commented on Yes, Seattle Has Conservatives
"There are clearly two teams in Seattle politics: Call them what you will, the wealthier, older moderates/conservatives and the working-class, younger liberals."
I'd push back a little on this. Note that in Anderstone's analysis, poor and working-class SE Seattle is one of the most anti-tax areas of the city. It isn't just elderly and white Magnolia and Broadmoor who don't vote The Stranger's ticket - working class Rainier Valley residents also join the Republicans on levies and tax increases.

Yeah, the problem with Invisible Children isn't "opaque finances" or the White Man's Burden, it's that their solution is giving direct financial assistance to the Ugandan army, which itself uses rape as a weapon of war and is linked to countless human rights violations. This is a scam.

Gus, you trippin'. View Ridge Elementary and View Ridge Park, and along with them the View Ridge neighborhood, are at 45th Ave and 75th St, 3 miles away, with the Ravenna neighborhood between. This is at the point where U-district/Roosevelt/Ravenna meet.
