Re: “Is it fair for teachers to attack the legislators' 11.2 percent salary increase?

My daughter has a Masters Degree in Education, with endorsements in mathematics and music. As a new teacher (middle school mathematics), she makes $42K per year -- in Redmond. Same as what teachers make in Eastern Washington. She works longer hours than you can imagine...lesson planning, responding to "helicopter" parents, and meeting the needs of her students. Something is very wrong with this picture. If we want quality education for our kids, then why are we paying teachers such low wages? If she could do it all over again, she would have studied computer science, and made $100K and worked fewer hours. Think about it....

Re: “Celebrate National Burger Day with the Better Burger Project

No. As usual, your staff is completely clueless. Noboby and I seriously mean no business owns the burger more than The Elk. No pretense, no bullshit. Get a real burger. Double Smash, no filter

Re: “Spokane sheriff: police militarization a "myth"

Hopefully in his presentation Sheriff Knezovich will provide supporting evidence for his assertion that, "With the results of actions taken by city of Baltimore, actions consistent with the UC Berkeley suggestions, which led to the burning of several buildings and the national guard being called out"; I suspect it was extracted hot and steaming from his posterior.

Sheriff Knezovich also strangely commits a rhetorical unforced error when he uses the term "war" in the context of our ongoing national dialog on police practices, and then acknowledges it as a misuse of the term. His entire response strikes a note of condescension and contempt. I hope Sheriff Knezovich's future interactions with the public are conducted more professionally.

Re: “Don Draper isn't Mad Men's main character any more. And that's a good thing

I was trying to find something I didn't get in the show and I saw this and it represents every person that gums up media about the show with objectively factitious and facetious articles and posts. I mean facetious very literally, it's almost funny to think people who have watched the show in its entirety think "man, don draper a shithead". I'm not surprised I'm the only person to comment on this. I'm sure everyone who accidentally reads the headline laughs or sits down and jacks off to their penis envy for a character in a story they can't understand or are too dense to try to appreciate it for things a goat could enjoy.

Re: “Don Draper isn't Mad Men's main character any more. And that's a good thing

I don't know why it's popular to vilify Don Draper. Of course he does bad things but it's painting a picture of a person who DOESN'T ACTUALLY EXIST. Even more offensive is to say that his story is played out in any way. There are so many questions about him that would be exciting without knowing anything about someone like Pete on the show. Peggy is essential and also a beautiful character but the show isn't solely about her and her story ends kind of heavy-handedly anyway which makes her trials seem less valid, not to say she isn't interesting and a huge part of the appeal of the show. It's a great story and there's not point to be the devil's advocate in saying otherwise.

Re: “Don Draper isn't Mad Men's main character any more. And that's a good thing

It's not a good thing. This is really annoying. People want to make him out to be a real person that is really doing all the shitty things he does. It's a character and a character in a beautiful story. The story revolves around him and he will always be the most dynamic character in the show. I hope no one believes the show would've been close to as successful as it has been without him. Also there are garammatical errors in this article.

Re: “Is it fair for teachers to attack the legislators' 11.2 percent salary increase?

Cost of living was really a pretty minor issue at this rally. It was mentioned, but much more of the focus was on holding the legislature accountable for not passing a budget to fund basic education in this state. Voters have passed measures on smaller class sizes twice. The legislature is in contempt of court for not passing a budget. At the same time, legislators require more and more standardized testing which takes classroom instruction time away. This COLA thing is a red herring. Focus on the real issues.

Re: “Is it fair for teachers to attack the legislators' 11.2 percent salary increase?

The competition for teaching jobs in District 81 is fierce. If teacher pay is too low, there would be no or far fewer applicants. Like it or not, basic economic principles refute the suggestion that their pay is too low. And suggesting that higher pay is an issue for students is shameless.

Re: “Not so fast: Document undermines mayor's case to pay for Davenport Grand cleanup

I'm confused as to how a 2003 property agreement between the city and the PFD can impact a much-later property transfer (the Cloninger property didn't come into the city's hands until 2008 or thereabouts.)

Re: “Not so fast: Document undermines mayor's case to pay for Davenport Grand cleanup

Looks like Walt bought that. With as many attorneys as he has available and the PDC had available not to mention the City of Spokane's attorneys and counsel throughout the private offices, there is no way that Walt should have made it this far without knowing it was his bill.

Condon is just trying to make a great deal a better deal for Walt at the City of Spokane taxpayers expense. Don't be scuzballs.

Re: “Rachel Dolezal explains why "Shorty can't breathe either" is problematic

I am Annie's ex sister -in-law, and I can assure you she is NOT racist. We have black family members we love. This about a man who can no longer breathe simply because he died at the hands of others! Please show your support for Annie by supporting her restaurant.

Seriously? That is it? Can someone just put Dave Mathews out of his misery. How many times can one person see the same show every summer?

Re: “KHQ's conspiracy-laden chemtrails story is false balance at its worst

Catherine, the change you see is the massive, massive, massive increase in air traffic. Since you were young the number of planes in the air has increased as much as 500%. Add to this the fact that they fly higher where it is colder and the engines are cleaner adding more moisture to the air and you get way, way, way more contrails. There is no such thing as chemtrails. If you are really curious as to what planes are flying above you, just look up plane tracking software. You can do it for free even. And planes fly over places where there are no airports. Planes fly from Washington state to North Dakota, they fly from Mexico to Canada. Why would you be worried that they are flying over your state too? As for rain following the trails, that is simple...the conditions in the atmosphere that cause lingering contrails is often found right before a rain storm comes through. It is actually super simple to explain.

Re: “Why canned laughter beats real laughter

canned laughter is ONLY annoying, either real laughs or NONE. It's painfully obvious and more distracting than anything...actually it's more annoying than anything. It's like someone pointing out that you control your breathing...all the time...you can't just relax and enjoy the show.

Re: “City Council preps for pot changes, tackles gender inequity and Hookerville returns

The Inlander came through East Central with a very unsavory picture of East Sprague as if ithe Inlander wasn't part of East Central all these years, but then to sugarcoat the "derogatory name for a part of town long plagued by prostitution" as not East Central doesn't change the position you took in the last year. The hooker signs drove the prostitutes of the main drag and didn't bring about any changes for thier safety. Today we had a car burn a brodie at Pittsburg and Pacific then straighten the car out burning all the way to Magnolia. Our Spokane City offiicials have absolutely no intent of solving issues in East Central. I personally almost had 3 cars wiped out and in 3+ hours we could not get a police response. Screw off Straub, Condon, Issleris and the Council. My attorney will be contacting you shortly on the illegal arrest and I will not sign a nondisclosure.
