commented on Never Heard of 'Em
I once read about a young child in Tibet. He was raised in a buddhist monastery hidden in a system of caves high in the mountains. Far from civilization he was to possess a pure, perfect mind, cultivated only by the teachings of the other monks, their ancient books, and the view of the stars and icy peaks out of the window of his simple dormitory. And then a jet airplane flew past and the game was up.
Anna, was that you?
commented on Black Males Disproportionately Ticketed for Smoking Pot in Public
I was with some friends at Alki watching the sunset recently. Hundreds of people were spread out across the spot - families, young people, volleyball players, bikers, rollerskaters, salsa dancers, innumerable races, picnicking, swimming, laughing, stoking their beach fires... What kind of fucked up place is having a drink in that scenario illegal?

- Pete Holmes is pretty fucking cool.
- @1 It's consumption, not just smoking in public that is not allowed.
- The "I don't see why this is a problem, just do it in an alley" crowd seem to be missing the point of legalization.
