commented on The Green-Duwamish River Makes U.S. Endangered Rivers List For 2016
I recommend reading this piece to understand how the land in Seattle has fundamentally changed over the years: CHANGING SPACES
Nature, Property, and Power in Seattle, 1880-1945 by Matthew Klingle. It's pretty staggering.
Oh and while I hate Monsanto and think they should get what's coming to 'em, Boeing is majorly to blame in this situation. They've had Seattle/King County at their beck and call since the 1920s, and try to get out of any sort of blame for pollution.

commented on The Death of the Obedient Pedestrian and the Rise of Sidewalk Rage in Seattle
Unless I'm in a hurry, I don't mind people on smartphones that much. They're pretty amusing to watch at times. The pedestrians that annoy me are groups of friends that walk three or more abreast, take up the whole sidewalk, and either have no awareness of the fact that they're in your way or are just assholes. I think we should just put sidewalk extensions wherever possible since apparently the smartphone trend is pushing out the driving trend.

commented on Why Am I So Intolerant of the Duggars?
Straight couples, however, are trying to ban Duggar marriages. In fact, the country should be banning their family from living here. Just imagine what the Duggar family's carbon footprint must be!

commented on If You Didn't Vote, Why?
Because I'm registered in Pierce County but temporarily living in Whatcom County, and even though I made sure well ahead of time that the election people had my correct mailing address, I didn't get a ballot! And since I was not able to swing down to Pierce County before the election and it was too late to have them send another, I was fucked, yet again. This also happened to my boyfriend who is registered in King County and a friend who I believe recently registered in Whatcom County - so he was able to vote on election day at an office. I wonder how many others simply didn't get a ballot and couldn't get another sent in time.
