Seattle's Newest Condo

Chrissie Hynde wrote about a government that had no pride in "My City Was Gone", and it holds true for the encroachment of upscale and bland housing that is dislocating and further alienating the poor and the weak here in Seattle, while simultaneously destroying the charm of local neighborhoods, small business and communities. I keep forgetting that I shouldn't worry about the Starbuck's and the Wal-Marts. The indifferent citizens will create greater damage. Greenwood is the next community that has the potential to disappear. They are still chipping away at Ballard, trees are falling everywhere and Fremont is a place for the young and stupid to drink themselves into bed with one another. Shades of Oklahoma, it seems...
