The Best of Slog: MLK, the Seahawks, and Foreign Correspondents

Posted by on Sat, Jan 25, 2014 at 10:07 AM

A Person of Interest: Dominic Holden breaks some important news in the Neighbour's arson case, and then he reports on the aftermath.

"Hannan's privilege is on overdrive in this story" Danielle Henderson on Caleb Hannan's wrong-headed Grantland piece.

Seeing Seattle for the First Time: Brendan Kiley introduced Slog to a Stranger reader who recently regained her sight and wanted to see what pretty things Seattle had to offer. You had some great advice for her. Here's the follow-up post.

"Violent Vandalism?" KIRO treats anarchists very shoddily.

MLK All the Way: Slog covered Martin Luther King, Jr. Day locally and nationally. Here are some posts we wrote: The bookshelf. The march. The rally. The people who tried to use the day to pit minorities against one another. The cuteness.

State of Emergency: With the help of a correspondent on the scene, Brendan Kiley lets us know what's going on in Thailand. It's a case of the plutocrats versus the oligarchs.

We Are Apparently Ready for Some Football: The Seahawks won, and we had a lot to say. About pot, about pedestrian deaths, about bragging, about being loud. Kelly O also had something to say about men in Seahawks drag.

Calling Bullshit: Patty Murray calls out Reince Priebus, and it's a beautiful thing to see.

Tainted Cocaine: Here's what happened.

If You Believe It, Sign It: Goldy says "It Is Time to End Unsigned Editorials and Endorsements."

He's Just Asking Questions: What if Bertha isn't stuck?

$15 for the 12th Man: Thanks to Slog tipper Lesley, whose e-mail kicked off a conversation that led to this sign, which you should feel free to use however you please. (Here's a link to the PDF.)

Evidently there is no legal definition of "person of interest" so The Stranger can use the term freely but I trust that there's a mature level of wisdom amongst the staff to remember Richard Jewell and his false accusation in the 1996 Olympic bombing in Atlanta.
