Wonderful post. I'm in total agreement. As a side note, I was hit in a crosswalk last week by a car and the police gave me the ticket because I was in front of the driver and the police felt that I should not have been there. The quote from the police officer was "pedestrian right of way in crosswalks is a widely held misconception" Bravo SPD!

If you work overseas for a corporation, you are subject to double taxation on your wages. Since corporations are people, just subject them to double taxation here too. That way, Apple can pay its 12% in Ireland and 35% in the U.S. and everybody wins.

We haven't even had a caucus or a primary yet. All of this talk is to attempt to pick candidates that support the corporate owned media and their interests. I think that Clinton is the stronger candidate, but see all of this wagon circling as anti-democratic. Small d.

I go to Salzburg about twice a year and people do dress like that. You can get all those clothes on most street corners but also in neighboring towns where tourists don't go. I know the writer thinks it's all Krautrock and "Book of Mormon" but the Weinacht Markt in every town still trumpets that style, if slightly more redneck than the movie version.

I can't believe there are no comments on this post. I think the idea of a new highest building is wonderful. I'm delighted with Seattle's building boom. And I find it poetic that this represents faith in Seattle and in the future. Nice dig on the Greece economic grind too.

The biggest production going on right now is "Z Nation" which is shot in Spokane and environs. There is quite a bit of bipartisan support for film production, both sides of the aisle. The state only has limited resources in order to force Governor Inslee to do what it wants. It's all make believe; theater even, that's why there is so much support. However, most of this production is just searching for a tax loophole and if we want to provide it, there will be production here. If not, production will go somewhere else. I work in the industry and even I am ambivalent about the social costs.

This should include press conferences and any and all showboating that is more typical of the Murray/Burgess camp. Fair is fair.

Blame Uber and quit taking all the losses on Uber's business plan. Uber is not your friend, dear under-employed driver with a fancy car.

Pretty crazy. I'm an upper middle class white who rides every day, breaks all kinds of rules, and has never gotten a ticket in all my years. I know that the plural of anecdote is not data, but I don't even fear the police, I don't even think of them, even when I see them, when I'm on my bicycle.
