Re: “So, you're in the mood for... Pizza by the Slice?

Pizza Pipeline also offers pizza by the slice for lunch. They have some 3 slice and a drink lunch deal too... something like 5 dollars. I'm not sure, I bet their website would have the details though.

Re: “Pick Your Own Adventure

Great tips! I backpacking can be an incredibly therapeutic adventure if you have the right mindset. We all need some time to get away from the grind and recharge. www.backpackingthrougheuropeguide.com

Re: “Folded Piece of Heaven

Finally people are noticing the authentic Mexican food in Spokane. So tired of Azteca making the best of lists every year.

Re: “Summer Guide 2014: Outdoors

Leavenworth is our favorite place to visit. We live in Spokane, but Leavenworth feels like our home away from home.

We built a website to help other tourists like ourselves find out what is happening in Leavenworth and get our recommendations on places to stay, where to eat and what to do when you are there.

Re: “Normal Babies

I'm in! Thanks. But the experience you describe recalls for me the 60's and 70's.

Re: “The Inlander's Music Festival for All

This is frickin pathetic. There's no list, there's nothing. Who in the hell maintains this website?

Re: “Multimedia Gift Guide: Board Games

As a followup, I recalled today that the Godzilla story was a reaction to the radiation poisoning that continued for years after the atomic bombings. So, in light of the the ongoing Fukushima reactor catastrophe, this game and its description are like another stick poked in the eye for the Japanese.

Re: “Multimedia Gift Guide: Board Games

I don't know if the description for the "King of Tokyo" board game is real, or black humor. If real, it's a sad statement on American decency. I suspect the author of the blurb is unaware of the horrific events of WW2. Given that, in March, 1945, we fire-bombed Tokyo with napalm and 250,000 civilians burned to death, I don't think playing a board game where you and your family can gleefully "destroy" Tokyo could be thought of as wholesome entertainment. It's as if the Japanese made a board game about Pearl Harbor, or the NRA made a Newtown board game.

But Paula and Kieren didn't purchase it, they started it! Great to have you guys out, as always!

Re: “Gifts for Outdoorsy Types

I'd add the Biolite stove. Cook your food and charge your electronic devices with twigs & pine cones. Amazing!

Re: “Gifts for Tea Partiers

Noise canceling headphones. The best way to drown out the high pitched whining and squealing of progressives.

Re: “Architecture For Your Head

Erin Haskell is a true artistic talent, surpassing a single style or art form. I sincerely hope Spokane embraces her as an artist and designer. Of course, I am her father.

Re: “Play On

Very interesting to read the work Center Point is dong in our community. The nonprofit community radio station KYRS has a weekly show spotlighting a different Spokane area nonprofit each week doing great things in our community. It´s on Saturdays from 9-10am on 88.1 or 92.3FM or streaming online at NonprofitSpokane.org

Re: “Play On

For almost 60 years Center Pointe´s mission has been to serve our most vulnerable in our community. A great way to support this mission is to become a "Friend of Center Pointe" and sign up to donate $10 or more a month. With 300-400 new friends who just $10, the work of providing recreational therapy to those with disabilities will continue. Learn more by calling Center Pointe at 325.5451 or visit http://www.ctrpt.com/friends.html

Re: “Bands to Watch 2013: Hooves

Great band! So glad they are getting some attention.
I have to say, however, this photo is not so great. I´ve seen them play numerous times and it doesn´t represent them well. The drummer (guy with the beard) is the tallest member, I´m not sure why the photographer made him an Oompa Loompa! Plus, the facial expressions....like they had no direction. Feel bad for these dudes! They deserve a better photo.

Re: “There's Not Enough Poverty In Kids' Books

Poverty in kids´ literature? Pretty wonky stuff for grade schoolers. First you have to define it. What is poverty? Income below a certain level? Lack of basic necessities, like food and shelter? Fewer consumer goods and services than others?
Then you have to explore the causes. In America, children in poverty are about seven times more likely to have been born out of wedlock. They are raised by a single parent, almost always a woman. If mom doesn´t have a high school diploma, it´s increasingly likely that the child will live in poverty. And then you have to factor in potential substance abuse and mental health issues, which also increase the chances of living in poverty.
How long does poverty last? Is it a life sentence? The answer is that it´s not. People move up and down the socio-economic ladder all the time. Just because you´re born into poverty doesn´t mean you´re stuck there. And just because you´re born into a middle class or upper middle class is no guarantee you´ll stay there.
