Yeah, I bet a lot of chew tabakky missed its spittoon.

Here's what I do with this information: I get my paperwork in order and apply for a Dan Savage Foundation grant so that I can afford to move back to Vancouver.

So much for civic pride. If it's vandalism, then the vandal(s) should be made to pedal from one end of Seattle to the other on flat tires with the seat pole up their ass. If it's a mental case, then let's gas up the EST machine and zap the meanness out of 'em. I get so tired of people who just want to destroy shit, making it hard for others.
Oct 5, 2016 Bauhaus I commented on Auto Industry: Why Build a High-Speed Train Line Between Vancouver and Seattle When You Could Have More Cars?.
The bizarreness of this idea speaks so easily for itself.

You can certainly say that again, Cholly. And remember why those who favored self-driving cars did so? "It would still take four hours, " they said, "but at least you could read a newspaper or watch a movie," which is what you can do on Amtak now. Yeah, I don't get it.

What? No way. 2004? How is it possible that 12 years have gone by?

Well, I always wanted to tell you, but never got around to it - so I better say so now, how much I loved much of the work of the Mizell Bros. particularly their work with The Rance Allen Group. "Reason to Survive" is a big favorite - so uplifting and encouraging. First time I heard it, somewhere around LACC, it brought a tear to my eyes. That's how beautiful it was (is).

Very best wishes, L.

All the way around, this is what happens when having a little class is no longer a valued attribute.

I'd like to tell him what he can do with that thumb.
Sep 26, 2016 Bauhaus I commented on Remembering the Black Central District, Part One: Two Small Dogs and a Great Fire.
A sad, tragic tale to be sure. but I don't think you can be a mean, inconsiderate, imperious fuck and not expect something really bad happening to you eventually. However, you run the risk, Cholly, of calling up an unpleasant fate as well when you're take away from this tragedy is, "Wow, isn't this street nicer without that old bastard and those little yappy-assed dogs?" Even if seems that way.

The thing I remember most about public transportation in Vancouver is how frequently buses ran - especially downtown. Yes, buses were crowded certain times of the day, but you miss a bus in Vancouver? No problem. There's another one in 7 minutes. The thing I remember most about public transportation in Seattle is waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting. It would take all day to run a couple of errands and get back home.
Aug 24, 2016 Bauhaus I commented on The Coming Death of One of Seattle's Few Black-Loved Supermarkets.
Welcome to my world. Think of all the different supermarkets there used to be in Seattle: QFC, Larry's, Safeway, Treadwell, etc. And all of them slightly different serving a different market/neighborhood. In Los Angeles, there used to be Alpha Beta, Hughes, Vons, Ralphs, Market Basket, Safeway, etc. Again, each with its own personality. Many grocers have disappeared. The remaining ones are all Kroger-owned or Safeway-Albertsons-owned, and they are all pretty much alike. You probably can't find pig's feet or chitterlings anywhere outside of the South short of a special order. In point of fact, many neighborhoods have lost their friendly, local grocer.
