    They also called 911 for help. They were a protest with the message being "defund the police".

    Isn't it ironic... dontcha think, Alanis? Your song, nothing ironic - this situation, rife with irony.

    Another thing to consider as well. In Seattle they have the "express lanes". They change north or south depending on time of day. So at times the exit ramp is the entrance and vise versa. Could this have been a mistake from that?

    They're welcome to everything west of the Sierras and the Cascades. It's already turned Communist.

    Depends on where he entered. I can't remember where the closest Express lane access is relative to that point. I think there's at least one in that mid-town area. The rest are further north and south of the tunnel. Maybe at NE Ravenna? Dunno. Someone local would have to tell us.

    I tend to stay in the north end of the greater Seattle area when we visit, and only pay enough attention to not get sidetracked on the wrong lanes off I5 when driving home (S/B).

    They're not just crazy, they're also not even remotely intelligent people. There is really something to that idea that those on the left substitute feelings for logic and rational thought.

    From the DU:
    This is after we knew the guy was a stone-cold sober, black, Ethiopian immigrant.

    The rest of it is mostly them going on about their personal racial stereotypes for black people. They got lots of irony at the DU.

    If you have the stomach for it, I suggest you read this thread on Twitter, if for no other reason than to see just how crazy these idiots are:

    This clown is actually arguing pronouns for the deceased.

    Thanks to idiots like him, we have directions on Pop Tart packages.

    That is awesome. :rofl:

    "When talking about this know Summer Taylor’s pronouns are they/them . . . people are being astoundingly cruel."
    In the midst of that argument, one of the lefties went too far and added a "#sayhername." He/She/They/Them/Xi/Latinx or whatever was then called down by a fellow lefty for the misconduct, "#sayhername is meant for BLACK WOMEN." :rofl:

    Literally the entire attempt to say something good about them is derailed by the debate on their "pronouns." (See, I said "their" for her, just like Kamala Harris, because I am PC and down with the movement and all . . . not down with English, obviously, but . . . .).

    It's hard telling how many people have died in these demonstrations. Never any body count on that, but plenty of COVID deaths each day. Our world is just plain ate-up!

    One of the black women even said something to the effect of "it's not about Summer's life, it's about the lives of black people whom she was serving".

    Wow.

    I hate Twitter. It has given the crazies and the fringe in our society free reign to move into the mainstream.

    Playing in the middle of the highway has always been a high risk activity. Most parents try to break their kids of this behavior at an early age.
