    Seattle City council is recommending a 75% increase in the budget for “comfort stations”? Seriously??

      What is wrong with that??? Do people just echo KOMO and think everything CC does is bad or what?

    There are a bunch of booths set up at the bee park in high point this evening.  Does anyone know what that is?
