipsters on Capitol Hill need to understand that poor people DO own cars, because they depend on them to get from their crappy neighborhoods to their shitty jobs where and when the buses don't go and never will. Not everyone has the luxury to live where you don't need a car and can walk everywhere. I've given up on the bus; I don't have time to spend 1.5 hours to travel 8 miles. I shouldn't have to pay the same for tabs as someone who owns a $100,000 Mercedes. Fuck that shit.
@48: "Looks like research journalism is no longer a requirement for articles in The Stranger..."
This fucking paper is worthless. I've been reading it since the beginning, but mostly out of habit for the past few years. Really, I get more info from the comments section where astute readers deconstruct every stupid paragraph written by the lazy kids who are just playing "journalist" without doing the actual legwork.
