I assume I’m not the only one who loves Charles Mudede, as I assume the folks at the The Stranger keep don’t keep him on payroll out of sheer altruism. And it’s observations like this — in regards to the above-the-fold headline “Graffiti vandals cost public millions” in today’s Seattle Times — that only makes me love Charles more:
No, this is not really a problem for the public. It is a pseudo problem; a mere masking of the true problems the public faces. If The Seattle Times were not an ideological instrument for the interests of the ruling class, it would try to alarm us with this headline: Bankers Cost Public Billions.
Speaking of which, the Times’ Sunday circulation continues to slide, down another 5.2% from last year.
