Even in "rainy" Seattle it's unusual to see rain extending all over Western Washington on the weather radar, it's even crept East of the Cascades this afternoon.

I've got a nice beef stew simmering on the stove now.

We've got an awesome brewing scene here and the vintners have a twenty plus year head start. It's not surprising that the wine is great, especially if you jump from the $8-$15 bottles to $30 bottles.

Isn't there a style guide at Stranger HQ. Everybody knows that proper style is "won teh internets".

I guess anti-social behavior in our tourist centers and commuter routes downtown is acceptable after all.

Great, more discourse on guns by people who know very little about guns, how firearms work, and how firearms are currently regulated. Go ahead and spread some ignorance and misinformation if it suits your political viewpoint.

There's nothing new or newsworthy about coyotes running around town. Now cougars in Discovery Park, that's newsworthy.
Sep 11 restlessnative commented on RIP: Apple iPod™ "Classic".
I've got friends regularly using specialized waterproof cases to have an iPod to play music while they swim laps or decompress from long scuba dives. They sure aren't going to risk their smart phones for this purposes and most commodity mp3 players don't have these accessories available.
Sep 5 restlessnative commented on LTE: Why I'm Wrong for Parlaying a Cyclist's Death Into a Piece About Underfunded Bike-Safety Projects.
I appreciate The Stranger's editorial staff being called out occasionally and I'm glad that Dominic was willing to publish some criticism. There are quite a few issues that staff writers have difficulty writing about without showing very large biases or ignorance and it undermines the paper's credibility. I don't want the paper to stop writing about controversial topics but anybody with personal knowledge of, for example, interracial violence, firearms, or transportation policy can easily spot the advocacy masked as journalism. It wouldn't be inconstant with established standards of journalism to label advocacy as editorials, presenting advocacy pieces as reporting/news is not garnering my esteem and undermines The Stranger's credibility.

I wasn't happy to start seeing pumpkin beers show up in early Aug. this summer. It's just wrong.
