Settle does get cooler and cooler.

I like the sidewalks by the way.

Settle is getting cooler and cooler...

I like the new crosswalks.

I thought I should add this about the excellent human doing the cartwheels... Her name is Sara and she tells me: "I'm the cheerleader you just took a picture of in the crosswalk.Some background on our squad, in case you’re curious: CHEER Seattle (www.cheerseattle.org) is the newest member of the Pride Cheerleading Association that started 35 years ago in San Francisco. We cheer at a variety of events to raise money for organizations that support health and wellness in the LGBT community– this year our beneficiary is Camp Ten Trees. We’ll be towards the front of the Pride Parade this year – right between the Color Guard and the Rainbow City Band. We’re clearly so excited for Pride weekend!"

Can't wait to see what they look like covered in Jager-vomit - guess we'll find out this weekend.

I voted for the Christian crosswalks comment. I couldn't help myself.

I hate rainbows depicted by those harsh borderlines between the colors. Feels so segregated. Natural spectrums blend the colors wonderfully. Like Bono says, "All the colors will bleed into one." Actually Comte, blending all those colors might come close to the shade of Jager-vomit.

Where's the "Yaaaaaaaay, GAY!" option?
8
Where's the 'us clueless straights love teh gay!' button?
9
Where is the "Whatever, why can't Kelly O spell Seattle and mayor properly" option?
10
Where is the "Whatever, Pol Pot can't read the part where Kelly O. noted these were "exactly as they typed 'em" originally" option?
11
I was going to abstain, considering the dearth of correctly-spelled options. But considering how many surveyors are down here around Pioneer Square, recording exactly how many inches the Viaduct sank again today, I'm going to have to go with "Settle" after all.

That nice lady from CHEER Seattle must be one of the coolest people in this cool cool city.
13
I voted for the crosses crosswalk option because it was the dumbest thing I've read all day.

Only in Seattle do they pay $100,000 for something kids with chalk do in other places for free.

Go Seattle!

@6, that would look awesome and also be monumentally labor-intensive. Or does your local Home Depot sell spectrum paint alongside the plaid paint?
16
I fuckin' luv Settle! Our crosswalks needed some pop anyway.
17
I like the gal doing the cartwheel or what ever you call that cheerleader thing. Nice legs.
18
Settle's great. Next stop Talcoma.

This is #pinkwashing. Check out http://www.putarainbowonit.com to better understand why this is problematic.

Whoa, whoa, whoa! Everyone just seattle down. Settle is one of the best sitties in the lower 47 (sorry, Florida). I moved here from Bushwick (it's in New York, ya'll) and I have never once felt like I've had to compromise or seattle in any way. Settle rocks!

Sue the "Mayer"? You mean, this guy: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/e…

I voted for the crosswalk full of crosses, because that way some Christian dumbass would be able to take credit for people walking (and driving, and late at night probably pissing) all over his most sacred symbol.

@14:

Only you would suggest a "solution" that would last all of about five minutes on those busy intersections...
24
Nice crosswalks but the lack of sidewalks is the danger
25
@23 "Solution"? What kind of problem is rainbow crosswalks solving?

I don't have a problem with the rainbows, I take issue with the bill. $100k+ so that we can have rainbow crosswalks in Cap Hill? Seriously?! Ed couldn't think of anything else to do with that money? What about our pot-holed streets or poorly-funded schools? Naw ... we need rainbow crosswalks. UGH.

Shorter @25:

ZOMG! GUYS, THINGS COST MONEY, DID YOU KNOW THAT? I HAD NO IDEA! UNTIL WE SOLVE EVERY PROBLEM EVER, WE CAN'T BE SPENDING MONEY ON OTHER THINGS I DON'T PERSONALLY APPROVE OF!
27
Now everyone is happy and gay!!!! Piece of crap spending money so foolishly!!! Oh but wait its not his!! Make Seattle affordable!!!! Great start!!! What about upkeep????
