          Dave Reichert Cements Legacy as Coward Who Hides from His Own Constituents      Cache   Translate Page      
Though we're all still cutting Reichert a check, he's cutting us off from communication. by Rich Smith
Dave is being Dave, again.
Dave is being Dave, again. MARK WILSON / GETTY

Though retiring Congressman Dave Reichert is still collecting a paycheck from his constituents, he apparently doesn't want to hear what they have to say anymore.

Tuesday morning, members of Indivisible Washington 8 attempted to call Reichert to ask him to vote against a number of bills slated for next week—including the bad Farm Bill—but found his district office phones disconnected. When they called his D.C. office phone, they were met with a recording from Reichert thanking constituents for letting him "serve them for the last 14 years" and instructing them to contact Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell if they needed help. That message has since been replaced with an automated recording saying that the line is "a nonworking number at the U.S. House of Representatives."

Votes have been canceled this week due to the death of George H. W. Bush, but Congress is still in session. The regularly scheduled legislative program will pick up next Monday and continue through Dec. 13. Reichert last voted YES on a name change to an official government title on November 30. He should be around—he's just ghosting his own district.

Jason Galanes, chief of staff for retiring Republican Congressman Frank LoBiondo (NJ-2), told me over the phone that there is "no standard" exit procedure for retiring members of Congress.

"Every member runs their office individually," Galanes said. "With retiring and defeated members, some decide 'that’s it' and some decide they’re going to go til January 3 at 11:59 am—it’s very individual." Galanes added that LoBiondo's staff is still clearly answering the phones, and that the Congressman will still be showing up for votes.

Zach, a staffer for retiring Democratic Congressman Gene Green (TX-29), said that his boss is "keeping as much contact available for as long as he can." Though all outgoing members of Congress have to vacate their D.C. office at the end of November, many redirect D.C. lines to district offices so constituents can still stay in touch.

"Once there are no more legislative days, there really isn’t a need to staff the communications lines for legislative issues," he added. "In regards to casework, we’ll keep doing that and hand it off to the incoming member."

So, in cutting off lines of communication, Reichert is not following some standard procedural shutdown of his Congressional offices. He's showing us what kind of Congressman he is and has always been. The kind who doesn't show up for town halls. The kind who dreams of putting "hard doors"—and even landlords—between him and the people he claims to serve. The kind who doesn't want input from the people he represents because he thinks he knows better.

Right now we're gassing refugees at the border, cutting food stamps for poor people, and making it harder for sexual assault survivors to report violence to their schools. And while reps like Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal have are going out of their way to do something about all that, Reichert has decided to go silent. This is his legacy.

          It's Official: Single-Family Zoning Is Making Our City More White      Cache   Translate Page      
A new report from the city shows in stark detail how the city's exclusionary single-family zoning is reinforcing segregation and making the city more white. by Lester Black
Our city has set aside the majority of housing space in our city for mostly white, mostly rich people.
Our city has set aside the majority of housing space in our city for mostly white, mostly rich people. Getty

Single-family zoning is a racist policy. That’s the biggest takeaway from Seattle Planning Commission’s latest report, a study that paints the racist effects of single-family zoning in stark detail.

Exclusionary zoning—which makes small-scale multifamily units like rowhouses or small courtyard apartment buildings illegal in the majority of our city—is making our city whiter while reinforcing Seattle’s segregationist policies of the past.

“The impacts of redlining, racially restrictive covenants, and disinvestment remain today and perpetuate racial segregation in Seattle,” the Seattle Planning Commission (SPC) authors write. “The growing economic exclusivity of detached housing in single-family zones contributes to disparity along racial lines by continuing the legacy of excluding all but those who have the economic resources to buy homes” (emphasis added).

Single-family zoning evangelists like the Seattle Times Editorial Board will argue that this is a problem of economic opportunity, and not one of racial equity. The SPC report makes it very clear that this argument is bullshit. If you create a system (single-family zoning) where the majority of the city is arbitrarily restricted to only the richest, and wealth in our city is a proxy for race, then you have created a racist system. Single-family zoning laws might not make any mention of race, but they sure look a lot like modern day segregation.

The city has essentially set aside the majority of our city for the wealthiest and whitest group of people, according to SPC’s analysis. Around 75 percent of the land available to housing in the city is zoned for single families. And the majority of people that have access to these neighborhoods are white and rich. Of the white people that live in Seattle, 51 percent are homeowners. Meanwhile, homeownership is only half that for black and Hispanic people (Asian people are closer to white ownership rates, although still smaller at 44 percent). And most of those white people that compromise the majority of these exclusionary neighborhoods are wealthy. The median annual income for homeowners was over $122,000 in 2016, for renters it was only about $57,000. Only 20 percent of single-family homes are renter occupied.

Screen_Shot_2018-12-04_at_1.27.12_PM.png
SPC

Let’s connect the dots here: We are living in a system where the majority of our city is reserved for mostly white, mostly rich people.

Single-family zoning is only making these policies worse. Anyone that has spent time in Seattle’s single-family neighborhoods can see that they are changing rapidly, but instead of growing denser to accommodate a diverse population, they are just getting whiter and richer. Some of the biggest changes in neighborhood character are the appearance of massive millionaire homes on once modest properties, or what Mike Baker at the Seattle Times describes as “McMansions.”

And these larger McMansions don’t house more people, they just provide bigger segregated housing for rich mostly white people. The number of people living in these walled-off rich person enclaves is actually decreasing even while our city adds more than 20,000 people over a year. Neighborhoods like Magnolia, Crown Hill, Leschi, Madrona, and parts of Wallingford are actually decreasing in housing density. These are the neighborhoods with the most green spaces and schools, according to the SPC report, and we’re making them available only to the richest and mostly white people that can afford them.

One of the SPC report’s recommendations is to reduce the amount of single-family zoning in the city and encourage small-scale, multi-family units. They are not arguing for building glassy towers in Wallingford, they’re arguing for building the so-called “missing middle” housing. These are the types of low-rise apartment buildings and row houses that can easily incorporate into single-family neighborhoods while also providing dramatically more housing per square foot. Lowrise zoning can accommodate 27 units per acre, whereas a single-family zoning can accommodate only six.

Screen_Shot_2018-12-04_at_1.26.12_PM.png
SPC

These types of courtyard apartments are already in the very neighborhoods that the Seattle Times and other anti-density zealots want to keep poor people out of. Most of the city was open to multifamily units until the late 1950s, and you can still see these lowrise multi-family buildings across Seattle. In fact, these very apartment buildings are what make some of these neighborhoods like Wallingford so attractive and livable. The SPC authors believe that if we brought more of these types of units back they would make Seattle of today more hospitable to more a diverse group of people.

Anti-density zealots like the Seattle Times employ particularly stark and violent terminology when they address the idea of building a two-story courtyard apartment in Seattle’s neighborhoods. In a recent foul editorial the Times said Mayor Jenny Durkan would be remembered as a politician that “took an ax to single-family neighborhoods” if she implemented an extremely modest zoning change that recently won a lengthy court battle.

Monday’s SPC report demands that we ask what it is the Times is describing in such violent terms. They don’t simply mean that Durkan would be responsible for bringing construction to these neighborhoods if she modestly upzoned certain areas. New construction is already happening in these neighborhoods and their character is changing; the houses are getting larger and more of their occupants are white. This process is what the Times is defending and the opposite—a change that would make it more likely that a brown family or poor family could move into Wallingford—is taking an ax to the neighborhood.

That sounds pretty racist.

          With Alfonso Cuarón's Roma, the Netflix vs. Theater Debate Continues      Cache   Translate Page      
by Erik Henriksen
roma.jpg
Roma (Netflix)

I've got a review for Alfonso Cuarón's Roma coming up in our next issue, in which I join the ranks of monocle-polishing, deeply punchable critics everywhere by insisting that you just have to see it in a theater. Cuarón's film—at this point, the runaway contender for the best picture of the year—is being distributed by Netflix, but it'll also have a relatively small theatrical release starting on December 14, the same date it's available to stream. (Portland, we're lucky: The Hollywood Theatre's getting it.)

2018 marks the first year that Netflix and movie theaters (at least some of them) are cooperating on any sort of meaningful scale; in the past, many theaters have refused to show Netflix- or Amazon-produced films while they were also available to stream, out of fear that moviegoers would, you know, just stay home. Meanwhile, Netflix didn't seem terribly inclined to share its movies with theaters, because, hey, they've already got a more effective distribution service than any theater chain could offer.

But in light of a few new Netflix films with Oscar potential—Roma and the Coen brothers' The Ballad of Buster Scruggs—and with a newfound willingness to humor filmmakers who want their films shown theatrically, Netflix is starting to push a few movies into a few theaters, sometimes before they're available to stream, and some theaters are now willing to show Netflix movies, even if they're already available to stream.

It's just about impossible to see this as anything but a good thing. Hollywood's few remaining studios of relevance have almost entirely pivoted to franchise blockbusters, abandoning mid-budget and traditionally "arthouse" movies—so I'll take a new movie from the Coens or Cuarón however I can get it, even if that means dealing with soulless streaming giants. The tension—for me, at least—comes when theaters try to declare that all movies have to be seen in a theater, or when streamers insist it doesn't matter where you watch a movie.

Earlier this week, Netflix's head of content, Ted Sarandos, took a swipe at theatrical exhibitors, saying theatrical release windows have "disconnected people from movies" and that emotionally, it's the same to watch a movie on Netflix as it is to see it in a theater:

"I don't think it’s very consumer-friendly that consumers who don’t happen to live near a theater are waiting six months, eight months to see a movie," Sarandos said. "I don't disagree that going to the theater to see a movie is a great experience. I don't think emotionally it's a different experience than seeing a movie on Netflix. It is a different physical experience for sure."

Nobody but the shittiest of film snobs can argue with making movies more accessible—there is no downside to the fact everyone who has a Netflix login will soon be able to watch Roma, regardless of whether or not they live close to an arthouse theater that might book the film.

But I do wish Netflix would be honest about theatrical and streaming being as different as they are. It will be a different emotional experience to watch Roma in a theater—the same way seeing Dunkirk in a theater is different or, hell, Avengers: Infinity War is different. When you're watching a movie—an art form dependent on one's eyes and ears—there isn't a divide between the emotional experience and the "physical experience." Roma's striking sound mix, or Dunkirk's stunning visuals, or the bombast and scale of something like Infinity War all contribute to those films' stories, and they rely on the audience being enveloped in images and sound. Unless you've spent thousands of dollars on a home theater, these are the kind of stories with images brighter and bigger than your TV can offer, with sounds too complex or booming to be delivered via laptop speakers.

That's not to say one way of watching a movie is necessarily better than the other—a ton of films work just as well at home as they would in a theater. (Another Netflix-released film, Noah Baumbach's The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), immediately comes to mind.) But again, and to use Roma as an example: When a movie looks and sounds as remarkable as Roma does, and when those sights and sounds are so deeply tied to the film's story, a viewer is going to have a very different experience seeing and hearing it in a decent theater than they would in their living room.

The physical affects the emotional. Which means as long as streaming services keep making great movies, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that theaters and streaming services will continue to at least sort of get along. Making films widely accessible is super important. But so is being able to choose how to watch those films. Those shouldn't need to be mutually exclusive.

          The Best Opening Sentence to a Savage Love Letter—Ever      Cache   Translate Page      
Savage Love Letter of the Day by Dan Savage
Originally published on Nov. 10, 2010.

1525120010-1516999045-savage-letter-of-the-day-stamp-2018.jpg

Do I have a duty to disclose to my wife that a guy licked my balls?

My wife and I have twice indulged our fantasy of having MFM threesomes. These two encounters are the only activities we’ve done outside our otherwise monogamous relationship. We advertised for straight men to respond.
The first encounter went well enough. We tried many of the positions we’ve watched in porn and talked about trying and fantasized about in dirty talk during our love making. The guy was nice enough, but after we were done we realized that we may have put to much thought into it and had perhaps been to prepared. The encounter came off a bit scripted and non-spontaneous.

For the second encounter my wife wanted a hung guy. We advertised for that and picked a guy in town on business and met him at his hotel. He was indeed hung, and very, very thick. We were clear with the guy that I was straight and that we wanted a straight guy. I did disclose to him that part of my wife's fantasy was to have her clit licked while the other guy was fucking her. I described the position and how it would happen (I’d be the licker and him the fucker) and assured him there would be no "M to M" contact.

Near the beginning of our encounter I was behind my wife doggy style while she gave him head. He crawled underneath and got into a 69 position with her which I thought was pretty gung ho of him to do some clit licking while I was fucking her. Soon it became apparent that the feeling I had of his tongue on my balls was more than incidental. It kind of took me out of the moment as I was thinking, "This guy’s not licking her clit, he’s licking my balls.” It didn’t last long because I pulled out and we got into another position. At no other time did he attempt to have other than incidental contact with me. Later in the encounter we got into the position I described to him and I licked her clit while he fucked her and there was not even incidental contact between his balls and my tongue.

Question 1: Do I have a duty to disclose to my wife that I think this guy was licking my balls? I don’t know what good would come of it and I don’t want to cause drama where none exists. I’m not traumatized by the fact myself. I didn’t like it, but I’ve got no problems with the fact that it happened. My wife may have a problem with it. Should I tell her or not?

Question 2: By disclosing my wife’s fantasy of being licked and fucked at the same time, did I implicitly consent to have my balls licked by this guy? Does that come with the territory and is it something we should expect if we do this again in the future?

Balls Already Licked Last Summer

Before I respond to Question 1 and Question 2, BALLS, there's something I just gotta say: I've received tens of thousands of letters over the years—hundreds of thousands—but your opening sentence is the best opening sentence ever. "Do I have a duty to disclose to my wife that a guy licked my balls?" How could I not read the rest of your letter after that? How could I not use your letter as the SLLOTD? Well done, BALLS, well done.

Question 1: I don't think you have a duty to disclose, BALLS, particularly as you don't have a problem with it and you worry the wife may. That said, however, I think you should disclose. The ball licking was something that happened to you; it wasn't something that you asked for or initiated. Your wife—even if she's upset about the ball-licking incident—should be able to recognize that you were the victim here. Your balls were deliciously attacked, brutally tongue-bashed, by this dude. However upset the wife is about your balls, BALLS, she shouldn't be angry with you.

