New to Seattle and the Stranger, but so far I like them both. Mostly.

When I first started reading this piece, I thought I was gonna want to throw a book at you. But it makes sense. They are apples and oranges. Fine by me.

@10 if you gave me a toothbrush as a hostess gift, I would kick your ass out of my house. Actually, I would probably just roll my eyes. But you get the point. I wouldn't quite call it an "ideal" gift.

Also, Dan, this is really great. Thanks for posting it to introduce my novice-self to this guy.

Fuck yes, Cienna. Of course we don't buy it. I hope that a million people call and complain because of your article.

I'm sorry, Goldy. I've always been a fan of Horses Ass, but this article is in terrible taste. I'm a little disappointed, to be honest. Tear down the guy's political hypocrisy if you want—I'll giggle along with you at his ridiculous excuse for answers in the interview you linked, especially with regard to WSR—but I don't agree with the premise of this article in the slightest.

Charles, this is perhaps the first post of yours with which I have agreed. Well played sir.
