@13 But West Seattle should be more dense. It won't be more dense however, until it has better transit options.
We should certainly serve those areas too, but you don't just build a transit system for current needs, you have to anticipate future ones.
What we really need is the ability to decouple our urban needs, from regional ones. The current transit governance structure makes that impossible and holds us back.
But since Sound Transit needs our votes to pass a regional system, and Metro needs to keep Monroe happy, our local needs are held hostage. Keeping transit from people who want it, to force it on people who don't. Gotta love Metro and ST.

@20 I agree, but restaruants could do more to solicit feedback. Put out comment cards, publicize a feedback email, walk around and ask how everything was. Most don't.
Plus, I've found that most of the time I've complained, it has become obvious the problem starts at the top. You have a couple bad experiences bringing reasonable concerns to the manager and you just stop doing it.
