Baby salmon are afraid of the dark, so Seattle built glass sidewalks
The waterfront is getting a redesign
From a kayak under Pier 66 in downtown Seattle, the new seawall and pier don't look like what you would expect.
For one, it’s not dark under the pier. The sidewalk that covers Pier 66 is now made of opaque glass, and light floods down onto the water.

ATLANTA (AP) - They had waited more than five years for this moment
No way were those frail little ropes, strung up on flimsy poles, going to hold them back.
No way were they listening to those red-shirted marshals, a bit of terror in their eyes as they pleaded futilely for everyone to come to their senses.
They had to feel it, touch it, see if with their own eyes.
