And, if you were wondering, down below where I reply to a tweet about a post by Sarah Schacht about the budget bill over the weekend and how it appeared out nowhere? That post is simply brilliant. Sarah's exactly the right type of person we need blogging, her stuff certainly needs more attention.
And, my little snarky exchange with her is exactly the reason why I sometimes go overboard caring about how people use the term "Olympia." Christ almighty, Emmett, get some perspective. There are bigger fish to fry, you know?
- Arg @seattletimes "Olympia knew the lucrative rip-off was going on, and said nothing" and its because we don't like you #metonymy
- MLAS: Pension Games, Seeds of Revolt http://is.gd/iN0JY #WA #Olympia #tcot #taxpayers #publicsector #p2
emettoconnell: @mlas seeds of revolt just in Olympia or across the entire state of Washington? I'm confused #metonymy
SarahSchacht: @emmettoconnell I don't think you read my blog post; I documented a lack of public access to the budget bill, not transparency across WA.
emmettoconnell: @SarahSchacht I did, great post, I was replying to an earlier tweet of yours in which you used #Olympia in a metonymic fashion

emmettoconnell: @PNWLocalNews how about a hashtag for state politics that isn't about just one town? #metonymy
