THE OLD BRIDGE AND THE V. Speedy Siegl Racing’s Ducati 900SS Racer

Written by Martin Hodgson For a brief but magical time in music history the Seattle Sound dominated the airwaves and shaped a generation. Now another of the cities institutions has crumbled and gone, the equally mystical and murky Alaskan Way Viaduct. But now a new creative force is flourishing in the North West and it’s the music of classic air-cooled engines that permeates the side streets and freeways. Part of that revival is Speedy Siegl Racing and they snuck into the earthquake damaged V...

#WheresMitch: McConnell Disappears Into The Background Of Shutdown

WASHINGTON (AP) — One of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s guiding principles is: “There’s no education in the second kick of a mule.” Now, deep into a government shutdown he cautioned President Donald Trump against, McConnell is not about to let himself be kicked again. The Republican leader has been conspicuously deferential to Trump since the shutdown began. He’s waiting on the president and Democrats to make a deal to end it. The result is an unusually inactive profile for the GOP ...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is looking for Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, whose priority, rather than reopening the government, is an anti-abortion bill that would disproportionately affect lower-income women. At least it's on-b...

Maple Leafs’ Tavares: 300-Goal Scorer

John Tavares not only helped win the game for the Toronto Maple Leafs, he also entertained Toronto hockey fans by scoring his 300th and 301st goals as the Maple Leafs beat the New Jersey Devils in New Jersey. The only downside was that he set his record on the road, and I am certain that Devils fans were not nearly as celebratory as Maple Leaf fans would have been had the game been at the Scotiabank Arena. Other Maple Leafs who have scored 300 goals include Mats Sundin (420 goals), Darryl ...
