    Ride the SLUT

    Seattle trolley line has acronym: SLUT

    SEATTLE - Officially, it's the South Lake Union Streetcar. But in the neighborhood where the new line runs, it's called the South Lake Union Trolley — or, the SLUT. At Kapow! Coffee, a shop in the old Cascade neighborhood, 100 T-shirts bearing the words "Ride the SLUT" sold out in days, and another 100 are on order.

    "We're welcoming the SLUT into the neighborhood," said Jerry Johnson, 29, a part-time barista.

    Some claim — incorrectly, according to representatives of Vulcan Inc., the company that is developing the area — that South Lake Union Trolley was the original name and that it was changed when officials belatedly realized the acronym.

    The $50.5 million project should be completed with streetcars running in December. Underlying the lighthearted opposition, however, is resentment over changes in the old working-class neighborhood.

    "There was a meeting with representatives from the city several years ago," Johnson recalled.

    "They asked us, 'What we could do for you?' Most people raised their hands and said, 'Affordable housing,'" he said. "Then the people from the city huddled together — 'whisper, whisper, whisper,' — and they said, 'How about a trolley?'"

    Since then, Cascade has been ignored in Vulcan brochures that lump the neighborhood together with Denny Park and Denny Triangle under the term South Lake Union. With the streetcar, said Don Clifton, a Cascade resident, "We learned how fun it is to change the name of things."

    Re: Ride the SLUT

    How much does the SLUT cost?

    Will the SLUT take me for a ride?

    Can the SLUT be ridden all night long?

    Is the SLUT clean or dirty?

    Who else has ridden the SLUT?

    Does the SLUT squeal before she comes to a complete stop?

    It won't be long before some tree hugging group makes them change the name.

    Does she whistle while she works?

    Can you ring her bell?

    Based on past experience, I believe that's extra.
