by Stanley Godfrey The streets were anxious in Seattle on election day this year. Every bar, store, and house had the election on the TV as families and friends watched.

Parking Dilemma

Parking Dilemma

by Ethan Maclaren Why are people so bad at parking? I just don’t understand how it’s that difficult for people to park.

Author Michael Foster struggles beneath his tedious work load.

Does it home[work]

Homework is one of the many things that I hate and most likely you do to. I don’t like that  it’s just more school work that you did earlier in the day.

In Russ we trust?

Sixty one million dollars. That is how much guaranteed money Russell wilson will get, which is second highest in the NFL. Has Russell wilson earned his contract? Will he ever? My answer is no. The Seahawks are off to a fairly poor start. While this isn’t just Russell Wilson’s fault the majority of the blame goes on the offensive line. […]
