Hard times

Seattle's Elliot Bay Book Co., an iconic bookseller located in Seattle's historic Pioneer Square District, has been sufficiently hard-hit by the recession to be considering a move. While I'm glad to hear they're not considering closing, this news is still a huge blow for the other businesses in Pioneer Square—a gorgeous bit of Seattle, for those of you who haven't seen it, but one that has long contained more than its fair share of the city's homeless and mentally ill population, and is now really struggling with the recent dip in tourist income.
