right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing
    Hearin lies the real heart of Washington State Republicans. Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.
  • Orbusmax
    inexhaustible Drudgery of NW conservative news
  • The Radio Equalizer
    prolific former Seattle KVI, KIRO talk host speaks authoritatively about radio.

Who needs the print fooderati? We discussed Spring Hill extensively before and after its opening -- Chef Fuller was kind enough to answer questions for several WSB updates during the year and a half that elapsed between the time we caught first wind of their impending plan and the night htey opened. Over here in West Seattle, folks are food fanatics -- we report on someplace new (other recent arrivals include Zippy's Burgers or Full Tilt Ice Cream), the joint gets mobbed by folks looking for a new taste thrill. Next up, if you are interested, Cafe Revo in September (we just ran an indepth preview). We don't personally review restaurants (we leave that up to the readers) but we did check out Spring Hill a couple weeks after they opened - I agree WRT the duck. The dessert we tried was the "chocolate cake" (not typically cakey) that all our readers had raved about.


Some men scale mountains.
Some men jump out of planes or go wingwalking.
Some men ride motorcycles without helmets.

Our Bla'M? He eats undercooked eggs and hamburger and fries cooked in beef grease!! What a guy!!

Sounds like an interesting place, Michael. I am always amazed at the combinations of food that they come up with...beets with pears would never occur to me.

It mostly sounded good...I won't eat veal, though. I know how those calves are raised. :(


Ditto on the veal, Sparky. My mom was raised on a Montana ranch and even she never ate the veal.

Almost had me on the beets,too, but after a moment or two my natural anti-beet genes re-took control and even with Bosch pears said no.

Everything else sounds wonderful.

How do you eat a 4' $15 hamburger? And the bill came to ...?

I can see how the wta has become the sa. Just kidding, wta! These fifteen course meals must be taking their toll...

Wonderful writing as usual.


I wonder who it is that trains these chefs: Tom or Eric. Are these chefs that come out of Douglas' kitchens the beneficiaries of his expertise or Eric's?

I have never been to a Tom Douglas eatery. I think I must have missed something good. Shall remedy that asap. I did watch him on Iron Chef and I was given one of his seafood books. And I have listened to his show. Seems like an ordinary sort of guy. I like that.

Man, am I a foodie-moron or what. I live in West Seattle and didn't even know about this place.

    • KIRO 710ESPN Seattle 710 KHz
      Games and sports-blabber
    • KIROFM 97.3
      Multi-format: news and nearly all local talk. This is where classic KIRO AM news talk radio went... hopefully, not to die. The home of Dave Ross & Luke Burbank, Dori Monson, Ron & Don, Frank Shiers, Bill Radke, Linda Thomas, Tony Miner and George Noory.
    • KUOW FM 94.9
      Seattle's foremost public radio news and talk.
    • KVI am 570 KHz
      Visit the burnt-out husk of one of the seminal right-wing talkers in all the land. Here's where once trilled the reactionary tones of Rush Limbaugh, John Carlson, Kirby Wilbur, Mike Siegel, Peter Weissbach, Floyd Brown, Dinky Donkey, and Bryan Suits. Now it's Top 40 hits from the '60's & '70's aimed at that diminishing crowd who still remembers them and can still hear.
    • KTTH am 770 KHz
      Right wing home of local, and a whole bunch of syndicated righties such as Glennn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Medved, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Lars Larsony, and for an hour a day: live & local David Boze.
    • KPTK am 1090 KHz
      Syndicated liberal talk. Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Ed Schultz, Randi Rhodes, Norman Goldman fill in the large hole to the left on Northwest radio dial.
    • KLFE AM 1590 kHz
      Syndicated right-wing 2nd stringers like Mark Levin, Bill Bennett, Mike Gallagher, Dennis Prager, Dennis Miller and Hugh Hewitt inhabit this timid-voiced neighbor honker for your radio enjoyment (unless you're behind something large like Costco).
    • KOMOAM
      News, traffic, Ken Schram and John Carlson.
    • Washington State Radio Stations
      Comprehensive list of every danged AM & FM station on the dial.
    • KKOL am 1300 KHz
      Once a rabid right-wing talker, except for Lou Dobbs, it's all business....
