Re: “A Day for Diversity

"Diversity." What an amusing euphemism for "genocide of White countries."

Re: “For Your Consideration

Get both of Isbel's albums. And if you don't listen to the Drive by Truckers, what the hell's wrong with you? Buy some of them, too.

Re: “Spokane Style

Great article, including the coverage on Ken Brooks. Mr. Brooks' appreciation for the larger context of architecture - including his ideas on improving Spokane's relationship with the river is something few are aware of. Bill Youngs' excellent book "The Fair and the Falls" provides a great quote from Brooks, showing just how far ahead of his time he was: “Look, if you’re going to do something for the City of Spokane, reclaim that river. Get the pollution out of it; get it back to its original state if possible. And it should be the feature of our city.” Were he alive today, am sure Ken would be pleased at our City's progress - and would urge us to keep at it.

Re: “Spokane Style

I'm a huge fan of Spokane, so please don't take this wrong. I just get so frustrated because it could be so much better. It could be the most awesome city in the Northwest. But there are crappy decisions that bring it down. Like those cheap planters in the opera house. It's beautiful building, but that cheap blue planter brings the whole place down to a meh level.

Re: “Cheap Eats: New and Cheap

I visited Spokane just last weekend,I was very disappointed to see 12 of the 24 taps at 24 Taps Burgers and brews were nothing special and mostly Anheuser Busch products. I didn't eat any food, but I did enjoy a few locals brews they did have on tap. As for fried chicken Ezells is amazing!! Try it once you will be addicted for life. Whisk is also good, Darin is a great guy.

Re: “Cheap Eats: New and Cheap

Happiness is pretty good. Please don't eat there as it's easier to get a table right now.

Re: “Parallel Parking

Once they get this part of the city charter, any neighborhood with such a mixed use scenario, across the downtown corridors, can apply and build them out.

It makes sense for it first to get approval and show promise in the Main/Division/Post street rectangular zone that the city has already been developing with the Convention Center, WSU, and Grand Hotel. With Riverfront moving forward, areas that aren't near bars, but could serve as stops for people on the move who can use these zones will make more people interested in staying in the downtown corridor. Build out from there.

Re: “Parallel Parking

How about focusing getting on other neighborhoods besides Main. It gets all the attention. Energy keeps going to Main and it is already vibrant.

Re: “Parallel Parking

We also need more public art --whimsical sculptures that double as benches for example.

You can also find lower cost gourmet burgers at Penny's Pit in Rathdrum!

Re: “Wet Sounds

Your "critique" would hold only a minuscule amount of accuracy if you were sitting just outside of the emergency exit, with door ajar. Maybe you were...maybe not. I'm assuming the latter, since you probably would have complained about that, as well.

Your piece sounds more like a desperate attempt to make a name for yourself. If a show is so unsettling for you, maybe you shouldn't sit down for Singin' in the Rain with the expectations of the original Golden Globe Award winners. But, if you must make a name for yourself, then my hat...not necessarily "off" to you; more like a subtle "tipping" of my hat.

A valiant attempt on your part, but it looks as though the show and its cast outshined you. There's always next time...

Just like a cast and a bad show (although, not in this case), you'll have some bad reviews as a critic. Definitely some inaccurate ones. Don't beat yourself about this one. Shake it off and try to move past it. After all, your opinion matters...? lol

With respect to your inaccurate critique, well, you know what they say: "that's one man's opinion" (albeit, a very tiny man).

Forward...

There are people who don't like Zips? They are lying to themselves.

Moved to Wenatchee. Whenever family and friends come to visit they know I appreciate a Wrangler.

Re: “Cheap Eats: Burger Brawl

I always stop by the Zip's in Ritzville on my way to Spokane. Gotta get my Wrangler fix! Sadly, no Zip's in Yakima :(

Re: “Cheap Eats: Burger Brawl

The zips on the south hill used to be the best in town but over the last few years it's gotten really bad. The one on market is one of the better ones now.
