Derek, you should embrace the diversity in your neighborhood. So many negative feelings to what is obviously a cultural misunderstanding. Those teens in the video are just acting out their emotions - they mimic what they've seen on their popular hip-hop music videos. I'm sure when they're done horsin' around, they'll volunteer to clean up their neighborhood.

Well then #5 - I guess you'll just about take anything won't you? At least it's not trapped behind your computer monitor right?

#3 - "the noise is unbelievable" ?!? You have to be joking, right? I live less than a block away from MLK near the the Orcas intersection and the train isn't any louder than regular traffic. Maybe you're confusing the train with the constant stream of emergency vehicles headed towards Rainier Beach where your friend lives.

@19 - Some people like to go to restaurants to sit down to eat, street food is just that, STREET food. It doesn't compete with a sit-down restaurant because it's OUTSIDE. You don't happen to own Smarty Pants down in Georgetown do you? Because that jackass seemed to have the same problem with the falafel truck that was operating near his establishment. And guess what - the street vendor also pays taxes. Fuck, I hate the idiots in Seattle.
