Editor’s Insight: The Seattle parks director claims the $40,000 in revenue the vending program brings the city every year is not his main concern. Hopefully, he has made contingency plans for that revenue, since he can be sure it’s not going to be there with these rules in place. Consumers will simply buy the products they want elsewhere. 11-30-11 By Elliot Maras
