Friends from out of town who visit me here in Seattle have commented that we have a lot of Subways (as in the sandwich place), and fewer of the other types of fast food outlets that you see elsewhere in the US. Here’s another one “coming soon” by the ferry terminal that I saw the other day:

Wow, what a dumb blog post.
