I actually thought they were innocent and pretty funny. I think we can all remember when saying "pub** hair" in public was rebellious. I can see why girls lined up to see him. He's dorky, cute and a total "guy". Ahem. I actually thought they were innocent and pretty funny. I think we can all remember when saying “pub** hair” in public was rebellious.

I am not sure. But it is a lot of huh?? is she for real? https://vine.co/v/OMDQn0MiZju https://vine.co/v/OhOn3mVepFU (she may not be actually in her 60's. I have no idea.) But yes, watching these things make me feel old... based on the reviews of this guy, I guess I will skip it.

Comment on Sound Transit light rail for West Seattle? Constantine, McDermott announce they’ll seek to get WS into ST’s updated plan by WS Since 66 http://westseattleblog.com/2014/10/sound-transit-light-rail-for-west-seattle-constantine-mcdermott-announce-theyll-seek-to-get-ws-into-sts-updated-plan/#comment-1666442 WS Since 66 Fri, 31 Oct 2014 15:47:02 +0000 http://westseattleblog.com/?p=290472#comment-1666442 West Seattle needs better transportation which should be part of a more regional tri-county plan. The people who live in the King-Snohomish-Pierce Counties should be fairly taxed for the transportation system. Why the people in the “outlying areas”? They add to the traffic congestion here inside the City limits. Just look at the freeways backed up in the mornings with people who live in the burbs coming into the City to work and for all the amenities that a metropolitan city offers. Then driving home to the burbs adding to the congestion. In conclusion, I always wonder, as I sit in traffic on the WS viaduct, just how many of those people voted against the monorail to kill it. Since it was scheduled to be completed in Nov of 2009, even with a year’s delay, we would have been enjoying our commute on the monorail instead of sitting in traffic. The voters, who voted to kill it, had great vision for the future of our transportation….NOT! West Seattle needs better transportation which should be part of a more regional tri-county plan.

The frustration is after years of being involved it comes down to the developers and their deep pockets…does anyone thing the density fits with the neighborhoods…the junction was to remain a anchor with developement not over 2 stories..does not appear that has occured…microhousing was never part of the plan..density is may need to occur but how you implement is the key ….clearly the plans developed over 10 years ago have not been adhered to …hardly provides confidence that going forward that will change
I am so sorry you find my comments offensive but I challenge your ignorance that my history is incorrect…Your comment is misguided

Because I can't fathom ANYONE who drives over that bridge every morning fighting this. It's a slow, dangerous madhouse! And before my transportation credibility gets dinged, let me add that I travel with a full Vanpool.

Miss the place bad but also will probably adopt a "Wait and see" approach. I've heard the promises before (legions of them) only to see them broken again and again. I was one of the biggest defenders of this place even up to the end, but this whole debacle has made me dubious to say the least VERY cautiously optimistic.

I am oh so excited! This past week has been not so favorable. Not being able to go to the gym has thrown my schedule & attitude way out of whack.

But unlike you I have been informed and aware of growth plans for the entire city for over 20 years. I paid attention. You do not give the impression that you knew about the GMA (I am betting you'll have to google that). Your ignorance of the community and its history you have lived in all your life is fairly offensive to those of us who pay attention. And TR. 20 years gives you native status.
