11:03 AM nwcitizen commented on Mayor Ed Murray Promises More City-Supervised Homeless Encampments.
The managed encampments I am familiar with do allow pets. However, some do draw the line at pitt bulls because they are perceived to be more dangerous.
Sep 21 nwcitizen commented on Watch Senator Elizabeth Warren's Splendid Takedown of "Gutless" Wells Fargo Executive.
This is the kind of oversight that we've needed all along. Now, if only, Congress were populated with people with intelligence and principles such as Senator Warren has, more Wall Street executives would be minding their Ps and Qs and some would be in jail.
Sep 4 nwcitizen commented on SHARE to Reopen Indoor Homeless Shelters After Five-Month Closure.
"the Low Income Housing Institute will provide SHARE residents with volunteer caseworkers through 2017"

Looks like the City will be getting for free what it should be paying for. Not fair Seattle!

These heinous crimes are committed mostly by males. Why is that?
Jun 3 nwcitizen commented on SPD Says Naloxone Price Spikes Won't Affect Their Life-Saving Pilot Program.
Price gouging by big Pharma. No surprise there. Another reason we need to get the profit making corporations our of our healthcare.
Jun 1 nwcitizen commented on Science News: We Are Quick to Condemn the Shooting of a Famous Animal but Do Nothing About the Climate Change That Threatens and Kills Millions Upon Millions of Animals.
The Regressives have been working overtime to prevent anything good from happening in our state and in our nation. They are getting what they want, a nation in decline and a populace so dispirited that they cannot act believing anything they do will not do any good. We know what would help on a number of fronts but are blocked at every turn by those who only want to hang onto the fortunes they have accumulated.
May 8 nwcitizen commented on Why Cliff Mass Is a Very Dangerous Weatherperson.
My problem with Cliff Mass is that if he indeed believes climate change is real then he needs to be speaking out about it. Fine for him to continue to be an honest scientist but not OK to do only that and not speak out about the other. Dr. James Hanson ( http://www.columbia.edu/~jeh1/ ) is an example of a climate scientist with integrity. I have my doubts about Mr. Mass.
May 4 nwcitizen commented on Privatizing the Clearing of Homeless Encampments.
Regardless of how the contract for this work was let, I find it disgusting to treat people this way.

Ironically, the Mayor's declaration of an emergency could preclude the need for competitive bidding.

I understand the Mayor considers the founder of the Catholic Worker movement, Dorothy Day, to be his inspiration. This seems odd when one considers she is famous for saying "Our problems stem from our acceptance of this filthy rotten system."

Apr 20 nwcitizen commented on Starbucks Baristas Are at Risk of Being Poked by Dirty Needles.
Yes, training their employees for how to safely dispose of hypodermic needles and providing sharps containers in the bathrooms is a minimum that Starbucks should do. I think the company's response that to do so would hurt its public image is despicable.

SPD offers training in safe pickup and disposal of needles. Sharps containers can be purchased from any drug store. The Fire Department will dispose of sharps containers at no cost. There is no excuse for Starbucks not to be more responsible to the public and to their employees.
Apr 16 nwcitizen commented on KEXP’s New Home Grand Opening Unveils Spacious, High-Tech Splendor.
Just curious why, given the high tech nature of the equipment at the station, their on demand audio archive still doesn't work? This has been going on for MONTHS!
