Father and kids treated to bad downtown memory

OlympiaMay 4, 2013 

I gotta hand it to Olympia’s mayor, City Council and Olympia Police Department. I give all three of you kudos for the continued nonsense that occupies our downtown sidewalks.

I took my family out to lunch yesterday, and on our way to a great Thai restaurant, my 7-year-old got to take in the lovely sights of crazies and a full-fledged fistfight across the street at the artesian fountain.

So rather than charging your exorbitant monthly tax on businesses for sidewalk beautification, get some necessary police back on their feet or pedaling the back alleys. There’d be fewer broken noses and maybe some better memories for a future constituent.

The Olympian is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news.
