Make it a sandwich full of laxatives and broken glass.

Just FYI: Amazon also owns Goodreads, Abebooks (a used bookseller) and Comixology (digital comics portal). So if you're not into supporting, but still supporting these, you might want to consider other avenues.
Apr 16, 2014 bookworm commented on Reform in Reverse.
As someone who's lived in Seattle for 15 years and seen how corrupt and uncaccountable SPD has been over all that time (and coming to understand SPOG's role in fighting any efforts at reform), I'm glad to see this all laid out so plainly, and identifying the need to address not just SPD in general, but SPOG's contract specifically (past contracts have frequently been used to block reforms and changes). I generally liked McGinn, but was incredibly disappointed with how he handled SPD reform. And now having seen how Murray has handled this over the last few months, I'd say that he's on track to do as much -- if not more -- damage, if he and other city officials don't heed the proposals in this article. Pugel was someone taking us in the right direction, while Bailey most certainly is not. And SPOG needs to be reined in. I support labor unions wholeheartedly, but I think negotiations have to recognize that policing is categorically different that many other forms of public service, and so SPD needs to have some level of community accountability that can't be circumvented in the ways it historically has been.

But without Hooky, it just doesn't seem like New Order.

@9 - I saw that tour as well. First time seeing all those bands. It was at an outdoor theater-place in Philly, and my friends and I had Gen Admission lawn seats, but snuck down towards the front. We stayed there during Sugarcubes and PiL, but then the true seatholders arrived for New Order, and we got booted over to the side (still great view). Sugarcubes and New Order were great, but that was right around the time PiL really started getting boring (to me, at least). Still glad to see them all, though.

This is great, though likely at least partially to gain some "market share" with queer folks who identify in a lot of different ways.

But I also notice that they only have "Women" and "Men" for "Interested In" menu. Then again, who really uses that option?

Tyker the Creator (yuck) and Big Freedia (yay!) on the same day? My brain just exploded.

Danielle Henderson,

Love your line, "...because how you hate together is almost as important as how you love." Have enjoyed your writing thus far, and looking forward to many such gems in the future.

Good luck, Cienna. You will be sorely missed. You've done some amazing work at the Stranger.

I think the most ridiculous part of this is the idea that lots of kids are watching Megan Kelly's show on FoxNews. Ridiculous, and potentially horrifying if true.
