John Keister and the old “Almost Live” troupe enjoyed poking fun at Kent and Auburn in the Seattle TV show’s heyday. Yet a bittersweet story in today’s news both underscores and refutes their stereotype.
A woman named Amanda, 23, phoned 911 in a panic after her wedding dress was stolen out of her car in Kent. Typical of a Kent white-trash satire, right?
Worse, the theft happened on the day of Amanda’s wedding.
But happily for Amanda, the 911 dispatcher – Candice, 28 – felt compassion. She asked Amanda her dress size; it coincidentally matched hers, and she offered to lend Amanda her own wedding gown that she'd worn a year and a half earlier.
