I don't read the stranger anymore; just the slog.

Wow I'm so impressed at how just because the Stranger SAID SO, transit is back on the ballot. Good to know the meetings, lobbying, arm-twisting, and activism were redundant. Thanks, guys.

The biggest crime around the Puget Sound is ageism.

People all over the region make ageist comments in a senophobic version of the Deep South.

In the workplace, it's ok to let loose with any number of comments, verbal assaults, and innuendos with impunity.

What about Brandon Kelly's conversation with his family was "sort of" racist? It seemed all around racist to me. And saying that it was only sort of racist dismisses the pervasiveness of white privilege and systemic racism in this country, and was evident in this conversation.

Sure, it might be hard to call your family racists in a public sphere, but that is how many of our families act. We can't dismiss people's behavior just because they have restrained from killing any black people lately.

I visited the folks in Oregon this weekend- every time I changed the channel past MTV, and there were black rappers singing, Dad would say- "Hey! Is that Obama's Inaugural Party you just passed up?" Did half of me REALLY come from a man that would say crap like that?

Lick my hairy asshole, SECB. There was NO guarantee that Sound Transit would be able to turn around and get a ballot measure together for this year; you were running on nothing but smug arrogance.

what the hell is up with the cover of this issue? it's apparent that the stranger is mostly an all white paper. i guess it's also fitting if your going to have an article about racism in your paper to also have it on your front cover.
