...no longer a first-time commenter

long-time reader is, because he thinks.
Dec 23, 2016 long-time reader commented on Police Reports Illustrated: Clean Clothes Cause Crime.
@6, if your statistics are true, then we should be more afraid of unarmed people than people with canes. Which sounds fair.
Dec 16, 2016 long-time reader commented on The Year the Music Died.
Bernie Worrell.
Dec 15, 2016 long-time reader commented on Oyster Factory, A Very Important Film About Japan's Aging Labor Crisis.
@1, did you not read the whole article? By his use of the n-word, I think Mr. Mudede made it perfectly clear that he considers the xenophobia to be racism.
Dec 14, 2016 long-time reader commented on The Wonders of Working Out with Weed.
An intoxicated cyclist is mostly a danger to him or herself.

Comparing cycling to driving a car is the height of false equivalency.
Dec 8, 2016 long-time reader commented on Portland to Tax CEOs Who Earn Way More Money Than Their Rank-And-File Employees.
If your CEO works 100 times as hard as your average worker, fire those workers. Otherwise, you need to drastically reform your compensation structure.
Dec 7, 2016 long-time reader commented on Dan Savage's Open Letter to Paul Allen on Lidding I-5, Righting a Wrong, and Leaving a Legacy.
Great letter, notwithstanding that pointless, tacky dig at hippies and "sensitive millennials". Isn't sensitivity a laudable characteristic, anyway? You're being *insensitive*, and that reflects poorly on you.
Nov 28, 2016 long-time reader commented on Food News: All of Your Old Favorites Are Slowly Disappearing But at Least You Can Comfort Yourself with Dumplings and Vegan Ice Cream.
I don't know what the fuck that silvery-grayish liquid is on those spoons; but it cannot possibly be edible. It looks like industrial adhesive.
Nov 22, 2016 long-time reader commented on You Will Enjoy Jody Rosen's Epic Twitter Rant on Bullshit "Urban Elites vs. Middle Americans" Clichés.
Yeah... I'm not sure exactly what Twitter is good for, but this definitely ain't it.
Nov 22, 2016 long-time reader commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Dear Old—Really Old—Mom and Dad.
The previous post ends with a question, yet comments are disabled. WTF, Jen Graves?!
Nov 20, 2016 long-time reader commented on Letter to the Editor: "If We Glance Away, Even for a Second...".
@2, that's a powerful story, but as a bike mechanic I'm wondering what tools you would have brought to fix this particular problem. Did you bring a cordless drill and a drill bit to drill his rim to accept Schrader valves?
