What is actually shortly to turn into a reality? Free of charge Metro transit for people less than the age of 19. The King County Council “unanimously authorized [the] proposal” right now. Youthful men and women really should anticipate cost-free rides all over the county “sometime in September.” Young folks must do their greatest to stay away from the lifeless conclusion that is Driver’s Ed.

By the way, Metro is totally free until finally the heatwave is around. I know this from the bus driver who saved me from the warmth that unfold even below the leafy trees of Genesee Park. I even feel the sunshine was frying the far too-intelligent brains of the crows. They seemed louder and more frantic than typical. And the coolness of the bus trip transported me to a potential where by what remains of humanity is condemned to live in temperature-controlled bubbles on an Earth that has come to be as alien as the Pink Earth.
BREAKING: The thermometer:
It’s official: The large temperature hit 94 levels this afternoon, building right now the hottest July 26 on record in Seattle.

Westlake Station is one particular of the busiest details on the line, and this has been the sorry condition of things considering the fact that the starting of the yr. It really is astonishing. It actually will take a lot of operate to be this lousy. It actually exhibits a deficiency of mission or, additional importantly, public spirit. One particular needs Audio Transit even had the enthusiasm of a used-auto salesperson.
And certainly, gas selling prices are still falling in Washington. MyNorthwest: “Some fantastic news: Gasoline price ranges have been slipping for about 40 days in a row. Total, fuel in Washington point out is down 43 cents from the record large set on June 16, placing the present-day regular for a gallon of normal unleaded fuel at $5.12.”
And this is accurately why a major aspect of the remaining is doomed to are unsuccessful in the US. The slipping price tag of gas is, politically, “some very good information” for the Dems. The correct want’s large gasoline selling prices to stay higher, and even to go greater. This is all the GOP can chat about. It truly is betting the midterms on this one particular difficulty, which can, it believes, eclipse even the legal rights of gals. And so, the Dems are not creating the principles for what constitutes excellent and lousy information. The correct is. Excellent news is not more affordable solar panels. It truly is less expensive gas for any posture on the mainstream political spectrum.

I had no strategy there was these types of a major need for French in the Seattle space. But apparently there is. In accordance to the Puget Audio Enterprise Journal‘s real estate reporter, Marc Stiles, the “French American College of Puget Audio on Tuesday claimed it will purchase a block on North Beacon Hill, wherever it will construct a new campus.” The job will value “all around $70 million.” This is all amazing to me, because I have never ever read French spoken on a Metro bus. Ever. Or probably only when I was listening to MC Solaar on what advanced from a Walkman. But that’s rapping, not conversing.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. It truly is as well late. The proper doesn’t will need him any more. You can have him. And that mayor from New York.
