Seattle knows of fateful extremes. Back in its early days, lumbermen dragged logs down muddy, truculent Yesler Way and gave America a name for such streets: Skid Road.

This is the home of the original Skid Road, when new-logged timber was sent skating down through robust but questionable neighborhoods to the harbor. Since then, the rough-and-tumble town has emerged as the high-tech jewel of the Pacific Rim. Today's vagrants vie for sidewalk space with an array of restaurants, each offering a new and purportedly superior variety of nouveau-Northwest-poached-in-rainwater cuisine. It's enough to make a homeless guy go "hooey."

No doubt about it, many of the homeless in this socially progressive city certainly have an attitude. They saunter into city and county meetings, demanding funds for homeless programs. They march through downtown, posting flyers seeking blankets to get them through the chilly nights. They even set up a campground on the plaza of the County Administration Building, successfully pressuring officials into providing an indoor shelter for the upcoming winter.
