It’s funny that people say the SPD should look more like Seattle.

Both parts of your sentence beg more questions than the STB server can handle. Modern worldwide advertising seems to be making people every place in the world look pretty much alike.

But you know, I’m really grateful I can wear my running shoes to the office here, which would probably mean termination in Detroit, or at least result in back issues of GQ left at my desk every day.
And come to think of it, I think the bicycle squads for both SPD and the Sheriff’s department look exactly like everybody in Detroit thinks Seattle looks. Not a bad look, you think?
