What do all the male friends and associates of Hickey think and feel, now that he's been exposed? What are they doing differently, now?

You work at the Stranger, Ansel. Why don't you ask them?
Aug 19 kitschnsync commented on What's So Funny About the Naked Trump Statue?.
Thanks for this, Rich. There is a definitely hypocrisy on display here; when we vilify body shaming of people we like but celebrate it when it's someone we don't like (see @7, shaming of Chris Christie, etc), we are abandoning our own principles.

It will be interesting to see how people rationalize their support for the Trump statues if/when naked Clinton statues appear.
Aug 19 kitschnsync commented on The Morning News:Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort Resigns, Judge to Those Who Lost Lives and Homes in Oso Mudslide: It's Your Fault.
Wow. That's some Grade A assholery in the Oso item.

Oso is hardly in the middle of nowhere; it is ten minutes away from Arlington, a community that is over a hundred years old. One hundred years ago, most of Western Washington was "no place for a home" by Mudede standards in 2016... But there were timber jobs and a railroad in that area. You know, they stuff that built civilization in those times.

I'm not saying the judge was wrong in the ruling, just that Mudede is an insensitive prick. Congrats on another successful trolling attempt, Charles.
Aug 18 kitschnsync commented on Who's Leading Jill Stein In Texas Polls? Deez Nuts..
Who cares about Jill Stein? Dan Savage's criticism of her and her supporters seems petty. They don't matter.

The bigger and better story out of Texas is that Trump is turning the state purple.

LOL @ 5.

Good stuff, Rich! (But you should make Keck buy you a mic, the audio is not so good.)
Aug 3 kitschnsync commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Back To the Dorms.
If you are in your early 30s and you are seriously dating someone who is still in college (and presumably 18-22ish), you don't have your shit together.
Aug 3 kitschnsync commented on It Would Be Helpful If Hillary Clinton Stopped Lying.
Ansel, I respect that you take the time to reply to commenters here. And I agree that we should take Hillary to take for her prevarication and obfuscation going forward... But honestly, at this point her email controversy is dead and this particular issue really doesn't matter. Hillary wasn't charged with anything after a thorough investigation. She could tell a thousand lies about her email server and they wouldn't matter. We've got bigger fish to fry, dude.

It is the job of every sane American over the next three months to make sure Trump never becomes President. That's what matters, and sowing dissent among the progressive electorate isn't helping.

Anybody who hasn't been listening to Anderson Paak is missing out.

Batarang dude is the hero that Seattle deserves, but not the one it needs.
Jul 26 kitschnsync commented on Seattle's Bats Are Affected by Urban Sprawl, Too.
I've always wondered why we don't have more urban bats in Seattle; bats can do well in urban environments. In Austin, large colonies of bats congregate under bridges, but they seem to be missing here.

It's not because of the lack of suitable architecture. Does anybody have any clue why there aren't more bats in town?
