Slog PM: Omicron Spreads, Bears Become Fish Sticks, and RuPaul Welcomes Another Seattle Queen into Her Empire
by Thursday at 6:00 pm•
Good evening, we come to you from inside the world wide web, which unfortunately did not end today, despite the proclamation that our special palindromic day (12/02/2021) would bring about the long-awaited internet apocalypse. Y2K couldn't break the internet, Kim Kardashian couldn't break the internet, and what turned out to be a weird marketing campaign couldn't either. So it goes. Maybe one of the many upcoming palindromic days will save us.
INBOX: "I found that the end of the internet is either:
1) On the N 80th Ave overpass, or
2) Set to happen on December 2, 2021.
Either way, big news." pic.twitter.com/PKXlNam0Cl

Send in the mobile vaccination units. Gov. Inslee announced this afternoon that FEMA will send mobile vaccination units to western Washington to help the state's vaccination effort. There's only one unit with a location planned so far, at the Federal Way Performing Arts and Event Center, reports KIRO. It'll open December 20 and stay up for 30 days. More units are on their way; locations are TBD.
