  1. For me personally it's been a success. I buy through my state marketplace because my employer doesn't offer any coverage. I've bought individual plans both pre-ACA and post. Initially, I saw large increases in premium costs. Probably around 20%. The past three years, my premiums have been flat. My plan added child dental coverage and my deductible actually went down about $200 this year. I may be unique, though. I believe the price stabilization was a result of my state adding a reinsurance program. I could be wrong, but I thought that reinsurance aspect was part of the original ACA that the Republicans were able to strip out before ACA went live. That may have helped keep initial premiums relatively stable.
  2. K/P Kaare Vedvik to the Jets. Berrios, too.
  3. WR Brandon Zylstra to the Panthers;
  5. We did this for the first time with our a golden retriever about a year ago. It was much better for everyone involved. The service also gave us some mementos like a paw print and a hair clipping. I forget the name of the organization, but I thought it was national. We had a sheltie that was deathly afraid of the vet. They gave us a sedative that knocked her out at home, then brought her in for the procedure. That also wasn't terrible for her, though wouldn't work for a large dog like our retriever.
  6. Doesn't Russia own a considerable amount of oil and gas resources in Venezuela? Would they benefit from a regime change, or no?
  7. I thought Amazon was doing this. I'm too lazy to look, but I thought they are investing heavily in their own delivery service. Which includes drones :). Where they'll never be able to match USPS is in rural America.
  8. Good read:
  9. Well, this wouldn't be good.
  10. I've not heard good things about Cornell's wife. The MIL seems a bit unhinged, too.
  11. There was also the whole Stoner Rock thing happening fronted by Kyuss. QOTSA came a bit later, but were also great. There was also some great stuff on the east coast in the early 90s by bands like Prong and Helmet. The Toadies. Local H in Chicago in the mid to late 90s. And then a lot of the metal stuff folks like Sepultura, Slayer and Pantera were doing. And lets not forget Tool. Aenema was a masterpiece. Really a great time to be discovering music.
  12. My favorite story: Courtney Love accused Candlebox of being from LA. She said they just came up to Seattle to get signed. Those guys were actually probably the most Seattle band of anyone. They all went to school in Seattle. Nirvana was from Aberdeen/DC, Screaming Trees from Ellenberg, Cornell was the only guy who grew up in Seattle from Soundgarden. Vedder was from San Diego via Chicago, I think. I think Cantrell was from Oklahoma.
  13. It was also after playing Unforgiven. So maybe he was just (stupidly) tying it to the song?
  14. Yeah. I watched a Hyde Park video a while back. I recall them closing with Slaves and Bulldozers and In My Time of Dying. I think that was from 2012. I think the lack of a suicide note (though I guess I don't know what he actually said to his wife on the phone, maybe that was it) the idea that Ativan led to this makes sense. It's pretty consistent with everything - being in a fog at the show, taking two more when he came back and killing himself pretty much immediately after that. By the way, I'm nearly done with this book: Just a phenomenal oral history of the Seattle scene by the people in it. Someone here needs to write one of these for @Evilgrin 72.
  15. Agreed. His story is just such a fascinating one. High school dropout starts a band that creates a movement that changes the face of rock music. And yet, somehow he's the same old rock cliche to a large degree. The capitalist machine chewed him up and spit him out.
