I’ve no idea whether or not I agree with this Seattle Times editorial, because I just can’t get past this sentence:
After a hard-fought compromise that took months to broker, Mayor Ed Murray announced a compromise last summer.
Do you mean he announced a different compromise than the hard-fought one that took months to broker, or does somebody need to buy you a goddamn thesaurus? Jesus… doesn’t anybody edit the editors?
But you know who wouldn’t write a crappy sentence like this? Paul Constant! And great news for you, Seattle Times, he’s available, now that he’s the latest in a string of talented writers (and me!) to leave The Stranger over the past year.
Sad to announce that I'm no longer employed by The Stranger. Happy to announce that I'm now looking for work.

So quick, hire Paul and give him a column before you print another sucky sentence like that again.
UPDATE: And by the way, Stranger, really? You couldn’t give Paul a goodbye post? I don’t know anybody who has written there who wasn’t grateful for the opportunity, but the way you just disappear us without comment is, well, childish. Paul deserved better than that.
