I’d love to see Pike Place become one of them–and not just for festivals and Organic Farmer Days. Necessary traffic (restaurants picking up produce orders, for example) can be managed, but I don’t see any reason to allow through traffic. It diminishes the appeal (not to mention the safety) one of the few places in Seattle that’s ideal for walking. Besides, I’m sure the crowds of pedestrians in the street (overflowing from the too-narrow sidewalks) significantly diminish the appeal of driving.

The ultimate ride read
The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks is one of the most thought-provoking books I have read in a long time. I hope you’ll read it, too.
