Seattle PI just too damn squishy for me

And what I mean by that is that when I read it there's no resistence, nothing that would seriously contradict my worldview and challenge me by either making me mad or stop in a thoughtful pose. I find that reading more popular sources of news provides the stone for me to push against. Seattle PI, New York Times, more like news aggregators that have stories from ABC and CBS on them. This was one of the problems with living in Olympia. Plenty of progressive stuff going on, but after a certain point you're pretty much preaching to the choir constantly. Seattle is better on that score, but reminding ones self of what portions of the rest of the country are thinking is becoming a necessary way for me to guide myself in an effort to make meaning out of current events.
