I absolutely love this article. I constantly defend to Spokane, mainly to the people that live there. Glad someone else appreciates it as much as I do.
So I typed out a good response, it was removed for "personal attacks" but I guess calling someone a jackass and telling them to move out of the state isn´t a personal attack and should stay up. Great hypocrisy there Inlander.com
Also, found this in the STA Rules of Conduct,"30. Committing any act which tends to create or incite, or creates or incites, an immediate breach of peace, including, but not limited to (a) fighting, (b) racing, (c) obscene language and noisy or boisterous conduct tending to cause a breach of the peace, and (d) personally abusive epithets, or words or language of an offensive, disgusting or insulting nature, which epithets, words or language when addressed to the ordinary citizen are, as a matter of common knowledge, inherently likely to provoke a violent reaction of fear, anger or apprehension;"Sounds like it´d fall under thishttp://www.spokanetransit.com/about-sta/view/rules-of-conduct/
I drive a bus (not for STA, but have friends that do) and I don´t care if you are white, black, yellow, straight, gay, bi or whatever, there are conversations you don´t have in public places unless you are looking for a rise. I have asked middle schoolers to stop cursing and 20 somethings to not revel in their sexcapades. I have not kicked anyone off because the all stopped the conversation. Maybe the driver was a little harsh, but the moment you call me prejudiced, you can piss right off and I con´t want to be around you anymore. And why would you ask someone to keep talking about something you know they find unpleasant to hear about? That is ridiculous. And bringing up the driver´s religion? That´s BS. There´s the quote that ""Freedom of religion is freedom from religion" and this is similar to me. "Freedom of sexuality is freedom from sexuality" I don´t want to hear who you like to bone.
