More salmon leaping through Seattle
The Sonics? Leaving. The viaduct? Crumbling. The Mariners? Struggling. The monorail? Incorrigibly, still not running.
This is Seattle's summer of discontent. At times it seems our once best-kept secret of a city has permanently lost its mojo. If not its identity. But the other day I caught a thrilling glimpse of it again. It darted in dark green and silvery flashes, at a rate of 12 per minute, through a 2-foot watery sluiceway in Ballard.