And I'm thinking there's a good chance your wife won't be angry, BALLS. A woman who wants to be fucked by one man while another man licks her clit is, at the very least, comfortable with idea of two sexually aroused males in close proximity to each other. Some incidental male-on-male contact—whether intentional or not—would be hard to avoid if one man's dick is going to be in her vagina while another man's tongue is licking her clit. (I'm trying to picture how you do that without Man A's balls someone's balls slapping Man B's forehead, BALLS, and I can't quite see it.)

As a general rule, BALLS, "otherwise monogamous" partners have a duty to check in with each other before, during, and after the odd threesome. Both partners should be free to share what worked, what didn't, and what will need to be done differently if there's gonna be a next time. You should want to know if something happened during a threesome that made your wife uncomfortable, BALLS, because that's the only way it could be controlled for next time. She should want to know what did and didn't work for you.

Question 2: Don't blame yourself, BALLS.

You were clear with this guy about seeking a straight dude for this MFM threesome and you "assured him there would be no 'M to M' contact." It's possible that he misunderstood you, BALLS. He may have assumed that you were offering him that assurance—no "M to M" was expected of him—to set him, a straight guy, at ease about your expectations. But informing a third that you don't expect any contact with him is not the same as telling him that you neither desire nor welcome any contact with him. So the ball licking may have been his way of saying, "Hey, I'm fine with a little 'M to M' contact, just so you know."

And that your third was fine with a little M to M contact in the context of a MFM threesome doesn't mean he's actually bisexual or gay and lied to you about being straight. Some straight guys are secure enough in their sexualities to indulge in a little "M to M" during a MFM threesome.

If this is something you don't want to go through again, BALLS, be more explicitly explicit with your future thirds during negotiations: "We're looking for a straight guy—I'm not bi, not at all, and I'm not interested in any direct sexual contact with you. One time when we did this with someone else the guy licked my balls for a second. I wasn't traumatized or anything, and it didn't bring the evening to a halt, but we're really not interested in anything like that happening again."

          Booze Industry Supports Cannabis Legalization—with a Catch      Cache   Translate Page      
by Josh Jardine
starflowers-detail.jpg
Mercury Staff

The cannabis and alcohol industries have a complex relationship, built upon a history of beer and spirit companies contributing millions of dollars to groups like D.A.R.E.—which as you may recall, did not exactly strongly advocate for a regulated, taxed cannabis program, nor did it include alcohol as a drug that young people should avoid.

All this seems to be changing, as big alcohol has embraced the multitude of therapeutic benefits that cannabis can offer, and wishes to support its green friend to help the people heal and... ha ha no, of course not. It's money. Big alcohol is now dropping its attacks on cannabis because there are potentially billions of dollars to be made, and it would be a crime against humanity if they weren't getting some of that money.

The best cannabis website you probably aren't reading but should, Marijuana Moment, reports that one of the alcohol industry's largest trade groups briefed Congress on cannabis last week. The group, Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA), released a statement in July supporting the idea that the feds should allow states to legalize cannabis as they see fit.

Included in the briefing was a one-sheet of policy recommendations, which includes things that the cannabis industry is already aware of, and is taking or has already taken action on, such as: reducing out-of-state diversion, insuring that minors do not have access to cannabis, establishing standards for safe product testing, effective tax collections, and other actions that both industries are in agreement are critical to establishing a safe and vibrant regulated cannabis program.

One thing the WSWA did state is its desire to see vertical integration in the cannabis industry eliminated. Vertical integration allows one company to handle a multi-tier system of production and distribution—i.e., a dispensary might grow the cannabis it sells, and also process it into edibles, concentrates, and so on. But why does the WSWA care about that?

Per Marijuana Moment:

The alcohol industry generally operates under a three-tier system in the US, through which separate operators handle production, wholesaling and retail sales. Some have suggested that the alcohol industry wants the cannabis market to adopt its approach so that existing businesses like beer, wind and liquor distributors can profit from legal marijuana as well. But Dawson Hobbs, WSWA senior vice president of government relations, denied as much when the association made its initial announcement earlier this year.

"No, what we’re talking about is just creating a pathway for states to have federal recognition of legalization by enacting appropriate regulation that creates a safe and reliable marketplace," Hobbs said at the time.

The alcohol industry just wants to help, that's all.

          The Stranger Solves a Murder at a Techies's Mansion in Sand Point      Cache   Translate Page      
We cracked the code, saved the day, and wished we had a view like that. by Nathalie Graham
Who killed The Count??
Who killed The Count?? Nathalie Graham

Where: Sand Point
When: Friday, November 30

The Uber couldn't go any further. It dumped The Stranger in the middle of a dark, narrow road. We clutched our coat close and strode cautiously forward, our heels clicking on the wet pavement. The Count was expecting us.

The drive opened up to reveal a mansion. We walked through a curved Hobbit-hole-like archway. The property sat squat on Lake Washington. Someone—we're not saying us—would kill for a view of Kirkland like that.

"They live here?" someone nearby whispered.

"I'm pretty sure that's a hot tub," said another.

We knocked on the big, wood door. It swung open. A man in a tuxedo bowed to us, "Welcome to my home. I'm the Count." He asked us to take off our shoes. Ritzy.

It was a murder mystery party. Everyone was dressed elegantly. One girl, who confused "formal" with "costume" on the invitation, was dressed as Kiki from that Miyazaki movie. The Stranger crafted our own character. We were a divorceé loosely based on Indiana Jones. Write what you know, right? We channeled the animosity of our divorced parents. Method acting.

We gathered in a living room with high ceilings and windows that took up entire walls. There were three floors, from what we could tell. An upper and lower balcony and a dock that could suit at least three boats. Seven men in their twenties shared this place. All of them worked in computer science. We strode past a closet that was left ajar. There was a bed in there.

"Is this set up for the mystery?" we asked.

"Nah," someone responded. "I think that's someone's room. I heard their rent is $500."

"I built everything I own," said the man whose character was a tech worker, "my company, my wealth, my girlfriend." That girlfriend was an AI. She laid down on the ground, eyes closed. She was charging.

During the Count's welcome toast—"He's gonna die," the girl next to me singsonged—the lights shut off, people screamed, and when the power came back he was spread-eagle on the floor.

"Is someone a doctor?" cried the butler.

"I have a Ph.D.!" yelled the college professor in the red turtleneck.

"He's dead. Nobody leaves until we figure out who did this," the butler said firmly. The rest of the characters milled about, some filled up their champagne flutes, others topped off their wine glasses. We set down our questionable mixture of Tito's vodka and Martinelli's sparkling apple cider.

The Stranger didn't realize how much we'd like a murder mystery, but we really liked the murder mystery. We ventured out onto the deck despite the rain in search of clues—"Think Gatsby's green light," the previous one had read. Two men in the sunroom sat drinking. "To moist socks," they cheered and clinked glasses.

Our character's ex-husband (our real-life boyfriend) was, admittedly, better than we were at solving clues. We quizzed characters while he cracked a safe's code. Inside, there was a will.

We inquired about a dog portrait resting against the mantle. "Ah yes, that's Scooby, the Count's late dog," responded the butler.

"To Scooby!" The two men still in the sunroom echoed. "Rest in power!"

We raced into the garage and saw trays of printed QR codes. Wow, we thought, the attention to detail is insane. When we asked one of the hosts about it he looked puzzled "QR codes?" he asked. Then he broke character, "Oh, that's just some shit my roommate does." At the end, after two wills, and a lot of alcohol, the AI was found to be the killer. That seemed about right, the party agreed.

Then we all raised our glasses. "To Jeff Bezos killing us all!"

After the mystery was solved our boyfriend showed us a notification on his phone. George H.W. Bush had kicked the bucket.

"Huh," our boyfriend said. "Poetic."

One of the drunker girls nodded. Then shouted, "Alexa! Play Avicii!"

  •           Seattle Musician Nordra's Post-Apocalyptic LP Pylon II Placed 20th on The Wire Magazine's Year-End Best Albums List      Cache   Translate Page      
    Seattle musician Nordra's Pylon II grabbed the #20 spot on prestigious UK magazine The Wire's top 50 albums list of 2018. by Dave Segal
    The Wire loves Nordra.
    The Wire loves Nordra. Dave Segal

    In its annual Rewind issue (on stands in late December), esteemed British music magazine The Wire ranked Pylon II by Seattle musician Nordra at number 20 in its writers' top 50 albums of 2018 list. (The album was released via Bandcamp in 2016, soon after it was used to score a dance piece choreographed by Coleman Pester at King Street Station. Vashon-based SIGE Records issued Pylon II on vinyl this year.) It's quite an honor for the young multi-instrumentalist/vocalist (real name: Monika Khot), who also plays in the rock groups Zen Mother and Red Ribbon.

    In a Slog post from 2016, I wrote this about Pylon II: "[Nordra's] post-industrial electronic score ratcheted up the tension to near-apocalyptic levels at several points during the dance, and generated passages of uneasy calm at others—proving her a master of suspenseful dynamics and an epicure of extreme textures. Known for her drone-based work with guitar, pocket trumpet, drum machine, and effects pedals, Nordra added synthesizers to her arsenal for Pylon II, and has become an adept acolyte of Heldon's Richard Pinhas, Bernard Szajner, and John Carpenter, and other harnessers of malevolent tones."

    Congratulations, Monika, and respect to SIGE for giving Pylon II a physical release.

              Slog AM: The Alaskan Way Viaduct Is Set to Come Down, Mayor Durkan Hates Electric Scooters      Cache   Translate Page      
    by Michael Bell
    Fuck you and your scooter! -Jenny Durkan, probably
    "Fuck you and your scooter!" -Jenny Durkan, probably Vasyl Dolmatov/Getty Images

    Mukilteo residents don’t fuck around: Neighbors have united for 13 years to fight against the development of 112 houses in Mukilteo, reports KING5. Yesterday morning, they banded together and used their cars to physically block a flatbed carrying a bulldozer. The community’s alleged reason for banding together against the development is that “the land is at risk for landslides and erosion could send polluting sediment into the nearby salmon-bearing Picnic Point Creek.”

    Hooray! They’re all set to take down the precarious Alaskan Way viaduct: Every time I’ve had the unfortunate opportunity to travel along its path—many over the years—I can’t help but visualize the utter chaos that would be if the Big One were to strike at that very moment. Which level of this shanty-way would be worst to be on? I'd wonder. But visualize no more! Kiewit Infrastructure West, the contractor for the demolition of the Viaduct is ready-to-fucking-go. According to the Seattle Times, the $75 million demolition will take 5 ½ months. Listen close for the sound of destruction this February and take solace knowing that piece of junk is being done away with for good.

    Mayor Durkan hates scooters: Doug Trumm at The Urbanist has the scoop on Mayor Jenny Durkan’s disdain for the two-wheel transport vehicles. She says if we put them out in the public that we’re going to “have people use them knowing they’re going to get hurt,” and she doesn’t “think that’s responsible.” Doug points out that in our country “37,000 people die annually in car crashes.” Honestly, the only scooter-related issue that bothers me are the jokers at skateparks on those two-wheeled tragedies. Parents, do your child a favor and buy them a skateboard (and a helmet).

    Woman charged with murder extradited from Japan: The body of Toshio Ota was found in the Columbia River in August of 2012. After a woman named Kyung Hee Dowdle was charged with first-degree murder for the killing, she fled to Japan. Last week she was extradited back to the U.S. and booked into jail on Thursday on a $5 million bail. “According to the charges,” reports the Seattle Times, “Dowdle rented a minivan and paid two men $150 each to help her move and dispose of a large suitcase she said was filled with books.”

    Don’t throw away your N95 masks yet! Wildfires ain’t going anywhere, and in fact, experts say the risk they pose is only getting worse in Western Washington. A varied group of authorities on the subject gathered Monday at a conference called Managing Western Washington Wildfire Risk in a Changing Climate. They see the number of fires increasing on the Western side of our state, where populations aren’t as used to them, and generally less ready to react, so the main concern at the conference was figuring out how to educate the populace on the risks, and what to do in threatening scenarios.

    So pretty... But soooo cold:


    Ever heard of McNeil Island in Pierce County? Neither had we. Alas, Washington State is spending $500,000 on cleaning up 100-year old debris off of the polluted little Puget Sound island. KING5 reports that “the only residents on the six-square-mile island in southern Puget Sound are the 200 sex offenders living in a special state facility.” But the state isn’t cleaning up the island for them, they are cleaning the island to create long stretches of undisturbed shoreline to improve the conditions for aquatic wildlife.

    Hold up: Just one second. Whose grandma makes doughnuts of any variety? And why haven’t I met her yet?! My grandma never made any doughnuts. She did, however, make sausages and potato pancakes!


    Another one bites the dust: Scratch Deli in Capitol Hill is set to close, according to Capitol Hill Blog. Scratch opened on 12th in 2012, and I’m sad to say I never even got a chance to go. They’re slated to close later this month, so if you are a fan, or want to try it, this may be your last few weeks to go.

    Did you know the U.S. had a government owned international news network? Because they do! And NPR says that “President Franklin Roosevelt created the VOA during World War II to broadcast behind enemy lines.” VOA stands for Voice of America, and they claim to be a “free press.” It became a relevant thing to bring up when President Trump recently tweeted that “Something has to be done, including the possibility of the United States starting our own Worldwide Network to show the World the way we really are, GREAT!” Hey, you learn something new every day, it’s just, you kind of hope the President isn’t learning things about the government he is running at the same rate you are.

    What kind of animal is this, you ask? It is my spirit animal, on these cold days. This is absolutely my mood. Too bad, unlike this creature, I got shit to do.


    Tonight's best Seattle entertainment options include: An evening of not-quite R&B, not-quite ambient, not-quite club music with How to Dress Well, a reading of Truman Capote's touching short story "A Christmas Memory" with Brad Craft, and a four-course Vermouth Dinner at Barnacle.

    I think it's funny how many people are complaining about attempts to apply these "new" 20-year-old names to these areas... Are these the same people who complain about designating buildings with "Youngstown" and "Cottage Grove"?Here's some more history for you. Until relatively recently, most people didn't consider "Delridge" a part of "West Seattle" -- with all the requisite racist and classist reasons for thinking so. There's still plenty of people living west of 35th who think this way.

