Riding the SLUT in Seattle

  |   Jan. 18, 2008 at 4:21 PM
SEATTLE, Jan. 18 (UPI) -- The latest addition to the Seattle trolley network has been nicknamed the SLUT.

The name comes from its destination, the South Lake Union neighborhood, a part of town undergoing extensive development. But a columnist for The Oregonian rode the line and found that a Hooter's restaurant at the last stop.

The line is still getting less than 1,000 riders a day, Seattle Weekly reported. The Oregonian columnist suggested that may be because the South Lake Union area is friendlier to cars than walkers with lakeside restaurants separated from the street by large parking lots.
