The South Lake Union Trolley . . .

streetcar Yeah, that’s the acronym, because that’s what the new trolley in Seattle is called – it being a trolley and it running south of Lake Union down to downtown at Westlake Center . . . and Lake Union being, after all, a much more useful designator of location than downtown (or Cascade, which the private developer – Vulcan, Paul Allen‘s company, which being local ought to know better – insists on calling the area even though no one else does) . . . even though officialdom tried calling it not the Trolley but the Streetcar. (Contractors said that any effort to specifically avoid the acronym was just urban legend, but who knows?)

So the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports today, “in the old Cascade neighborhood in South Lake Union, they’re waiting for the SLUT. At the Kapow! Coffee house on Harrison Street, they’re selling T-shirts that read ‘Ride the SLUT.'”

Starts running in December.
