And just when I think if gotten used to the politically correct nanny-statism that runs rampant up here, and the odd characters that populate these regions, something comes up to top it. There were two this week.
We voted to legalize pot here in Washington this past fall, so we've not got a booming pot business forming here. Where folks used to "hide" it and be somewhat discrete, it's now out in the open. I don't mind, I really don't. But sometimes it does get me to scratching my head. Take this flyer I found at a local coffee shop the other day advertising pot.
And then two days ago a rather large dead whale washed up on the shore of Puget Sound a bit south of my home in West Seattle, It's apparently a "Fin Whale" which is second only in size to a blue whale. The thing got hung up on the bow of a ship, sliced in half and then rode the bow for some time before falling off and washing ashore. Now a dead whale isn't something you see every day, so it brought out the crowds -- some of whom reverently placed flowers on it. And then there was one Ms Ruby Rose (I'm assuming its a "Ms" but in Seattle you can't ever assume anyone's gender or even if they have one). Ruby Rose said he/she/it was gleaning information from the dead whale. "I can receive information through my heart and my hands and sometimes my third eye. Whales are living libraries downloading information to me."
