Vote: The big event this summer | Jon Talton

Jon Talton

Summertime and the livin' is easy, unless you're looking at the economy. With Memorial Day being the symbolic start of summer, I'll be writing a preview of the issues we may face in this Sunday's Seattle Times. But if you haven't already cut the cord to the Internet for the weekend, I'm interested in what you think. Vote in the poll. If I left something out, please write about it in the comments section of this blog. Have a great weekend!
