Isn't former 3rd district candidate Rod Hearne on the board of ERW?

Big talk from someone named Wm.

Yeah, cause who knows more about teaching--a computer geek billionaire businessman who went to Lakeside, or someone who has been teaching actual students in public schools for years? Billionaire, obviously.

"Harrell would be a better council member in the new districts system, in which he'd be responsible only to South Seattle rather than the whole city."
You have an odd concept of the district system. District representatives on the city council still govern the entire city. They are *answerable* to the district that elects them, and need to make certain the concern of that district are heard and addressed, but they are still *responsible* for the entire city. I's not like Harrell becomes the mayor of District 2 and has no impact anywhere else.
If you didn't think he was doing a good job on city council before, how would that same performance be better now?

To be specific, the picture in the John Wilson write-up is school board candidate Rick Burke. Really, all white men do not look alike.
Sep 28, 2015 fruitbat commented on San Francisco Banned Tour Drivers From Driving and Narrating Simultaneously. Can Seattle Do the Same?.
My memory from taking one of those tours years ago with visiting relatives was that there was a driver plus a guide. False memory, or did they change that to save money?

@27--there IS a Jersey barrier median from Denny to around 50th, except for the bridge.

@7 Wider lanes don't keep the wheels attached, but a good median barrier could keep an out-of-control vehicle out of oncoming traffic.
Sep 21, 2015 fruitbat commented on The Seattle Public Library Foundation Is Paying $365,000 for the Library's "Rebranding".
The question isn't whether the designers should have been paid, but why the Library decided to spend lots of money on "re-branding" at all.
Although there is also the question of why the new logo choices are all meaningless shite.
Sep 10, 2015 fruitbat commented on A Performer Quitting a Production During the Run Can Be a Theater's Worst Nightmare.
Did the theater that was hiring the bailer know that he would be bailing on a show that would suffer greatly from his absence? If so, did they care?
Did he try to get accommodation? Or did he say nothing for fear of losing out?
Not making judgements; there's just a dimension missing from the story.
