Where's the Outrage at Seattle's Snow Shutdown?

Hundred-car pileups on skating-rink roads, unsalted downtown sidewalks with people falling on their asses left and right, bridge closures stranding people at home, a sub-skeletal bus fleet where the coaches fill up too fast to pick up most would-be passengers anyway (and in terms of routing and frequency, is doing its best to mimic Grand Cayman's legalized-hitchhiker transit system) . Look, I don't expect the city to buy a bunch of new snowplows or nothin', but where's the outrage? And where's the mayor? Or Ron Sims? What will it take before "Arctic Storm '08" becomes Mother Nature's version of the WTO politically? Well -- and let's hope this situation doesn't worsen -- it might take a couple charter buses sliding through an I-5 guardrail, that's what:
