So, the Seattle march has officially ended. (And by officially, I mean I overheard the die-hard, “Buck Fush” stickered couple next to me sigh, “So, ready to go?”) Westlake Center has returned to, well, Westlake Center—home to fat bottomed shoppers. I have to say that on the whole I’m impressed. Westlake Center was packed. I’d guess 3,000 people. We’ll see what the cops say tomorrow.
The Veterans of Peace closed the event, emphasizing the need for young people interested in joining the service to get objective information as to what they are getting themselves into before enlisting.
Linda Averill, Socialist city council primary candidate, was spotted thanking Seattleites “for the 12,000 votes.”
