Sustainment of the constitutional right of individuals to keep and bear arms got all the publicity last week but there was another court decision on an equally controversial subject that affects every one of us. It wasn’t from the Supremes but the federal appeals court in the District of Columbia which turned down a petition from 17 states, including Washington, asking for a decision from the Bush Administration within 60 days on whether greenhouse gases and global warming are a threat to public health and welfare.

CSTOCK Kids for Kids' 'Pirates of Penzance' isn't your average kids show

  • Jul 12, 2008 at 12:00PM updated Jul 14, 2008 at 12:06PM

Johnny is forgetting his lines, while the director has to go on stage to remind Sally it’s her cue to come on. But this doesn’t seem to be the case for the Kids for Kids productions at CSTOCK, directed by Daniel Estes.

It’s been a busy and interesting couple of weeks to be a Seattle sports fan. From welcome departures (like the M’s Thursday cut of first baseman Richie Sexson) to departures that weren’t (take a guess), from improved performances (the M’s are no longer the worst team in baseball!) to careers that might be ending (Shaun who?), Seattle sports fans have watched a turbulent, if not manic, series of events unfold.
