    The Possibilities of a Neo-Lamarckian Urbanism
    Before there was Charles Darwin, there was French zoologist Jean-Baptiste Lamarck (1744-1829). His name is now attached to the idea of "inheritance of acquired characteristics." What this means is that an animal's experiences can be transmitted to its offspring.

    Seven Places in Seattle to Go When You Feel Lonely But Don't Want to Interact with Anyone
    It's winter in Seattle, you've watched every obscure police procedural Netflix has to offer, and now you're even beginning to smell like sadness. You're sick of yourself, and maybe you're sick of everyone else, too. That's okay! Every city offers tiny respites for people who suffer from both self-hatred and social anxiety, and Seattle is no different.

    Welcome to Seattle, New Person!
    Congrats on the new job, Deb. (Mind if I call you Deb?) Good for you for getting that signing bonus (God, I hope you have one) and moving to a city you've heard so much about. As a person who lived in Seattle for the last seven years, I have some thoughts about what Seattle is like to live in.

    Fifty Shades Freed Has It All: Seattle Skylines, Slut Shaming, Lessons on Human Anatomy, Rita Ora, and More!
    Our original plan was to get wasted and live-tweet Fifty Shades Freed for your (but mostly our) entertainment. Since it turned out that all press reviews were embargoed until today at noon, that plan went out the window and was replaced by Slack messaging each other during the movie with our to-the-second reactions.

It's Not Too Late to Write The Stranger in for Trump's Fake News Awards

It consists of a list of publications, each one vying for the title "2017 King of Fake News" (or, more accurately, "2017 KING OF FAKE NEWS").

    It's Not Too Late to Write The Stranger in for Trump's Fake News Awards
    This newspaper has never been a big one for journalism awards. Partly it's because the work we do here-if you can call it work (or even call us a "we")-is not the kind that is traditionally considered strictly journalistic by high-toned awards organizations.

Planning For Seattle Women's March 2.0

Where will we march? The march begins at Cal Anderson Park and ends at Seattle Center, with long stretches of Pine Street and 4th Ave in between. Here’s a map, courtesy of the organizers:

    Planning For Seattle Women's March 2.0
    Here we go again. Last year, more than 100,000 people marched from Judkins Park to Seattle Center the day after our racist chaos-monger president took the oath of office. Millions more took to the streets in other parts of the country (and the world). One year of chaos later, it's time to fill the streets again.

The Morning News: Amazon HQ2 Finds 20 Potential Suitors, There's a Lake in My Alley

I started here at 4th and Pine, just to the side of Abercrombie & Fitch. This fixture is bolted onto a small, covered ledge that might otherwise provide relief from the rain pic.twitter.com/2yhdjQ0ed1

Next I stopped by the Medical Dental building on 6th and Olive. The bus stop outside has these covered stops, but the benches are short and designed so they hang out from under the cover pic.twitter.com/20Sfn5ZBjr

Here is a bus stop on 4th and Pike, just across from the AT&T store. The only bench made for sitting isn't covered and has those edges to keep the surface from being uniform. I lost the pictures but under the awning are at least half a dozen leaning benches pic.twitter.com/B37xwGhdy4
