Giltric: whidbey: *shrugs*

Good.  The biggest reason why shoreline should be publicly owned.

With access fees of course, to go into the general fund.

Yeah, if they drive there by car. Understandable.  So show up on a bike. Big deal.
Also,  the only reason we have access fees up here is because righties are too cheap to fund public land because socialism.

JohnAnnArbor: UsikFark: I love the guy calling his lawyer insurance agent at 1:20.

I can see the guy on the other end drawing a 60-degree line from the base and telling the asshole to step back about 50 feet.

"Not clear what caused the slide..."Normally it is water and clearcutting (to improve the view).  It is why passenger train service is out N of Seattle 10% of the winter -- mudslides in Mukilteo and Edmonds.  But it has been reasonably dry here for several weeks.This is a massive earth movement on the W side of Whidbey Island, N of the town of Greenbank.  I think that most of this land is glacial deposit, which often has rock/sand moving across sheets of clay on the way down the hill.

Giltric: Lets all dig deep to pay to relocate these poor fools who built their homes next to a cliff. They are just the procduct of the socio-economic background.

I feel the same about Whidbey and those located in lahar zones as I do about those located in flood planes and the idiots who built on top of the sea wall: fark 'em. You built your house in an area you knew was going to be a problem when nature got pissed, you deserve what you got.

Am I the only one who thinks it's kind of cool how lots of the trees in the landslide area are still standing? Like pulling a tablecloth off the table without knocking over the lamp?
