COURT CASE: South Park murder suspect Isaiah Kalebu is expected in King County Superior Court at 8:30 this morning to answer charges including aggravated murder (which could bring the death penalty) in the July xx attack on two women who were asleep in their home when he allegedly broke in.

CLOSED SCHOOLS’ FUTURE: Also happening downtown this morning (9 am), the city Hearing Examiner is scheduled to hear an appeal of the June city decision determining that closed school campuses around the city – including Fairmount Park, Genesee Hill and EC Hughes in West Seattle – could be repurposed for various new uses without convening a School Use Advisory Committee.

PORTERHOUSE OPENING: The new restaurant/pub in the Admiral District (2329 California SW, just north of Admiral Theater) opens mid-afternoon. Lots of new food and beverage details in the West Seattle-headquartered Washington Beer Blog‘s review from the “soft opening” party Monday.

REP. MCDERMOTT TALKS HEALTH-CARE REFORM: Tonight, the long-hot topic gets its highest-profile West Seattle discussion yet, as the 34th District Democrats bring in Seattle’s Congressmember Jim McDermott in addition to other expert panelists. The agenda’s here, but also note the disclaimer on the group’s home page – this is NOT a “town hall meeting” and while everyone’s welcome to attend and listen, “only members may speak and participate,” per the group’s bylaws. The meeting starts at 7 pm, The Hall at Fauntleroy.


  1. Yup, the 34th Democrats can nod their heads right along with old “Baghdad” Jim McDermott as he feeds them the lies, distortions of DNC talking points while hiding the facts and nauseating numbers behind HR 3200. I hope there are a few Blue Dogs in the crowd brave enough and smart enough to speak out about Obama’s medicine show to Seattle’s most corrupt and cowardly politician.

  2. This kind of discourse is what’s “nauseating.”
    Thank you OP for being part of the problem.

  3. Sure, Michael, Sure.

    Baghdad Jim is a disgrace to this city and state. He is a laughingstock, as are the moonbat liberals who keep voting for him.

    Thank you OP for being part of the problem.

    And how civilized were you and liberals in general during the Bush years? Or would you like me to remind you of the disrespectful, childish, vindictive, mindless and even barbaric things said from 2001-1.20.09. Didn’t think so….
