Eye On Olympia

“Highway to Hell” was apparently already taken by the Seattle mayor’s office…

For years, Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown has posted 33 rpm album covers in her office as an indicator of the legislative mood.

With an eye to the political arm-wrestling between Seattle and Olympia over how to replace the multi-billion dollar Alaskan Way Viaduct (another elevated freeway? A tunnel? `Tunnel Lite?’), here’s Brown’s rewrite of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now”:

“I’ve looked at the Viaduct from both sides now
from north and south
but still somehow
It’s the tunnel’s illusions that I recall
But we really can’t afford it
at all.”
