For General Release: In response to the City of Tacoma billing the military for law enforcement during anti-war protests a Tacoma native, the blogger known as The Opinionator, has renounced his ties to the city. The Opinionator was quoted as saying that while he left the area as a young child, he was never in love with Tacoma's smell known, famously as the "Tacoma Aroma". The Opinionator was given no response when he asked why the antiwar protesters were not charged a permit fee to cover the additional costs the City incurred due to the protest. According to some sources he was overheard calling Tacoma Mayor Bill Baarsma a "douchebag". When asked about this, The Opinionator had no comment.
