The Seattle Parks Department wants to know what to name a new park, and one of the choices is science fiction hero Octavia Butler. Take the survey here. (via IO9) READ THE REST

So, she didn't do any of her writing in Seattle, and even when she moved to Seattle she lived in a neighborhood nowhere near this park? Great choice, it'll go nicely with King County, named after two people with no connection to the city.

Just as I'd prefer the park to named for something with a greater connection to the neighborhood, I'd also prefer the park to be named by the residents of the neighborhood. Thank you for the interest and as much as I appreciate all the goodness of Biong Boing and its readers, please respect the voice of the neighborhood and refrain from voting, unless of course you live here. Thanks!
