Wait, isn't pyrethrin a pesticide that can be used on organic crops?

And doesn't smoking cause cancer?

@25 ummm, well, let's see, the American Association of Pediatrics has a policy position that religious exemptions should be repealed but a frothing-at-the-mouth commenter on slog thinks I'm ignorant, and doing harm equivalent to those not vaccinating their children, for saying the same thing.

@20 Don't agree with your equating this to condom use during the HIV epidemic. Unless it was rape, not using condoms is a mutual decision between consenting adults that know the risk and HIV is a difficult virus to accidentally transmit (like, to someone sitting next to you). This is about parents free-riding on, and compromising, the herd immunity of the society they live in, for no defensible reason, with the end result of putting vulnerable people who need that herd immunity at serious risk.

I’ll leave it to the health care professionals (and you) to be the good cop and form a circle of trust and sing kumbaya at these people, the rest of us just need an initiative to remove the personal and religious exemptions. Or at least, not allow those kids in public schools and, hey, make it a felony for them to be at any location with more than 1000 people – you want the “freedom” not to vaccinate, fine, send your kid to a private school (after all, freedom isn’t free.) and stay at home and watch that sporting event on TV. When you make it difficult/painful to get an exemption the vaccination rates will increase back to a safe level. Oh yeah, and reaching out. Do that too. Have fun with it.

@21 – yep – both political extremes are guilty of this personal exemption bullshit. Two of the top five counties with incomplete vaccination rates in WA are rabidly Democrat (San Juan and Jefferson) and the rest of the top five are made up of the Republican nutjobs in the NE (Okanogan, Pend Oreille and Ferry).

@8 WTF?

I mean, I agree, anti-vaxxers shouldn't be hated. They should be publicly identified so we can shame and shun them. But not hated.

Bill Mahar also had some insightful and well reasoned commentary about vaccines recently: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7yvI0tu…

hahahaha. just kidding. He even starts the show with "I'm not an anti-vaxxer but......". Take down here:

@16 subpar? Jolly Roger is one of the best Xmas beers on the market and their Islander Pale is a great session beer (and the dry hopped is even better). And at least they can make a very drinkable lager unlike most microbreweries in the NW.

So this Terminator movie is a crossover with Doctor Who?! Awesome! From the promotional image it appears that the Doctor has upgraded his sonic screwdriver.

@21 I think a justification could be made to swap the order of away goals and overtime (i.e. do the overtime first), especially since this is a playoff series at the end of the season and not being played during the regular season (e.g. European Champions League). It's still following the basic rules just modifying them slightly. Which is something I think the MLS should continue to do. After all, if it's a good idea then the rest of the world might take it up (e.g. "shaving cream" for setting the wall).

But, yeah, I agree, it's not going to convert people. But then again I don't care cuz there aren't that many people on the planet that need converting ;-)

@10 I'd love to see that as well - away goal rule but only after extra time. In a playoff format that would make it more interesting, e.g. Seattle would of had to play Dallas for another 30min (without Alonso...*shudder*) which would have left the winner a little more depleted for the first LA game. Anything that rewards teams for attacking is a good thing imo.





@5 what 14 said - I think we mainly need to bolster the back line - losing Yedlin, Gonzales and Scott getting old, and generally no one to sub in (Anibaba...). But that's better than the end of last year when we seemed to need a whole new team....
