Ours is a click-based economy, that values the comment and traffic, no matter the content or context. I asked and they responded and hoping other media does too. I was told once by a journalist that there’s not enough staff to moderate, so hey turn the comments off on topics like this…
That active thread isn’t going to save an old-media business model.

This time is for family, friends, and colleagues to grieve over the loss of life on a Seattle street that seemed built by Seattle’s traffic-engineering experiment committee. It ran a bike lane where cars turn left onto i5.
When advocates and lobbyists tell us, “bikes are transportation,” I encourage you like me to ask them to put money where their mouths are, and build infrastructure that’ll better protect vulnerable users.
For more discussion about 2nd avenue, follow SeaBikeBlog and be careful out there. Seattle isn’t the ‘bike town,’ politicians say it is.
