    Nah, tomorrow Le Mond will go back to this militant action is a result of George W Bush mode.

    Also noted by Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs, now that the attacker is more and more likely to be al Qaeda, they’ve sworn off the usage of terrorist label and back to Guerilla.

    Those of us in the “other Washington” laugh at your traffic. Seattle has six bridges connecting the two halves of the city, and the biggest (the Ship Canal) holds more traffic than the other five combined. There are two floating bridges that connect the east suburbs with the main city, and one of them is four lanes wide. Four lanes total.

    Seattle has no mass transit beyond buses. Attempts to build light rail and monorail have ranged from flat-out rejected to mismanaged to pecked to death by consensus-building and lawsuits. The downtown viaduct is all but certain to collapse in the next earthquake. And did I mention the 125,000 people whose only access to Seattle is by ferry? Sitting in stopped traffic on I-66 is nothing compared to a three hour line for a ferry.

    How does this work? Are there rules about linking with it? Inquiring bloggers want to know.
