The Stranger is so cute when it tries to do sports. You've fixed a couple of errors. I wonder if anyone cares about the rest.

"Meaning, they'd think real long and hard before casually blocking them."

Since when do they think long and hard before blocking vehicle lanes either? Construction crews are dicks. Probably more dickish bicycles, but pretty fucking dickish to everyone.

I'm still pissed they axed the only Eastlake station that would be useful for residents because of NIMBYs.

So put up one of them billboards already.

That's a site run by libertarian Cato Institute. They are ahead of most people with respect to the police being out of control.

For once, Paul Constant is right.

So Paul Constant is in favor of me paying $14.99 instead of $9.99. What a dick.

Huh. I didn't know those sales "belonged" to UBS.

So what the fuck do you intend to do about it? You failed at the resolution last year, and are making the exact same resolution this year. You are going to have similar results unless you do something different

When i had a crappy book blog and realized the same thing, i added a rule of thumb that i would start a book by someone non white or non male for every book i finished by a white male.

That's probably not appropriate for The Stranger, but you could do something else. For every issue with a book review, there will be at least two reviews and one of the authors will be a woman. Or no review of a male author gets scheduled for publication until you've decided on a book by a woman o review. Or every month the stack of books considered to be reviewed will have an equal number of men and women authors. (I.e., that sets a consideration time that you are actually thinking about gender parity.) Or you hire another reviewer who has a better track record for parity than you do to balance and push you in the right direction.

What are you actually going to commit to?
