It's better to just kill the whole critical overview piece all together and let us whine about missing Birch than put us through a rotating cast of caricature writers. Or better yet, get Hulk to do this piece a couple of times until Birch "wanders back into the office after digging himself out of his own grave because you idiots buried him alive."

The first email is a real gem. "God is not mocked!"

"Jehovah, Jehovah, Jehovah!"

Dear Dan, please keep fighting the ignoramuses, you are doing a stellar job.

No! This was consistently the best column (along with occasional gem from Hulk). Win one damn Pulitzer and now The Stranger is too cool to make fun of itself (yes, that's a low blow and likely totally inaccurate).

@8 has it right; this is sales and marketing where brand image is an important part of the job.

Microsoft is a big place, and there are plenty of people with iPhones and MacBooks (mostly running Windows). The idea that Microsoft is full of zombie employees blindly following Steve Ballmer is amusing, but a more accurate caricature would be quite the opposite. More like a thousand cooks (and their egos) trying to share one kitchen for ten restaurants.

Awesome, Dan. I admire your focus and resolve.

A true American. I wish every politician was like Foghorn; CSPAN would be the highest rated network on TV.

Agreed. Paul, you had me right up to that part with the nerd analogy, which left me confused. He is like the kid who does poorly on tests, interrupts and yells a lot, throws tantrums, and demands other kids like him. And of course he smells like poop.

Slayer rules. Now I miss Swarming Hordes shows and getting drunk and arguing about who rocked harder. I'm still going with the Hordes.
Nov 30, 2010 seniorrobot commented on If You Want to Stop the Tunnel....
All of the options have their downside, and yes the viaduct would be "fugly," but it is the best option. $700m is nothing to sneeze at, and I trust that number much more than the tunnel cost based on the fact that we've actually built one of these before! It keeps semis off of surface streets, opens up the space underneath much like the tunnel would, and the $1B could be applied to other needed projects around the city.

Is "fugly" the main concern? What about moving commerce, providing open space, and staying wihtin budget? Seattle is a practical city - there is more to consider than just vanity.
