Seattle or Pittsburgh?

Can't explain it... but my news filters are catching a lot of economic angst from Seattle..

Seattle Times is going so far as to run a picture of protests in Pittsburgh during the recession of 1983. That's way up there on the pessimist scale for them, or anyone.

One blogger is asking whether Seattle will follow the path of Pittsburgh or Detroit? The choice isn't as interesting as who is asking.....

and a former PG reporter has some brief comments on angst up there over Boeing's purchase of a plant in South Carolina.

I don't think they are close to the emotions that lead in part to putting up the billboard asking: Will the last person leaving Seattle please turn out the lights?... but what's it mean?
