Damn You, Jay Inslee, Part Three. Damn You to Hell.

"Visit Seattle", its tourism promotion organization, has a press release out today.  That press release states that it supports the State Dictator's so-called "travel advisory", which urges out-of-state visitors to self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival.  So far, this is only an advisory, but many locals expect it to become another Rule by Decree from …
