RSS icon Comments on 6.9% of Seattleites Walk to and from Work. Here's What We Get to See


i'm a member of that 6.9% club (and also a member of the people-who-love-their-commute club). my work even gives me a free annual bus pass, and still i walk walk walk...
walking to/from work also got me into the street art scene in seattle. there are so many quality, thoughtful artists in town that put up some impressive work.
in my world, every day is the artwalk.

Take a digital pic of something on your artwalk and e-mail it to me (, and I'll post it.

Stacy: You are part of something that makes Seattle unique: a large percentage of us walk, ride bikes, and/or take transit to work. So what the government wants you to do is pay more sales tax. That is because in 1964 some money from the Federal Government went to Atlanta, and they paid for trains with that money.

You must now feel ashamed Stacy. You must VOTE YES for sales taxes - large sales taxes. It is because of the shame you feel now: vote YES in November for what the government wants.

Make the property owners in downtown Bellevue richer, by much. YES, YES!!!

I think it might be obvious. She's staring at the commuters in disbelief. They're walking home with their Jack In The Box to-go bags!

Arts staff, do you find absurd that Josh writes these drivel things about art? It would be pleasant if you wo/men would start writing more joke pieces on Josh's subjects. Like comment #1, everyday could be freaky friday, and much more enjoyable for us.

I'm glad 'stilletto' found my insults hilarious earlier today.
It's in the PI!

Protesters Untie!

It's not just art out there, but the occasional mad manifesto in the strangest locations. I spotted this one last year near the Buca di Beppo on SLU:

@7 - i know who wrote that - it's this insane woman who once came into the office i was working in (in ballard - the northwest flower and garden show, for what it's worth) and asked to fill out an applicaton to work at the show. we didn't have applications, so she asked for some plain paper. she then proceeded to sit down and write out the EXACT same (wo?)manifesto over the course of the next 30 mins.

when she was finished, she brought it to me and then launched into me about the same crap she had written down. thankfully i was saved by having to answer a phone after 4 mins or so of her ranting. i then took the 'resume' of hers around to the various coworkers, and we had many a laugh about it...
