Sun, Sorta Surf, and Sacked Cats

I spent the vast majority of my day at Discovery Park. It’s ginormous. Put it like this – the Loop Trail is 2.8 miles, and they’re not factoring in the extra mile or two you’ll tramp if you scramble down to be a beach bum. ‘Tis one o’ my favorite places in the universe. Here’s …

Yer Captain’s Got a Motivational Speech for Ye

I’ll take it as a personal affront if there is not a plethora of material. You don’t want a lawyer with delusions of being a pirate to be pissed at you. Besides, it’s my birthday and, if it isn’t a good Carnival, I might cry. If there’s anything that you don’t want to see more …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. Yes, we’re very late today. That’s because I’ve been at Discovery Park, playing with sea critters and hiking my very legs off. When there are blue skies in Seattle, it’s best to enjoy them pronto. See that? That’s blue sky, that is. I snapped that photo with a POS …

Tears for Strangers

You know, the last thing I expected was a little jolt when I found out Michael Jackson died. I wasn’t a fan, didn’t like his music, and certainly didn’t like the man. But I can’t deny that it felt like there was suddenly a strange empty space in the world. A rather small one for …

But No, Really, Private’s Better than Public!

Because, you know, private insurers take such better care of us than the government ever could! The health insurance industry maximizes their profits by delivering as little care as they can legally get away with, or for that matter, illegally. Health insurers have forced consumers to pay billions of dollars in medical bills that the …

A Little More Tarnish for the Bush Legacy

I do believe that at the end of the day, the Bush regime will go down in American history as the most corrupt, dirty, rotten and downright disgusting administration ever. They’re already the biggest bunch of scoundrels seen on our national stage, and the revelations just keep coming: In an important new article from Murray …

Food Safety Fail

Ladies and gentlemen, I present Exhibit A in the case for stricter food safety regulations and oversight: Question: Do the folks who own Orca Distribution West, Inc. and Setton Pistachios – do they let their own children eat the shit they sell? The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning people not to eat California …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. Michele Bachmann passed batshit insane a long time ago, and yet somehow she keeps getting crazier: Last week, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), solidifying her well-deserved reputation for madness, insisted she will refuse to cooperate with the 2010 census. This happens to be illegal, but the Minnesota Republican has an …

Feds Express a Decided Interest in Sean Hannity’s Pal Hal

Quick, my darlings, to the wayback machine! Remember this bit o’ drama last January? We’re already aware that the white-supremacist crowd is already creating a higher level of security concerns surrounding Barack Obama’s inauguration. So somehow it probably figures that Sean Hannity’s old pal Hal Turner would be out there leading the parade of nutcases …

Another Sanctimonious Sinner

The Mark Sanford Mystery is solved. Turns out he wasn’t hiking, he was humping: Boy, somehow you could just see this coming when people started asking where Gov. Mark Sanford had disappeared to: COLUMBIA, S.C. – During a Wednesday news conference at his office in Columbia, Gov. Mark Sanford admitted to having an extramarital affair …
