Breakin' up with Seattle

Dear Seattle: I’m breaking up with you, and I’m officially and forever over you. After you essentially kicked me out of your city and your county when I decided I wanted to buy a piece of property, we were pretty much done. But then, all along I’ve continued to hear your people
