Your article praising this band is bullshit. They were the worst band on that bill last night. "Don't" was far better music and also have the original drummer for the Wipers. Pierced Arrow are legends and you should write about them anytime they roll through town. Even the Bermuda's were far more talented with their blend of 60's psych-surf rock. C'mon stranger, stop writing about your friend's bands - it's getting old.

I liked your post Strikeforcemorituri. That south park episode is a great depiction.
What everyone is forgetting to take into account that most of the homeless population who are clinically proven insane, have been discharged from NAVOS or Western state mental institution, transplanted in pioneer square and receive SSI or SSDI government checks from their appointed case management agency. Followed by spending it on recreational drugs and booze within the same week, because that is the lifestyle they desire. Resulting in having to panhandle & most of the time aggressively, because the week long crack binge is wearing off! There are still many more options available to the aforementioned homeless population of Seattle than any impoverished third world country resident.
Everybody is responsible, everybody suffers, so does your paycheck from the taxes used for delivering people to detox centers! Some people are just more sophisticated in hustling society or implementing laws to improve their living conditions. - just a thought.
