This past Wednesday, Krist Novoselic wrote an opinion piece for the Seattle Times on politics: "THE fight in federal appeals court over Washington state's primary-election system is polarized around two principles. One argues for wider voter choice through a 'top-two' primary, while the other pulls for the right of free association by way of a Montana-style system of partisan ballots. These two important elements of our democratic experience - choice and free association - need not be mutually exclusive. Nor can we let this false dichotomy distract us from the challenges facing Washington elections. Just a small modification of the top-two system would alleviate the concerns of all parties involved. The change, to a ranked-choice ballot, would remove the constitutional problems created by Initiative 872, now before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, and ultimately build a quality democratic system that would invite increased participation."

Very interesting story from today's edition of The Daily World in Aberdeen, WA: "A crew of documentary filmmakers from Los Angeles has been in Aberdeen this week, shooting a documentary on the life of the late Kurt Cobain - one that will be narrated by Cobain himself. The producers are drawing on taped interviews the Nirvana frontman did with Michael Azerrad, author of the Nirvana biography 'Come As You Are.' Using Cobain's own voice to tell the story and focusing on the place where he grew up, director AJ Schnack said, is the filmmakers' way of making the Grunge rock star human again - instead of the untouchable icon his meteoric rise and tragic fall made him."
