A large crowd began gathering at Seattle Center this afternoon in a show of support for federal legislation that would give illegal immigrants and
their families a shot at becoming legal residents.
Your afternoon commute today could be a nightmare, particularly if you need to get through downtown Seattle.
Seriously, I don't give a flying you-know-what what the rally is about. But why do they have to do it at rush hour... IN DOWNTOWN!!!
The march starts by the Space Needle (just North of the downtown grid) follows 2 major routes through downtown that suck during rush hour anyway, cuts
across 2 other major arteries (Denny and Stewart St.'s) and then retraces it's steps! What idiot gave them a permit for this?
Check out this
map of the march's route. I work a third of the way down
on the right hand side of the map, have to cross the route to pick up my girlfriend after work (we carpool the 3 miles to and from work every day) and
then have to cross it again to get home.
So my commute is going to suck, even though my gf is going to walk up here to try to avoid some of this mess. But what about the thousands of other
people that will be stuck for hours (no exxageration, Seattle traffic sucks and the drivers do to). I'd like to see the name of the person who
signed this permit. Maybe I could stage a march in front of his house when it is time for him to go to work. Or, better yet, while he is sleeping.
