Some churches are not churches at all... like the Salvation Army, which is an England-based organization that specializes in sucking American dollars out of the USA and into the pockets of their "officers" in England.

Well, Paul, now I suspect that you're just a shill for the publishers. You're not practicing full disclosure here and that could be construed as false and misleading advertising.

Had I bought this book based on your review and then later discovered that the author "can't imagine living anywhere else" because she loves it here, I would have felt deceived, cheated... flim-flammed by your review.

So, your argument that "not every piece of information fits in every piece of writing" is, in this particular case, a sorry and weak defense.

@28 -- I fully agree about the lack of sidewalks in certain neighborhoods. As a dedicated pedestrian, this just infuriates me to no end. It's as if they WANT you to buy a car and contribute to the local carbon footprint.

From yesterday's New York Times Books section comes a quote by the author about her present feelings toward Seattle:
[By the time she finished the first draft of the book], "I was starting to like a lot of things about Seattle,” she said. “The chill was melting and I realized I was growing out of this phase I was in. Now I love it here and I can’t imagine living anywhere else.”

Next time, try to interview the author, Paul.
