Yes, this is totally Dan in bi-denial again. It's a cultural thing and won't go away until his generation does.

Wow. This has been a tiring week for Sarah and Emily - they're real troopers!

@14 That's EXACTLY what needs to be done. Decisions against the police for rights violations need to be paid for BY the police out of their own SALARIES. Not the taxpayer. Not the bonus pool, which should be RESET TO ZERO EACH TIME.

A single $1 million settlement might hurt for a while, but I guarantee peer pressure will breed a new attitude amongst the wild-wild-west crowd working there now. And empty out some slots for civilized replacements.

Quit demeaning all the folks who know the real power of true magic. It's not "magical thinking", it's IDIOCRACY.

Far be it from me to suggest that maybe their voting machines need to be investigated for back doors. But just because Ohio's got decades of experience with that doesn't mean Washington zealots can't learn.

@22 All your flying and travelling is adding to your carbon footprint, which along with your consumption patterns (repeated by hundreds of millions) is destroying the health of the planet. Your behavior is depressing. Get rid of it!

As for dead birds, the birds killed by smog from coal plants and radiation from nuclear plants don't pile up around the plants. But their deaths for a century have been just as real, rest assured.

"But despite its success, Congress has repeatedly allowed it to lapse, halting the wind industry's progress in the U.S."

The same thing has been done to solar energy repeatedly. A little help (eg tax credits) is soon followed by the rug getting pulled.

Which almost always results in a failure for alt-energy. It has happened so often there's no question its part of a strategy to prove that alt-energy isn't viable. Despite big successes, e.g., in California that have generated big power for a quarter-century.

a few petty criminals to steal the voice of average, everyday Seattleites

Some Seattleites aren't getting their cut of the pie. Some of the action may not be coming from provocateurs - it may be coming from those whose voices have been excised from the media, insulted by indiscrimate pepper spraying, and by the petty indifference and frightened jeremiads of their fellow Seattleites.
