These protests really hit them. Lester black
You’re scared Durkan: Since all the creepy protesters took to the streets last summer, Mayor Jenny Durkan has taken threats very seriously 24/7 security for over a year. Rich wrote about the cops guarding your home in January if you’re curious.
After this new piece until Seattle Times, since 2017, Durkan has received five different death threats. Sometime after the first protest, which happened at their house in the summer of 2020, some Durkan haters left graffiti that read “Guillotine Jenny” and “Resign Bitch”. Apparently, she took the threats to heart – she said she was friends with Thomas Wales, a prosecutor who was shot dead at home in 2001 – but she didn’t take advice from the Resign Bitch day.
Road conditions: If you go to work in the morning (don’t worry, I don’t Charles or Matt, I’m not going to shame you too much for driving hahaha) Seattle traffic superstar Tracy Taylor has a very informative and millennial tweet for you. I personally love it. It’s avant-garde.
Snow micron: Yesterday I, the genius that I am, the inventor of journalism myself, wrote about all the things the snow has screwed up for people who depend on public services. The district has closed most of the test sites and canceled around 1,000 appointments during a record-breaking climb when the people return from the holiday gatherings. Today that trend continues with these closings.
Due to current weather conditions, many COVID-19 test sites will be closed on Tuesday, December 28th.
The Angle Lake and Renton locations are open but have reduced hours. The Auburn site will only be open by appointment.
Here in Seattle: You will find that the COVID test difficult to come by. Most curative walk-up spots are booked until next week. Yes. Do you know a good place to find rapid home tests? Send us the shovel.
To cancel the culture getting out of hand: In the same way, KIRO 7 published this nice resource about what’s canceled today. The district still only operates 60 core bus routes. North and South Seattle College are closed but are working remotely today. One thing we never get back after COVID-19 is a real snow day. Love working remotely, but sometimes all you need to do is relax when it’s too snowy to go anywhere.
Also the planes: The snow also grounded planes at Sea-Tac. KOMO reported on Monday that on what is expected to be the busiest travel day of the year, 277 flights were canceled in bad weather and 454 flights at Sea-Tac were delayed.
The flight attendants call CDC: Yesterday the CDC threw up its hands and said, âYou know what? Five days of isolation sounds good. âThe airlines were happy – they had campaigned for a shorter isolation period amid thousands of canceled flights. But Sara Nelson – not that Sara Nelson, president of the Association of Flight Attendants, argued the new guideline corresponds to the needs of the company rather than ensuring the safety of the public.
Cloth masks are like this last season: Okay kids, we’re in trouble when it comes to omicron transfer. Health professionals want you to take off the cloth masks and get a large boys mask. and Make sure it’s a real one!
“But in view of the risk of infection from Omicron, experts say, it is urgently time to upgrade to an N95 or similar highly filtering respiratory protective device in indoor public spaces … ‘Cloth masks will not do it with Omicron.'” https://t.co/Z9eTKs5RRM

To further illustrate this:
ðThe coronavirus is in the air. Very airy. Even if you don’t see anyone, that doesn’t mean the aerosols aren’t in the air. CLOCKðº
â¡ï¸ You need high quality N95 / KN95 / KF94 / FFP2 / FFP3 masks.
It’s not just “don’t die”: Many of us have taken the stance that we can be riskier because COVID-19 is not going to kill us. I admit, sometimes when Governor Jay Inslee and Dr. Anthony Fauci tell me that I can go out and play, I go out and play and do very little risk assessments myself. But dying isn’t the only negative outcome from COVID-19. I saw a girl on Tik Tok who still hasn’t regained her normal sense of taste. Crap. A new study found that even in people with asymptomatic or mild cases of COVID-19, the virus lingers and persists in almost every organ in the body, causing infection for months. If you just want to scare yourself a little, here’s the full story KIRO 7.
These effing schools, man: Okay, okay I know The unknown (namely, me, Hannah) has given you more than enough school content to chew on lately, but those damn schools, man! The fun never stops. According to Dahlia Bazzaz, this happens at the Seattle Times: A former Seattle Public Schools student said school administrators had kept him silent about alleged sexual misconduct in the locker room on the Garfield High School swim team. He is now demanding US $ 500,000 in damages from the district.
Speaking of schools: Despite the risk of the exceptionally contagious Omicron variant, Seattle Public Schools said they will be returning in person and on time on January 3 after the winter break. Some universities are more cautious. Western Washington University and the University of Washington are among the colleges that will go virtual for the first week after the winter vacation trips and celebrations. Seattle Pi has the story.
Why is nobody talking about it ??? the Seattle Times hasn’t broken it yet, Crosscut hasn’t given him the three thousand words it deserves, even our own Jas failed to record the news on Slog PM last night. The liberal media doesn’t want you to know that Twitter finally verified me.
