And you say it’s hard to engage young people…

Okay, sure it can be, but that’s what the Bus is here for. And we like hearing about (and meeting) other folks who are doing it too. We were recently hipped to a certain Mr. Tyler “Trouble” Brittain who’s blowing people’s minds in Yakima by doing what nobody else has been able to do: get under-21 folks to turn out for cultural events.

How does he do it? Well, for one thing, he steps outside the existing structures, proving once again that the  quickest way to make something completely undesirable is to label it as “cool!” (with jumping thumbs-up and that “rock and roll” music playing).

It’s a good lesson to keep in mind as we move forward into election season: be real, be yourself, and most importantly, don’t talk about it, be about it. Big ups to Trouble – we’ll be talking soon.
