America's best read urban weekly | Learn More »
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!
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.
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.
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!!
I'm happy to see Geno's open again, but sad that the old menu is gone. Loved their lasagna and chicken parmesan.