    Have you ever worked at a coffee shop? Every one I have ever worked at has that layout and thus I think the move of the case makes a ton of sense - they will likely sell more pastries since you can decide while waiting in line  vs crossing the line to see, hovering by the register, or not buying anything because you didn't see them. The baristas were already going back and forth to get milk and the like.

    I witnessed the event, as did a few firemen at the station across the street. I first saw the guy leave LA Fitness angrily with what looked like a staff person following him out the door. He then proceeded to walk down the street knocking over A-boards as he went. When he arrived at Chaco Canyon he picked up landscaping rocks and heaved them at the two windows then headed northeast toward the Y. Left all this info with 911 at the time. Surprised they didn’t catch him since other people were calling in as well. I was worried that the human tornado would get on Metro and cause worse mayhem.

    Theatre review by Luanne Brown

    Look no further than your own backyard for that special Christmas date with a loved one or with the whole family. An evening out at a local restaurant, followed by tickets to this entertaining take on a Christmas classic, is the perfect way to celebrate the season.

    The story is pretty much what the title says it is: a twist on O. Henry’s (a.k.a. William Sydney Porter) tale, “The Gift of the Magi”. In this story, the setting is KTPT, a radio station. The time is 1946.

    The setting is a radio station in 1946
    “Twist of the Magi” gives you two stories in one: the tale of what happens to a young married couple in search of the perfect holiday gifts for each other and a behind-the-scenes look at the actors who put on this radio play. 

    The script for the play itself is nicely written by former Phoenix managing director, Debra Rich-Gettleman, who has a flair for combining farce and romance. 

    Shileah Corey makes her directing debut and brings out the best in the story and the cast, most of whom have more than one role. 

    Adding a musical element, especially on such a small stage, can be tricky, but it’s nicely handled by musical director, Michael Corey. The Twisted Sisters, a trio of talented singers are on-stage standouts. Their difficult harmonies are admirably executed, and their performances are done with pizzazz. Each one of them is a shining star in their own way. Kudos to Darian Conn, Mia Perritt, and Joyél Richardson for jobs well done.

    Veteran actor Larry Albert is Rex Radison, the show’s host. His velvet-toned voice is perfect for the job and his stage-presence adds distinction to this role. Plus, there’s a heart-warming twist to his character once the microphone is turned off. 

    The young couple is charmingly played by James Lynch and Kylara Pankow. Seattle-area comedian, James Milton is suitably unctuous, quirky, and charming as his multiple roles require and who wouldn’t want his red loafers.

    Susan Connors, who plays Denise and Mrs. Mandelbread (and did the costume design, stage design, and stage dressing as well) is nothing short of fantastic. The curls in her era-appropriate hairdo amaze as does her able accents and on-stage appeal.

    Melanie Calderwood plays Betsy,
    the sound technician
    Melanie Calderwood always delights and never more so than as Betsey, the sound technician whose incompetence at her job is laugh-out-loud funny. 

    Diane Jamison as Stella/Mrs. Matisse has a small role, but one that she executes with flair as the flask-hitting actress who arrives late on the scene.

    The Stage Manager is played by Susannah Faherty, whose down-to-earth manner is perfect as the one person who holds everything together on-stage and behind the scenes. Kelsey Boulton brings a satisfying contrast to her dual roles as a hairdresser with a heart and the on-stage wife of a lothario.

    Tickets are a bargain at $25 and the play runs Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2:00pm through Sunday, December 23rd. Wine, tea, and cookies are served at affordable prices and can be consumed in the theater. Sell-outs are likely so order your tickets today.

    Update: The ex-employee has been identified as Aaron D. Pearl, age 46. He has been charged and will be arraigned on Wednesday.

    Original story:

    Seattle Police had extra uniformed officers at Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre Sunday evening, while detectives investigated threatening remarks posted on Facebook earlier in the day.

    Shortly after 1:00pm, 5th Avenue Theatre managers called 911 to report the presence of threatening language posted on a former employee’s social media account. Theater staff advised police that the threats created an environment of fear and theater management made the decision to cancel the 1:30pm matinee showing.

    Theater guests were immediately informed of the cancellation.

    The decision to cancel the performance was made by theater management without any input from the Seattle Police Department. Seattle Police officers will remain on site for the evening performance.

    At 5pm Seattle Police detectives arrested the suspect at his home in Shoreline. He is currently in police custody. This remains an active and ongoing investigation.

OTOH, the Tesla battery packs, as well as the ones in the Volt, Spark EV, and Bolt EV, are liquid regulated, meaning both cooled and WARMED. They use an antifreeze liquid coolant to pump heat inward or outward to allow them to be used in a broader range of temperatures. This, of course, is powered by the very same battery and the 12v pony battery to power the computer and accessories in the case of the GM vehicles, so there can be significant range reduction when the temperature regulation is active. I presently own a Chevrolet Cruze Diesel, a Zero SR electric motorcycle, and a used 2015 Chevrolet Spark EV that I had trucked over to NY from Seattle, WA. There are people in Quebec that drive the Spark EV in the winter, and it works. The range really sucks, but it works.

              Comment on Phillies deal Carlos Santana, J.P. Crawford to Seattle in exchange for Jean Segura and two relievers by schmenkman      Cache   Translate Page      
    "...why they ever signed Santana I will never understand," They needed to add a good bat. Hoskins had shown at the end of 2017 that he may be able to handle left field adequately, and there were questions about Williams and Altherr's bat, and Altherr's and Quinn's health. Santana was available, a proven hitter (sub .250 avg but very good on base and 25 HR power) who could mentor the young guys, and also help instill the approach they wanted at the plate. If Hoskins had been able to play a passable left field, it would have made him a more versatile and more valuable player, while adding a good hitter in Santana. That was the gamble from day one. It turned out Hoskins could not play left as well as they hoped, so now they adjusted course. It was worth a try.

    This is the first smart move this front office has made in a long time. Like Hoskins back at first base, why they ever signed Santana I will never understand, but at least they turned him over in a good deal. It would be nice to see a deal that includes Hernandez to move Kingery back to his natural position of second base. Personally I would not mind an opening day infield of Hoskins, Kingery, Segura, Franco. I still feel at Franco's age, and what he showed at the end of last season, can still be an asset. I think a big problem last year was Phillies defense and I believe it had a lot to do with not playing guys in the right places. And also not knowing if when and where they would be playing.

              Headcoach gesteht: Redskins dachten an Kaepernick       Cache   Translate Page      

    Und auch bei diesem Team wurden die Überlegungen nicht in die Tat umgesetzt. 

    In einem Telefoninterview mit Journalisten hat der Headcoach der Washington Redskins, Jay Gruden, zugegeben, dass seine Franchise über eine Verpflichtung von Colin Kaepernick nachgedacht hat. Innerhalb des Teams habe man darüber "diskutiert und gesprochen", ob man Kaepernick zu einem Probetraining einladen sollte, sich dann aber dagegen entschieden.

    Die Entscheidung wäre womöglich anders ausgefallen, wenn die Quarterback-Probleme bei Washington bereits in der ersten Woche der Saison aufgetreten wären. Dann hätte es laut Gruden eine "größere Möglichkeit" gegeben Kaepernick zu verpflichten. 

    Quarterback Nummer drei bei Redskins am Start

    Die Quarterback-Situation bei den Redskins ist desaströs. Im letzten Monat brach sich Starter Alex Smith das Bein, sein Ersatz Colt McCoy musste am vergangenen Spieltag die selbe Verletzung hinnehmen. Mittlerweile agiert der dritte Spielmacher, der als "Mr. Butt Fumble" bekannt gewordene Mark Sanchez, als Starting-Quarterback.

    Die Redskins sind nicht die erste Franchise, die an eine Verpflichtung des 31-Jährigen gedacht, diese Überlegung aber nicht in die Tat umgesetzt hat. So äußerten vor einigen Monaten unter anderem die Seattle Seahawks ähnliche Gedanken.

              Versuchter Mord! Ex-NFL-Star offenbar für acht Jahre in Haft       Cache   Translate Page      

    Laut mehrerer Medien ist Brandon Browner, ehemaliger Cornerback der Seattle Seahawks und Mitglied der legendären Legion of Boom, offenbar wegen versuchten Mordes zu acht Jahren Gefängnis verurteilt worden.

    Dem 34-Jährigen wurde vorgeworfen, am 8. Juli 2018 in das Apartment seiner Ex-Freundin eingebrochen zu sein, diese gewürgt und anschließend in einen Teppich eingewickelt zu haben. Ihre beiden Kinder sollen während der Tat ebenfalls in der Wohnung gewesen sein. Browner soll zudem eine Uhr im Wert von 20.000 Dollar mitgenommen haben.

    Nach einer kurzen Flucht wurde Browner von der Polizei verhaftet und ist seitdem in Untersuchungshaft.

    Bei seiner Anhörung am Dienstag legte er laut der Berichte keinen Widerspruch gegen die Anschuldigungen des versuchten Mordes und mutwillige Kindesgefährdung ein, weshalb ihm weitere Vorwürfe erlassen wurden.

    Browner in der Legion of Boom

    In der NFL erlangte Browner als Mitglied der ursprünglichen Legion of Boom Bekanntheit. In der Saison 2011 war er mit vier Interceptions der viertbeste Cornerback der NFL und wurde in den Pro Bowl 2012 gewählt. 2013 gewann Seattle den Super Bowl. Allerdings fehlte Browner dabei, weil er zuvor wegen Drogenmissbrauchs für unbestimmte Zeit suspendiert worden war.

              Luka Modric wins 2018 Ballon d'Or      Cache   Translate Page      

    Luka Modric has won the 2018 Ballon d'Or, becoming the first player other than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to receive the award since 2007.

    The midfielder, 33, who helped Croatia reach the men's World Cup final in Russia in the summer, is the first Croatian to win the prestigious prize, which is voted for by journalists.

    On a historic evening in Paris, the ceremony had a women's category for the first time since its inception in 1956, with Norway's Ada Hegerberg crowned the inaugural women's Ballon d'Or winner.

    The 23-year-old scored in this year's Champions League final, playing a key role in Lyon winning the tournament for a third successive year.

    But there was controversy during the ceremony, with co-host Martin Solveig widely criticized on social media after asking the striker during the presentation: "Do you know how to twerk?" The player responded by saying "no."

    Solveig later apologized and said he didn't meant to offend anyone. "This was a joke, probably a bad one, and I want to apologize for the one I may have offended. Sorry about that," Solveig said in a tweeted video.

    Kylian Mbappe, who dazzled for France as Les Bleus triumphed in Russia in the summer, won the newly-formed Kopa award for the best young player.

    The 19-year-old finished fourth overall, above Messi in fifth. Ronaldo was second, with France and Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann third and Liverpool and Egypt star Mo Salah sixth.

    'An unbelievable feeling'

    For all of Mbappe's scintillating play for his country and Paris Saint-Germain, it is Real Madrid star Modric who has broken more than a decade of Messi-Ronaldo dominance.

    "It's an unbelievable feeling," said Modric, who helped Real win a third-straight Champions League in May before guiding Croatia to the World Cup final in July, its best ever performance at the tournament.

    "It's a big pleasure to be here among all these players."

    Since Brazilian Kaka was crowned the world's best player in 2007, Messi and Ronaldo have won the Ballon d'Or a record five times each -- no one else has won the award more than three times.

    Modric also won the Best FIFA men's player award earlier this year and becomes only the fourth player to win football's two biggest individual prizes in the same year, following Bobby Charlton (1966), Johan Cruyff (1974) and Paolo Rossi (1982).

    Central to Croatia's rise

    Modric's journey to picking up football's highest individual honor is an improbable one.

    Growing up during the Balkans war, his father joined the Croatian army, while his grandfather was shot by Croatian Serb rebels and his house was burned down, forcing the family to flee to the Adriatic coast.

    The midfielder has been central to his country's recent rise, which now sees Croatia ranked the fourth in FIFA's rankings.

    The Ballon d'Or dates back to 1956. At first only incorporating European players, in 2007 was opened up to include ever player in the world.

    Under the current format, the list of nominees is drawn up by weekly magazine France Football, with journalists from around the world voting on the final winner.

    1. Luka Modric (Real Madrid and Croatia)

              Washington’s top dogs: Gonzaga aiming to keep upperhand in rivalry was Huskies      Cache   Translate Page      

    The renewal of the Gonzaga-Washington men’s basketball rivalry hasn’t exactly renewed the rivalry.

    Gonzaga has posted lopsided wins in the last three matchups, the latter two as part of a four-game set that expires after next year’s clash in Seattle. The other meeting came in the 2015 Battle 4 Atlantis when the Zags thumped the Huskies 80-64 in the Bahamas.

    Prior to the 2015 meeting, Gonzaga won eight of nine games dating back to 1998, seven of those by double figures. So added up, the Zags have won 11 of the last 12 with only one of those victories by single digits.

    The Huskies’ challenge doesn’t get any easier Wednesday against top-ranked Gonzaga (8-0) in the McCarthey Athletic Center. Washington has dropped its last seven to GU in Spokane, dating back to 1944.

    However, the Huskies (6-2) do bring a number of positives into the matchup, including four experienced seniors with a combined 420 career games and talented sophomore wing Jaylen Nowell, the team’s leading scorer at 18 points per game.

    Washington’s defense, which yielded 97 points to Gonzaga last season in Seattle, has given up 68 or less in every game except an 88-66 road loss to then No. 11 Auburn.

    Coach Mike Hopkins has the program moving in the right direction. He was named Pac-12 coach of the year after guiding UW to a 21-13 mark and the NIT in his first season. The former long-time Syracuse assistant coach has implemented the Orange’s extended 2-3 zone and opponents are shooting just 39.8 percent and scoring 66.4 points.

    “That’s a heck of an experienced squad,” said Gonzaga coach Mark Few, who has a 35-18 record against Pac-12 foes. “Mike has just done such a great job of giving them a purpose and identity.”

    Hopkins has beefed up the non-conference schedule. In addition to Auburn and GU, Washington beat Texas A&M 71-67, lost to Minnesota 68-66 and has an upcoming date with No. 15 Virginia Tech.

    The Huskies, who were No. 25 in the preseason AP poll, have been inconsistent. They blasted one-win Eastern Washington but were pushed the final buzzer by San Diego and UC Santa Barbara, a pair of 6-2 teams.

    The Zags had few issues against Washington’s zone last year. Gonzaga shot 51 percent and had 26 second-chance points. The Zags also got loose in transition before UW could set up its defense.

