Re: “Ferguson: Calm down... for what?

Michael Brown did not die because he was black in America. He robbed a convenience store, assaulted the clerk who tried to stop him, and then assaulted the police officer who tried to stop him. The tragic outcome was the consequence of his actions.

Re: “About a Boat

Wonderful and touching chronology. I, too, own a 1971 Jolly Roger, and would love to put together a comprehensive design history. I think this might be a good starting point for that. Is there a way I could contact you, for a little guidance?

Re: “Meet the guy who's giving away thousands of dollars in cash to the homeless in Spokane

I'm assuming that the point here is that there are many ways to "help" people. Since he's new to the area maybe he's not familiar with what we offer. I don't think he's saying not to giving to bigger organizations or Volunteering is a bad thing just breaking it down to a basic level to encourage sharing. As to the background I applaud the Inlander for researching and making sure all facts are present. Some people make bad mistakes and pay for them. Once the jail term/parole has been completed we as a society need to help incorporate them into "normal" life again. As to his victims. I hope he has returned what he can and I assume the compassion he seems to have for the homeless extends to them too.
I don't think the "public" face of Spokane has much of a leg to stand on when spouting about treating the homeless with diginity and respect. Look at the laws they've passed with the no sit/lie laws. The attitude seems to be see no evil/ hear no evil/ speak no evil. At work (yes downtown) I over hear conversations about buying dog food to eat because it's cheap and won't spoil, sore arms/legs/back due to carrying everything they own on their backs, where the best places to go and warm up without lectures of how they deserve the injuries that no longer allows them to afford a place to live. Afterall they didn't become a bachlor degreed citzen swimming in debt and about to go postal etc... This is the "respect" this city offers it's homeless.

Re: “Who's In Charge?

Seriously? The former planning director was all talk. As much as people wanted to believe his words because he has an amazing gift for telling people what they want to hear, there's no substance. The mayor did the right thing.

A better analogy would be to cast Chesney as the tailor behind the "Emperor with no Clothes." Fortunately, he was let go before he caused a major embarrassment.

Re: “Hairy Matters

*sheepishly* I remember FireHouse, Danger Danger and Britny Fox. And Bang Tango, BulletBoys, Junkyard, Dangerous Toys, Kix, L.A. Guns, Faster Pussycat, and on and on and on. Loved it, and still rock out to it occasionally.

Re: “Hairy Matters

At some point self destructive hedonism is no longer brash youthfulness. It's old, tired and creepy. Better to burn out than to fade away. Retiring the band is the only way to avoid self parody.

Re: “Transit, public use and the problem of parking lot pee-ers

I am concerned with the decision to basically close down the second floor at the plaza. Will the patrons that use the plaza to maybe connect to other busses be able to use the 2nd floor restroom or are they planning on moving that too?
How about the businesses that on the 2nd floor, will they be forced to move out of the plaza, or will they be given a choice to move downstairs at maybe at their own expense? I feel that maybe STA will have to offer an incentive to relocate in the Plaza

Re: “Transit, public use and the problem of parking lot pee-ers

I agree. Spokane needs more, not less, vibrant public gathering places. The closest thing we have at this point is the atrium at River Park Square Mall, which let's face it, is pretty much a shrine to capitalism and the Cowles.

This is a city damn it! We have hundreds of thousands of people dedicated to life here. We aren't some grimy little gas station between Seattle and Minneapolis. We deserve more than a Spartan, stripped-down transit hub that no one wants to stand at!

The retroactive leadership at DSP, GSI and Visit Spokane (why are the tourism people even associating with the other two at this point?) can go to the dark, dank, abandoned pee-smelling urban hell that they would foist upon the rest of us.

After all, didn't we get the memo that only those with wealth and power should be able to afford dignified conference rooms? Only those in cars deserve to minimize their exposure to the elements outdoors? That only those paying the rent-a-cops should feel comfortable when they come around to question your right to exist where you are?

People are sick and tired of this elite tyranny. We work way too hard to be treated like stray dogs and be bossed around by these corporate cats in our own city. This is not a company town. Spokane is marching towards a brighter, more inclusive future whether the good 'ol boys are ready or not! If they were smart they'd jump out in front and claim credit for the bright new Spokane with emboldened public institutions. Instead they are wasting their time (and in some cases OUR tax money!) trying to stuff us back into the kennel where they think we belong.

Nope! Try again boys. Better go hurry up and publish another report about your austerity agenda while the media is still listening!
