Crosswalks

Posted on Sat, Sep 29, 2012 at 8:23 AM



To the complete idiot in the vehicle that almost ran me over in the
crosswalk at Sharp & Ruby on 9-24. If I am such a "bleeping" cow, then why
was your response that "you did not see me?" Spokane drivers open up your
eyes. Those in the crosswalk do not enjoy dodging cars while crossing
correctly at intersections that have a turn lane or otherwise. What good is
it to have the right-of-way if your are dead or severely injured!

Brakeless Bikes

Posted on Sat, Sep 29, 2012 at 8:23 AM



To the guys on the brakeless bikes. Yeah, it's cool you can keep up with
traffic and blow through lights we drivers have to stop for. Your bright
red tires are a spectacle I guess you just had to have. Oh, and way to go
skitching on that semi-truck up the hill, that was pretty
death-defying.Please don't threaten to spray paint my car when I shout at
you to get off the road, granted we do share the roadway, so I should get
over it. All in all, you make biking stupid look cool, I guess. Good luck
not dying in the winter.

Football and Tips

Posted on Sat, Sep 29, 2012 at 8:23 AM



Ok guys football season is here and many of us are looking forward to the
hours and hours getting together for the games at the favorite sports bar.
Please remember that the people serving you are excited about the season
too. But if your group comes in and takes up the seating area and orders
just a couple of drinks or just water and stays for hours, just think of
the effect your stay has on your servers income that they rely on to pay
the bills at home. I see it every weekend (as a customer) tables full of
guys mostly drinking water and the only thing on thier mind is the game.
When they are done they leave a few coins as a tip. The servers can't just
go to other areas in the room because you aren't ordering, they rely on
each table for their income. Please show some concern for these servers by
thinking of your effect on their income and tip accordingly or please just
stay home to watch the game. And really I am not a server, I am just tired
of seeing self centered people.

Hey Rebound Man!

Posted on Sat, Sep 29, 2012 at 8:23 AM



You enjoy your (my) girl! and all the drama that comes with her! That
includes that debt that she is accumulating as you read this. The Fast Cash
US and Mobileloans people are calling me as a reference because she doesn't
want you to know. I, on the other hand am relieved and waiting for the call
for help. Hey, thanks old man! You deserve her, after all

Kind Stranger

Posted on Sat, Sep 29, 2012 at 8:23 AM



Many thanks to the kind stranger who stopped and helped my fiancé and I fix
a flat bike tire on the Centennial trail a few weekends ago. Our bike ride
was looking to take a sour turn quickly when we were ten miles away from
our car without a patch kit, bike pump, or cell phone. Thanks for
generously letting us use your equipment and making sure we got on our way
safely. You really saved our day!

Well Done!

Posted on Sat, Sep 29, 2012 at 8:23 AM



Cheers to the Spokane County Library District Board of Trustees for their
timely and thoughtful revision of their internet policy. They opened two of
their board meetings to public comment on the topic, and just passed a
revised policy that reflects the community's input, is aligned with state
law, and takes into consideration recent state and federal court rulings.

To Drivers

Posted on Sat, Sep 29, 2012 at 8:23 AM



To all the people who drive on Francis or Nevada street. While I am on a
bike, I still have rights. Standing in between both lanes of traffic,
walking my bike, and my dog while waiting for you, is a violation of law.
It is your responsibility as a driver to obey the law, which states you
must yield for a pedestrian crossing in a crosswalk. Period. I go out of my
way to stop while I'm driving. Shouldn't you?

Uniformed

Posted on Sat, Sep 29, 2012 at 8:23 AM



To those uninformed/misinformed people who comment on marijuana use and its
physical and social effects. You claim that it's a gateway drug, and you're
making a false correlation. Instead of polling heavy drug users (meth
heads, etc.) , asking them if their miserable lives began by smoking weed,
why not report on how many older pot smokers are out there, who have not
gone on to hard drugs? I'm sure you'll find plenty with good jobs, decent
families, and robust health. Have you ever considered that the mighty
pharmaceutical lobby fears full legalization of something that can be
produced for free (with a bit of light, water, and nutrients) that provides
physical and mental relief, because they would lose millions of dollars in
their manufactured, dangerous drugs? Moreover, why not poll those same hard
drug users, and ask them if they drank alcohol before their destructive
habit? But, alcohol is okay, because it's legal, right? The same people who
fear the sweet-scented clouds of cannabis are amid a smoke screen of their
own. Nobody is asking you to try it. Just do a bit of research before
commenting on the matter.