    Washington, which leads the series 29-17, boasts improved rim protection, swatting 7.0 shots per game to rank fourth nationally. The Huskies were 19th nationally last season.

    Gonzaga is 10th in blocks at 6.0 per game. Junior forward Brandon Clarke is third nationally with 31 of GU’s 48 blocks.

    Nowell has bumped his shooting accuracy to 57 percent after shooting 45 percent as a freshman. He’s made 48 percent on 3-pointers, up from 35 a year ago.

    Matisse Thybulle is all over UW’s record book. The reigning Pac-12 defensive player of the year is No. 1 in steals (227), fifth in blocks (124) and he’s 31 points from joining teammates Noah Dickerson and point guard David Crisp in UW’s 1,000-point club.

    Dickerson, an All-Pac-12 selection last year, averages 17.3 points, Crisp 9.1 and Thybulle 6.8, his lowest since his freshman season.


              Two bye weeks, six road games on the docket for Washington State football in 2019      Cache   Translate Page      

    PULLMAN – The college football season will span across 14 weeks next year, meaning Washington State and each of its 11 Pac-12 Conference peers will have two bye weeks rather than one in 2019.

    The Cougars are preparing for their fourth consecutive bowl game under Mike Leach – the Dec. 28 Alamo Bowl against Iowa State – but they got a glimpse of next season when the Pac-12 announced its full 2019 schedule Tuesday morning.

    The WSU slate is highlighted by the two bye weeks, which fall on Oct. 5 and Nov. 2, a pair of Friday games and six road games for the first time since 2015.

    The Cougars will travel to Houston’s NRG Stadium to play the University of Houston in an intriguing nonconference matchup on Friday, Sept. 13, as part of the AdvoCare Texas Kickoff. They’ll also play a traditional Apple Cup date, on Black Friday (Nov. 29 in Seattle), as they try to snap a six-game losing skid against the University of Washington.

    WSU, which had won 13 straight home games at Martin Stadium before the 2018 finale versus the Huskies, will open 2019 on the Palouse against New Mexico State on Aug. 31. The Cougars will then welcome in a Big Sky team to Martin Stadium for the 10th consecutive season when they host Northern Colorado on Sept. 7.

    After missing out on a chance to play UCLA in Chip Kelly’s first year, the former Oregon coach will take the Bruins to Pullman on Sept. 21.

    The Cougars will go nearly a month before playing another game at Martin Stadium. They travel to Salt Lake City to play reigning Pac-12 South champion Utah on Sept. 28 before the Oct. 5 bye. WSU follows with a trip to Tempe to face Arizona State and first-year coach Herm Edwards on Oct. 12, before returning home to play Colorado on Oct. 19.

    After that, it’ll be another long stretch without football at Martin Stadium for WSU fans. The Cougars will gun for their fifth straight win over Pac-12 North rival Oregon on Oct. 26 in Eugene before taking their second bye week on Nov. 2. Out of the bye week, they’ll visit Cal on Nov. 9 and attempt to break a two-game losing streak in Berkeley.

    A two-week home stretch against the Pac-12 North begins with a Nov. 16 matchup with Stanford and continues with a Nov. 23 clash against Oregon State. The Cardinal haven’t defeated the Cougars in their last three tries and the Beavers haven’t in their last five.

    The regular season closes, as always, with the annual rivalry game against the Huskies. The 112th Apple Cup will be played at Husky Stadium. If it’s any consolation for WSU, for the first time in five years, the Cougars won’t have to deal with the headache of containing running back Myles Gaskin and quarterback Jake Browning, who formed the most productive backfield in UW history.

    The Cougars had opportunities to play for the Pac-12 title the last three years, but if they can get over the hump in 2019, the conference championship game will be held on Dec. 6 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.


              Grip on Sports: The M's that were will not be the M's of next year      Cache   Translate Page      

    A GRIP ON SPORTS • Nothing is final until it’s final. Didn’t Yogi Berra say that? Well, he should have. I do know one thing. If Yogi had been a Mariner this season, Jerry Dipoto would have traded him and his malapropisms to the Nationals or someone. And thrown in money to help cover his contract. Read on.

    ••••••••••

    • If you are a Mariner fan, you might want to pull out a legal pad and start making notes. The roster the franchise has today looks nothing like the one it had on opening day last season. And probably doesn’t resemble the one it will have on opening day next year.

    The Robinson Cano Epoch is over. So is the Jean Segura Era. And the eras of Mike Zunino, Edwin Diaz and almost any other recognizable player you can name.

    Dipoto blew it all up. To quote an old TV show, he blew it up real good.

    James Paxton? Gone. James Pazos? Gone. Juan Nicasio? Gone.

    It’s Dec. 4, the Winter Meetings aren’t even here yet and Dipoto has shed most of the M’s biggest contracts, most-veteran players and even a couple of youngish, under-control guys. In return he’s picked up a few overpaid vets – and a bunch of prospects, a couple of which cause some baseball people to drool uncontrollably. In other words, Dipoto is rebuilding the roster, the farm system and the fans’ expectations.

    Will any of those things bounce back? Not this season. It’s going to be a get-folks-experience year.

    Oh sure, Kyle Seager will still man third base. We think. It seems, considering how he’s fallen off the planet the past two year, it would be hard to get anyone to take his contract. So he's the starting third baseman.

    Dee Gordon will be at second. Mitch Haniger should be in right field, though he’s a tradeable asset and Dipoto seems to be like a guy in Vegas on a hot streak right now. He is in such a zone he may throw Haniger into a trade without even knowing it.

    If Haniger survives, we know he’ll be backing up Marco Gonzales, Mike Leake and Wade LeBlanc as they make starts. Maybe even Felix Hernandez, the franchise’s senior member, will bounce back. There is no chance he will be traded, but the other three guys could be.

    You just never know with Jerry and this franchise-changing spree. Stay tuned. There is probably more to come.

    Gonzaga: The No. 1 team in the country strengthened its hold on the top spot in this week’s Associated Press basketball poll. Jim Meehan has all the numbers. … Josh Perkins is this week’s WCC Player of the Week. … So is Chandler Smith. Jim Allen has that news within a second look at the Bulldogs’ win over Stanford, which propelled the women into the Associated Press Top 25. … The men have a rivalry game coming up this week. Well, sort of. Washington has been so inept in the series its not much of a rivalry. … Around the WCC, despite some visible votes of confidence recently, BYU’s Dave Rose may need to win some games to stay in his position.

    WSU: No, Gardner Minshew is not headed to New York as a Heisman finalist. He didn’t make the cut for the final three, this year’s number of invitees. But he did win the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, an award for the best upperclassmen quarterback. Theo Lawson has stories on both. … The Pac-12 announced its all-academic teams and the Cougars were well represented. Theo runs down those selections. … Theo also explains his AP basketball poll picks. He should. UCLA? C’mon man. (Actually, I agree with his picks but I had to give him a hard time about at least one of them.) … Finally, Theo spoke with Larry Weir about a lot of subjects for the latest Press Box pod.

    Elsewhere in the Pac-12, we start with football, a sport in which the conference’s reputation is in tatters, so to speak. It cost WSU and it showed in the attendance and ratings in the title game. … It also showed in how the public reacted to Larry Scott. … The conference announces its awards today. Gardner Minshew seems like a lock as offensive player of the year, but will Kyle Whittingham outpoint Mike Leach as coach of the year? … Colorado is still looking for a coach. … Arizona State will play its bowl game without its best player. … Arizona didn’t make a bowl. That is no surprise. … Ohio State is announcing today former Utah coach Urban Meyer is retiring (again). … Utah faces a familiar-looking foe in the Holiday Bowl. … In basketball, California is helping out the other Bay Area colleges by playing, and in most cases, losing to them.

    Seahawks: The Hawks’ playoff chances have improved, but they need to keep winning of course. Yes, there are games with Arizona and the 49ers, but this week’s home battle with Minnesota is important as well, what with the Vikings also vying for a wild-card spot. … The Hawks will be without D.J. Fluker, but get Mychal Kendricks back. … A lot went right against the 49ers.

    Mariners: The roster has undergone such a makeover, if I were a free agent, I wouldn’t sign unless I got a percentage of the program sales for the first homestand next season.

    Ah, yes. Exactly what the American League needed: Another team that isn’t going to be competitive. It’s a shame to see the Mariners hitting the self-destruct button. Seattle’s fire sale has sent Edwin Diaz and Robinson Cano to the Mets, James Paxton to the Yankees, Alex Colome to the White Sox, Mike Zunino to the Rays, and now, Jean Segura to the Phillies. Talk about a total teardown. In a little over a month, they’ve gone from an 89-win team to one that looks like the Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers. On the one hand, I get why so many teams are trying this approach. On the other, it’s hard not to cynically note that a lot of the people who shout about the glories of this sort of thing follow teams that don’t have to do it, and that, by cutting the number of competitive teams, this helps certain high-spending teams that MLB might want to have win the World Series more often than, say, the Royals.

              Two Enemies Became Friends and Twitter Exploded in Anger      Cache   Translate Page      
    Eve Peyser came out as friends with Bari Weiss and soon found herself canceled. by Katie Herzog

    Bari Weiss and Eve Peyser had good reason to be wary of each other.

    Weiss, an opinion writer at the New York Times, is a moderate liberal with a number of opinions that might seem anodyne in Des Moines but are radical compared to much of the left-leaning media. Perhaps her first major splash at the Times, for instance, was to declare that Aziz Ansari was guilty… of not being a mind-reader. That piece, about the now infamous accusations made against Ansari on Babe.net, turned Weiss into somewhat of a household name—at least in households with subscriptions to the New York Times and frequent dinner conversations about dating in the #MeToo era.

    Some people love Weiss’s work, more seem to hate it, and today, every piece she writes or tweet she sends out is met with a flurry of anger. More often than not, the criticism comes from other people working in media who are utterly convinced, generally without having met her, that Bari Weiss is Literally Hitler. (Full disclosure: Weiss and I have met, and if she had a Hitler mustache, I didn’t notice.)

    Eve Peyser was one of Bari Weiss’s critics. A former writer for Gawker and current writer for Vice, Peyser was, until not that long ago, the kind of Twitter bully who treated dragging people like a fun little blood sport. Gradually, she came to see how destructive this hobby can be. “The vicious are rewarded with likes and retweets,” she wrote earlier this year in an essay about her own toxic use of Twitter, “and those who are deemed problematic or otherwise unfit become the victims of the volatile and ruthless mob.” Peyser was part of the mob and Weiss was the mob’s favorite target.

    Still, the two have much in common. They are both Jewish women and writers living in New York. They are roughly the same age, and they even sort of look alike. And while there are some deviations in their politics, they are hardly on opposite sides of the political chasm. Weiss was a Clinton supporter, Peyser preferred Sanders. Weiss is a supporter of Israel, while Peyser is more into #FreePalestine. But still, despite the fact that they generally agree on the big picture (no one here is voting for Trump or thinks climate change is a hoax), thanks to the distorting effects of both politics and social media, both of which encourage us to group others into either Good or Evil, the two saw each other as something like enemies.

    And then they actually met. They detailed how they went from enemies to friends Monday in a joint piece published in the New York Times, and, according to their origin story, they met at a conference the day after Weiss was confronted in a bar by two people whose intent was to publicly humiliate her. When Peyser, after hearing about this confrontation, approached Weiss and suggested that they hang out, Weiss, not totally sure she wasn’t being set up, suggested they go swimming. It’s “quite hard to wear a wire in a bathing suit,” Weiss recalls thinking.

    After spending time with each other face-to-face rather than through tweets and avatars, the two started to see that they’d both been wrong about the other: Weiss, despite what Peyser had read on Twitter, was not actually a 20th-century dictator who killed millions of people. And Peyser, Weiss realized, was not actually the caricature of a Gawker bully and a Bernie bro put together. Their story of coming together is a nice, uplifting piece about how social media platforms make enemies out of people who should be friends and how we could all stand to be just a little more tolerant. As Peyser wrote, if we dismiss everyone we disagree with, where does that leave us?

    And then Twitter got a hold of the article and twisted a story about finding common ground into something terrible and devious. That two people can disagree on some things and yet manage to be friends was treated as further evidence that both Weiss and Peyser deserve to be shipped off to the closest re-education center. Why? Because the fact that they aren’t diametrically opposed—the fact that they refused to continue to hate each other—was seen as just two privileged white ladies uniting over the one thing they really had in common: white privilege. As Paste Magazine’s Jason Rhode declared, “Bari Weiss and Eve Peyser Cannot See Past Their Own Privilege.”

    Rhode’s reading is ungenerous, to say the least. He calls Weiss “a drywall-dull reactionary and writer of stupefyingly bad takes.” He also accuses her, falsely, of being a conservative, and neglects that the women address the issue of privilege in their piece. Peyser says, “Of course, we have to acknowledge that we are privileged enough to be able to have this sort of discourse, to be friends despite our differing beliefs. Not everyone has that option.” And Weiss responds: “That’s right. I’m certainly not going to invite the conspiracy theorist who called my rabbi asking about me out for coffee. Likewise, a black student at the University of North Carolina probably wouldn’t feel safe meeting with a Richard Spencer foot soldier. And so on.”

    This was not enough, however, to placate the haters and critics. Search Twitter for either Peyser’s or Weiss’s name, and you’ll get plenty of this:


    And this…


    And this…


    There’s more, each tweet proving the point of the article. “When we became friends, I worried I’d get ‘canceled’ if Twitter found out,” Peyser says in the piece. She was certainly right about that.

    Now, it’s possible that all the people dragging Weiss and now Peyser really do think that they are terrible people and shit-talking them on a social media platform is some kind of good samaritan duty. But I suspect there’s something else going on. I think the response to this piece isn’t about Weiss or Peyser at all; it’s about the people doing the responding. They are signaling to their own friends and followers that they are a part of the in-group. They are bonding over a shared hatred of two people that few of them have ever actually met. As journalist Mark Heid wrote recently on Medium, a handful of studies now show that “sharing negative attitudes with someone — and, in particular, sharing negative opinions about other people — seems to be among the quickest and most effective ways for two strangers to form a bond. If you want to cozy up to someone, there may be no better way to do it than to gossip about the people you both hate.”

