FWIW: I buy 4 bottles at PCC to get a 10% discount. I need to buy 6 bottles at QFC to get 10%, but they have occasional deals that go to 15%, especially on Washington wines.
commented on Man Accused of Killing Someone in a Movie Theater for Texting Had Just Used His Own Phone to Text
Speaking of the shooting itself (not this latest wrinkle) I just don't think someone discreetly texting in a movie theater should be considered such a big deal faux pas. A phone conversation (or any conversation) is surely distracting, but in this era we should all be able to handle a small amount of a tiny screen near us. The big screen and big sound of the main movie should really be enough to keep our attention.
And yes I know there were posted rules against texting.
If the texting is constant and accompanied by notification sounds, that's of course a different story.
commented on KING 5's "Spell Check at City Hall"
Yeah that "K" was obviously stolen. Seems like the NewsDolts were a little too happy to find a problem that wasn't there.
Always good to see Joni Balter insert her smarmy ass opinions.
But I guess I can be picky too: Murray claims to "city of 11,000 people." Maybe there are 11,000 employees, but the city has more than 11,000 people.
