Politics Sims Is No Tunnel Supporter. He’s Into the Surface/Transit Option. Please Make a Note of It.

There’s a good article in yesterday’s PI that summarizes the “uncouth” factor I was getting at earlier this week when I made fun of Gov. Gregoire for her latest attempt to appear politically coherent about the viaduct.
But I do have a footnote complaint about the article. It has little to do with Gregoire. It has to do with the incorrigible mainstream press around here—that refuses to acknowledge the bigwig support for the surface/transit option.
The article says: “Of the group of tunnel supporters, including King County Executive Ron Sims…”
King County Exec Sims is one of the loudest advocates for checking out the third option, the surface/transit option. Certainly, I understand if the reporter goofed, but editors who have been editing article after article about the viaduct drama should know full well where Sims stands.
Yes, it was a toss-off line in the story. But in such a charged debate, it’s important to get the King County Exec’s position right. Please do.
