thanks for writing this ansel. sinderman = sleazy.
@1: you make a valid point but that doesn't make the move any less manipulative, which is a bigger evil in my eyes.
Oct 30, 2015 captain underpants commented on Nightlife Guy Dave Meinert Endorses Kshama Sawant and Tim Burgess for Reelection.
doesn't live in Seattle but feels compelled to make public council endorsements simply because he owns multiple businesses there?

meinert = tool.

and this comes from someone who loves and will continue to patronize the 5 point.

echoing many here, but terrific piece charles. @4, outside of rush hour(s), rainier is routinely viewed as a deathtrap by folks that live and work on it. in ny experience, the recent road diet has helped (and the community is generally thrilled about the improvements), but clearly the street still has a long way to go.

or, ya know, he could just be making the endorsement because he likes grant's politics better than burgess'. i'm sure any despising went both ways, too.

Oct 2, 2015 captain underpants commented on We Are Condemned to Live With Guns.
i'm mostly on board with @1 here. i generally love your stuff charles but this is way navel gazey and in no tangible way related to what happened yesterday. for one to assume that a default response to "yelling at a dark house at night" = violent gun response seems a bit extreme, even considering our PDs recent track record (but then again, look at the evidence in this case, a violent response from police/neighbors DIDN'T happen).

also, your guest didn't have a cell phone he call your yours (or your landline, or other members of your household) with? seems like there are lost of ways that this situation could have been "solved," regardless of dissolved melatonin.
Oct 2, 2015 captain underpants commented on I Wish People Would Stop Disparaging Condos.
there are parts that are problematic with this article, but i'm glad it was published. as with most things, the pervasive "condos=bad" discourse that dominates the conversation of seattle's urbanization is incredibly grey.
Sep 22, 2015 captain underpants commented on Voices from the Protest Lines: Falun Gong Supporters Speak Out Near President Xi Jinping's Seattle Hotel.
thank you Sydney for this piece. easily the most compelling coverage i've seen of the visit thus far. i especially appreciate that interviews from "both sides" are included.
Sep 10, 2015 captain underpants commented on Football Season Is About to Start, So Where the Hell Is Kam Chancellor?.
i'd say i only agree with this article's thesis ~65% (agree on dangerous precedent setting, but am willing to make the deal as this team's "safe bet as SB winner" window is closing more than opening. don't get be wrong, they'll be very good for a while, just more of a longshot bet in the next 2-3 years...).

but the real point of this comment is to say that while i only partially agree with this article, i'm thrilled that it was written and am so glad to have spikes writing back. one of the best in the local hawks coverage biz in my mind.

also, DOUG. is 100% correct. 19-0 FTW.
