I heard Seattle cops are cracking down on jaywaylking...

... and people are widely sympathetic to this. And here I thought I'd just moved to Seattle, not Singapore.

But, I tell you what, Seattle police. Feel free to try to ticket me for jaywalking. I hope you've been keeping up with your speedwork and hill training.

People here are so funny! They never cross the street if they don't have a light. They wouldn't survive a minute on the east coast!

Did you see the newspaper story that some 17-year old girl is being charged with assault against a police officer for trying to evade a jaywalking ticket? Supposedly she "shoved" him. Obviously I wasn't there and don't know exactly what happened, but (a) I'd be shocked if she initiated the physical struggle and (b) I'm completely shocked that the bit of the article I read was so sympathetic to the cop. INSANE.

Other than that, Seattle is a beautiful place. I think I'm going to live here a long time.
