Weather-Control Pranksters Rain Out Nickels’ Car-Free Day
A group of UW weather scientists claimed responsibility on Monday for ruining Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels' inaugural car free day on Capitol Hill yesterday. Calling themselves the Reactionary Anti-Initiative Network, the scientists explained that Sunday's downpour was the result of weeks of careful planning and precision actions. When Mayor Nickels announced 'car free days,' we knew we had to do something, said project lead Bernard Studemacher. Weather is what we know, so naturally it was our preferred weapon.
