Mar 16 DOUG. commented on Guest Editorial: Starbucks' New Paid Family Leave Policy Isn't as Groundbreaking as You May Have Heard.
Okay, I'll be the dick.

The baby is three months old and Kristen has worked for Starbucks for a year, meaning she got pregnant about the time she was hired. Should maternity (and paternity) leave be equitable across-the-board, or should it be earned on a sliding scale of tenure and hours worked (assuming retail and corporate employees are treated the same)?

@5: I walked by the Knarr yesterday. I think their last day is tomorrow.

This sucks and I hope Cafe Racer finds a loving owner. But the real question is who owns the property, and what's their selling point? Because someone could probably stick four townhomes on that parcel, which does put "teardown" in play.
Mar 15 DOUG. commented on Is Colin Kaepernick's Pro-Football Career Over Because of Racism?.
The Seahawks should sign him if they can get him for a few million. He's better than Trevone Boykin. And Russell's looking kinda chubby.
Mar 14 DOUG. commented on The Guardian: Spokane Is Such a Shithole, College Basketball Is the Only Thing Keeping Everyone There from Committing Suicide.
It sounds like the author grew up in Spokane and his parents still live there. He has a closer perspective than most.
Mar 14 DOUG. commented on Ex-Green Bay Packer Running Back Eddie Lacy is a Seattle Seahawk, But Offensive Line Still a Question Mark.
The Hawks should fatten him up and put him at left tackle.
Mar 14 DOUG. commented on Fill Out the White House's Dumb Form: "Share Your Obamacare Disaster Story".
@10: How is our current system of private insurance to fund for-profit health care a "social program"?
Mar 13 DOUG. commented on Fill Out the White House's Dumb Form: "Share Your Obamacare Disaster Story".
Our health insurance system is terrible. This includes Obamacare. Any message I'll ever send to the government about fixing health insurance will be about creating a single-payer system, it will not be "save Obamacare" (which, yes, is far better than the "Be Rich or Die" shit proposed by the GOP).

@4: You are not alone in not understanding how bike share works. How about car share? Or taxi cabs? Can you comprehend those?
Mar 13 DOUG. commented on First Hill Streetcar: No Firm Plans to Return to Service.
Bike share would be a great way to get from First Hill to Capitol Hill. Too bad Ed Murray killed it.