    This glitch of human psychology is, for Eve Peyser, Bari Weiss, and everyone who finds themselves being pummeled by the mob, truly unfortunate. The mob might be virtual, but the weight of it still crushes. So perhaps the new friends can take solace in this: Not only did they breach their own political divide, in the process, they gave everyone else something to bond over.

              The Planned Replica of Trump's Wall by WSU College Republicans Shows That the Stupidity of the Idea Is the Idea      Cache   Translate Page      
    by Charles Mudede

    Washington State University College Republicans want to build "an 8-foot mockup of a border wall on the Pullman campus" for some kind of demonstration. Why is this at all interesting or post-worthy? Because it reveals that the wall (or that "fucken" wall) is not about keeping brown people out of the US. The fact is everyone, from the right to the left, knows the whole idea of the wall is nothing but stupid, and if realized, would be a complete waste of time and resources. So, no mystery here. Only a few US citizens really believe they will sleep better if the fucken wall is funded and erected.

    But then we must ask ourselves: Why is there so much talk about this wall? The College Republican students' planned replica provides an answer just like that. It's not beloved by the right or Trump's followers because it makes any sense. It is beloved precisely because it is one of the stupidest ideas out there. And I say this not in mockery of the students, but with a sense of understanding. They know very well that stupidity is the only political tool their party can (and must) use. Again, do not consider this an insult. It is a fact, and a crippling one.

    The GOP of our times, which is a bit different from those of, say, the recently dead G H.W. Bush (and with his death, precisely what was buried at the Presidential Library and Museum in Texas), has completely given up the idea that it represents anything that makes any sense. The economics of tax cuts and trickle down (or voodoo economics, as Bush once called it) is bogus, weak guns laws are irrational, promoting the deregulation of the financial sector is just plain nuts (the crash of 2008 made that abundantly clear to the suburbs—the political consequences of this elucidation were vividly expressed in the 2018 midterm elections). Even the arguments against universal health care make no deep or practical economic sense.

    So, if little to nothing in your entire political program adds up, and there is daily growing evidence that it does more economic and social damage than good, what is left but to support Trump's wall (and all the other nonsense that pops in his head or out of his mouth)? This is one of the many important points made in a new book, Like a Thief in Broad Daylight, by the leading (or most-popular) philosopher of our times, Slavoj Žižek. He suggests in his book's second chapter that it's wrong to believe that US Christian fundamentalists support Trump—with his porn stars, pee tape, and pussy grabbing—simply because of a long-term plan to overturn Roe v. Wade. What fundamentalists understand at a deep level is that the abortion argument has not had legs to stand on for a very long time. And so, it's not a matter of arguing logically or democratically with, say, Lindy West—a public figure who would demolish you and your points very easily. No. It is simply effective to confront her and other supporters of the #shoutyourabortion movement with the utter nonsense of a pussy grabber. This is the Lord's new work.

    So what is left for the right? Embracing, not arguments that have a chance, but those that do not. This kills any illusion of a debate. There is only one side arguing. In the past, there used to be two, with the second maintaining a semblance of an argument. A species of that commitment to semblance was buried in Texas this week. It's now almost extinct. And it is here we must appreciate the political significance of Trump's stupidity. It's not a plan. It's an act of survival.

    The wall, like raking forests to solve the climate crisis, is celebrated by the right because, unlike defending, say, the deregulation of banks (an argument that claims to have intellectual respectability, as it is supported by thousands of economics professors and commentators), it doesn't have even a semblance of intelligence. It's a nonstarter. The wall's function is not to end or stem an immigration crisis, but, as the Republican students of WSU put it, to “own the libs mercilessly.”

    And how do you own liberals? Not with anything that even has a hint of respectability or plausibility. That's a recipe for disaster. You do it by confronting leftist rationality (or even just plain common sense) with ideas and programs and plans that make no sense at all, that cannot even be debated, that are bluntly, loudly stupid. This is how you "own" the opposition.

    Man with intercourse troubles gets advice from a urologist. by Dan Savage

    I'm a 59-year-old man in good health. For basically my whole adult life, I've had this problem during intercourse with a woman of (1) being very quick to come and (2) having a too intense "cringey" sensation when I come. This has led to often going soft at the prospect of intercourse. This too-intense feeling makes me stop moving when I come, which is not satisfying at all. It doesn't happen with hand jobs or oral sex—they feel fine and good. Is this a known phenomenon? And, most importantly, what can I do to get to a point where I can enjoy intercourse? This seriously messes up my enjoyment of sex and my confidence with women. One time, and only one time (out of many with a particular girlfriend), I had intercourse and it felt fine when I came, still thrusting, so I know it's possible. I have been practicing with a Fleshlight, but it's still painfully "cringey" when I come. It is not fun and rather depressing.

    He Always Really Dreads Penetration And Regrets This

    I shared your letter with Dr. Ashley Winter, a urologist in private practice in Portland, Oregon, and the cohost of The Full Release, a sex, health, and relationship podcast. Dr. Winter wanted to note that her comments are a general discussion of a medical topic and NOT individual medical advice. She wanted me to emphasize this point—which she also emphasizes at the top of her terrific podcast—because Dr. Winter is a responsible doctor and not a card-carrying member of the Amalgamated Advice Columnists of America. (Membership in the AACA entitles advice columnists to say pretty much whatever they want.)

    "There are three issues at play here," said Dr. Winter. "First, the pain or 'cringey' sensation only associated with vaginal and Fleshlight penetration. Second, being too quick to come. And third, erectile dysfunction. HARDPART insightfully suggests his ED may be related to his performance anxiety as well as anticipated pain, and I would agree with this. I would add that his quick ejaculation is most likely also caused by a mix of ED and pain—the body adapts to pain and erection loss by letting the swimmers off the hook early."

    But why do you experience this pain only during penetrative sex? What is it about PIV (penis in vagina) or PIF (penis in Fleshlight) that causes those painfully cringey feelings?

    "If he thrusts more during these activities than he does during oral or hand stimulation, I would expect that either pelvic floor muscle dysfunction or a nerve issue related to the lower spine could be causing the flairs," said Dr. Winter. "If he were my patient, I would want to know if he has less pain when his partner is on top, which would mean his pelvis is moving less. Also, does he have chronic low back pain? Bowel or bladder issues?"

    Dr. Winter and I continued to generally discuss the medical topics raised by your question, HARDPART, and we generally discussed—this is not, again, individual medical advice, but a general discussion—two things someone with your particular issue might want to think about doing. First, a guy with your problem could try taking Viagra—or a related drug—while also using a penis numbing spray. And a guy with your problem should also have his pelvic floor checked out. A urologist can help a guy with a problem like yours determine if there's something wrong with the complex web of muscles and nerves that crowd together around your junk and, if it is a pelvic floor issue, refer him to a pelvic floor physical therapist.

    Finally, a suggestion from me, the person with the AACA card: A guy with a problem like yours—a guy whose dick works a certain way and has worked that way for decades—could save himself the hassle of physical therapy and the side effects of Viagra by accepting his dick and the way his dick works. There are women out there who prefer oral and outercourse to PIV, HARDPART, and you could bed those women with confidence.

    Follow Dr. Ashley Winter on Twitter @AshleyGWinter, and check out The Full Release podcast, which she cohosts with comedian Mo Mandel, at thefullreleasepod.com.


    I'm a mostly straight guy in my 40s and I'm married to a woman. I don't know if it's a midlife crisis or what, but I've decided that I want to get fucked in the ass once in my life. I will be visiting Hamburg soon, and it's my understanding that sex work is legal in Germany. I want your help sorting out the legal, ethical, and practical issues.

    1. Legal issue. Paying for sex in Germany is legal, right? But even if sex work is legal, that doesn't mean every sex worker is doing it voluntarily. I prefer people closer to my own age, and I imagine a 40-year-old sex worker is less likely to be exploited, right? What else can I do to ensure that I'm not with a trafficked individual

    2. Ethical issue After many years and many near-divorce situations, my wife and I have adopted a more tolerant (or more apathetic) posture toward each other. She has on several occasions told me that she doesn't care who I fuck. While I haven't acted on it, she has said it often enough that I believe her. We've talked about an open relationship, but she wasn't enthusiastic. My best guess is that she doesn't want to know if I do anything "gay," while also not wanting me to form any emotional attachments. Do I ask her again if she really doesn't care who I fuck? Or do her previous statements suffice?

    3. Practical issues. Is a condom enough protection? How do I avoid things like herpes and crabs? Other than emptying ye olde bowels, what other steps should I take before asking a male German escort to fuck me in the ass? And how do I ask? Google Translate suggests "Fick mich in den Arsch," which is an unappealing thing to say. Maybe there's something sexier?

    Legal, Ethical, And Practical

    1. Sex work is, indeed, legal in Germany. You can minimize your chances of hiring someone who may not be doing sex work of their own free will by avoiding agencies and finding yourself an independent escort. But seeing as how you're looking to hire a male in his 40s, LEAP, your odds of hiring someone doing sex work under duress are very, very low.

    2. The wife who lovingly and apathetically tolerates your soon-to-be-fucked ass has already told you—and told you more than once—that she doesn't care who you fuck. She also doesn't want to know if you fuck someone else. Asking if she meant it immediately before flying off to Hamburg—double-checking to make sure she really doesn't care who you fuck—would basically mean telling her you know you're going to fuck someone else in Hamburg (and fuck them all "gay" and shit), and she's already told you she doesn't want to know. Taking her at her word, i.e., allowing her previous statements to suffice, is the right thing to do.

    3. A condom offers highly effective protection from HIV, gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydia. For added protection, LEAP, ask your doctor about getting on PrEP, aka Truvada, before your trip. It's a daily pill that, once built up to full strength (roughly a week), provides highly effective protection against HIV infection. While condoms do provide some protection against herpes, neither condoms nor PrEP will save you from crabs. To make sure your one-and-only ass fucking goes well, empty ye olde bowels and then douche ye olde rectum. Since most German escorts, like most German everybodies, speak English, LEAP, there is no need for an English-to-German dictionary. Just say, "Fuck my ass, please."

              Free Will Astrology      Cache   Translate Page      
    December 5–11 by Rob Brezsny

    ARIES (March 21–April 19): When I write a horoscope for you, I focus on one or two questions because I don't have room to cover every single aspect of your life. The theme I've chosen this time may seem a bit impractical, but if you take it to heart, I guarantee you it will have practical benefits. It comes from Italian author Umberto Eco. He wrote, "Perhaps the mission of those who love humanity is to make people laugh at the truth, to make truth laugh, because the only truth lies in learning to free ourselves from insane passion for the truth." I swear to you, Aries, that if you laugh at the truth and make the truth laugh in the coming days, you will be guided to do all the right and necessary things.

    TAURUS (April 20–May 20): You have a cosmic mandate and poetic license to stir up far more erotic fantasies than usual. It will be healthy for you to unleash many new thoughts about sexual experiments that would be fun to try and novel feelings you'd like to explore and people whose naked flesh you'd be interested to experience sliding and gliding against yours. But please note that the cosmic mandate and poetic license do not necessarily extend to you acting out your fantasies. The important thing is to let your imagination run wild. That will catalyze a psychic healing you didn't even realize you needed.

    GEMINI (May 21–June 20): In my continuing efforts to help you want what you need and need what you want, I've collected four wise quotes that address your looming opportunities. (1) "What are you willing to give up in order to become who you really need to be?" —Elizabeth Gilbert. (2) "Leave the door open for the unknown, the door into the dark. That's where the most important things come from" —Rebecca Solnit. (3) "You enter the extraordinary by way of the ordinary" Frederick Buechner. (4) "Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you" Nathaniel Hawthorne.

    CANCER (June 21–July 22): I've called on author Robert Heinlein to provide your horoscope. According to my astrological analysis, his insights are exactly what you need to focus on right now. "Do not confuse 'duty' with what other people expect of you," he wrote. "They are utterly different. Duty is a debt you owe to yourself to fulfill obligations you have assumed voluntarily. Paying that debt can entail anything from years of patient work to instant willingness to die. Difficult it may be, but the reward is self-respect. But there is no reward at all for doing what other people expect of you, and to do so is not merely difficult, but impossible."

    LEO (July 23–Aug 22): What does "beauty" mean to you? What sights, sounds, images, qualities, thoughts, and behavior do you regard as beautiful? Whatever your answers might be to those questions right now, I suggest you expand and deepen your definitions in the coming weeks. You're at a perfect pivot point to invite more gorgeous, lyrical grace into your life; to seek out more elegance and charm and artistry; to cultivate more alluring, delightful magic.

    VIRGO (Aug 23–Sept 22): You know the expiration dates that appear on the labels of the prescription drugs you buy? They don't mean that the drugs lose their potency after that date. In fact, most drugs are still quite effective for at least another 10 years. Let's use this fact as a metaphor for a certain resource or influence in your life that you fear is used up or defunct. I'm guessing it still has a lot to offer you, although you will have to shift your thinking in order to make its reserves fully available.

    LIBRA (Sept 23–Oct 22): Libran rapper Eminem is renowned for his verbal skill. It may be best exemplified in his song "Rap God," in which he delivers 1,560 words in six minutes and four seconds, or 4.28 words per second. In one stretch, he crams in 97 words in 15 seconds, achieving a pace of 6.5 words per second. I suspect that in the coming weeks, you will also be unusually adept at using words, although your forte will be potent profundity rather than sheer speed. I encourage you to prepare by making a list of the situations where your enhanced powers of persuasion will be most useful.

    SCORPIO (Oct 23–Nov 21): In May of 1883, the newly built Brooklyn Bridge opened for traffic. Spanning the East River to link Manhattan and Brooklyn, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. But almost immediately, people spread rumors that it was unstable. There was a growing fear that it might even crumble and fall. That's when charismatic showman P.T. Barnum stepped in. He arranged to march 21 elephants across the bridge. There was no collapse, and so the rumors quickly died. I regard the coming weeks as a time when you should take inspiration from Barnum. Provide proof that will dispel gossipy doubt. Drive away superstitious fear with dramatic gestures. Demonstrate how strong and viable your improvements really are.

    SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22–Dec 21): Robert Louis Stevenson published his gothic novel The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in 1886. It was a best seller and quickly got turned into a theatrical production. In the ensuing 132 years, there have been well over a hundred further adaptations of the story into film and stage productions. Here's the funny thing about this influential work: Stevenson wrote it fast. It took him three feverish days to get the gist of it and just another six weeks to revise. Some biographers say he was high on drugs during the initial burst, perhaps cocaine. I suspect you could also produce some robust and interesting creation in the coming weeks, Sagittarius—and you won't even need cocaine to fuel you.

