What shall we do about Bumbershoot?

As you have no doubt heard by now, One Reel, the non-profit that produces Bumbershoot, is in some serious debt. Like, bye-bye Bumbershoot kind of debt. Talks are in progress with the city council about what to do about the situation. What do you think? Should the city bail it out? Or could we get along fine without this beleaguered Labor Day celebration? Do all the years of rising prices and lowering expectations mean it deserves to go out of business? Or is Bumbershoot a precious cultural asset that should be preserved at any cost?

Let us know how you feel, by taking this very unscientific poll.
