Pointlessness at the Polls, weekend #1

Since we’ve got our ballots and you probably do too, let’s call this the first weekend of the election, which could be dubbed Pointlessness at the Polls, even though we’re not going to the “polls,” aka “polling places” (however, the big envelope of dead tree matter that accompanied the ballot reveals we can drop off the ballots rather than entrust them to USPS, so we’re going for that option — here in WS, a dropoff spot will be open at High Point Community Center on 3/8, 3/9, 3/10, 3/12, and 3/13 **only** — before 3/8, the only dropoff available is downtown). As a service to anyone still deciding whether to go no/no, yes/yes, no/yes, or yes/no, here are today’s related headlines: “Tunnel lite” MIGHT work (Times), Scare tactics in the election? EEK! (Times), N/N wins Stranger poll (Slog), P-I editorial board boss sort of plugs retrofitting (P-I). P.S. To hear in-person debating on all this, check out the WS Chamber’s transportation forum at WSHS Tuesday night.

    If you haven’t linked to it already, you might also be interested in the Sightline Institute’s series on the viaduct. Sightline used to be called Northwest Environment Watch and presents a sustainability perspective on the issue. Just another point of view to consider.

    Thanks for identifying West Seattle High School as the location of Tuesday night’s viaduct meeting. The meeting announcement in yesterday’s (Friday) P-I incorrectly gave the address of Hiawatha Community Center.

Sorry, comment time is over.
