How tough is the economy? We wonder.
It is a hypothetical question designed to have no correct answer: What is your perfect day?
What do Washington D.C. and Washington state have in common?
We’ve always suspected some elected officials of having tunnel vision.
Barack Obama being sworn in as the 44th President of the United States on Jan. 20 is no doubt historic — breaking an invisible barrier of race as the nation’s first black president.
For almost three weeks now, I have been waking up each night from nightmares filled with armies, death, war crime, and terror, all with a focused purpose: destruction.
As I sat in a sea of brake lights, trapped in traffic on State Route 520, plenty of thoughts danced through my head as my frustration mounted.
I was at a convenience store the other day buying the usual — beef jerky and Mountain Dew — when I noticed the pen at the checkout counter.
This week, I must announce a momentous shift in the fabric of suburban culture.
With the legislature now meeting in Olympia, and Barack Obama preparing his Inaugural Address, now might be a good time to recall two epic misadventures that vividly illustrate how not to close deficits.

You can read about the weather in a newspaper. You can read about the weather online, and maybe watch a video or live weather-cam.
Last year, after one of this area’s odd and paralyzing snowstorms, I watched a very dumb guy in a very fancy SUV suddenly whip around the traffic in front of him and barrel at breakneck speed up an icy hill. The icy hill came out the victor, as icy hills are known to do.
Santa. Christmas Trees. Wreaths. Presents. Egg nog. A crackling fireplace. These are just some of the holiday traditions that transcend fashions and fads. They are joined by a collection of timeless holiday movies and songs, some of which have fascinating stories behind them, including the most enduring Christmas movie of all time: “It’s a Wonderful Life.”
