"The light was so bright...we had to run for cover."

Emergency rooms in the sea side town of Seattle were bulging at the seams on Satuday due to what some are calling "sudden on-set blindness."

Known as the wetest town north of the Joshua tree's in the Nevada dessert, even seasoned Seattlelites were stunned by this year's monsoon. Further investigation revealed that some of these patients were deliberatly staring at the sun.

"We tried to put our heads in the sand but we kept hitting granite. The light was so bright we had to either stare at it or run for cover."

Rumors of people jumping from bridges to get away from what could be an overwhelmingly high bill from the ER were unsubstantiated.

One on looker told us that people are so tired of what is happening in the other Washington, blindness is their only choice. With tears in his eyes he said he worried most about "their latest sacrificial lamb."

"Children and young adults should be leaping about, just not from bridges."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
