I tip 20% even when I get not-great service, because I know I took the time of a person who isn't paid a good hourly wage. But like #23 said, they don't know that when I sit down. I prefer going to a place where I know the staff is being paid well and I don't need to tip to make up the difference.

Saw and railed against the same thing in a review of Alabama Shakes. Reviewer said Howard's lyrics are "murky." On one of the songs on the album, she literally screams "Gimme All Your Love." Nothing murky about that.

Community was drawing a couple of million viewers before it was cancelled. if even a third of those follow it to Yahoo it'll be a win. As someone who's a fan of the show, I'm stoked. Even if it never rises to the levels of S2 & 3, it's still one of the best short-form comedies out there.

Here's the problem: "Gays are the problem." That's what the report reportedly says. Bullshit.

I'm just outside her district, but I just gave her campaign $15. It was the last line that did it for me.

#40 You got facts to back up that claim that black people commit a disproportionate amount of crime? They are disproportionately jailed. There seem to be quite a few in the white community with an irrational assumption that black people are the ones committing the crime.

"He's obviously a crook because he's black."

"He's a crook so he must be black."

THAT's what I was responding to in the post before mine.

#18 My neighborhood up in Lynnwood/Bothell has been having a series of breakins by WHITE guys. My wife was home when one of them kicked in our door.

In fact, most crime in this country is committed by white people. But that inconvenient point might upset your worldview.

Our neighborhood is organizing, something the homeowners in this post should try, if they haven't already. We set up a Facebook page and we're talking and meeting. The cops can only do so much. Neighbors looking out for each other is the best medicine for this kind of petty crime.
