What breaks my heart is not development but the loss of the tangible things that made Capitol Hill a magic place to live: 15th St Video and Harvard Exit.

Since Ellen Forney performed this piece with an almost identical script at Town Hall recently it is hard not to suspect a little possibly inadvertent plagiarism.

Pioneer Square is a beautiful and interesting area with many great places to eat and great galleries, and it has become unpleasant to visit because of the smell and presence of human waste and hundreds of homeless people, leading to the closing down of several of these places. It is a tragedy that these people are there and living in the situation that they are, and there is much that should be done to mitigate that. But it is silly to pretend that it does not affect the life and feel of the neighborhood. Our family was thinking of moving down there, but we have kids, and after looking at a number of places and realizing what the vibe is day and night, it is just not tenable.

When my daughter, raised on Miyazaki, was two, she caught a sight of herself in the mirror in boots, her brother's striped pyjamas and a lambswool stringed hat, and said, "I look like a princess!".

Miyazaki movies. Full of interesting, tough, brave female characters. Cute too.
