Re: “Fork

Food was reasonably priced, atmosphere was great.

Not everything I have had there is the greatest, but I have had great food there. I think the best is the Urban Burger... perhaps the best burger in town.

Re: “Minerva's Breakdown

Grrr. Whether a person decides to live it up or save it for marriage is entirely up to that person and no one else's business. Are there seriously still people trying to shore up their own self-esteem by shaming others about sex? People really still do that? "Trovada Whore"... How ridiculous. Just MYOB people, it isn't that hard.

Re: “UPDATE: CDHD Establishes Salmonella Info Line in Wake of Confirmation of Foodborne Illnesses

As to the 'sue local' sarcasm: Being a local business, the Co-Op should be offering to pay the medical bills for those people it harmed. Since they are local, and therefore should be looking out for their customers, they should be more than willing to pay for the damages to their customer's pocket books.

Re: “UPDATE: CDHD Establishes Salmonella Info Line in Wake of Confirmation of Foodborne Illnesses

I am all for suing any organization for failing to handle food preparation correctly. Why should the couple or their insurance pay for the medical expenses? The Co-Op paying for them is the consequence they rightly endure for neglecting safety.

Re: “Minerva's Breakdown

Odin. Yes, I read the question and the article, and I think it must have been clear that I had. After all, it isn't a long article. I just missed the line that said "Stick it out with your current job long enough to secure a new one". It is common to miss something once in a while. I hope you never do it though since people can be awfully snarky about it.

Re: “Minerva's Breakdown

I wonder if this person could search for a decent paying job while still employed with the slave master. I am not understanding why s/he must leave the current employer in order to seek a better gig.

Re: “UPDATE: City of Boise Continues Vetting Draft Ordinance, State Introduces Bill to Allow Uber Statewide

Uber wasn't pushed out by the Council. It chose to leave because it doesn't want to compete fairly, safely and with integrity. Good Riddance.

I used Uber extensively in San Francisco, and I really did enjoy the experience. However, people need to look past the ends of their noses at what things will look like once they have been around for, like, ten years.

Re: “NPR: Targeted Laws Turning Homelessness Into a Crime

I have long been opposed to panhandling, and I don't believe in donating to the homeless in that manner. I also think that begging causes a drag on prosperity in the areas in which it occurs, potentially creating new panhandlers. So, I don't think allowing panhandlers and public vagrancy is going to help anyone.

However, if a community cannot figure out how to help its homeless at the same time that it is passing such laws, that is unconscionable. Any laws like this should only be enforceable when alternative arrangements are unavailable. If there is no room at the shelter, the law should be 'on hold'. If the soup kitchens run out of food, or the rescue missions run out of basic supplies of clothing and other items, panhandling should be permitted.
