    Had to look it up, I’m not familiar with the newer models.
    I like it, singles are simple, affordable and very reliable. Pretty hard to beat.
    I have the opposite end of the spectrum in the garage, a ’96 Harley bagger and a
    ’99 Ducati 996. Last time it was in the shop, the Duck was $600 just to check the valve clearance. I have grown to appreciate simplicity!

    I liked Ender’s Game too. Currently wading through some of Tom Clancy’s books, but tend toward sci-fi. Vernor Vinge is good, but I’ve read so much over the winter I can’t remember them all.
    Glad to hear that some of us still read instead of spending all of our time in front of the TV. Kind of restores your faith in your fellow man.

    If memory serves, voters weren’t given the option to replace the viaduct.
    High powered property owners just east of it wanted it gone so their property values would increase. To McGinn’s credit, he fought the tunnel, but was far outgunned, and Gregoire ensured that Seattle was on the hook for any overruns.
    I believe we are screwed.
