Tashkent, UZ Renounces Seattle Sister City Status
In an unanticipated turn of events this week, the entire city of Tashkent, Uzbekistan rose up with one voice and vehemently renounced their sister city status with Seattle. The upheaval came as all of Tashkent was watching a recent speech by Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels. Details are sketchy, but it seems that Nickels' comments on his proposed green-building program just happen to sound exactly like the most insulting curse in the Uzbek language.
