Does this allow them to skirt the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision on tip sharing?

I'm thinking no one watches the Walking Dead anymore, maybe.

An article along the lines of "Does gentrification lead to hate crimes/increased violence?" would be an interesting discussion.

But The Stranger and others have put a single face on the violence, leading The Guardian article to write nuggets such as this:

"Long-term Capitol Hill residents don’t know how to stop this influx of violence. But for some, the culprits are easily identifiable: 'tech bros'."

And that's some lazy bullshit.

So it's the tech bros who moved Pine over to Pike, opened all of the fancy restaurants, gentrified the bars, and opened the hetero dancy-clubby places?

The gentrification has long been in motion, has it not? The recent boom just hastened it.

So how does one tell the difference between a recently-arrived software development engineer and a Kent resident who works at the Southcenter Hollister by day and just came to party on Capitol Hill for the night?

Have *any* of the hate crimes committed been attributed directly to a tech employee?

Superdelegate votes are not final, this number that Hillary has was all based on an early poll.

They can change their minds as they see the winds change like they did for Obama (but yeah, Bernie has a steeper hill to climb than Obama did).

My amazement at people pining for the good ol' days of their friendly neighborhood megabookchain, Barnes & Noble, will never cease.
