How does backing up the freeway for a conflict thousands of miles away which apparently no longer even exists help anything? What a bunch of a-holes.
The Seattle Human Rights commission is a waste of money right now. Is it any wonder no one untie city listens to them?
Hannah, if you'll print that CNBC story you linked to, and have someone read it to you, you may find that Justice Barrett rejected two emergency applications to stop the student loan forgiveness order. She didn't even bother to buck them up to the full court.
@2 You expect HanHann to understand the stories she links to in her aggregation posts? First time here? ; )
Such an overwhelmingly huge image of Donald.
I find Hannah's recaps pretty much unreadable. The fact that she totally got the Amy Covid Barrett story wrong erases the "pretty much" for me. Do better, Stranger. Time to cut this one loose.
yeah well most
of us can get it
remains an issue
for forgiveness challenges
The main obstacle for those hoping to foil the president’s action has been finding a plaintiff who can prove they’ve been harmed by the policy, experts say.
After the initial lawsuit, the Education Department said that borrowers can opt out if they do not want to have their loans forgiven."
gotta Wonder how
many Takers stood Up
and did the Right Thing and
fell on their Sword as it Were

Permanent DST sucks. We already have proof because (did you even know this?) WE ALREADY TRIED IT in 1974, and everyone was so miserable from a lack of daylight in the mornings that it was abandoned after just a few months. But I guess stupid ideas bubble up again for those who don't bother looking into them.
Yeah people don’t understand the consequences of permanent DST. Science says standard time is more in line with our natural circadian rhythm.
"Good for them!"
Hannah probably wrote that blissfully unaware of the predictable ramifications, like the medic unit that gut stuck by the protesters on the way to Harborview.
Umbrellas used to be for tourists when we were younger when rain was little more than a glorified mist. I remember a solid downpour being maybe once or twice a season 30 + years ago. The weather is different now and umbrellas now make sense for Seattlites at times.
I get so tired of people whining about the time change. They wring their hands and talk about car wrecks, heart attacks, and what-about-the-children? But as Our Dear Parah Salin noted, we already tried it and it was horrible. In 1974, my route to school involved a trail and a detour around a washout. I know, I sound like Grandmother Vel-DuRay here, complaining about "kids these days" but it was fun in the daylight. In the dark it was terrible. Once we got down to the main road, we were still walking in the dark, and we had to be doubly careful about cars.
Face the facts: The planet has an orbit. Winter is the time when we don't get much daylight, so we might as well make the most of it by adjusting the time. If one hour makes such a difference that it drives one to complete collapse, one should get their affairs in order, for life it too harsh for such a precious being.

@15 be a rock and just sit there in silence. No one cares what you think.
@18: So you take issue with me complimenting Catalina Vel-DurRay? Or, you took any comment to pounce on?
@16: Didn't know that. Wow - just one time zone. What a horrible thing to do to your people.
@20 I think it’s been that way since Mao.
It’s GMT +8 which is where Beijing sits. I’m pretty certain the majority of the population (at least most major cities) are geographically +8 as well, though Hong Kong might be +9.
Western China which is mostly rural would be +5.
Does it really matter what time it is, when you’re jumping into the suicide net?
I heard from my cousin in Jamaica that the CEO of ShotSpotter is a pedo.

"I just need to tell someone about this: Last night, the Seattle Human Rights Commission discussed legislation to condemn the City’s relentless sweeps and give the mutual aid group, Stop the Sweeps, thousands of dollars that the City Council gave the commission to throw a Human Rights Day celebration."

@6: "the Education Department said that borrowers can opt out"
I don't understand how this loan forgiveness is supposed to work. Is it a one-time thing for current year graduates? Or an ongoing annual program? If it's the latter, perhaps we could streamline the application process. Those who apply for loans to attend expensive schools could be handed the forgiveness paperwork at that time and get it all out of the way. In effect, telling the lenders that, No, they will not be paying the loans back. I wonder what happens to loan availability at this point.
If it's an ongoing, federally funded forgiveness program, then why don't we just bite the bullet and make them all grants? Here's some money. Get a degree. Good luck with your life. And then the gov't would just step in and be the single payer for said grants. Giving them the ability to allocate funds to worthwhile degrees. Engineering, science and technology degrees? Great! Here's your tuition money. Liberal arts, working to become a columnist for the likes of The Stranger? Sorry. We're full up already.

@31 kristofarian: I always get nervous at election time. Having to mass delete spam emails on a daily basis only exacerbates the problem. Here's hoping the GOP faces mass extinction from Tuesday's outcome, and soon.
