The Kids Ain’t All Right
ANOTHER DEMONSTRATION ON FEBRUARY 14, SAINT VALENTINE’S DAY
We had our successful protest at Westlake, got interviewed by Q13 Fox, but never heard a word from the Seattle Times, the Seattle Weekly, or the Stranger—so how come the Stranger is claiming responsibility for our demonstration?
That is TOTALLY FALSE. We’ve never heard of Reverend Buddy, but we’re pretty sure he was made up by the Stranger. Not only are they lying, they’re making fun of putting the SAINT back in Saint Valentine’s Day. And have you seen the issue that’s out right now? With “Saint Misbehavin’â€ť (which sounds of racist, don’t you think?) and scantily-clad people on the cover?
That’s exactly the kind of sexualization, commercialization, and shallowness that has taken the SAINT out of Saint Valentine’s Day. So we’re going to have another demonstration—this time on February 14, Saint Valentine’s Day, in front of the Stranger offices. Join us to show your displeasure with the Stranger’s mockery, its hyper-sexualization, and its selling out to commercial interests.
Dear C’YA: If you want to protest against us, grab a number and stand in line. As for our “claiming responsibility” for your weak little demonstration, we weren’t claiming responsibility, we were mocking your supremely misguided asses.
And by the way, Reverend Buddy ain’t the only fictional character we have here at The Stranger.
