There's a man passed out on the sidewalk in front of Jabu's Pub in Lower Queen Anne. He looks sleepy! What do you do? recommended

Kelly O -- why ask us what to do? You seem to have already become an expert on the answer to your question, namely:

Take a photo, post it on the website of your shitty 'newspaper' employer, and keep telling yourself that your 'job' isn't the meaningless, unnecessary, dead-end position that it so obviously has become.

@2. So, who pissed in your cornflakes? Here's a heads up for you, (if you can understand it), if you don't like The Stranger's Drunk of the Week (ready?), don't f**king read it!! I'm sure you've got lots of this to do, like color-by-numbers.

@4: Whoa. Who pissed in your cornflakes? If you don't like the Stranger comments (wait for it): You don't have to read them. P.S. Kelly O is, by a mile, the most vestigal member on the staff of this august journalistic outfit.

There's lots and lots (and LOTS!) of other "shitty" newspapers you can pee on, if you're getting bored here.

ALSO? "Vestigal" Ha Ha Ha!

Haughtily responding in forced laughter to a missing "i" only serves to illustrate ctmcmull's point...

...not to mention the sweet use of ALL CAPS.

@4, The term "wait for it" is a vestige of something that was once very funny, say, more than 30 years ago. When Monty Python first used it. It is now annoying and extremely lame. Like you. If you don't like Kelly's column, don't read it. Now STFU and stop ruining our fun.

Those who can, do; those who can't, criticize.

Actually, those who can, also criticize.

The acts of doing and criticizing are not mutually exclusive, except if, as in the case of portland scribe, people lack the wisdom to discern

Taking Texas' point one step further, those who can are usually more adept at criticism due to experience. I'm confident that ctmcmull could do, therefore I accept his/her expression as valid, whether or not I agree.

What is the basis for your declaration, "...those who can are usually more adept at criticism due to experience."

You use the word "usually." I do not think it means what you think it means.

It this purely anecdotal in which the drummer-boyfriend was "great on stage" but a lousy teacher?

Those "who criticize", may also include those who "do", and who have immense experience doing, but are now also critics or masters who choose to teach.

Those who only do, may be ill-suited for teaching or incompetent in criticism, even if they are masters of that which they do.
