I’m a bus chick and I vote

Fellow transit types (and generally concerned citizens),

Want more transit–and more transit-friendly elected officials–in the region? Vote this fall (please). You can register online in less time than you spend waiting for a transfer.

Come on! Do it for Seattle. With no NBA season to look forward to, we’ll need something to celebrate in November.

Sonics lost, but Seattle won

Tonight, in keeping with our annual tradition, Bus Nerd and I attended the Pistons/Sonics game. My team lost (Pistons: 101, Seattle: 97), but since the Pistons are my second-favorite team (and Tayshaun Prince is my favorite player), I wasn’t too disappointed. Aside from a return ride on one of the funkiest of funky buses (both of us smelled skunk), fun times were had by all.

We returned home to this fabulous news:

“No and no: Voters rejecting both viaduct options”

“Mass transit may end up as biggest winner”

Transit + Streets is still alive, baby! Now, let’s see how much clout this “advisory vote” actually has.
