It is completely out of line. Public funds go to repairing the public streets, which are for the use of the public. If you prohibit the public from using a street, then it's just your driveway and you need to pay for it yourself.
I'm all for using public funds to repair these bits of roadway, but they need to be re-dedicated to the public use again first.

commented on Restaurant Recommendations for Shabu-Shabu and Chicago-Style Pizza (in Seattle!)
I love Kylie's. It is my favorite pizza place in Seattle. It is patterned after Zachary's Chicago Pizza in Berkeley, so it is a kind of Chicago-style pizza, but is slightly different than what some Chicagoans expect. On the other hand, I have friends who live in Chicago who say it's better than any pizza they've had there, so there's that.

What I don't understand is why the Seattle Times gives a damn about supporting Yoshitani's right to make an obscene amount of money through this potential conflict of interest. Aren't they usually trying to cut public employee pay? Or does that only apply to the rank and file and not people of the Blethens' socioeconomic class?
