This Last Week in the News

posted by on October 20 at 10:35 AM

(Due to a flu that knocked out damn near all the editorial staff, including me, this week’s Week in the News is a Monday edition.)

Last week’s print-edition news section was devoted entirely to election endorsements, including our handy, printable, set-it-next-to-your-ballot-when-you-vote cheat sheet. Elsewhere in the paper, Eli Sanders wrote about the distinct possibility that Washington State will elect Obama—and still send several Republicans to high state and federal offices.

Meanwhile, on Slog: I posted video of the Stranger Election Control Board’s interview with Tim Eyman; Dominic Holden reported on a lawsuit filed by Magnolia NIMBYs to keep housing for the homeless out of Discovery Park; I wrote about yet another bizarre kerfuffle among the 36th District Democrats, this one about the language on the sample ballot; Dominic gave props to City Council Member Sally Clark for moving forward on two important housing bills; I reported on Bellevue land mogul Kemper Freeman’s $100,000 contribution to the anti-mass-transit campaign (which has all of ten contributors); Dominic reported on layoffs at innovative architecture and development firm Pb Elemental; I wrote about King County Executive Ron Sims’s announcement of major budget cuts and layoffs at the county; Dominic reported on efforts to preserve historic buildings in the Pike-Pine neighborhood; I gave a brief guide to some important, but low-profile, races on this year’s ballot; and Eli went to Tacoma to cover Joe Biden’s 12,000-person rally at Cheney Stadium.

Oh, and Jonah Spangenthal-Lee was on vacation.

This is what you get for all sharing the same "water pipe" while churning out SECB endorsements.

yeah, it seems like the Stranger staff is always sick...maybe you guys need flu shots and need to improve your diets, get a little exercise and lay off the pills and coke?

Next time, get flu shots, and wash your hands in hot water and soap every time you go to the bathroom, and use kleenex when u sneeze.

No, I'm NOT joking.
