Outstanding, another chance to demonstrate how much we all hate each other!

Remember, kids, no shooting each other!
We’re trying to socialize with the neighbors’ dog babies.

This is great- thanks for getting the word out. This has always been great fun getting out with our neighbors.

Good idea. Although these to me are much like school events needing chaperones; it’s ALWAYS the same people. Just look around. What are we then proving today? That the neighbors still have good biscuits and a cool dog? I’d like to request $5K for a few things myself. With modern communications and uber-busy lifestyles, do we really need the city spending our $$ for these silly things? Fixing potholes and quite a few ancient intersections would be $$ better spent.

No, Scott. Believe it or not, there’s some value in building community.

I’m sorry that you’re too busy to share 1/1095 of your annual meals with the people living a few feet away from you.

Households change and it’s good to meet all the new neighbors moving in. The lady on my corner has great biscuits, thank you.

Fun fact: My long-gone elderly neighbors said that years ago (60’s or 70’s?) there would be block parties on different blocks every week and everyone in the community would be invited. The way they described it sounded more like a drunk-fest, but fun nonetheless.

What a sad life you must live if the thought of socializing with your neighbors triggers you.

Ah good, anything to pretend we’re doing anything about public safety.

“SEATTLE – A homeless man was arrested after police say he attacked a tourist in Seattle and tried to strangle him with a rope.

According to the police report, the tourist was visiting from Arizona earlier this month. He was on the way to visit the Space Needle with his family.”

Hello.

This article is about neighborhoods registering for ‘Night Out’ funding.

Your comment is about an alleged assault in downtown Seattle.

Why give the community groups $5,000 when if there are community organizers they can do it within the community? We don’t need to allocate that kind of money to block party type events – just get together, or as an infamous arrestee said: ‘why can’t we just get along’, or something like that.
