The dust you kick up in the arid Southwest might kill you if it contains fungal spores of Coccidioides immitis, you breathe it in, and you have a weakened immune system.

Just walk! It's not that far away! What about your health? Walking is good for you!

@5 Take the bus or train downtown. Public transportation in Seattle's great and hunting and paying for parking is a headache there.

I hope it is all private because I don't want a single public dime going into it.

Google and Facebook - bringing consumerist garbage (and Slog) to regions of the world that are blissfully free from it.

Peter O'Toole - You'll never win the Oscar, but we'll give you The Hammer!

Pretty funny.

The Sarah Jones story is interesting, a good case study of an employer cutting corners and creating a deadly work environment.

@13 That's a great website. Thanks.

@18 That is the worst thing I've ever read from you. Seriously. "Oh, just move to Kansas or something. No big deal. That's like taking a bus across town. It's just a couple dollars, that's all. Don't worry if you don't know what's there. And once you're there, everybody will be so nice, pretty soon you'll have a house and a job. It's so easy! But Seattle is just not for poor people like you. I'm sorry."

How cold and dark does your heart have to be to deliberately cut essential aid for the neediest, without the slightest justification, just to score a political point? How hateful and shriveled does your soul have to be? Why is it that Republicans can't win statewide anymore? Where does their nasty reputation come from? This is one of the worst political stories from this state I've ever heard. If we could measure it with a meter, it would probably have set some sort of record.

For the love of god, somebody with some chops please run against Rodney Tom. There's zero excuse why he should still be there. These people are an actual menace to society. Forget the crazy, drunken hoboes. Be afraid of what Senate Republicans are doing to you. Because of Senate Republicans, you'll encounter even more crazy, drunken hoboes than before. This is a law-and-order, public-safety issue! Isn't that what Republicans were so supposedly good at?

So the movie Noah is "not a line-by-line retelling of the Bible story", to quote the linked article? Well, that's good - because the story details don't agree with themselves!

Yeah, I liked this post (and that church does not look that attractive on the exterior), but I agree with the others. A church is not a bakery. We wouldn't expect a mosque to perform a Jewish ceremony, and if the religion of the church is opposed to gay marriage on principle, we have to follow their rules. If they lose (or gain) parishoners, then so be it.

And why would a gay or lesbian couple want to host their wedding in a place that rejects them?
Feb 26, 2014 floater commented on Rand Paul Blocks Surgeon General Nominee for Believing Guns Are Hazardous To Your Health.
The quickest way to get a conservative in America angry is to in anyway suggest that guns are dangerous. Gun ownership is like an article of faith for them.
