Did you know that Amanda Knox, acquitted of murder in Italy last year, is living in the International District? Folks have seen her dining at World Pizza.
Knox, a University of Washington student, has found sanctuary in an Asian neighborhood. Wise move. This is a convenient, diverse, and vibrant community at the crossroads of many different districts.
Everything is affordable here, from groceries to rent. Unlike her previous neighbors in West Seattle, most Asian immigrants mind their own business and leave people alone.
Although I haven’t seen her myself, I know which building she lives in. And no, I am not telling. Give the girl some peace.
She has been through hell in the past four years, in an Italian prison. According to a speech that Judge Michael Heavey gave at a Rotary Club meeting, Amanda knew little to no Italian, and the court conducted the trial in Italian without providing her an attorney or an interpreter. Amanda, please finish your book. It is reportedly a $4 million book deal. I am dying to read about your views on the corrupt behavior of the Italian police and court. (end)
