I think we need to swallow our shit, do the necessary thing, and get with a state income tax. Our revenue streams otherwise are property taxes and pot sales (which we’ve also massively fucked up at a state-level because some of those sales are getting slushed to earmarked coffers that are uncomfortably general about Read more

If I had billions of dollars I would just build affordable housing for all the struggling people in Seattle. It’s a band aid over a bullet hole but at least people have temporary relief from the elements. I would also double NIH or CDC or UNHCR funding or prevent the extinction of elephants. Read more

I hope you’re joking because that is The Last Judgement from The Sistine Chapel printed all over her dress with a layer of tulle over it.

While we’re talking about eyelids, do we know for sure that the baby doesn’t have a nictitating membrane? Maybe the father is a loris or seal.

My trainer is a sadist and I’m a masochist, apparently. But my brain is clearer and sharper and I’m bounding up the stairs like I did in my twenties so 🤷🏻‍♀️ Still chubby-ish, but that’s probably the tequila and bread, and I’m not giving those up.

I see where you’re coming from about the executive, although I disagree. I recall at the time that the ranks closed around the writer because Nick owned it as a failure in editorial judgement. They admitted that that piece shouldn’t have been published and to my mind they did interrogate the reasons why it was.

I was Read more

To jerk each other off in the comments about how much smarter/better they are than GMG staff, I guess? The visceral thrill of the hate-read?

Oh, bullshit. He bankrolled a suit intended to cause financial problems because Gawker was rude enough to out him as gay.

This. I worked for a multinational that did some LBOs on its own when acquiring overseas brownfields. The acquired companies ended up paying for themselves and then some. Read more

The short answer is yes. Actually the vast majority work, but some of the so-called “mega deals” (like Univision) involved such massive amounts of debt that there’s no margin for error. 10-plus times leverage is an insane load for any company to carry and the only way it will ever be repaid is substantial growth in Read more

There are tons of mid-market LBOs that go well enough. One private company that I worked with (around 100 employees), the founder wanted to exit so sold to a mid-market PE firm. They held for 8 years and then sold off to an industry competitor. Company did well under them and grew and the place stayed a pretty good Read more

Man this is tough to read. I really want the GMG team to be successful. I’ve been an avid reader for years, and while there are a lot of things to criticize I still read Deadspin, Jalopnik and Lifehacker religiously. They’re not perfect at their job but the first two are not as bro-y as the competition, while Read more
