SEATTLE CHANNEL Weekly Viewguide


Selected new programs on SEATTLE CHANNEL, May 28--June 4.

City Inside/Out with C.R. Douglas
Parking Woes
Premieres Friday, May 29, 7 p.m.

As Seattle grows, city government is trying to find the right balance of parking for residents, commuters and businesses. For decades, "residential parking zone" permits have helped renters and homeowners secure street parking in the city's busiest neighborhoods, but now, city leaders are considering changing the rules. The City Council will be voting soon on whether to create "restricted parking zone" permits that will extend the all-day parking privilege to businesses to use for their workers. How will the new rules affect Seattle? And with light rail poised to open on July 18 in Southeast Seattle, will there be enough parking for residents, commuters and businesses?

American Podium
Thomas Ricks on the Iraq Gamble
Premieres Tuesday, May 19, 8:00 p.m.
Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post Pentagon correspondent Thomas E. Ricks argued in Fiasco that the United States' invasion of Iraq was disastrously conceived and executed. Now, he has written another timely chronicle of what has happened in Iraq, and where things stand now, The Gamble: General David Petraeus and the American Military Adventure in Iraq, 2006--2008. Ricks writes as both an analyst and a reporter with lots of real-time access to the chain of command. His latest book features closely observed descriptions of how the "surge" worked on the ground and is informed by Ricks' savvy knowledge of internal Pentagon politics and keen understanding of the Iraq war's long-term effect on American forces.
