commented on Appetite for Destruction
Though it should be apolitical, journalism is the same as a protest movement in the way you describe it in your closer. Exhausted to the point of invigoration, hard work that never finishes. Thanks for doing justice to your trade, Eli.

commented on A Few Things I Noticed About the Washington Coast
Seriously, I normally try to refrain from bashing Slog content... But what the hell kind of blog/news item is this? I spend a little time on the Washington coast, and there's extensive stuff to actually look into for a journalist/blogger. Wtf.

commented on There Was "a Large Sewage Spill" in Lake Washington This Morning
Who cares if its a small percentage of the total volume of water? A 12,000 gallon sewage spill at a public swimming beach fucking matters to me, and if you live here it should matter to you, too.
It might be a drop in a bucket, but would you wash your face from a bucket with a drop of poop in it? The apathy/resignation/indifference to a contaminated public environment, no matter how small the scale, is perplexing.

commented on Will the Outcry Over Cecil the Lion Hurt Conservation Efforts?
Did anybody hear the interview with the head of the Texas Safari Club on the Here And Now radio program? I'm not a person who would ever trophy hunt, and poaching makes me sick, and I like tofu. I thought that interviewer Robin Young's questions showed her (and the liberal anti-hunting crowd's) concerns to be incredibly out of touch with reality compared to the impressively even-keeled and rational responses of her interviewee. Just another case of supposed political identity being insufficient to explain real life situations.
