Fri, 07 Oct 2016 20:02:10 -0700

The cheering over Trump’s tax brag is truly chilling

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 20:16:35 -0700

I asked some Trump supporters what they thought of him bragging about possibly not paying any income tax. Not only were they fine with it — it’s a key selling point for why he should be president.

Another one? Mass shootings now just leave us numb

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 20:13:47 -0700

Gun violence, rapes show Seattle needs to hire police, not defund them

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 20:34:51 -0700

This would be a terrible time to disarm and defund the Seattle police, as activists want. The city should listen to the silent victims who aren’t down protesting at City Hall.

So ... you know that lime-green Pronto bike system Seattle just bought? Never mind.

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 20:15:13 -0700

One of Gov. Jay Inslee’s biggest liabilities is that he wasn’t honest with voters about taxes. But that was back in the quaint time before politics became completely untethered from reality.

Trump backers brazenly bandy sexist anti-Clinton vitriol

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 20:29:21 -0700

If a local Trump supporters’ group is any indication, get ready for a wave of rank sexism in the presidential election — and after November as well.

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 19:56:10 -0700

Seattle visit could make Trump lust for a piece of boomtown

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 14:57:07 -0700

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 20:03:46 -0700

Seattle’s proposed new police station isn’t a bunker. It’s a boondoggle — designed that way to try to placate some of the same groups that are now protesting it.

Washington state already has a strict gun law — but it only applies to hunters

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 19:47:29 -0700
