Veteran journalist and third-generation Seattleite Knute Berger thinks Seattle is turning into the civic equivalent of a Starbucks’ Frappucino. Holding forth as “Mossback” over the years on the pages of Seattle Weekly, Seattle Magazine, and on Crosscut.com and KUOW, Berger’s contrarian and libertarian view of life in Seattle have been compiled into a new book, Pugetopolis: A Mossback Takes on Growth Addicts, Weather Wimps, and the Myth of Seattle Nice.
