Jeff Kirby makes a good point about taffy, but I think the best part of Brendan Kiley’s Seattle Center story is where he advocates for a brutal beating/rape as just the thing to get people excited about the Seattle Center:
New York’s Conservancy formed in 1980, but only got off the ground years later when muggings, vandalism, and the Central Park jogger—who was raped and beaten almost to death—became symbols for a city gone feral, and galvanized citizens to take charge where government failed. Until we have a Seattle Center jogger, the Seattle Center cause will be one of irritation, not urgency.
For shame, Brendan Kiley. For shame.
