Be wary of the emotional roller coaster. People are not reacting to the sideshow because it is just that, a sideshow. The fact is that the POS came out with their long awaited traffic studies and the brought absolutely nothing to the table. All indications are that things are proceeding smoothly and people are optimistic about the direction of things.
What we need to do is not make these things bigger than they are. If this fails it does not fail because the W. Seattle PeaPatch had an article about 60 voters who vote against everything. It will fail because Tim Burgess let us down and listened to that stupid article.
Hold back your rage and make sure people know where it will be directed if things don't go our way. Don't get sucked down into a brawl that the opponents are trying to create to muck the waters.
