    About “Amazon Is Killing My Sex Life”: For somebody who’s annoyed by the narrowness of the geeks who’ve “taken over” her city, it’s odd how the author describes her romantic life entirely in terms of job descriptions and credentials, or at least categories. I mean, I agree with her overall: I work in the software trade, and it **is** stuffed to the gills with self-important punks mouthing jargon. But I looked in vain for any indication that the author might deign to date, say, a skilled-trades guy. Surely there must still be at least **one** of those in the greater Seattle area who can carry a decent conversation.
