Seattle Sucks Reason #135: the poll

Seattle Sucks.

There’s neither time nor space or inclination to expound on the reasons. However, this story typical of Seattle is generating responses from intense anger to apathy.

Peter Yarrow. The Peter of the Peter, Paul and Mary musical trio. In 1970, the 32-year-old Yarrow sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl. He was convicted of the molestation, served three months of a one- to three-year prison sentence and was pardoned by President Carter on the basis of his fame.

The Seattle Public Libraries is bringing in Yarrow to perform a free concert for children and families next week.

Right or wrong, what say you, and also of taxpayers footing the bill?

    Just goes to show what short memories people in general have. I won’t watch, or if something related turns up on the TV, quickly change the channel, anything connected to Woddy Allen.

    Ah yes, the good old “Artist” exemption. Enough to make one sick to the stomach…
