Re: “What to expect from Walt Worthy's new Convention Center Hotel

The building is ugly. It looks more like a prison than a nice hotel. I agree that they should have kept the darker colored facade. The gray/ white just makes it look incomplete, or like it belongs in an industrial setting. Concrete is not attractive. Ugh!

Re: “Restore the Honesty

Sorry George, Until we hear you call out the liars and scoundrels from your own party you have zero credibility. Weren't you the one who lied when you promised to keep your time in DC to one term? The latest antics of the 47 traitors is not even mentioned in your Op Ed. Never again will a Republican get my vote.

Re: “Land of... Whatever

Is America more casual than is once was? Yes. Do some carry it too far to the point of just plain lazy? Absolutely. However, Mr. Nethercutt seems to be more into appearance than substance. I find that people everywhere I go are generally considerate about holding doors. You reap what you sow and there are many "suits" out there, particularly in politics who are anything but fine upstanding citizens. A suit and tie and a close shave do not make for an ethical honest individual as is so painfully clear when you look at the miserable bunch of miscreants in Congress right now!

Re: “'Don't Shoot Me'

The shoot first and ask questions later mentality that too many officers exhibit these days must be addressed. The first step is admitting there is a problem and next addressing the problem. All law enforcement officers should be required to wear a body camera as well as to have extensive training in de-escalation techniques to be used to avoid the use of lethal force. Not every subject of a police call is an adversary and citizens should be treated with respect and dignity. This did not need to happen and the deputies involved should be disciplined.

Re: “A Hate/Love Relationship

Jobs that pay a living wage are essential to any community that wishes to thrive. I will be happy to return to Spokane after experiencing life in Tennessee. Eventually Spokane may become more progressive, but compared to where we now reside it is much more enlightened.

Re: “No on 522 has raised more money than any other initiative campaign in Washington history

Big money seems to be able to buy anything. Hope the voters in WA don't fall for it. We deserve to know what is in the food we eat. Labeling is not unreasonable. Turn out progressives!!

Re: “New But Familiar

I'm happy to see Geno's open again, but sad that the old menu is gone. Loved their lasagna and chicken parmesan.
