You Heard the Sidewalk!
I seldom let sidewalks tell me what to do. But this plea (at the corner of 3rd & Blanchard) gives me pause. You know, the people of 3rd Avenue have suffered greatly over the past few weeks. Their trees have been cut down, their sidewalks have been jackhammered into oblivion and their women have been carried off. Plus, in general they just seem to be physically less attractive that other Belltown residents. So when a sidewalk tells me to save artwork along this neighborhood's fugliest, most downtrodden thoroughfare, I say: "Save it for how long??" That's how I roll.
