Just when you thought it was safe to get back on the internet, Crosscut Seattle ups the ante on the SeaSk8 discussion and takes arguing on the internet about skateparks to a whole new level.

The article itself, is thorough and well researched, even though the author never spoke to a single skateboarder. But the gold here is found in the comments. The academic level of the skatepark in discussion in Seattle has officially risen to unimaginable heights. Crosscut bloggers make reference to the Tri-Borough Bridge, the viaduct, and even Jesus in an effort to make various key points about the SeaSk8 debacle and the “Seattle process”.

“Sometimes I wonder if but what all the worshipping at the altar of consensus isn’t praying to a false god. We elect leaders to lead, not study. Sure, you need to know what’s going on, but interminable naval gazing does no one any good least of all the poor citizenry who hunger to see things accomplished.”
