I have been with BECU for over two years and they are far from perfect. In fact, my two encounters with their online customer service have been entirely unsatisfactory. As long as you limit yourself to their online banking system they are OK. BECU is much better than Watermark, who took over the old King County Medical Credit Union and quickly messed it up. However, both are miles ahead of BofA and Chase.

Dan Satterberg did the right thing - for Dan Satterberg. It's a no-brainer. If Danny prosecuted, he might not get the Police Guild endorsement next election. Why risk that to achieve justice for a bunch of societal nobodies? That's not the way to keep power, and Danny the Politician is really interested in power. He didn't spend years and years kissing Maleng ass for nothing.

The SPD knew Mr. Williams and so did Birk. Birk picked the fight and then acted horribly. I'm shure he collected more than a few atta-boys from his fellow officers. Now he gets to collect retirement at public expense. And Mr. Williams paid the price.

The UW's burden can be eased by properly funding the Community College system and by reinstituting the long-standing rule that the UW MUST accept anyone with a WA CC Associates degree. The Leg overturned this rule several years ago and they should bring it back.

It should be recognized that the UW is a major research institution in a lot of areas and that a lot of this research results in licensing fees to the UW. This research feeds the Med school, the Engineering school, and a lot of other programs. By easing the UW's duty to teach freshman and sophomores, the Profs can concentrate on their upper-division and graduate students and on research in their chosen field.
