A Seattle landmark, "the famous 'gum wall,' dried onto the bricks of a corridor in the city's Pike Place Market," is coming down.  20 years of chewed gum plastered in wads will be "pried off the wall with powerful steam cleaners . . ."  The decision being made because, among other things, "the sickly sweet scent began attracting vermin" and well - reason enough?  Change can be good.     story

Principle in the type:  "We hold hands with our high school friends and swear to never lose touch, and then we do.  We scrape ice off our cars and feel like winter will never end, and it does.  We stand in the bathroom and look at our face and say, "Stop getting old, face.  I command you!" and it doesn't listen. . . . Your ability to navigate and tolerate change and its painful uncomfortableness directly correlates to your happiness and general well-being."          Amy Poehler
