Don Duncan's article does bring back memories. I also used to go to the market with my mother on Saturdays. This was in the early to middle 50's. We would ride the bus from Burien and she would tell me about growing up in White Center during the depression and taking the trolly car from the the city limits. My memories of the market are better than Mr. Duncan's, but buying food on a limited budget was still the reason for going. There was a Hooverville down south of Atlantic around the switch yards. My father spent a summer there before WWII started. The "good old days" were not good just old.

No wonder you took such offense at my post about the white male faces at the yearlykos. You mean you don't approve of white male faces at yearlykos? How racist of you Stamn. Why don't you write the organizers and demand they meet a quota with your stamp of approval?

@RR of course not. But his bad memories of being poor have nothing do do with the market per se'. Its like me going to Gasworks park and saying that its not a good seattle landmark because I used to get beat up there. Even if I describe the assaults in amazing detail, it doesn't reduce the positive value of the park. Yeah the depression was awful. Yeah it was unfortunate that the guy was in poverty. No that doesn't make the PPM any less special... And if you actually read the article, instead of responding to it emotionally, thats what he's saying. Hell if he weren't less miserable, he'd be saying "I remember when we were poor, we were able to actually afford fresh food at the market, and the people at the diner sometimes helped us out by giving us free pastries so we could eat."

But we all know Clinton was a publican. YLB is the one that pointed it out in the above open thread #19 Clinton was a REPUBLICAN president But a nominal Democrat.

Bush is a liar - Fact publicans suck- Fact Democrats are saviors- Well is there any other party around to take the hand off from corruption and utter failure?

I don’t have to shut up. Freedom of speech. Yeah! Precious thing that first ammendment. You (Stamn) have a right to have diarrhea of the mouth. But opinions are like assholes - everyone's got one.

RE 53: Facts ARE fACTS. They are either accurate or they are not. You impeach the source of the fact and not the fact itself. Facts are not partisan. They are what they are.

@20 Have you ever seen a college town with enough jobs to support everyone who has to work his way through school?
   In college during the early 60's, wow, you fit the stereotype of liberal bloggers. White angry middle age male. No wonder you took such offense at my post about the white male faces at the yearlykos.

... Source: James Carville, “Had Enough?” (Simon & Schuster, 2003), p. 87.
   I was wrong, there is no reason Roger should use unbiased sources. Facts are unimportant when preaching to the choir. Bush is a liar - Amen publicans suck- Amen Democrats are saviors- Amen

At the end of Carter’s term unemployment was 7.2%. A year into Reagan’s term it was 8.6%, and a year later it was 10.4%. At the end of Reagan’s term unemployment was 5.3%. At the end of Clinton’s term it was 3.9%.
