It was helpful. If I found that The Stranger and The Seattle Times agreed, I generally voted for that candidate. Others races were not so clear cut but it was good to read some calm, reasoned opinions. I enjoyed The Stranger's write-ups as well.

This is such a stupid waste of time and money and seriously annoying to the voters in the first district.
Also, please go away Darcy Burner.

They play again on Saturday in Pittsburgh and then are likely headed to a best-of-seven first round playoff series. If it goes all seven games someone's going to end up dead.

I believe This American Life has typically been clear when something is fictional or at least non-journalistic in nature as they do occasionally run those types of pieces. I vaguely recall a David Sedaris fable or two and a piece about a weightlifting snowman. It may also depend on the storyteller too. I don't generally believe that all of the Shalom Auslander pieces are without creative license or rigidly fact checked, for example.
This is of course my perception based on no rigorous research or fact checking.

My building downtown is swaying to the point of making me dizzy and nauseous. First time I've had that happen in the years I've worked here.
