Tomorrow night at 7 PM at City Hall, we're hosting a debate on the $4.2 billion deep bore tunnel project.

Despite the political polarization on the issue, both sides enthusiastically agreed to participate in PubliCola's debate, which we take as a positive sign that both sides see the need to get past the gotcha soundbites and roll up their sleeves for a frank and civil talk about this damn thing.

We certainly don't expect a kum-ba-yah; even-keeled tough guy KIRO reporter Essex Porter is moderating and doesn't go in for that sort of thing.

We do expect the audience to bring it. There's going to be plenty of time for your questions. (There's also going to be a chance for someone to win Cola blogging rights about the tunnel issue.)  See you tomorrow at 7 PM.