    CAPRICORN (Dec 22–Jan 19): A blogger on Tumblr named Ffsshh composed a set of guidelines that I think will be apt and useful for you to draw on in the coming weeks. Please study these suggestions and adapt them for your healing process. "Draw stick figures. Sing off-key. Write bad poems. Sew ugly clothes. Run slowly. Flirt clumsily. Play video games on 'easy.' OK? You do not need to be good at something to enjoy it. Sometimes talent is overrated. Do things you like doing just because you like doing them. It's OK to suck."

    AQUARIUS (Jan 20–Feb 18): Aquarian athlete Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player who ever lived. He was also the first to become a billionaire. But when he was growing up, he didn't foresee the glory that awaited him. For example, in high school he took a home economics class to acquire cooking abilities. Why? He imagined that as an adult, he might have to prepare all of his own meals. His ears were so huge and ungainly, he reasoned, that no woman would want to be his wife. So the bad news was that he suffered from a delusion. The good news was that because of his delusion, he learned a useful skill. I foresee a similar progression for you, Aquarius. Something you did that was motivated by misguided or irrelevant ideas may yield positive results.

    PISCES (Feb 19–March 20): The Bible does not say that Mary Magdalene was a prostitute or even a "sinner." There's no mention of her sexual proclivities at all. Delusional ideas about her arose in the Middle Ages, instigated by priests who confused her with other women in the Bible. The truth is that the Bible names her as a key ally to Christ and the crucial witness to his resurrection. Fortunately, a number of scholars and church leaders have in recent years been working to correct her reputation. I invite you to be motivated and inspired by this transformation as you take steps to adjust and polish your own image during the coming weeks. It's time to get your public and private selves into closer alignment.

    Homework: Imagine that one of your heroes comes to you and says, "Teach me the most important things you know." What do you say? Testify at freewillastrology.com.

              America Likes to Look at Its Dead Presidents      Cache   Translate Page      
    by Ned Lannamann

    Former president George H.W. Bush's body is currently lying in state at the Capitol Rotunda in Washington, DC. It will stay there until his state funeral at the National Cathedral tomorrow, Wednesday, December 5—a day that the Post Office and the stock markets are taking off in memoriam. Among the many visitors to the Rotunda so far are Donald and Melania Trump, whose visit lasted two entire minutes, and Bush's service dog, Sully, who probably isn’t really grieving in the way the internet’s imagining him to be but is nevertheless a very good boy, isn’t he. Yes he is. Yes he is.

    Bush Sr. is the 12th president to lie in state in the Capitol building, Abraham Lincoln being the first. (Nixon, famously, did not lie in state—he and Truman are the only presidents since FDR to not do so.) Following the funeral, Bush's body will be transported by train back to Houston, where a special locomotive will then take him to College Station, Texas, the site of his presidential library. It’s the first presidential funeral train since Eisenhower’s in 1969; Robert Kennedy also was transported by train the year prior. (Again, Lincoln was the pioneer in this regard as well; his presidential funeral train stopped through 180 different cities in 1865.)

    Our intermittent but longstanding tradition of allowing people to come within physical proximity to the dead bodies of government officials is a strange one. Funereal rites are usually thought of as religious in nature, while the Capitol is not only a government building, but a functioning workplace as well. Although Bush’s casket isn't open—that tradition seems to be reserved for popes—America seems to hold on to a ghoulish, old-world fascination with being in the same room as a corpse. Maybe it’s because we rarely get the chance to collectively gawp at our dead, even those concealed inside of boxes. Our best-loved celebrities are rarely given public funerals: Aretha Franklin and Muhammad Ali are among the very few in recent memory to have had a cultural impact. And the funeral of John McCain earlier this year seemed more like an opportunity for politicians and DC insiders to demonstrate some semblance of humanity rather than an outpouring of deeply felt grief.

    It’s a peculiar thing we do, shuffling into a public place to see the dead body of a public figure (or, at least, the outside of their coffin). Were I in DC and anywhere near the Capitol, I doubt I’d make the effort to pay in-person respects to George H.W. Bush’s remains, which raises two questions: Whose body would I bother to see, and how far would I go to see it? My initial knee-jerk answer was that I’d travel up to five miles to see Barack Obama’s body, but I’ve thought about it a little more and I don’t know if I would even do that. I would absolutely make an effort to visit his final resting place and his library, but to view his body in repose? No, I don’t think I’d want to.

    Nevertheless, we’re morbid creatures by nature, and perhaps some vestigial animal part of us needs to witness a dead body in order to accept the abstract idea that its life has ended. It also allows us to close the circuit on what has been until now an ongoing narrative (humans intensely craves conclusions, almost as much as we crave giving cuddly dog rubs to very good boys). George H.W. Bush’s state funeral will be televised tomorrow, and this new, strange type of death rite—one enabled by modern-day technology—actually makes more sense to me than all of this corpse-rubbernecking at the rotunda. Ceremonial mourning aside, a televised memorial provides the chance for the country to collectively plug into a shared American experience, even if one precipitated by death. And that kind of shared experience is becoming a rarer and rarer thing these days.

              PSU Student Found Near Amtrak Tracks Says He Wasn't Attempting Suicide      Cache   Translate Page      
    by Alex Zielinski
    Aaron Salazar
    Aaron Salazar GoFundMe

    Originally reported by The Stranger's sister paper down south, The Portland Mercury.

    In May, 22-year-old Portland State University student Aaron Salazar was found unconscious alongside Amtrak rail tracks near Truckee, California. While doctors said Salazar's injuries were consistent with someone who was brutally beaten, Amtrak officials were quick to call it a suicide attempt.

    Now, six months after the incident, Salazar is setting the record straight.

    “I'd never, ever try to kill myself," Salazar said in a video posted on a Facebook page managed by his family.

    It's the first public statement Salazar has made since the incident, which left him with a damaged brain stem, a broken pelvis, burns on his crotch and thighs, and a badly beaten face. He was unable to speak for months.

    Salazar was en route to Portland from Colorado when railroad workers discovered his body. His injuries immediately raised questions about whether Salazar, who is gay, had been the victim of a hate crime.

    But Amtrak Chief of Police Neil Trugman told reporters that, based on earlier conversations Salazar had reportedly had with fellow train passengers, "all indications right now appear that it was an attempted suicide.” Trugman suggested that Salazar threw himself from the Amtrak train.

    In the new video, Salazar is clear: "I did not not jump off the train."

    Salazar did not offer any other details or memories about the incident.

    The FBI is not as quick as Amtrak to dismiss Salazar's case. In September, an FBI agent collected Salazar's DNA to run it against DNA found on his clothing after the incident, according to Honolulu Civil Beat (Salazar grew up in Oahu).

              Democrats and Republicans in Olympia Failed Candace Faber      Cache   Translate Page      
    Faber is now calling for "a deeper investigation into all the ways this system fails survivors." by Rich Smith
    Today the State Senate announced that it is dropping its investigation of outgoing State Senator Joe Fain.
    Today the State Senate announced that it is dropping its investigation of outgoing State Senator Joe Fain. YINYANG / GETTY

    Tuesday afternoon, Democrats in the Senate suspended the investigation into Candace Faber's rape allegation against Sen. Joe Fain. Faber made the accusation during the Kavanaugh hearings in late September, saying that Fain raped her in a hotel room in Washington D.C. after her graduation from a master's program at Georgetown University. Fain denied the allegation and told KING 5 his "memory of the events do not coincide with her allegations."

    As the Seattle Times, who first reported this story, points out, everybody—"Fain, Faber, lawmakers from both parties and Gov. Jay Inslee"—called for an investigation. With all this bipartisan agreement, with all this civil cooperation, why don't we have an investigation? Well, it's a classic combo of inaction from Democrats and typical hypocritical bullshit from the Republicans.

    Instead of immediately calling for an emergency committee meeting to address the issue, Senate Democrats sat on their hands for a month after Faber first accused Fain of raping her. Granted, the legislature clearly had no process in place to handle a claim of this nature, but the Democrats have had a clear majority for two years now, so the responsibility for that falls on them.

    After finally deciding to do something about it, a bipartisan committee approved funding for an investigation into the allegations against Fain. But after Fain lost his re-election to Mona Das, the Seattle Times editorial board, who referred to Fain as a "treasure" in their endorsement of his campaign for Senate, called for the bipartisan senate committee to drop its investigation into the allegations. Why? Because continuing to pursue the investigation would "smack of partisan politics." That argument obviously doesn't make any sense, but what do you expect from the state's paper of record?

    Then, Republican Senators, who had solemnly called for an investigation after the allegation first emerged, started pretending like they hadn't called for an investigation. Sen. Ann Rivers led the charge here, writing a truly Trumpian guest ed in the The News Tribune. In the editorial, she attacks Faber's character with truly idiotic claims, criticizes the Times for finding a rape allegation against a sitting state senator newsworthy, and calls for the end of an investigation she and everybody else asked for. Of course, Republicans can do this shit because they're shameless hypocrites who only think of the world as a series of short-term political gains, but, still, it's galling every time it happens.

    And now that Republicans have predictably gone back on their word, Democrats have suddenly found their spines. In a strongly worded letter today to Republican Caucus Chair Senator Randi Becker, Democratic Senator John McCoy said Senate Minority Leader Mark Schoesler wouldn't approve any of the investigators, "many" of whom had been suggested by Republicans themselves. Without "good faith participation" from the GOP, McCoy added, "the only option at this point is for the Secretary of the Senate to suspend the process of hiring an investigator." He calls the behavior from Republicans "discouraging," and makes a strong argument for the senate's authority to investigate its own members so long as they're still seated.

    "Despite this unfortunate result, our caucus intends to stand by our values," McCoy writes. "We will continue to insist that any complaint against a member be addressed promptly, fairly, and without political bias, as required by the Senate’s Policy on Appropriate Workplace Conduct." This kind of strong language would have been very useful back in late September when the Democrats were busy doing nothing about Faber's accusation.

    In a statement, newly elected Senate Majority Leader Andy Billig reflected McCoy's sentiment. "I regret this outcome, but none of this changes the diligent efforts our Legislature has made, and continues to make, in creating a better culture in our legislative community. We must work together to do better on behalf of both survivors and those accused of this behavior.”

    The fact that the Senate won't be continuing an investigation—at least for now—is no surprise to Faber. "Honestly, I never believed for a minute that the people who said they wanted an investigation would make one happen," Faber said to The Stranger in a message. "The word 'investigation' was used as a shield by Fain, his defenders, and his donors. They claimed they could not take action without one. Well, now it's on them to either investigate it for themselves or acknowledge what so many of them have said between the lines from the beginning: It doesn't really matter to them."

    However, this commitment from Democrats to take seriously the stories of survivors and to address them "promptly" and "fairly" does seem like some sort of progress, and it aligns with what Faber thinks is the most useful next step.

    "I feel like now is a great time for a deeper investigation into all the ways this system fails survivors. That would be more interesting and useful anyway," Faber added. "I don't need an investigation to know what happened—this isn't some unsolved mystery. But I hope it will move things forward in some small way."

              Watch MYLES KENNEDY Perform In Hartford      Cache   Translate Page      
    On November 23, iRock Radio captured Myles Kennedy's solo performance at the Webster Theater in Hartford, Connecticut. Watch the footage below. Kennedy's debut solo album, "Year Of The Tiger", was released in March. On the disc, Myles embarked on his first venture as a solo artist by embracing musical elements and influences he hadn't explored previously in his career. Kennedy himself played banjo, lap steel, bass, and mandolin in addition to guitar throughout the album. The emotional journey and personal story of Myles is captured in a bluesy Americana album with a twist of country and rock, swirling and flowing around the incredible, soulful voice that the world has come to know. Myles told the "Nothing Shocking" podcast about the songwriting process for "Year Of The Tiger": "I knew what I didn't want to do, stylistically, was make another hard rock record, because I already have the luxury of playing in these two bands that have established a legacy and have put out multiple records, so to put out another album that just sounded the same, to me, I wasn't taking advantage of the opportunity of making a solo record in that case. I felt like it would dilute what I'm doing with the other projects. This was a really great opportunity for me to do something different, to challenge myself and make music that hopefully will really just kind of push me." Myles, not one to spend a lot of time at home, is touring the U.S. in support of "Year Of The Tiger". The 18-date run kicked off on November 13 in Chicago, Illinois and will wrap on December 16 in Seattle, Washington. The performances feature music from the album as well as selections from Myles's work with ALTER BRIDGE, THE MAYFIELD FOUR and SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS. WALKING PAPERS is opening all dates.

              Amazon's fleet of 767s is bad news for FedEx and UPS, Morgan Stanley says (AMZN, FDX, UPS)      Cache   Translate Page      

    amazon air

    • Amazon's cargo planes are poised to take market share from UPS and FedEx, Morgan Stanley said.
    • The online retailer had leased 40 Boeing 767 cargo planes and invested aggressively in its first air-cargo hub.
    • Amazon's air-delivery system could lead to as much as a combined 10% drop in revenue for UPS and FedEx.
    • Watch UPS, FedEx, and Amazon trade live.

    Amazon's cargo planes are poised to take market share from the logistics giants UPS and FedEx, Morgan Stanley says.

    "The market is missing the risk Amazon Air poses to UPS/FDX growth," a group of Morgan Stanley analysts led by Ravi Shanker said Tuesday. 

    In August 2016, the online retailer revealed its first cargo plane, Amazon One, — a converted Boeing 767 operated by Amazon partner Atlas Air — highlighting its desire to take over package-delivery logistics.

    At the time, Amazon said it leased 40 fleet units through air cargo partners Atlas Air and ATSG, and had invested aggressively in its first air-cargo hub located in Hebron, Kentucky, in order to reduce its reliance on the traditional logistics companies like UPS and FedEx. The Wall Street Journal reported in February 2017 that the tech titan was planning a $1.5 billion investment in the air-cargo hub, which Morgan Stanley says could potentially handle 100 planes. 

