Dear Seattle Metropolitan,

Yes, we devoted our cover and the majority of our issue this week to making fun of the way you look and write, but that doesn't mean we don't love you. There are a lot of nice things about you. You've run some really beautiful photos of Marya Sea Kaminski and "Awesome" recently. You employ Laura Cassidy, who's not only a nice person, but she makes delicious guacamole—or was it enchiladas? And, let's face it: Lists are a time-honored way to organize one's thoughts.
