...stone was decreed too soft for the construction of Seattle’s main post office at Third Avenue and Union Street — Colman purchased the lot for pennies on the dollar. Many locals will best remember it...

    For some 10 years, I've shared a celebratory meal with a small group of Russian-speaking World War II veterans and their families on Victory Day, celebrating the anniversary of the surrender of Nazi Germany to Allied forces. For decades before that, I observed-from the sidelines-Soviet and later Russian military parades commemorating that surrender.