    According to the bank, Amazon can save $2 to $4 per package when using its Amazon Air deliveries, which could add up to savings of as much as $2 billion, or 6% of its global-shipping costs in 2019. Meanwhile, Amazon's cost effectivity could cause UPS and FedEx revenues to fall by a combined 10% by 2025.

    "Though Amazon Air's rollout is in the early innings, we estimate a 200-300 bps impact on UPS and FedEx Domestic Air Volume growth already, with more erosion expected as Amazon Air is built out," said Shanker.

    "We also estimate that Amazon that Amazon Air's lanes overlap with over two thirds of the volume flown by UPS+FedEx combined."

    As a result, Morgan Stanley lowered its price target for UPS  to $87 from $92 and for FedEx to $230 from $240.

              Former Pro Bowl CB sentenced to eight years in prison for attempted murder      Cache   Translate Page      
    Former NFL defensive back Brandon Browner pleaded no contest to an attempted murder charge on Tuesday, and he will now be going to prison for a very long time. According to TMZ, a judge sentenced Browner to eight years in a state prison. The 34-year-old was arrested back in July after he was accused of breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment and assaulting her. The police report stated that Browner “chased the victim, dragged her and then smothered her in a carpet.” He was also accused of stealing a Rolex watch before fleeing the scene. Browner pleaded no contest to one count of attempted murder and two counts of willful child endangerment in exchange for other charges of robbery, burglary and false imprisonment being dropped. He was initially facing life in prison. A former Pro Bowler who won Super Bowls with the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots, Browner has been in trouble with the law numerous times. He was arrested last year for allegedly making criminal threats against a woman and then book
              Pressure on Packers' front office after pulling plug on Mike McCarthy      Cache   Translate Page      
    Arguably the worst place to be in the NFL, as a team at least, is good but not good enough: perpetually caught in a limbo most franchises might find somewhat enviable but never quite arriving at the Promised Land. While the Green Bay Packers once captured a Lombardi Trophy with Mike McCarthy at the helm, the decade that followed has been filled with opportunities that were largely squandered because of poor coaching decisions. If it weren’t for the Atlanta Falcons making 28-3 forever synonymous with NFL meltdowns, the Packers losing a trip to the Super Bowl by surrendering a 19-7 fourth-quarter lead in Seattle in the 2014 season's NFC Championship would be among the most notable collapses in recent memory.   It’s easy enough to make a case for McCarthy by looking at his résumé. The Packers under his leadership won a title and made the playoffs eight seasons in a row leading up to 2016. But there was always the sense that a generational quarterback was being wasted, even if he has the same amount of rings as

              McCarthy gets the pipe      Cache   Translate Page      
    No one paying attention is particularly surprised Mike McCarthy got fired yesterday. The timing was certainly surprising, though.

    The Packers have been on a slide ever since they left the field in Seattle in the 2014 playoffs. They had some good moments and even made a run to the NFC Championship game in 2016, but this hasn't been a particularly good team for a while now. Some of it you can put on McCarthy, of course -- he seemed to lose the team this year. Some of the blame goes to Aaron Rodgers, an amazing talent but a diva of the first rank. A lot of the blame goes to former GM Ted Thompson, whose magic touch ran out years ago.

    The NFL is designed to punish the best teams and elevate the worst teams. It's the way to keep interest in the league going. Some teams have good fortune and can avoid the canyons; the Patriots are a great example of that, but the greatest example would be the Pittsburgh Steelers, who have been contenders consistently for nearly 50 years. The Steelers started climbing the mountain way back in 1972. I remember 1972 well, as it was the only post-Lombardi year that the Packers would win their division until Brett Favre arrived. 1972, as it happened, was a false hope for the Packers, and as someone who lived with false hope for the better part of 25 years, it's easy to recognize.

    Aaron Rodgers is the same age now that Bart Starr was in 1968. Nothing is guaranteed going forward and the Packers and their fans should not assume the good times are returning just because Mike McCarthy is leaving. There are some good players in Green Bay, but not enough of them. If I could trade rosters with the Chicago Bears, I would. If I could trade the immediate future of the Packers for the Bears, I would do that, too. I expect it will all turn to ashes in Chicago soon enough, because it usually does, but perhaps it won't this time. If you are a Packers fan, you have to assume your rivals are intelligent and competent. In many cases over the last 25 years, that has not been the case. But those days are gone. The Packers need to take the time to get this right, because it's just as easy to hire another Dan Devine as it is to hire a Mike Holmgren.

    Michael Flynn... is getting away with all this shit: Robert Mueller has recommended that Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, receive no prison time. Why?

There is still a shroud of secrecy around Flynn and what he told Mueller. What we can assume is that it was vital information.

    Seattle has a hockey team!: Sports fans rejoice! An NHL team will be in Seattle for the 2021-2022 hockey season. It was unanimously approved by the NHL’s board of governors. That’s great timing for the renovation project at Key Arena, the hockey practice facility at Northgate Mall, and the light rail extension to Northgate. That won’t be helpful for Key Arena traffic, but hey, light rail is light rail, baby. Mariner fans, meanwhile, are weeping because their whole team was gutted this week as the franchise “attempts to rebuild” or whatever.

    WSU GOP wants $2,500 to build their own border wall: College Republicans! They just make me want to scream! And not in a good way (:///).

Also, wasn’t the point that The American People weren’t supposed to pay for the wall? Charles Mudede has some thoughts.

    Can Washington Democrats grow a spine already?? The Dems announced that they will be suspending their investigation into Sen. Joe Fain and the rape allegations against him. This comes after pushback from GOP opposition.

    Remember that Washington teen who pushed another girl off a bridge this summer? The 18-year-old suspect pushed the 16-year-old victim off a 60-foot-bridge over the Lewis River. The victim suffered broken ribs, a punctured lung, and bruising. The push could have been fatal. The suspect waived her right to a speedy trial and a court date was set for February.

    No one wants to host the Oscars: I guess there’s no glitz and no glamor in hosting Hollywood’s biggest night. No one wants to host the 2019 Oscars. Part of that is because the award show’s ratings have been steadily declining. The host also has to walk a fine line politically—you can’t say nothing about shit like Donald Trump or the Me Too era but you can’t say too much. The Academy is playing it too safe in its decision and finding, well, no one to take the job.

    Breaking! Kevin Hart is going to host the Oscars. Woo. What a middle-of-the-road choice. I hear our deceased publisher's son, Tumult, really loves Kevin Hart. Big day for little Tumult and Ride Along 2 fans.

    Bear down: This is… a lot.


    Another EPA rollback: Trump is trying to reboot the coal industry. Ah, yes, exactly what we need. Look at all these reports about how the world is GOING TO DIE, excellent timing. Anyway, in order to resuscitate the industry, Trump is removing an Obama-era mandate on CO2 mitigating technology. It’s expensive. Trump will supposedly be removing the requirement.

    In her defense, she inherited a mess. The previous administration was not only incompetent, they were corrupt. They lied to the city about MoveSeattle. They knew, *before the vote*, that the levy did not allocate enough money for the projects they promised, but said and did nothing. That left the new administration with no other option but to fire the previous, crooked director of SDOT. What you are seeing is basically a continuation of Mayor Murray/Director Kubly incompetence and scandal. That does not mean she shouldn't turn the ship around. I realize she has also been dealing with more important matters (matters that are always the highest priority of any mayor). You have to make sure the police force is functioning properly, and not creating more problems than it solves. But you can't go around patting yourself on the back for making the "Best" decision (even though it probably was). At some point you have to deal with the obvious lack of leadership in transportation in what is obviously an unusually important time for Seattle. There are dozens of important decisions to be made, such as where to put the Ballard Link station (my suggestion is Ballard, not West Woodland) or whether to kill the killing streetcar line (my suggestion -- kill it). All the while the city is dealing with major transportation issues, such as the misguided viaduct replacement tunnel (which won't have ramps to Western or downtown) or collapsing bridges in Magnolia. The folks who have taken over for the folks that were corrupt and incompetent simply aren't cutting it. We need new leadership and we need it soon.

    My understanding is that the project is being done in phases, with the first phase being the blue section in the link Tom posted above. There has been some progress and they seem to be working more now that the rain has let up. From what I can tell, they are starting with the drainage. They have removed sections of side walk from various areas and some streets have been blocked off. There is also a huge pile of asphalt so work is definitely going forward. If you are going from Rainier Beach to Pioneer Square, it might be easier to just take the Chief Sealth trail and avoid the construction. I have no idea what is going on with other projects.

    Hello! I'm a local Seattle photographer looking for a female model comfortable with doing art shoots that do require partial to full nudity. I've attached a photo that I took and really want to move forward with this project! You will be paid for your time and it doesn't matter if you're not experienced shooting, I've worked with a lot of first time models. I do have masked themes as well, which would be an option for models wanting to keep anonymity. What I am NOT looking for is some kind of hook-up or explicit work, that's not what I'm doing here. Please email me if this project interests you. Please include a photo of yourself or I will not respond. I will provide a link to my portfolio upon email. Thank you!

              Maurice Dubin (Tenor) (1885-1950)      Cache   Translate Page      



    Maurice’s career spanned more than 50 years in Europe and the United States and without exception was referred to as “The Great Russian Tenor”.
    Maurice began his career under the tutelage of Pyotr Illyich Tchaikovsky when he was just 7 years old. In later years in England, he was coached by Hugo Heinz and represented by H. Bernhardt. His appearances included among others, the Royal Albert Hall and a command performance before King George V of England, as solo artist with a 125-piece symphony orchestra, conducted by Thomas Beecham. One of his favourite operatic roles of all time was in “Cavalleria Rusticana”. Maurice was in popular demand all over the United Kingdom where he was likened to the late Caruso. It was said he was one of the world’s greatest voice technicians and had a brilliant range from a low F to an F above high C.
    Maurice and his partner Rosie Dubin (Mezzo Soprano) emigrated to America in 1922 after World War 1. In 1925 Maurice produced his own opera in Chicago. Whilst continuing his opera and concert work in the Northwest of America, he sang for President Roosevelt. In the 1930’s he was originator and director of the Northwest Civic Opera company of Seattle. In addition, Maurice together with Ivan Novikoff opened up the Russian School of Ballet and Opera.
    In 1937 Maurice took the Grand National Opera Company on tour of the West Coast of America, producing a number of popular operas and some lesser known works such as the Chocolate Soldier and Billy Forget Me Not.
    Maurice’s last big work was a concert presented during the opening ceremonies of the First Narrows Bridge (Galloping Gertie) in 1940.
    Maurice and Rosie toured all over America but made Gig Harbour their permanent home. After the Second World War, Maurice continued to teach Voice coaching and technique until illness forced him into retirement.
    Maurice died in June 1950.

    • Mahomes throws four TDs to lead Chiefs past Raiders 40-33

    Philip Rivers watched Ben Roethlisberger do what the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback so often does – lead a game-tying drive late in the fourth quarter – and decided it was time for the Los Angeles Chargers to do something they so rarely do: win a big one on the road against a team with Super Bowl aspirations of its own.

    So the longtime Los Angeles quarterback gathered his teammates around him and delivered a very blunt message.

I’m doing fine.  I haven’t made much weight loss progress but I’m eating healthier.  The weight will come off as I start building up miles in my spring campaign. I’m working with Rachel to lose some weight and get my nutrition right.  It’s hard through the holidays but I’m giving myself a long runway into the spring so even with setbacks I can ease my way into a good race weight for Boston.  And I’m working with Coach to build some strength.  My core is not as strong as I’d like.  My legs fatigue way faster than I think they should.  My aerobic fitness is good, but my legs can’t get near that aerobic barrier and hold it like they used to.  I went to the PT to get his opinion and there’s nothing wrong with me per se I’m just getting old.  I’m healthy and not injured.  With the shorter days I’ve been pushing my runs out into the evening.  I find this is a dead time for me anyhow.  I’m too mentally tired to do anything creative.  I find it nice and head-clearing to get out on the road in the cold and dark with my lights.  It’s peaceful.  Sometimes the stars are out, or the moon and it’s quite pretty.  … Like I said, we are going to spend some time talking about my old running partner Buddy the Wonder Dog today.  He’s doing OK.  He’s here with me now, sleeping.  The old saying is that you can’t teach and old dog new tricks. I beg to differ.  You can teach an old dog bad habits rather easily.  Buddy has never been given human food.  We never fed him from the table or scraps. I never gave him anything I was eating and as a result he never learned how to beg.  You could eat, he wouldn’t bother you.  As he’s gotten older I started to toss him a peanut now and then.  We let him have the morsels that fell on the floor and what have you.  I figured, hey, how long has he got left?  Let him live a little.  What’s the harm?  Of course, now it doesn’t’ matter what I’m eating.  A soon as I sit on the couch his nose is 3 inches from my food staring intently.  And any time we’re in the kitchen he’s underfoot on scrap patrol.  So, yes, you can teach an old dog bad habits.  The same is probably true for humans. On with the show.   … I’ll remind you that the RunRunLive podcast is ad free and listener supported.  What does that mean?

