Out in the face of fear

The Stranger's blog "Slog," has a nice post covering last night's pub crawl in support of all 11 Seattle bars targeted by the ricin threat. Apparently, the bars were packed, and patrons are either not afraid or aren't letting fear stop them from supporting well-meaning, victimized businesses. 

I lived in Capitol Hill for years before I bought my condo (too expensive of a neighborhood for me to own in.) People there support their neighbors and won't put up with being bullied. It's an artistic neighborhood; it's a spirited neighborhood; and it's a tough, determined neighborhood. I'm sure the best in all of that was on display last night.
