Yesterday, in the middle of a very busy day, on a break, I noticed a story on the KOMO Seattle Web site with a title somewhat like this:
King County Council Member considers Leaving Seattle Over Crime Issues
Backstory: The King County Administration Building (headquarters) is in an area of downtown Seattle especially prone to street crime and filth brought about by the high number of homeless people and tent camps. County employees have been assaulted on their way to and from work. If the Council has been discussing the possibility of moving headquarters out of Seattle, I could certainly understand.
When I returned home after work, I went back to the KOMO Web site looking for the story, and it had totally disappeared without a trace. I searched all over the KOMO site and found nothing. Hmmmm… I wonder who objected to that particular story? And why?Published in
