Here's the link that Matt is too snarky and full of himself to post, as if his snide take on the matter is an excuse for not providing convenience for Slog readers.

It's going to be great when this bat shit insane SCOTUS goes after their rights. All of the people cheering in glee about women being demoted to subhuman incubators and the incarcerated having to suck up shitty legal representation are going to lose their fucking minds when their rights get gutted. I mean, who cares, right? Until the court decides you don't deserve human rights either.

"You don’t need a car to get to some great trails! Go take a bus to a fine hike."

Join the crowds on the little hikes so you don't get cabin fever living in the cubicle in the air! Limited life of the Urban Junkie. Want to go to Port Townsend on a whim? Forget it. No buses!

Heck, I’ll thank Mayor Harrel for giving us back Woodland Park.

Right now, we have a development drama in our little corner of Beacon Hill. A full city block that has never been developed (in part because of steep slopes) is set to become 44 townhomes, but the NIMBY’s are suddenly realizing that we don’t have a park, and that we need tribal blessing. Public hearings are forthcoming!

@1 As always, fuck off.

@1,

I see plenty of widely respected news sources neglecting to link to disturbing video these days. Give it a rest.

Bummer about the NYC pay phones! I know I've answered at least a couple randomly ringing public phones in my day. Always seemed such an enticing prospect, fraught with all the possibility and excitement that I could soon be speaking to anyone, anywhere, about anything. Don't recall how any of those conversations went of course, and so it's probably safe to assume the boundless possibility of those calls failed to delver on their potential, but still!

RIP.

@8: Not including a link is fine. Describing an available link but deliberately not linking to it is playing games with the reader, standoffish, annoying, if not rude - regardless of the subject.

Great story on the Ballard Car-jacking! I hope they don't keep him locked up - he's a source of great entertainment!

"....He’s been convicted of 12 felonies, including assault and criminal mischief and has had 28 arrests. Popplewell was recently charged with 3 felonies including residential burglary, attempted vehicle theft and possession of a stolen car.
On May 6th, his defense argued for temporary release so he could go to treatment, but prosecutors argued against the release because of his history.
But he was allowed to go on house arrest, and on May 14th, he cut tampered with his ankle monitor.
Prosecutors requested warrants for his felony charges.
A week on May 21st, police say the carjacking happened....."

@6 we recently had nimbys force the city to buy an undeveloped woodlot to maintain it as their personal backyard rather than risk exposure to new taxpaying neighbors in Olympia, it is infuriating (and housing remains unaffordable).

I’d like to thank Mayor Harrell for clearing the encampments out of Ballard Commons, the Leary Triangle, Gilman Playfield, and for the increased police presence along 3rd Avenue.

To understand the history of planned improvements for the 48, it helps to go back to Mayor Murray, and SDOT chief Scott Kubly. They were in charge when the city passed "Move Seattle", that was supposed to fund several big improvements for transportation in the city. They were corrupt or incompetent (or likely, a mix of both) and when the levy passed, informed everyone that it wouldn't pay for much of what was planned. This included improvements on 23rd. A lot of the history has been wiped clean, but on page 82 of an archived document you can see "Corridor 4" https://web.archive.org/web/20170217132131/http://www.seattle.gov/transportation/docs/TMP/SEATTLETMPSupplmtALL1116PMFINAL.pdf.

This was to be a combination of the 48 and the 7. That idea was nixed fairly quickly, but it made sense to add all of the improvements listed there. This should include BAT lanes from 520 to Thomas, and then again from Jackson to Rainier. It wouldn't be as much as on some other corridors, but it would likely make a huge difference. It is also likely that there will be BAT lanes on top of 520, once the dust settles. This will not only speed up the 48, but express buses from the UW to the East Side (e. g. the 255).

It is a shame these improvements are moving so slowly, but you can only blame the current administration -- or even the previous one -- so much. Kubly was eventually replaced with Zimbabwe, who did a pretty good job.The proposal for the 40 is outstanding. Now he is gone, and the acting director probably doesn't want to do anything bold. They are also struggling with lack of funds, partly due to Kubly and Murray's mismanagement.

@5 -- There are buses to Port Townsend -- they just don't run that often. After you take a ferry, you have to take buses from two different counties (Kitsap and Jefferson). Neither county has a huge amount of money to spend on transit, and relatively few riders. There just aren't that many people headed to Port Townsend, and it is a long distance. This makes it very expensive.

18

Yes, there are still working pay phones in Seattle.

But you can discover them for yourself.

19

Comrade Harrell doesn't get that Seattle doesn't like Mayors who think they work for the suburbanites instead of the actual voting citizens.

Another in a long line of Epic Fails.

@14: It was all about Matt's anger at Jason Rantz. There is nothing particularly upsetting about a car crash, expect stupid people.

21

The video doesn't even show the hammer being used. It was out of range.

20, Matt took a dig at an unnamed radio host you like for tagging his brand on a video of people being assaulted, which upset you more than your favorite radio host using a violent attack as a vehicle for self-promotion, and rather than reflecting on the depravity of your media diet you lashed out at the guy who made you feet bad about it. I’m no psychologist but you don’t have to be one to see what’s going on here.

24

“the video of the assault doesn’t even show the hammer”

My god, the things people tell themselves to justify casual violence as entertainment. When i was a kid we needed an adult rent faces of death for us, now you can just tune in to your local right wing media program. Who cares about the social cost of numbing people to violence, we’ve got liberal coastal cities to shame.

25

@23: You make no sense as I have no idea who assaulted who in the crash aftermath, nor do I know who was to blame. I didn’t have a dog in this fight. Sorry, but your extrapolations are inaccurate.

26

@24: Matt didn’t mention the hammer. You teased the hammer, I clarified the video doesn’t show it. So?

27

i didn’t tease shit you posted a link to a video called “terrifying road rage hammer assault”

28

I didn't see any more information on GenderCool's project that's being vilified. I wanted to point out that the WA chapter of GLSEN has an ongoing Rainbow Library project that sends LGBTQ-related books to middle and high schools.

@27: ok, mea culpa, I overlooked that the headline/url of that mynorthwest article had those words.

@19: "Comrade Harrell doesn't get that Seattle doesn't like Mayors who think they work for the suburbanites instead of the actual voting citizens."

Then why are "actual voting citizens" of Seattle thanking him, right here in this very comment thread?

(Oh, and on the topic of Seattle's Mayors, and citizens' perceptions thereof, how's that RECALL DURKAN thing working out for you?)
