Crosscut Op-Ed: Mourn the loss of Tula's, then fight to save Seattle jazz

I wrote an op-ed for Crosscut paying tribute to Tula's Restaurant & Jazz Club and looking ahead to the future of live jazz in Seattle.

"Relying on cover charges and selling food and alcohol aren't enough to keep these venues open anymore. But it is possible to keep our culture alive amidst the pressure to maximize short-term profits."
