Slog PM: Advertising bulletproof vests downtown, anti-inflation law now a law, trees in Seattle enjoying legal profit


This weekend, no matter how you slice it, was just plain crazy. Weapons. Weapons. Weapons. people crouch, people cry, people bleed. non-stop. Can we expect more of this when Seattle and the region combine weak gun laws with global warming (not to mention poverty)? The heat with the heat? And we are now heading for another miserable period of 90 degree days. More hotheads. More brains fried. More nights where an argument almost immediately explodes into bullets everywhere. To make matters worse, I saw a digital advertisement for bulletproof vest in a building across from Nordstrom. Here we are. When will we fall cold, save us?

Breaking News out stranger Reporter Hannah Krieg: After a long, long saga, the City Council voted to authorize the Seattle Police Department to dig into its deep pockets and offer up to $30,000 in hiring bonuses to career changers and up to $7,500 to new recruits.

during the meeting, Council member Lisa Herbold added changes to end the program in December 2024 and not to include police officers who leave the SPD within two years of being reinstated. The naysayers liked the addition, but ultimately council members Kshama Sawant, Teresa Mosqueda and Tammy Morales voted no.

These three council members agreed that more police officers wouldn’t make Seattle safer – a goal that could be better achieved by funding alternative police services, housing and access to health care. Morales put it best: “Until we recognize the inequality and the impact of these policy choices on the very people we claim we want to protect, until we allocate our limited public resources in ways that can change the conditions.” who have problems leading to public safety, we will continue to turn our wheels on safety. I cannot in good conscience support the continued denial of other municipalities the resources they need to provide vital services to Seattle residents who need more than a badge and a gun to improve their communities.

The woman whose life ended between the steel wheels of a Link train and the platform at Mount Baker Station? It was an accident, pure and simple. On Sunday, as far as we know, Nicole Stephanie Lyons stumbled right into the end of everything there is. The block universe theory says it could exist in the past, but it certainly does not exist in the time period we are now citing. Footage from train and station cameras revealed the fact of the accident to investigators. Lyon was 39.

We allow that, but it doesn’t have to happen. Cars don’t have to drive fast in the city. We can control their speed. But the illusion of freedom sells these dangerous machines.

The trees of Seattle have won a major lawsuit. It turns out the Master Builders Association was their enemy. This group wanted to delay the implementation of rules to protect our trees. but Capitol Hill Seattle Blog The hearing examiner reportedly ruled against the builders’ association. However, please note that I think human density and trees can coexist. It is a false problem to insist that it is one way or the other. More trees. More buildings with people.

If you read the greatest novel by Anthony Trollope, The Eustace Diamonds, find a conspiracy that has a class of people called London Thieves as gravity. Only they could commit an identifiable crime in his 19th-century mystery. Well, do we have that in 21st century Seattle? A class of thieves specific to our town? If we do, I would identify them as the ones who stole the Easy Street Records van this weekend. Corresponding My Northwest: “The van was handed over to him [West Seattle business] by singer-songwriter and Seattle native Brandi Carlile: It was the first thing she bought when she first signed to Columbia Records in 2004.” This really is Seattle Thieves.

Enough of Trump and his missing passports and what do you have. Today America took a step in the right direction. The Anti-Inflation Act became the law of the country. Unfortunately, our dire situation needs huge steps of this kind to really make a difference.

is it happening now Will it happen tomorrow? Or did it happen yesterday. All we know for sure is that”every day now“The human population will surpass the eight billion mark. However, the prediction is that we still have about two billion to go before we reach our population peak. Much of the growth will, it is believed, take place in Africa.

Good night, Wolfgang Petersen.

Good nightLance Taylor.

Let’s finish PM with a classic by John Coltrane, “Giant Steps”. We desperately need them now in our increasingly doomed world.
