Why are two of the three questions about her appearance?

I'd show them this:

And ask them how it feels to know that little girls can play their music.
Jun 22, 2015 Ryan Boudinot commented on Dear Seattle, Why Do You Hate EMP?.
EMP starts to make a lot more sense if you go with children. My kids love it, and I've enjoyed lecturing to them endlessly about the genius of Kurt Cobain and how cool Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video was when it came out.
Apr 30, 2015 Ryan Boudinot commented on The Seattle Times Says Kshama Sawant Needs to Apologize to Her New Council Colleague. Should She?.
The problem with demands for public apology is that there is no way for the offended to publicly accept the apology. Public apologies are about public humiliation.
Apr 16, 2015 Ryan Boudinot commented on The Masterpiece That Helped Transform Comics and Culture.
Eightball is such a treasure. I have fond memories of showing "Art School Confidential" to a fellow Evergreen student who was pursuing visual art. He totally took offense at it, proving that he had neither artistic talent nor a sense of humor. And who can forget Sensual Santa? The amazing thing about Clowes is that after reading his comics for awhile, people you see on the street start to look like he drew them. Can't wait to revisit these masterpieces.

This is such a stupid piece. Bleh. Not one I'm proud of. Too painfully self aware and wanting to impress. Pretty much a piece of shit.

Hi everyone,

This was my boss, the Director of the MFA program I left. Gets interesting at 10:08.

A subject as serious as child abuse deserves to be treated with the utmost respect for writing craft.

The student memoir that made me cry was entirely about child abuse.

I haven't read Shields's books, so I'm unqualified to comment on the quality of his work. What's interesting to me is that there's still cache in Seattle in getting published by New York presses and an assumption that merely publishing books bestows upon one the role of cultural figure. It's laughable to me to think that my opinion on anything is worth listening to just because I've written a few books.
