Please, please, keep the bagels out of Seattle! They have no place here. Or move back to the east coast.

I didn't think diesel fuel would ignite in open air like that... Are they sure the diesel caught on fire???

If you have lived here for 10 days, you are a Native American. You must mean Duwamish Tribal Member. Can you IMAGINE if a Tsleil-Waututh tribal member came here and tried to "take back Seattle"??? There would be an uproar.

Calculate property tax on the maximum possible build out. This would make undeveloped/under developed lots untenable.

Many people consider atheism just another religion or a movement. This is not true. Calling on atheists to police other atheists is sort of odd. The only thing atheists have in common is their non-believe in a god or gods.

One strategy that would help in this regard is a policy that allows sound transit to build integrated TOD around stations, as happens in place like Singapore. Let's take a look a Beacon Hill Station. The station is almost entirely underground, yet the land on top of this station is basically wasted space.

We really do not need anymore wind swept plaza, bamboo, and benches with "bum deterrents".

Imagine if Sound Transit were allowed to develop the property above the station in an efficient and profitable way, say a 12 or more story residential/commercial building with integrated station entrances. The profit from this development could be put right back into expanding the system, plus we would be expanding the supply of affordable houses.

I have a sinking feeling that even Kshama Sawant would be opposed to this... but I hope I am wrong.

I will go on the high plants, low animals diet, or as I like to call it the "reefer and weasel" diet.
