    At the very least it will be nice to have a viable alternative to use as leverage when telling Comcast they need to lower my bill or lose my business. Thanks CLink!

    I have used both Burien and downtown Honda for service for the last 10+ years. Burien used to be great but since they changed owners, they have gone downhill and, based on some recommended work that turned out to be completely unnecessary, and the fact that the service manager couldn’t look me in the eye while he tried to explain it, I no longer trust them and now take my vehicles either to Honda downtown or to Tom’s Automotive. In addition, just last month a family member took their Honda to Burien to have a squeaky wheel checked out. They determined the problem and said it would be ~$800 to fix. My family member approved that and said, “oh yeah, I have a 15% off coupon too.” They went ahead and started the work and – surprise surprise – they found an additional item to be repaired that just happened to roughly equal the 15% savings so she still paid $800 + tax. She didn’t push the issue and went ahead and got the work done but that was the last straw for me, zero trust in those guys at this point. Stay away!

    Try Big 5 Sporting Goods in Westwood Village: 932-2212.

    Sometimes Target has them too but usually a very limited number, only one or two styles, limited sizes.

    We get Thaitan quite often and can vouch for swimming rama, panang curry, pineapple curry, pad thai, spring rolls. All very good, love Thaitan!

    Danny, curious which Honda dealer you are talking about? If it’s Burien Honda, they recently had an ownership change. I’ve been going there for routine maintenance for years and always felt like I got good, honest service. BUT I was there two weeks ago for an oil change and noticed some different folks in the service department, and I’m not sure the changes are for the better…

    JayDee, the identity of the Viewpoint Vigilante is well known. Several people have witnessed prior destructive episodes firsthand. Prior attempts at “diplomatic relations” have been rebuffed, and, as evidenced by recent actions, seem to have been completely ineffective.

    JanS, like GW said, “we can’t let the terrorists win.” And yes, it is public property.

    Bench is now disassembled/broken up, placed in the trunk of a blue Honda Civic and is probably headed for the dump. Sigh…

    Guess what? Bench has already been taken. Lasted maybe an hour. Thinking of starting a fundraiser for a nice 15’x3’x3′ piece of granite…

    I’ve shopped at this Safeway for years without any problems – I’m curious to learn more details on the item in question and exactly what the manager’s rationale for denial might have been. Can you provide more background info socamr?

    Unbelievable. Destroyed in broad daylight? The police (and maybe the city?) should be notified of such brazen vandalism. And isn’t that city property? Pretty sure that is the case since the stairs and adjoining property are all where the street would be were it not a dead-end…
