Readers rave about Macy’s Holiday Parade, rant about Seattle Marathon traffic disruption.

RAVE To the hundreds of great volunteers and Macy’s Holiday Parade organizers for a joyful start to the holiday season in downtown Seattle on Friday. Loved all the characters, snowflakes, dogs and Frangos!

RANT Who the heck scheduled a marathon for the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend? One of the busiest traffic days of the year, and four neighborhoods-worth of local traffic were forced onto the freeway along with all the shoppers and holiday travelers, an unnecessary added stress! Once again, the city of Seattle proves that its planning is totally disconnected from Seattle reality.
