'60s memories in downtown Seattle

Posted by Bruce Ramsey

Sometimes the reader needs a week off of heavy issues. Or the writer does. Anyway, it is summertime, and my Wednesday column has not a single argument in it. It is about my memories of downtown Seattle from about age 12 to age 16, when I lived in Edmonds. The column recalls the best French dip sandwiches I ever had, and prowling for political books in bookstores long since out of business. There is also the story of how I visited downtown while playing hooky, and how I almost got nailed for it. School is not in session, so I suppose it is as good a time as any to tell the tale. Click below for a Q&A podcast about this column.
