commented on An Open Letter From Erin Jones to The Stranger
Maybe Erin Jones' views on LGBTQ issues are just fine - the problem is, now I don't know. She says one thing to one group and a different thing to another. She says one thing in writing, when she has time to think about it and for staff/consultants to draft/edit it, and she has said different things off the cuff in interviews. She chalks these up to learning experiences, misunderstandings or miscommunications. Maybe she's right and she is growing and learning but I don't know how anyone can be sure what she actually believes.
I know what Chris Reykdal believes on LGBTQ issues, and he stands with the community 100%.

commented on Why Cliff Mass Is a Very Dangerous Weatherperson
Cliff is a self-important asshole who cares more about being as pedantic as possible than actual science and truth. He lost a lot of credibility in the meteorological community last summer with his whole "we're not really in drought" routine that turned out to be completely wrong. You'll never hear him admit that he made any kind of error, ever, of course.

@7 - I agree with your comment, but one minor correction - most levies need a certain minimum turnout to be approved, but there's a special exemption for school levies. If 3 people vote and 2 say yes, it passes.

commented on Where to Get Drunk with Politicians and Watch Tomorrow's Election Results Come In
Always great to see a candidate getting mad as hell about an internet blog in the comments section the day before the election! I'm glad you're spending your time posting 1000 word screeds here because I'd rather you spend your time doing that than getting-out-the-vote for the 15% of voters who supported you in the primary
