Knute Berger, aka Mossback, has some fun at my expense in the Seattle Weekly. He calls me a moocher for bumming rides from others on occasion rather than owning a family car.

Knute is entitled to be snarky; in fact, as a Weekly columnist, he’s pretty much obligated.

Still, his column merits a thoughtful response. What should it be? Submit your own draft in comments, and I’ll make sure Knute sees the best ones.

UPDATE: The Stranger and Seattlest have rallied to my defense with a lot of bile, but also some thoughtful points. Also, City Comforts.

UPDATE 2:  Even more Stranger commentary here.
