Comment on WEST MARGINAL WAY: New proposed design for bike lane, as decision looms by Jort https://westseattleblog.com/2021/06/west-marginal-way-new-proposed-design-for-bike-lane-as-decision-looms/#comment-2343016 Wed, 23 Jun 2021 19:51:37 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=1008621#comment-2343016 In reply to KA.

Nope, they just recognize, like every city in the world has to also, at some point, that there is no possible way to grow a city AND move everybody with cars. No city in the entire recorded history of human civilization has “solved” traffic congestion by building more car infrastructure, and Seattle will not be the first. You will adapt, and so will all of us, because that’s how it’s gone in cities all over the world and Seattle isn’t going to be any different. Make your mental adaptations now and either get a bike or get on the bus. Throw your car away.

Comment on WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Police search in The Junction by Jort https://westseattleblog.com/2021/06/west-seattle-crime-watch-police-search-in-the-junction-2/#comment-2343014 Wed, 23 Jun 2021 19:45:37 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=1008717#comment-2343014 In reply to StopCuttingDownTrees.

Firing random bullets into a densely-populated area does not, actually, make you a “victim.” It makes you a criminal, and you should go to jail. Guns are not to be used to “shoot out tires” of cars, no matter how much your feelings are hurt that your car was stolen. Time for jail.

Comment on Stay Healthy Streets, missing sidewalks, and more @ transportation-advocacy coalition’s forum for Seattle Mayor candidates by Jort https://westseattleblog.com/2021/06/stay-healthy-streets-missing-sidewalks-and-more-transportation-advocacy-coalitions-forum-for-seattle-mayor-candidates/#comment-2343012 Wed, 23 Jun 2021 19:32:15 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=1008571#comment-2343012 In reply to Ivan Weiss.

Perhaps that’s why you supported Bob “I Will Literally Kill Light Rail to West Seattle” Hasegawa for mayor, when he proposed eliminated the MVET because he doesn’t like funding public transportation.

Comment on WEST SEATTLE WEATHER: Heat alert for later this week by anonyme https://westseattleblog.com/2021/06/west-seattle-weather-heat-alert-for-later-this-week/#comment-2343007 Wed, 23 Jun 2021 18:59:17 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=1009137#comment-2343007 Blistering heat with nary a drop of rain between now and the Fourth of July.  Add in the usual pyro-morons, and you have a recipe for disaster.  With no enforcement in sight, and many of these pillocks believing that having had a tough year justifies even more outrageous, illegal behavior than usual, this could be really, really bad.

Comment on WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Business burglarized, again by cjboffoli https://westseattleblog.com/2021/06/west-seattle-crime-watch-business-burglarized-again/#comment-2343005 Wed, 23 Jun 2021 18:22:18 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=1009184#comment-2343005 I wonder if the owners (or their landlords) have considered 3M security films. A clear polymer film can be applied to the inside of the window that holds the glass in place when it shatters. Burglars can still break the glass. But the shattered glass stays in place and requires a lot more time, trouble (and noise) to get through it.  Might be worth considering.

They built the shell almost 2 months ago then nothing. 2 guys came @ 5 weeks ago and pressure washed the building and left. I did catch one of the workers and asked when it would be finished. He said “soon, i hope” NO work done since.
