That’s not helpful to the situation at all!

How insulting.

Comment on UPDATE: Water-rescue response at Seacrest by john https://westseattleblog.com/2021/09/water-rescue-response-at-seacrest/#comment-2360534 Thu, 23 Sep 2021 22:25:14 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=1016835#comment-2360534 In reply to Yep.

Best of hope for the person in distress and that they receive compassionate care.  Our civic response to incidents like this is at first impressive, but it is the follow-up that we lack. That water taxi guy deserves a Dow commendation from for being a hero and suiting up to jump overboard.

Comment on UPDATE: Water-rescue response at Seacrest by hawaiian lunch https://westseattleblog.com/2021/09/water-rescue-response-at-seacrest/#comment-2360532 Thu, 23 Sep 2021 22:09:33 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=1016835#comment-2360532 She jumped off the water taxi, then was yelling about it being a “free country” so it was a very minor situation. She was also a very good swimmer based on her form I saw out there. The scuba rescue was needed in case she got too cold and started to sink. The rest of heroes from the 9 fire trucks were probably enjoying a beautiful day and a beautiful view.

At $2.75 to ride metro that will get me to and from work downtown for 1 WEEK. Meanwhile we are suffering in traffic that is so bad it is making West Seattleites more callous. I’m convinced SDOT does not want to improve traffic flows as evidenced by poor light creation (Holden/Delridge, no right turn on red??), speed bumps on what is now the main drag to get out of the island (Holden/17th & 18th), no left turn on BRAND NEW Delridge southbound at Cloverdale, and of course the dreaded Highland Park and Marginal way disaster that is only now getting attention 18 months later. Is the only prerequisite to work at SDOT a pulse?

Still haven’t docked yet from a 1:30 downtown departure.

They might actually be spending more on this – there was an RFQ earlier this year for a consultant contract up to a million.

Do you really hope for a future with no personal transit option (such as cars) whatsoever?  I’m having surgery tomorrow.  What would you expect me to do when I am released?  Hop on an e-bike?  Hobble to a bus stop when I’ll be nauseous and weak?  How would anyone visit their friends or family in non-urban areas?   How would you transport any items larger that what you could carry?  Your vision is just not based in reality.
