@22 - Smoke is smoke, however the second hand smoke argument is bullshit. The Anti-smoking campaign in the 90's lied about deaths per year and hyper exaggerated the risks to ones health. They justified it by saying it shames people into quitting.

Never smoked anything in my life, but if you're outdoors (preferably away from playgrounds and schools), I've got no problems with you smoking anything.

Happy to see drones are no longer on the table, but I have to agree with the city on security cameras. In the UK, these things are everywhere and directly helped find criminals in a recent stabbing spree there. Security cameras are "the man" up until it helps find the scum that beat the shit out of you in Belltown.

Eight years ago I remember having high school classes dedicated to preparing for the WASL, the state standardized test at the time. It was insane how much time we spent on it. Meanwhile, I never learned about the Vietnam war and only briefly touched on WWII in history. My high school education was a joke and it looks like it still is for many.

I've got nothing against the bicyclists/bike lanes, especially in the car congested downtown area. However, when I'm driving in Renton on Logan Ave and I see bicyclists not utilizing the bike lanes but instead cycling in the middle of the road -- well, I'm not so nice. If it's provided to you, PLEASE use it.

Hmm, no mention of how this will bring high paying, blue collar union jobs to Bellingham. Also, these coal trains have been going by my work nearly every day for the last few years. Other than the grinding wheels that make ear piercing noise, I've never seen this mystical coal dust or had any problems breathing.

Dan Segal is a sorry excuse for a music writer if he considers this drivel anything but a shit show. There was a time not long ago where musical artists wrote the lyrics they sing and recorded and performed the music that was played. The only exception I can think of in recent times (other than the boy band Maroon 5) is Adele who actually writes her own lyrics and is a fantastic talent.

Good music is a matter of personal opinion, but when it's test tube created by record companies, I have no respect for it. I would think a musical writer would tend to agree with that...

Please, that hate mail is nothing. Write an article critical of the Prog-Rock band Rush and you'll get some real hate mail.

Owning a Falcon 900 makes you employ at minimum four people directly, and dozens indirectly. Any job in the business aviation industry will employ highly skilled, blue collar, unionized jobs. Don't be quick to bash people who own business jets... I know of many Seattle millionaires/billionaires who have much bigger and flashier planes they don't necessary need. The Falcon 900 is just right.
