commented on If Only Gov. Gregoire Was More Like Gov. Walker
Don't forget, Goldy, that Gregoire is shamelessly shilling for the business/GOP push to gut Workers Comp--a "reform" that will have zero impact on the budget, but will make Boeing rub her tummy. Never mind that it stabs in the back the folks who walked precincts and phone banked on her behalf in two elections.

Look, Boeing can put a plant anywhere it wants to, and it's between the company and the local authorities. The NLRB got involved because Bowing announced to the world that it was locating the plant in SC in retaliation for an IAM strike. That's plainly illegal, and the NLRB called them on it.

commented on Seattle Places 11th on List of 10 Best Cities for Public Transit!
I don't know if transit access for people with disabilities is part of the ranking system, but New York is among the worst. Very few subway stops are wheelchair accessible, and recent bus cutbacks disportionately affect folks with disabilities. As a wheelchair-user, I find it easier to get around in Mexico City than in New York.
