Let’s start with the ever-growing homelessness crisis in the city. Seattle has a policy, when dealing with homeless people (or, in their ridiculous phrasing “people experiencing homelessness”), to offer them services, but never require them to accept those services. Of course, the vast majority of Seattle’s homeless refuse the proffered services, and remain on the street. They do this because they like not having too many “rules”, and the ability to sell and use drugs and guns with relative impunity; both of which activities generate a fairly large amount of money for them to live on.

One year ago: Scenes from Seattle-a Ghost Town. Hundreds of Seattle businesses have closed for good, due to the edicts of Dictator Jay Inslee in Olympia. The pictures very carefully avoid the boarded-up and graffiti-scarred storefronts, reflecting not only the pandemic restrictions, but the destruction of the Antifa riots last summer. Seattle is becoming unlivable.
New sense of urgency as more in Washington set to become eligible for Covid-19 vaccine. It has been very difficult to find a vaccine, even for us old folks.
