Seattle Commuters Urged To 'Ride The SLUT'

Ahem... Sensitive readers, turn away now...

(KNBC, Los Angeles.) SEATTLE, Wash. -- Some residents in Seattle are calling their new transit system by its acronym: SLUT.

Apparently it is officially the "Seattle Streetcar" but many people insist it was originally named the "South Lake Union Trolley" and they are sticking to it.

The coffee shop Kapow Coffee even sells commemorative T-shirts that read, "Ride the SLUT."

"Well, we just wanted to get behind the SLUT and show our support," said Don Clifton of Kapow Coffee.

Full story...

There is debate whether it really was ever called the trolley; developers claim it is an urban legend. We'll just hope the new rail system doesn't somehow live up to its reputation.

« Back to The Vox Box

In 2006, then-editor Steve Smith of The Spokesman-Review had the idea of starting a publication for an often forgotten audience: teenagers. The Vox Box was a continuation of the Vox, an all-student staffed newspaper published by The Spokesman-Review. High school student journalists who staffed the Vox made all content decisions as they learn about the trade of journalism. This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at http://voxxiez.blogspot.com.
