It's time again. I'm starting to research this year's "Heritage Turkeys of
> the Year" list looking at failures, setbacks and outrages in heritage
> advocacy, cultural resources and historic preservation efforts for 2010.
> Here's a link to last year's inaugural edition.
> It could be a particular historic building was demolished, an
> archaeological boondoggle, or clueless policy makers and ham-handed budget
> cutters dealt blows to heritage efforts in Washington, Oregon, British
> Columbia, Idaho and Alaska. I'd love get your opinions, leads, nominees and
> ideas. The list will appear before the end of the year.
> By the way, one non-Turkey thing happening this year (next week, in fact)
> is that Crosscut.com will be moving into The Globe Building in Seattle's
> Pioneer Square, formerly home of the legendary Elliott Bay Book Company.
> We're joining with some other non-profits and hope to use space there for
> readings, panels, exhibits and performances. We're thrilled to be part of
> the Square's revitalization, and joining the long tradition of uses at The
> Globe (saloon, hotel, drug company, bootlegging operation, bookstore,
> quilt factory, gold mining company, online newspaper....)
> Here's some background on The Globe and Pioneer Square.
> Thanks for your help, and as always other story tips welcome as well.
