Re: “Game Over, Monopoly

Interesting. Both articles show some cool growth for Spokane. I am sad that they have to destroy the old building though. I wonder why they could not make it work. It looks much nicer then the new convention center hotel/parking lot monstrosity.

Re: “Promise Keepers?

I am fine with the change. I do believe that they believed they were being honest with voters last November.

Re: “Snag hit in mystery retailer deal

I am not understanding the issue. Does someone else understand what the problem is?

Re: “Court documents reveal new details in attack on transgender woman

It is rather simple, every single human begins life as a female in the womb. Around 6 weeks after insemination is when the sex begins to be formed for the human. Sometimes the transition to male does not go correctly as we are maturing before birth. The fact that people are not always just male or female is science just as much as some men are attracted to men and some women are attracted to women. Some people have chemicals that make them feel like they are the other sex then the one they were raised as. It is amazing how our sex is little more then hormones. Actually a HUGE number, a lot more then I would have expected(1 in 2000), of people are born with both or partially both male and female sex organs. The doctors and parents decide the infant's fate. These are facts of our world. There are many reasons for people to be transgendered. I have known personally quite a few transgendered people and their lives are incredibly harsh due to societal pressures. Imagine having 3 grown children, a loving wife and being in your middle 50s when you finally understand the reason why you have never felt right your whole life is because you are actually a woman in a man's body.

We are going to find that transgendered is a lot more common then we expect because life is not black and white. Humans evolve/grow in many different ways and transgendered is one option for humans as they grow up. All we can do is have compassion for this decision for people to be themselves. It may look different to us, but it is not our right to push our own beliefs on others. If you are willing to push you own comfort zone a bit, watch this inspirational video of a former US Marine who transitioned to being a woman. It is incredible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6HaVYg6kB…

I am lucky to have a rather boring life where I was born as a male and I am attracted to women. I do not have to overcome much to live my life. I believe in time things such as a transgendered sex will become just a normal part of our society, just as we are beginning to become comfortable with homosexuals and lesbians now.

Re: “Court documents reveal new details in attack on transgender woman

It is so hard to get an accurate story when so many in the picture are intoxicated. I wish there was just a security camera that captured the whole incident. That would really help. I have heard that Scamahorn has a really long wrap sheet.

Re: “Local firefighter raises $96K on Kickstarter to fund new first responder axe

That is really cool! They are over $102k now! Way to go. I don't understand why this has not been created before. It seems like something they should have had for years by now. It is the fireman's Swiss Army Knife.
