Another day, another post on my new Salem Political Snark blog: "City of Salem officials acting stupid on earthquake safety." It starts out with...
Gosh, maybe this is too radical an idea for Salem's Mayor and City Council, but it sure seems like a "Public Safety" bond voters will be asked to approve in the November election should actually keep the public safe -- rather than being a massive waste of taxpayer money to build an overpriced Police Palace.
A few years ago our sometimes-wise City officials recognized a scary truth: City Hall and the Library are almost surely going to collapse when the next massive Cascadia subduction zone earthquake, a.k.a. the Big One, strikes.

It's enjoyable, getting in touch with my Inner Snark. My first Salem Political Snark post was appropriately criticized by a few people as not being sufficiently snarky.
I have to agree. I'm such a laid-back, gentle, thoughtful, kind-hearted person (oh, forgot to mention "humble"), it's going to take a little while to get in touch with the snarkness that lies mostly dormant within me.
But with the grace of The Great Snark -- may She be forever ridiculed -- I shall rise to the snarky occasion.
