Posted By on Tue, Mar 29, 2011 at 8:09 AM

Bad pot luck — Pullman is  a small city. But that doesn't mean they don't have what it takes to compete with Spokane. Per capita, Pullman's marijuana arrest rate is triple Spokane's. Police blame demographics. (SR)

Have those half a million emails on my desk by Monday — The Spokane County assessor's office continues to be one of the most unexpectedly interesting in Spokane. A massive information request from a former employee has the assessor crying "retaliation." The former employee, however, says it's part of a whistleblower complaint. (KREM)

Easy street  — Last year, construction on Second Avenue tore both through the streets and the pocketbooks of area businesses. But this time, area businesses said, it's not so bad. (KXLY)

Erosion of Black Rock — Black Rock North, Marshall Chesrown's luxury development, was utterly decimated by the economy. It has been foreclosed. But owners of a nearby surface mine want to continue mining until development restarts. (CDAP)

War yes, regime change no — In his speech last night, President Barack Obama explained that, while intervening in order to stop genocide was a wise move, attempting to remove Gadhafi from power would be going too far. (NYT)
