Jet City

Remember when Seattle was the Jet City and not the Emerald City? I liked that much better. We really were the center of much of the traffic going to Asia.

But perhaps the Emerald City better describes it now, a make-believe place run by little old men pretending to be powerful. Follow the yellow brick road, or, follow the money.

With Boeing having moved their HQ and some production away, "Jet City" isn't as accurate as it used to be.

I think "Emerald City" feeds into the "Hey, we're a world-class city! Really!" chip on our collective shoulder.
