@E.J.: I meant what I wrote, the fubar sign up process is emblematic of the entirety. From conception, to passage, to implementation is a train wreck and the worst is yet to come.posted @ Thursday, December 12, 2013 - 11:44
This seems like a really poor choice for this. This is a proposed industrial use in the middle of what is essentially a residential neighborhood.
Why wouldn't you out it on the route to the existing dump site or near the Olympic industrial zone?posted @ Wednesday, December 11, 2013 - 21:11

@Humbucker bob: it probably wouldn't have been noticed. Someone called the cops on the guy, probably because they could see the car parked in the loading zone.
When you go to other people's houses, do you ask them if you can charge your phone? Or do you just go ahead and do it without asking permission?posted @ Friday, December 6, 2013 - 09:55
The story has presented to the general public in way that's meant to rile up fans and detractors electrical vehicles. This is really a story about a jerk who thought he could unapologetically do what he wanted when he wanted. The story on 11alive has the police report, they didn't know the amount of electricity stolen and it didn't factor into their decision. I suppose you can disagree with him being arrested for his pattern of behavior but to say he was arrested only because he stole $.05 of electricity is a lie by omission.posted @ Friday, December 6, 2013 - 09:48

You guys aren't thinking, if his BAC was something well over the limit there is no way it would get there from one beer. It doesn't say the witness saw him shotgunning 3-4 beers.

@swhitney: way to blame the victim for being robbed by a social parasite. The problem isn't that they were walking at night, the problem is that there is an expectation that you can't do so safely.posted @ Friday, November 8, 2013 - 15:04

Dugas and Forshee were coming up with a dream scenario. The main problem is the lack of demand for the product they wanted to produce. Blue Heron, though ideal sounding, would be a loser, the speculated $3 billion impact might materialize over the next 50 years. The investment in getting the catapillar plant is way more lucrative. Bringing industrial production, specifically high tech, to our burg is the best way to go.posted @ Saturday, November 2, 2013 - 21:53

Either the perpetrators have an eleven month head start or the investigation was ongoing while people in his administration continued to lie about the reason it happened. If the second scenario is true, his admin willfully lied during an election because they knew it would hurt his reelection chances essentially putting himself and his politics ahead of our collective safety.
If the second scenario is true, it's just an empty platitude sprinkled with some self aggrandizing statements. Does he want a cookie for doing his job?posted @ Friday, August 9, 2013 - 19:54
