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.
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.
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?
