Clothesless in Seattle


Nudists in the Pacific Northwest can breathe a sigh of relief today. Earlier this week the city's parks board refused to ban non-offensive public nudity, despite some complaints from the public. Nude events featuring freaky painted neo-hippies are therefore likely continue in the near future (among the most famous are the Solstice Parade and the World Naked Bike Ride), although perhaps under, uh, tighter scrutiny.

I'm all for this kind of free-spirited self expression. I just always thought Seattle was a little wet, cold and chilly.

Yes, We Can


"For that is the true genius of America--that America can change. Our union can be perfected. And what we have already achieved gives us hope for what we can and must achieve tomorrow."

As Hunter S. Thompson said, history is hard to know because of all the hired bullshit. But every so often we come upon a moment that feels historic. Last night was one of them. Now, of course, comes the hard part. Making the changes we can believe in will take hard work and sacrifice. But at least we've taken the right first step.
