Seattle City Council member Tom Rasmussen will debate Mayor Mike McGinn on the proposed deep-bore tunnel next week. The debate was wrangled by the folks at PubliCola. Good job, all.

Rasmussen says the discussion will be at Liberty on Capitol Hill. He declined to join the Town Hall forum last Wednesday because the screeching monkeys at The Stranger can't be trusted to ask questions, which was to be moderated by the Seattle Channel's CR Douglas, because he wasn't familiar with the state's definitive report. Since then, Rasmussen says, "I have had time to delve into it."
