Thank you, Jack, for giving so much to our veterans. You are a good American, and your donation ofRead More your team and knowledge is truly appreciated.

Former Major League Baseball commissioner Bart Giamatii used to say that the rules of the game ofRead More baseball are inviolable, that without rules the game becomes mere entertainment and ceases to be a true athletic contest. Rodriquez and the dozen other players who were suspended today knew the rules but went ahead and broke them. The punishment they received is not enough. If a player is caught gambling he is permanently expelled from the game. The same standard should be applied to those who use drugs as well. Major League Baseball missed an opportunity today to send a clear message that the rules in baseball are inviolable, and that the game is about athleticism and not chemistry.

What an opportunity for the golfing world to see what American Lake Veterans Golf Course does forRead More our veterans and active duty soldiers. We are a "healing" course because of the therapy and rehab center, special carts for those missing arms and/or legs or with other medical issues (stroke, etc.), and the camaraderie of veterans getting together to hit a little white ball. Everyone out there is a volunteer helping with the many jobs needed to keep the golf course functioning.

MichaelRead More Slaybaugh of the Madigan Army Medical Center-based Warrior Transition Battalion, as well as Sgt.

Good stuff Dan. I'm good with whatever is the quickest way to get a team.

Crystal - it sounds like the Kings are not your favorite team. Just a hunch :)

I'm glad we didn't end up stealing another city's team, but that was never in danger of happeningRead More anyway because I know full damn well the NBA was never going to let it happen and was just using us to get a deal out of Sacramento.

I sure as hell wouldn't volunteer the LPD to the US Open. Hell we need officers on our city streets.Read More Who gives a damn about theUS OPEN. I sure as hell don't. The only ones that will benefit from it is UP. I say let them figure out the security. Just cause we are neighbors does not mean our police force should be donated. Or if they work, they should be paid according the there over time rate. Then off duty officers can benefit from it.

What a loser Chambers Bay is....always was....always will be. Don't believe it? Just take a look atRead More how much your sewer bills have increased since that turkey was built. This and more now from the same Pierce County Public Works that spent $3,400,000 to build a pedestrian bridge over two railroad tracks at Chambers Bay and $470,000 along with Ferries to pretty up the existing 2000 square foot Steilacoom ferry terminal which few people actually use. Go figure: sewer rate payers must be made of money and made to fleece. Now they want surrounding cities to pitch in and rescue this loser? No way.!

I'm with you Brent, except in one respect. Perhaps the Sonics would have stayed in Seattle ifRead More leadership, both Wasington State and Seattle, had generated a committed vision for a stadium. At the time, our local capacity for action was nil. Sacramento, today, has generated a serious, committed effort in an incredibly short time led by a mayor. Imagine that! So, noting that distinction, Howard, David, and even Clay, are kind of absolved. The threshold criterion in Stern's mind is the will to act on an arena. In that sense, he appears consistent. As for Howard, on one hand he appears to have had his one great imaginative idea when he opened the latte site. Hansen, on the other hand, is a creative generator. I still think a team will emerge, if not now, relatively soon, say within two years.

I am so pleased and appreciative of this terrific group, led by our wonderfully focused ChrisRead More Hansen-you are keeping our hearts, souls, and dreams alive for our future NBA Basketball Team!! We will persevere! No fear-even if it is a few years off-this may be just a warm up for the final steps necessary to bring our Sonics Home!!! They are coming! One of your biggest fan and supporter!!
