This Week on Slog

Posted by on March 24 at 14:45 PM

In the last seven days we posted 150 entries and received 1,425 comments. That’s an average of 21 posts per day and almost 10 comments per post. Smokin’!

Since it seems like our comments threads were on fire more so than ever this week, I’m going to look back at the hottest topics:

Saturday, March 18

Josh Feit gathered 19 comments on his post about a student walkout at Seattle Prep.

Kurt B. Reighley’s outrage at Poster Giant’s ballsy tear-down tactics gathered 24 comments.

And Dan Savage’s post about South Park’s creators standing up to Scientology garnered 17 comments.

Sunday, March 19

Eli Sanders’s item about Maria Cantwell and Barack Obama’s appearance at Garfield where they were ambushed by antiwar protesters attracted 13 comments.

Monday, March 20

The liveliest discussions on Monday were the Iraq War open thread and a conversation about downtown up-zoning.

Tuesday, March 21

The most popular thread (with 13 comments) was linked to Kurt B. Reighley’s announcement that Capitol Hill’s beloved Confounded Books is closing.

Wednesday, March 22

Dan Savage asked Slog readers to help name a new gay bar opening soon on East Pike Street near Broadway. The owners were deliberating between Pulse and Sugar, neither of which readers were thrilled about. After 80 or so comments, “Fagbar” came out ahead.

Erica C. Barnett’s post about Peter Steinbrueck’s proposed changes to the mayor’s downtown height and density increases attracted 38 comments.

And Dan posted an artist’s rendering of a condo project planned for Broadway and Mercer Street (the building he and Erica argued about on Tuesday) and gathered 27 more comments about smart development.

Thursday, March 23

Hannah Levin infected the Slogosphere with an absolutely compelling time-waster and reaped 73 comments as music lovers puzzled communally.

And Dan gathered 33 more remarks on naming the new Pike Street bar.

Today (Friday, March 24)

As of right now, a likeness of Britney Spears giving birth is neck and neck in the contest for most comments with Cienna Madrid’s response to Joel Connelly’s mention in today’s P-I of one of her anti-Cantwell posts from last week.

This post reminds me of those "best of" episodes of Three's Company where there was no storyline, just a masturbatory repetition of the jokes the writers liked best. I hated those episodes.

Now stop it and let me read some posts.

Does this count as your SLOG entry of the day, Amy-Kate? You may go home now.
