Seattle’s low-tech crisis

The city urgently needs a Dutch boy with a very large thumb.

I just walked past a few million dollars’ worth of equipment trucks, tractors, fire engines, pickups and police cars and dozens of municipal employees watching water gush from a big leak near KING 5’s office on Dexter, waiting for someone somewhere to somehow make it stop.

No wonder my shower today reminded me of being in a cheap Italian pensione. Some are fretting about one of Paul Allen’s nearby condo projects getting wet, but I doubt it will crimp his style.
