Adventures in Hyperbole

"The goal again is to ensure that, as we grow, we don't look like an Eastern Bloc city." That's Councilmember Tom Rasmussen taking part in some serious hyperbole during Seattle's land-use committee public hearing last week. He wasn't the only one to compare Seattle's current development to that of East Berlin or Soviet Poland either. So in case you're wondering if everyone is taking a measured, even-handed approach to discourse surrounding Seattle's development and community issues...of course not. [ST] Image: Rennett Stowe
