Nice article, thanks Dominic, however, please don't plan on any real action. Here in Spokane we have the same blue wall (crosses sheriff and police), and the same issues, and "escalated" public situatations have the same outcome, meaning the police are always right and the citizens just get in the way.
You are nothing, and don't forget it. At least you had a forum. Most complaints are relegated to the shit bin.

"Sky-rat that eats garbage". Why are you suddenly saying nice things about Ms. Bachmann?

China will get the coal and burn it as fast as they can. They are one of the world leaders in not giving a fuck about pretty much anything, like, I don't know, the environment. They really get pissed when something gets in the way of it's manufacturing and selling to America, so it should be assumed money and power from both countries will prevail, as it usually does.
Sorry to sound so gloomy.

This message is purly selfish, and I mean no disrespect to Seattlites that give a damn about their city, but..
I consider myself a humanitarian and nice guy. I'm one of those guys that hands out a few bucks, a sandwich, or a blanket to the dude at a corner in a wheelechair and cardboard sign, but I have a question....
As an "East Sider" can you please tell me about how bad I'm going to get screwed? I'll guarantee the entire state will see the $20 car tab increase, not just the fine folks of King County for which this entire proposal benefits (again, only being selfish) and due to cause and effect, I will have less to help those who smile when I make the effort to help them.
Seriously, the east side of the Cascades gets some sort of rogering to "assist" the west side, usually for projects that have no particular use to the general public. I have paid for stadiums I don't frequent (that pesky general fund) and will get to fund a tunnel I have no use for, or quite possibly will never, ever pass through.
So if you can help me understand, I will start a petition that those of us "over here" get our much earned "reach around", smile, and take what we will eventually have to live with.
PS: I love Seattle, you are truly the nicest I have ever met. See you at Bumbershoot.

Sorry Anonymous, you really should be telling this to a shrink instead of sharing with the fine readers of the Stranger because did you honestly think you would get sympathy for allowing a hustler to get over on you? A hustler?! You have the ability to stop the madness, but apparently not the desire so either shut up and make a decision to take what you have coming to you or fix the situation.
That's just me, though.
