Mass Transit Now, the campaign to pass Regional Proposition 1, also known as Sound Transit 3, which this blog has wholeheartedly endorsed, is holding a series of campaign kickoff events around the region this week.

Everett: Monday, September 12 (tonight!) 5-7 pm, The Anchor Pub, 1001 Hewitt Ave.
The Anchor Pub is at the west end of Hewitt Ave, and in short walking distance of many Everett Transit buses, as well as Swift. Only three ET routes (2, 12, 70) don’t serve Everett Station, and those three also go nowhere near the Anchor Pub.

Seattle: Tuesday, September 13, 6-8 pm, Neumos, 925 E Pike St.
Neomos is four blocks south of Capitol Hill Station, at the southwest corner of Pike and 10th Ave.

Bellevue: Wednesday, September 14, 5:30-7:30 pm, Lunch Box Laboratories, 989 112th Ave. NE
Lunch Box Laboratories is four blocks north and a block and a half east of Bellevue Transit Center, on the south side of NE 10th St.

Tacoma: Thursday, September 18, 6-8 pm, 7 Seas Brewing, 2101 Jefferson Ave.
7 Seas is on the east side of Jefferson, halfway between S 21st and 23rd St, four blocks west and uphill from Pacific Ave (where the streetcar and most buses run), and a couple blocks south of UW Tacoma. Half-hourly Pierce Transit route 48 serves the nearest bus stops on Jefferson, connecting to other bus routes north of 17th on Pacific Ave.

  1. I’m jacked up for tonight’s kick-off. It is only correct and proper that the kick-off for ST3 begin in a bar, like the US MARINES began in a bar!

    It is only correct and proper that the kick-off for ST3 begin in Everett, where the most passionate support for Sound Transit exists!

    It is only correct and proper that the kick-off for ST3 begin with me in attendance as I helped block for our heroic Sound Transit offense against the red shirts and clear the way for light rail to Everett!

    It’s time for transit advocates to realize the big bad wolf Jesse Young is at the door going after ST3 authority and you got one option and one opportunity to do something about it!

  2. Life ’til age 10 on Chicago’s Near North Side started ferocious lifelong attachment to transit. Carbon and copper dust in the bloodstream combined with childhood exposure to ozone and electricity more addictive than tobacco, but transit lobby covered it up.

    Wouldn’t have gone into a pub ’til I was about 30 because Mad Magazine said chocolate malt looked like a beer and tasted better. Espresso was against health code in Chicago, though Al Capone did a lot of illegal things.

    Allergies forbid alcohol including Grant’s Scottish Ale (damn!), but pubs usually have at least English Breakfast tea, so this isn’t about venue. It’s about failure to make an effort to avoid legally mandated pernicious discrimination.

    Wrong seat on buses used to be illegal for black people, and sale of homes to Jews. I can’t find that the State of Washington has any minimum age for being tried as an adult. I could have been drafted at 18, compensated by voting age lowered to match. Should be 16.

    But if I’d gotten the amount of sincere respect from authority in general, starting with the police, when I was 17 as I am at 71, I wouldn’t have spent intervening years seriously prepared for revolution, without a single dandelion in the barrel.

    And no authority, especially the police, would have allowed a child to go to jail. Or execution. An enormous amount of present criminal danger out of people too young to vote owes, with interest, to deliberate and malicious exclusion.

    By drinking age, my main enmity toward US life was watching transit die. Now, war’s with anybody who’d disrespect same age. I don’t attend events where I wouldn’t have been welcome in my malt-drinking years. Flavor irrelevant.

  3. Ah yes, Mass Transit Now, the organization that illegally obtained my email address and the email addresses of others and gets away with it. Criminals nothing more. They are getting away with it because they are Seattle based.
