Three Things 24/7/365

TO BE CONSIDERED a real city a city has to have at least three things available 24/7/365. New York has subways, sex, and a buffet of drugs delivered to your home. Los Angeles has traffic jams, tacos, and drive-by shootings.

When I first came to Seattle, I wasn't sure it would qualify as a full city, but now I can report that it does. Having done extensive urban research these past three weeks, I find that the three things available in Seattle 24/7/365 that make it unique are caffeine, Pho, and facial piercings.

Milwaukee's George Webb diner chain is 24/7/365 but the Asian noodle houses, just starting now to fly the word Pho, and the piercers, keep more regular hours.

Pho is an excellent Vietnamese soup served at all times, but more often in the morning. Most Vietnamese eat soup for breakfast or at least would like to......Of course, the quality varies greatly in the states, but is consistently good in Vietnam. Of all the excellent Vietnamese food, Pho is the favorite of most Americans. It is even involved in capital punishment. If one is convicted of such, he gets one appeal which is held seven days later. If he loses this, he will be executed by a firing squad seven days later. He gets a bowl of Pho, a cigarette, and pencil/paper to write his last letter. He is then blindfolded, and shot. His family has to pay for the bullets. There is little violent crime in Vietnam.
