Seattle’s Blue Funk
Posted by Warren Peterson on September 29, 2008
It should be nirvana, a blue city in a blue county in a blue state. But something is amiss. First Boeing moves its headquarters to Chicago. Then one by one they go; Safeco sold, WAMU belly up, Sonics to Oklahoma, Mariners and Huskies to oblivion. Add in Nicklesville, monorail bust and a $3.4 billion plus state budget deficit and one begins to wonder. Is it bad karma or George W. Bush?
