commented on Caryn Mathes, President and General Manager of KUOW, Talks About Her Plans for KPLU
I can't speak to what KUOW airs as we can't get a decent signal in West Seattle, but it will be a great loss to not have shows like Sound Effect available anymore. (and Art of Jazz kicks Swing Years ass btw) We cancelled our sustaining membership for the time being until we know how this all shakes out. And digital isn't an option for us, so to say that there will be more options really isn't true if it's via a medium we don't have.

Is this all the moral outrage you could muster? Or do you think midwesterners are just stupid based on "looking around at the clientele". Jebus you're an ass.
BTW, it's illegal to refuse to serve a woman a drink because she is pregnant - they teach you that in bartending school (sorry, I didn't go to one of your fancy book learnin' schools)
Also, when you are pregnant, isn't everything you ingest basically two for one?

commented on Seattle Will Not be Affordable Without First a Real Public Transportation System
More than half of my car tab price tag went to Sound Transit. If they add another $30-$60 for Metro, public transportation will account for at least 75% of the cost to register my car. If we all stop registering our cars, where will funding come from? This is an honest question. And it can't be from property taxes because now you are contributing even more to the rent rate hikes.
I would be happy to ride the bus, nothing would make me happier to leave the driving to someone else, but they've made it impossible because the infrastructure is so poor. There needs to be real reform and real choices, otherwise no one will get out of their cars. It's more cost effective for me to drive a car than ride a bus, pure and simple.
