I think a thick vinyl curtain that's aluminized facing outside would be the way to go. Ugly? You bet.

@ 86 The dude they were wrestling with pulled the gun on the cops and was shot. The one who got too close afterward was addressed by the cop wheeling around and pointing the gun at him until he backed up out of harm's way.

@43 Michelle, Oscar may have been kind to his family and maybe even on balance a good man. Fine, whatever. Tell me how that excuses his previous armed criminal behavior including the alleged robbery of one of our other readers. And especially tell me how it excuses *clearly pulling a stolen, illegally concealed pistol on law enforcement officers with the intent to murder them.*

I totally understand your grief, and I understand your disbelief. I'm not asking you not to love Oscar anymore.

But you don't get to choose your own facts. Your cousin was a thug who is dead now solely because he made bad choices. It wasn't immigration policy, it wasn't the transit police, it wasn't racism. It was his own willingness to murder that got him killed.

Open and shut. A criminal pointed a pistol at a police officer and was sent to the morgue. Let this be a lesson to the idiots out there who marched in protest over the shooting.

And if you want to stop these rampage shootings, urge the mass media to stop printing the names of the shooters, their pictures, their manifestos, or anything else about them. They do this for their 15 minutes of miserable infamy. They study the shootings that previous warped individuals have perpetrated, and they think this is the ticket to the fraternity.

What if we as a nation decided to just stop fearing them and stop paying attention? Then maybe their little tantrums would stop.

Many of the same people calling Jon Meis a hero today don't know just how lucky he was not to take a 12 gauge hole to his chest as others did.

I bet you didn't know that Jon is a firearms enthusiast. Likes on his FB page include Remington and Kel Tec.

All's well that ends well, but I bet he wishes that he had been allowed to keep a little Kel Tec .380 in deep concealment on SPU campus. Then, he wouldn't have had to so gravely risk his life in order to stop the assailant.

The 15Now people spent their load on precisely the wrong fight. Instead of having all the unskilled people make the same wage irrespective of market conditions, their relative value to the company, etc., they should have renewed the push for a *progressive state income tax.*

Washington has the most regressive taxation structure in the US. This is why you see people who can't scrape by as well as people zooming by in their Audi R8s. The dirty little secret about our state is that the poor are the ones who fund it, and that structural revenue problem is why our legislature nickel and dimes us to death every year.

I vote down every sales tax and regressive fee increase, irrespective of what the money is to be used to pay for. Infrastructure is going to have to fall down to wake people up to the fact that the rich in Seattle make out like bandits and do not pay their share for the society that made their riches possible.

The gentrification of Seattle shall continue apace. People who will make $15/hr in the city under this new law will still not be able to afford living near their work -- they will find that their rent increases just as fast as their wage. They can continue living in Skyway or Burien.

One thing is for certain: the budget lunch will disappear in Seattle. Expect more people to brown bag it as prices rise faster than their wages.

This is a giant giveaway from Seattle to its suburbs, who can barely contain their giggles at the whole thing.

This cycle track would make a lot more sense if there wasn't already a bike freeway on Dexter.

Until we have a progressive income tax in this state, the powers that be can fuck themselves with unending pleas for regressive taxation?

$60 car tabs for a Porsche or a shitbox? Fuck no.
Sales tax increase that hits the poor the hardest? Fuck no.

FUCK NO.
