    Terrible! Seattle sure has a lot of violent crime. What is the mayor doing about it?

    Nothing, let hope Seattle does the right thing and vote for a new Mayor. The irony is that even though I"m on the right side of aisle, I would vote for Ed Murray if I could.

    Oh. Lord. People.

    Seattle's violent crime rate has been going down steadily for years but you'd never know it from all the scare-mongering.

    Voting for another mayor isn't going to make any substantial difference in the already decreasing crime rate, and using this woman's murder as a soapbox to air your political gripes is just tacky.

    It's real tacky getting killed after a SOUNDERS game in Pioneer Square, or shot on the bus or mugged in Belltown.

    Thee are different over the counter creams availanle and your doctor may even prescribe a cream.
    And finally, when acne gets treated, the subsequent dilemma is how prolonged would it just take for the acne red maris to go.
    Using aloe vera products will dearly help in treating acne problems and moreover they make the acne scars to vanish off.
