That aside, the story that the neighborhood's streetcar line now under construction was called the South Lake Union Trolley until the powers that be realized the unfortunate acronym -- SLUT -- seems here to stay.

Things you can do to help the president
(from letters to the editor)
I saw President Bush's speech Thursday night. It's time for patriotic Americans to stand by their president. Now, you ask yourself, I'm just an average American; what can I possibly do? I've got four suggestions to help you get started.
1) If you have a teenager, advise him or her to join the Army or the Marines. For a fallback, the National Guard.
2) If you're a senior citizen, when you get that monthly Social Security check, write on the envelope "Return To Sender. Maybe this money will help win the war."
3) Since we're borrowing the money from China to pay for this war, please buy all Chinese products from now on. I myself am using an ancient Chinese lead-based deodorant.
4) Finally, write your senator to have them eliminate the presidential term limit. It appears that George W. Bush will need at least another eight years to fulfill his Messianic fantasy.
