You guys, this is real. I didn’t think it was real, but for whatever reason I searched for it at Powell’s again, and there it was. And I just plunked down some hard earned money for it. Expect me to go chapter by chapter through it at some point either here or at HA. It’ll be a while, as there’s a long queue of non shitty books ahead of it, and it hasn’t even shipped yet. But oh my God, I’m so excited.

Pastor Hutch plans to sue the state for teaching evolution. And that’s bound for failure and all, but I’d like to focus on a phrase he keeps using.
Dear Prayer Warrior,
That’s me! How can I go to war?
Put your prayer knee pads on. I think God is leading me to raise support to sue the state of Washington Board of Education for teaching a known lie, evolution. Let’s see how we can win this battle and then take it to the federal level.
Seriously, how many sets of knee pads do you think I have?
So, I know this is super mean spirited and all, but I noticed a while ago that Dino Rossi’s last tweet of the campaign said that there would be more information forthcoming. In early November. This is a worse blackout than here recently.
Surely when the campaign worker posted that, they were aware that Patty Murray would probably win. Couldn’t he have done the classy thing and said good things about Patty or the classless thing and somehow blamed the state supreme court?
Perception about parking is almost as important as the rates themselves. There is no good reason for Seattle to have rates among the highest in the nation, which, at $4 an hour, is exactly what we will have.
If perception is so awful (and matters more than the facts!), why not praise it? Why not talk about the low low prices? And I thought The Seattle Times was for user fees now (um, for small government).
A very good example is Pioneer Square. The latest plan would set rates at $3.50 an hour. Yes, the neighborhood is close to the stadiums, but $3.50 an hour is too high in a place trying to reinvent itself following the loss of Elliott Bay Book Co., which moved to Capitol Hill last year. Do not forget, construction is expected to begin later this year on the deep-bore tunnel replacement for the Alaskan Way Viaduct and that compounds Pioneer Square’s woes.
Remember how you fought to push through the tunnel that McGinn doesn’t want? Now you’re saying he has to keep rates lower because the tunnel will fuck Pioneer Square up? I assume this doesn’t mean we’re seeing a sudden change of heart on the part of The Seattle Times.
And not being able to find parking when there’s a game is somehow not a problem for Pioneer Square businesses?
