Is Kickstarter the right way to deal with this? How about some public shame for FedEx? Did you (Brendan) talk to their PR department to ask about this? I bet a few strategic calls would get them to change their mind about the cost of replacement.

More recently, the DEA created a Facebook account in someone's name to ensnare her friends. http://money.cnn.com/2014/10/20/technolo…

Nasty stuff, this.

@1 No, no, no. She got a transfusion from someone who survived in the hopes of transferring that immunity. We still don't really know (and may never know) exactly how she contracted it in the first place, but it was when she treated the patient in Texas.
Sep 8, 2014 dsz123 commented on Working Mom Going to Prison for Getting Her Teen Daughter an Abortion.
I believe this is not an unknown side effect of the drug. Per this NYTimes Magazine article of last weekend (http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/31/magazi…), it seems they could have avoided all trouble by just saying the daughter was having a miscarriage -- treatment is identical.

Very unfortunate, for sure, that by telling the truth, she wound up in legal trouble, especially considering there is state-mandated lying involved in getting a legal abortion.
Sep 5, 2014 dsz123 commented on LTE: Why I'm Wrong for Parlaying a Cyclist's Death Into a Piece About Underfunded Bike-Safety Projects.
Are you serious, Jason? You are using the very tactics you decry in your own letter...

"What happens to those who cannot bike?" Well, their needs aren't going to be addressed in a master *bicycle* plan, are they?

"Are other forms of transportation even suffering due to these changes?" Again, probably not going to be found in the *bicycle* plan.

"Are there legitimate concerns over bicyclists' behavior?" Of course, but as *you* say, you blame the individual, not the city planners, for bad behavior.

Get real. If you want to live in a city of gridlock, have a great time, just don't stand in the way of actual planning (something Seattle desperately needs more of, by the way) by spreading misinformation and hype of your own.

Have you been to Lick yet? Bad name, amazing ice cream, and just up the hill from the Stranger offices at 15th and Pine inside 'Zaw. Michael is a former chef, and has a knack for odd-but-delicious flavor combinations.
Jan 21, 2013 dsz123 commented on White Vegans Making Life Hard for Poor Peruvians.
Also, I didn't see in the story where they said the vegans were white.

I guess that's exactly why NPR picked up the story and ran with it in the first place, without actually fact-checking more completely. It just sounds so good -- entitled (white?) people making life hard for far-away native population by stealing their staple food -- it's hard to imagine it's not true. But it doesn't seem like it is...

There's some question about the accuracy of the NPR story... http://bearwitnesspictures.blogspot.com/…

$3.75 for a cold piece of pizza? I'll take my business elsewhere, thanks.
