The biggest hate crime in Seattle is the daily ageism that takes place at every coffee shop and street corner.

The Paroline slaying is but one extreme example of it.

So was View Ridge like, "Man. They hate children down in Laurelhurst. What can we do that's even bitchier and more entitled?"

I fear the neighborhood competition this will spark. Next: Puppy kicking in Maple Leaf? Watch for it.

I just hope that if Obama wins, that the democrats will be as gracious in enduring four years of Obama-bashing as the republicans were in enduring eight years of Bush-bashing.

Worst hate crime in Seattle ever?

The last time the Slog Censor deleted one of my posts.

And no, I don't feel like letting it go.

having a date for withdrawal is great. i'm not too enthusiastic considering how that takes a bit of the wind from obama's sails... but that was the goal: to get out in the best way possible.

Yes, your hateful compadres like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity are very gracious. In fact, your claiming that Democrats are more likely to be child molesters was the very epitome of graciousness and class. Blow it out your ass, you fucking liar. Blow it out your fucking ass.