His work has appeared in all the major running magazines, such as Runner’s World, Running Times, Trailrunner, and Marathon & Beyond. For Ultrarunning magazine, considered the “voice of the sport” of ultra long distance running, he’s served as a regular columnist since 2008, and he has additionally supplied the magazine with dozens of uniquely quirky race reports.  Ideas for The Tao of Running were shaped by the 60 one hundred mile races he’s participated in and the almost two hundred other long distance races he’s completed. He holds a Master’s Degree from the University of Kansas in English Literature and his fiction credentials include stories in Boy’s Life magazine and in numerous literary magazines and one published novel, Cries-at-Moon of the Kitchi-Kit. His second book on the mental side of running, The Mindful Runner: Finding Your Inner Focus, was just released on November 1 of 2018. Section two – Courage- http://runrunlive.com/courage Outro Alright, I appreciate you sticking with me through the emotional journey of  Episode 4-3989of the RunRunLive Podcast I’m sure it took great courage on your part.     I ran the Thanksgiving 5K with my daughter and a bunch of people from my running club.  I had a good time.  It’s always great to see friends and its always great to spend time with my kids.  I also decided to stop stressing out about pace and time.  This is just about the only 5K I run each year so it bothers me if I don’t’ race well.  When we woke up before the race it was 9 degrees Fahrenheit, which is very cold for this early in the winter.  There was a nice little breeze too.  So itf you’re one of those softies who believe in windchill it would have felt about zero.  There was no warming up.  I didn’t even bother.  I just went out at what felt like a good hard pace and tried to hold it.  I think I ended up with7:20’s, but who cares, right? I’ve been trying to follow a good morning routine with stretching, meditation, reading and writing and it helps.  I haven’t made much progress on my new book about startup sales, ironically because the startup I’m in is keeping me uber stressed out and busy.  Thanks for playing along.  Next episode will be our 400th official episode. I’ll have to think hard about what I want to do next.  … I decided to write that quick update on Buddy because I got an email from long time friend Janet inquiring for his health and wellbeing.  Let me tell you my Buddy story of the week.  Monday night I was getting ready to leave work.  It was after 6:30.  I had a need to pick up a bag of dog food, because we were almost at the bottom of the barrel.  This is ok, because the dog food store is on my way home.  Then I realized I have forgotten to bring the 10% off coupon for said dog food that I received in the mail and was quite excited about.  I believe the coupon algorithm in the great coupon generating AI computer typically only sends coupons when you don’t need something.  So, the universe has made an error in my favor and I aim to take advantage of it. I decide to go home first.  Which is not on my way.  But I can pick up the dog and take him to the pet store with me as an outing.  It’s one of the few places they allow dogs.  As I leave work it is sluicing rain.  Again.  Rainiest month in history.  (Like a normal week in Seattle or London.)  I get home and go to let Buddy out.  He’s been in the house all day.  He looks outside at the weather and digs in his heels.  “Like, it’s only been 8 hours, I can hold it.  I’m not going from warm bed to cold rain!” I push him out onto the wet front steps.  I do some quick things around the house.  I grab the coupon off the fridge and retrieve him for the trip to the store.  It’s still pouring rain.  I’m not dressed for it having just come from work.  He digs in his heels as I try to load him into the truck.  Armful of wet dog into the seat.  We drive off to the pet store to get the food.  It’s late.  No one is in the parking lot and the store is empty.  I unload the dog and lead him on the leash to the store.  He wants to wander around the parking lot and sniff everything.  It’s pouring rain, still.  We enter the empty store and I lead him back to the section where his food bags are stacked.  Leaving a trail of wet footprints.  I have to keep pulling him away from all the interesting things to sniff on the way.  I know to keep an eye on him because the pet store is full of pet smells.  There have been hundreds of other dogs in there getting groomed and trained and just wandering around.  I know if I don’t watch him, he may try to mark something.  It’s not that he has that bad habit, it’s just that his reptilian brain gets overwhelmed by the scent of other dogs.  For a dog nose that place must be the equivalent of technicolor.  I find the food and sure enough as I’m hoisting a 30-pound bag up onto my shoulder one handed with the leash in the other hand, he starts peeing on the floor.  Dammit! I yank him away and go to check out.  Now I have a moral decision to make.  A decision that requires courage.  Pretend it didn’t happen or confess to the young lady at the register.  And as I’m practicing doing things that scare me this month, I decide to come clean, so to speak.  She says they have “Sanitary Stations” just for this and asks if I want her to clean it up or would I like to do it myself – with the clear emphasis on ‘do it yourself’.  I grab a handful of paper towels from the sanitary station and the bottle of organic squirty stuff.  I mop up my friend the dog’s unfortunate leavings.  I have to make another trip to get more towels.  He was serious about his duties.  When all is as clean as it’s going to get we wander back to the register to retrieve the big bag of food.  I ask her if most people just ignore it and leave.  She says that mostly happens with poop.  Que the ominous foreshadowing. We exit the building.  It is, impossibly, raining even harder and colder.  Me in my dress pants and shirt with a big bag of food balanced on my shoulder like a suburban lumberjack and the leash in the other hand.  I decide to pause to let him sniff the pots outside the door.  I feel bad that I had to practice urinatus-interuptus on him in the store.  But he has other plans and begins to poop on the sidewalk in front of the store.  I say ‘no’ and try to pull him away but he manages to leave a trail of breadcrumbs, so to speak across the parking lot.  Eventually I wrangle him and the bag of food into the truck.  Now I’m stuck in another moral conundrum, but since I’ve already got momentum, I grab a plastic bag (that I keep in the truck for these types of outings) and stoop amid the puddles to undo the poo.  And that is my old Buddy story from this week.  There is no moral to it, but I think I earned some karma.  and I’ll see you out there.

              Theatre: North Side Story      Cache   Translate Page      
    In The Heights, Music and Lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Book by Quiara Alegria Hudes, Concept by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Directed by May Adrales. Seattle Rep through December 30.

    So there is such a thing a performance being too large for the hall that contains it. I've always thought of the venerable Bagley-Wright Theater as being a large venue with a lot of space on stage. Yet, for In The Heights, it is seriously too small, both on stage and as far as sound quality is concerned.

    Let me deal with this bad news first before pushing on to say how good the cast is. The sound quality from the performance pitched the on-stage band against the miked-up actors, and the result was an unsatisfying tie. Often the words got lost in the upswelling music, and the audience was at times blasted by the resulting combined volume. It took much of the opening number for my ears to adjust and actually hear the words. The touring stage was a great design of multiple levels and exits, but it cramps the forward part of the stage, and I found myself marveling at the dancers not getting in each others' ways as much as their superior choreography.

    And yes, the dancing is fantastic, the music is ecstatic, and the actors are all superior both in acting ability and the power of their voices. There isn't a weak singer in the lot (By way of comparison, you can give the role of the tailor in The Mikado to someone who does not have a huge amount of vocal range). This is an incredibly amazing cast from the leads to the ensemble who do their darnedest to sell the story.

    And the story is, well, it is not the selling point. I can't give you a good summary without tipping my hand to spoilers, as you can see where everything is going from the get-go. It takes place over the 4th of July weekend in Washington Heights, a strong Hispanic community at the northern tip of Manhattan. Poor but proud, its people are second and third generation, both American and loyal to their family heritages. They've made something of themselves, and can make a bit more, but it may mean moving away from the Heights.

    There is the bodega owner that wants to go back to his family's homeland. There is the student coming back from college. There is the father who has hopes for his daughter. There are the girls who work in the beauty shop. There is the neighborhood matriarch. Everybody gets their moment, everybody gets their song, everybody aims for a showstopper. There are revelations. There are fireworks. There is a power black-out. There is a winning lottery ticket. And by the end of it all, every character has their arc resolved in time for the finale.

    The stakes in all this, however, are pretty low, and it is more of a slice of life with strong Latin flavor and a hip-hop beat. The threats are pretty mild, and when one of them seems about to rear its head, it diffused and lets all the air out. There are no real surprises. As I said, so much of what is good about this performance are the performers. Ryan Alvarado, Sophia Macias, David Kaverman, Alyssa Gomez, Stephanie Gomerez, Tony Chirolders, Karmine Alers and Yassmin Alers (yes, sisters), heck yes, even Henry Gainsa as the Piragua Guy engaged in a life-and-death struggle with Mr. Softee. All great.

    I want to say that this is riding on the coat-tails of Lin-Manuel (Hamilton!) Miranda - they promote that angle heavily, and it was his first work. But the original show (pre-Ham) pulled down all manner of awards both on and off Broadway, has had some serious national tours (It was here in Seattle at the 5th Avenue in 2010 - probably a better venue), and will become a movie in 2020. There is something here that engages and delights, but it doesn't have that much foundation to it. This is one of those plays where I look at 4 Tony Awards (as opposed to a single award for the clearly superior Come From Away), and wonder what I am missing about the tastes of Modern American Theatre.

              The Next TV Contract For The NHL      Cache   Translate Page      
    from Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star, The NHL officially awarded a team to Seattle on Tuesday, and the move into a top 20 television market, starting in 2021, will coincide with a new American TV deal and perhaps a sharp rise in the cap. The cap has risen every year while NBC coughs up $200 million (U.S.) annually on average to hockey-related revenue. That deal ends after the 2020-21 season, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said. In a new deal, the NHL could easily double that money, if not more, independent media consultant Brad Adgate said. “It’s going up,” Adgate said. “If you look at what’s happening in media the last decade — so many sports networks, streaming video. Amazon is poking around. Facebook made a bid for cricket. “If you look at the NBA, they tripled (their TV revenue). It’s reasonable to believe the NHL goes from $200 million to $500 million a year.” more plus other topcs...

    SEA ISLAND, Ga. (Dec. 4, 2018) – The National Hockey League announced today that it has granted an expansion franchise to Seattle. The League’s 32nd franchise, which will begin play in 2021-22, was approved in a unanimous vote by the NHL’s Board of Governors during a meeting today in Sea Island, Ga. Ownership of the Seattle franchise will principally reside with David Bonderman. The franchise will play its home games at Seattle Center Arena, which is currently undergoing renovations. The Seattle franchise will pay a $650-million expansion fee. That fee will be distributed in equal shares to 30 of the NHL’s presently existing clubs (all except Vegas, which entered the League with an expansion fee of $500 million in 2017-18). “Today is an exciting and historic day for our League as we expand to one of North America’s most innovative, beautiful and fastest-growing cities,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said. “We are delighted to add David Bonderman, Tod Leiweke and the entire NHL Seattle group to the National Hockey League family. And we are thrilled that Seattle, a city with a proud hockey history that includes being the home for the first American team ever to win the Stanley Cup, is finally joining the NHL.”

    jt19 Exactly my point, dude. Obviously "rivalries" are an issue, as the NHL wants to keep teams together that have them ie. edmonton vs calgary etc, but the Coyotes have been noted for having some sort of "rivalry" with the Ducks, Sharks, Kings, Canucks etc. Makes sense that teams in the Pacific Division would have them with one another, lol. As such, seems odd to throw them to the "wolves" in the Central, clearly they're nowhere close to that timezone etc, but I guess with Colorado also in that position, the Coyotes will have to make due. As stated, new rivalries can always be formed. Hope the Coyotes HAVE A CHANCE to stay in AZ.

    Based off of what? Any reason why they shouldn’t? The only potential issue I could see is maybe a large part of the Texas fanbase would already be devoted to the Stars but the state is big enough, with a big enough population, to support two teams. But they would surely test the waters to see if a Houston team is viable before moving there.

    Glad they’re keeping the expansion rules from the Vegas expansion. Realistically the expansion rules weren’t bad and teams had plenty of time to try and figure out what their strategy was going to be. Teams are going to be a lot smarter this time around and not just give out prospects/picks/mid tier players just to protect a certain player as teams tried to do with Vegas. Plus, the rules are beneficial to Seattle fielding at least a somewhat appealing team. The last thing any sports league should want with their expansion team is for them to be a laughing stock for 10 years as they try to scrap together a semi-respectable roster while attempting to build a farm system.

              Trying Physical Therapy First For Low Back Pain May Curb Use Of Opioids      Cache   Translate Page      
    Though Americans spend an estimated $80 billion to $100 billion each year in hopes of easing their aching backs, the evidence is mounting that many pricey standard treatments — including surgery and spinal injections — are often ineffective and can even worsen and prolong the problem. A study published Wednesday in the journal Health Services Research suggests trying physical therapy first may at least ease the strain on the patient's wallet in the long term — and also curb reliance on opioid painkillers, which carry their own risks. The researchers, from the University of Washington in Seattle and George Washington University in Washington, D.C., analyzed more than 150,000 commercial health insurance claims filed between 2009 and 2013 in six northwestern states. They checked the files of patients who had a new diagnosis of low back pain, comparing the insurance claims of people who had received physical therapy before seeing their family doctor or a specialist to those of people who

    Kids who vape and use other forms of e-cigarettes are likely to try more harmful tobacco products like regular cigarettes, but e-cigarettes do hold some promise for helping adults quit. That's according to the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine , which published a comprehensive public health review of more than 800 studies on e-cigarettes on Tuesday. "There is conclusive evidence that most products emit a variety of potentially toxic substances. However the number and intensity is highly variable," says David Eaton , who heads the committee that wrote the report. He is also the dean and vice provost of the graduate school of the University of Washington, Seattle. "In some circumstances, such as their use by nonsmoking adolescents and young adults, their adverse effects clearly warrant concern. In other cases, such as when adult smokers use them to quit smoking, they offer an opportunity to reduce smoking-related illness." In fact, 15 of the studies NAS reviewed

Serena The Sex Worker is our ethereal guide to this menacing world - but why are there pterodactyls overhead?

    • Linux-friendly Type 7 modules take to the skies

      Congatec unveiled two rugged, up to 16-core COM Express Basic Type 7 modules for aircraft computers: a Xeon D 15xx and Pentium D-15xx based Conga-B7XD and an Atom C3xxx driven Conga-B7AC. There’s also a new Conga-X7EVAL Type 7 carrier.

      Congatec has been slow to get into the COM Express Basic Type 7 “server-on-module” market but has made up for lost time by announcing two Linux- and Windows supported Type 7 models. Designed for “converged edge servers in aircrafts,” the Intel Xeon D and Pentium D based Conga-B7XD and the Intel Atom C3xxx based Conga-B7AC are the first aviation-focused Type 7 modules we’ve seen.

      Eventually Crossplane could help users automate deployment practices such as specifying which cloud provider — and which region inside that cloud provider’s network — should run a given application depending on how and where it is used. If it works as designed, this could make it much easier to manage a multicloud environment, which is an undertaking most companies do for strategic rather than practical reasons at the moment.

    • IBM and Red Hat want to become the leader in global hybrid and multicloud market

      When the news hit on October 29, 2018, that IBM had acquired Red Hat Inc., in a $34 billion deal, it stunned the technology world. And with good reason, as Red Hat’s merging with IBM was the biggest software acquisition ever achieved. But outside all of the hype, what will this actually mean for Red Hat going forward? To put it simply: global growth and worldwide leadership.

      “It puts us several years ahead of where we have been — or where we would have been, frankly — and ultimately … our intent is that with IBM, we’ll become the leading hybrid and multicloud provider in the world,” said Mike Ferris (pictured), vice president of technical business development and business architecture at Red Hat.

    • Red Hat leads the charge into remote site and edge computing with open source hyperconverged infrastructure

      Initially aimed at remote office/branch office (ROBO) deployment, more Red Hat customers have been looking for infrastructure solutions at the edge. In industries like energy, retail, banking, telecommunications, and the public sector, many organizations rely on business-critical applications that must be deployed with limited space, budgetary constraints, and a growing scarcity of specialized IT staff.
