Ansel, sorry if you saw this already, but Alexander penned an article in late February titled, "Why Hillary Clinton Doesn't Deserve the Black Vote": http://www.thenation.com/article/hillary…

Worth taking a look at.

On a different note, is Matt Baume actually a real person or is he a reactionary mouthpiece for Keck????

@13 and @25 are right. I don't see the Clinton vote agreeing to the dual endorsement if they'd happened to be in the majority.
Mar 16 sikandro commented on The New UW Light Rail Station May Be Beautiful, But Is It Practical For Students?.
As @28 said, this is going to be a much quicker transit option for those coming from south Seattle, and a more reliable one. The fastest I got from Beacon Hill to the U-District was about 30 minutes, when all the transfers hit right. More often, it took close to an hour.

The 49 is a great line in the morning. Generally predictable, generally, on time, and generally not much traffic to deal with. But getting back up to Capitol Hill on the 49 is a nightmare during evening rush hour. I'll happily walk down to the station to not have to worry if the bus, once it finally arrives, will take 45 minutes to get to Broadway & Pine, especially since from my office it will take less time to get there than it takes to get to the 49 stop on 15th.
Jan 12 sikandro commented on Bernie Sanders Is Beating Clinton in Some Polls, but Does It Matter?.
Once again, your article would be better if you did a little bit of basic historical research. It's not just that Bernie hasn't taken money from the NRA--the NRA has a history of actively campaigning against Bernie and endorsing his opponents in races.

And once again, you have a broken link in the article.

Also, your link to the Guardian article is broken.

Instead of repeatedly asking how Bernie might possibly win this thing, try doing some basic research into how he has actually won elections in the past. It's not like Vermont was a hot bed of socialism in the early 80s when he first became mayor of Burlington.

Man, I keep looking at that word and just can't decide, based on the Ts and Ss elsewhere in the letter.

I think that's cusing (causing), not cuting.

@1. I don't know how you could say by any stretch of the imagination that Kensrue was Driscoll's "right hand man." He was one of the few elders who called for action against Driscoll while still a leader at the church, and resigned shortly after. Maybe you have special knowledge.

This is well documented at Throckmorton's blog: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/warrenthroc…

Anyway, that bar at Chop Suey looks well-done. I am disappointed that Big Buck Hunter is showing up there, but at least it's not replacing a well-used pool table like at Linda's!
