Meet Strangie

Posted by David Postman at 8:14 AM

The man behind the campaign to get Seattle's alt-weeklies to stop running tobacco ads is named Jeff Weedman. I found him by checking to see who registered the Adventures of Strangie website. I asked him what he knew about the site and the anti-tobacco campaign. He said by e-mail:

I'm the creator of the Strangie site.

But that's all he said. I asked some follow up questions, and while I wait for an answer, here's what I know about the creator of Strangie. Weedman is a 37-year-old Seattle resident. He doesn't like smoking or the viaduct, he's an artist who worked on the Washington Free Press and he's a fan of certain Stranger comics.
