  1. A speed camera to slow down people averaging 19 miles OVER the speed limit is a reason not to shop in Mt. Rainier? Seriously? I don't love speed cameras either because, in MoCo at least, they are often placed in "gotcha" places, but your complaint here is just silly. What is the relationship between Mt.R's small businesses and the city council decision regarding a speed camera? Come on.
