Older GOPers Wonder About This Here Shutdown: Including Dave Reichert. "At a meeting with House Republicans in the Capitol on Tuesday, Representative Dave Reichert of Washington pointedly questioned what the end game is for the party, according to someone who attended and spoke on the condition of anonymity because the session was supposed to be confidential. Mr. Reichert, typically mild-mannered, represents a highly competitive suburban Seattle district."
Open letter to Metro: Dear Metro, Might I suggest that you discontinue paying people to stop bus-goers from getting on crowded buses at rush hour? Humans are capable of determining for themselves whether anyone else can fit on a bus without the intervention of vest-clad authorities who anyway don't even bother to try to get folks to squeeze together in the bus and actually prevent the smooth functioning of Metro at the busiest time of day. Quit it with the nanny-stating, Metro. Seattleites don't need any more learned helplessness when it comes to coping with plain old real-life conflict. Thanks! Love, Jen
