@1, I hope you and T.C. Elliot's wife never encounter anyone like Dinh Bowman on your drives home from work.

Hi, hist_ed @16. I believe the author was using "literally criminal" as a rhetorical device, meaning "outside the bounds of the law," and not, as you suggest, meaning "a criminal act covered under the RCW 9A."

Grinders in Shoreline. Get the Gilbano.

I'm with @9. I was registered in Yakima (since returned to Seattle, thank goodness), and I had to hold my nose and vote for Newhouse, because fuck Clint Didier.

In the races where there was a Republican running unopposed, and in some of the races where there were two Republicans and no Democrat (and there were many), I simply added myself as a write-in. I think I got about nine votes this year, including County Prosecutor, Sheriff, and Clerk.

I think the monacle story is the NYT's revenge for "Lamestain."

Some people have jobs and can't watch live sporting events in the early hours of the morning on a weekday. Thus, they DVR those live events and try to avoid spoilers until they can get home from work ad watch. Some sources of spoilers are easily avoidable because obviously. ESPN, Deadspin, even Slog, on the other hand, is not usually known for its spontaneous sports coverage, so is deemed a "safe" area in terms of potential spoilers.

It would have been pretty easy to write the headline as: "Olympic Hockey Results (caution, spoilers)," in fact, that's a pretty common headline when talking about a TV show. This is not Internet 101.

I stand by my earlier assessment: it was shitty.

@6. I totally agree. There are certain sites I stay away from if I'm DVR-ing live sporting events to watch later in the day. I thought Slog would be safe. I guess not. Shitty.

Guess I'll make other plans tonight.

Oh shit. I totally missed the "former band" part. Oh well.
