Seattle trolley line has acronym

SEATTLE (AP) -- Officially it's the South Lake Union Streetcar. Within the old Cascade neighborhood, part of the area to be served by the new line, it's popularly known as the South Lake Union Trolley - or SLUT. At Kapow! Coffee, 100 T-shirts bearing the words "Ride the SLUT" sold out in days and another 100 are on order.

"We're welcoming the SLUT into the neighborhood," said Jerry Johnson, 29, a part-time barista.

Trolley tracks have been laid from downtown along Westlake Avenue to Lake Union and project officials say the $50.5 million project should be completed and streetcars running in December
