  • There’s a protest wake for Metro Transit’s Ride Free Area (something that benefits everyone who ever goes downtown, as well as the destitute) on Friday the 28th.
  • There already was an Occupy ___ one-year anniversary march in Seattle, in which protesters raised “Get Money Out of Politics” banners. Look: The only fields money is “out of” are fields that people with money consider to be unimportant (including, alas, online journalism).
  • Knute Berger wants Seattle’s streets to stay “messy,” as in not completely grid-beholden. That kind of messy I like. The litter kind of messy, not so much.
  • The hedge fund tycoon who hosted Romney’s now infamous “47 percent” masses-bashing speech also hosts stuff that’s way cooler—private mansion group-sex parties. So what’s a guy that hip doing in the Romney camp? Oh yeah, the whole protecting-power-n’-privilege thang.
  • Also, there’s plenty of actual bad stuff about Romney. There’s absolutely no need to make up anti-Romney arguments out of misinformation, such as this piece that tries to connect him and his Mormon faith with the Fundamentalist Latter-Day Saints, an unaffiliated splinter sect. (The FLDS is the infamous polygamy cult where daughters were forced into harem marriages as kids.)
  • Anti-anarchist crackdowns continue to stretch the spirit, if not the letter, of the law.
