on one hand, this column is great in that it calls out and brings to the forefront the issues that should be widely discussed with the community. i plead her to offer more specifics, because that is when change actually occurs. on the other, i completely agree with many of the responses on this thread that what we have here is perfection thriving within imperfection. spokane is so wonderful for what it is. i'm 23 yrs old and have been spokanite for the majority of my life now. i found a job right out of college here in our community. yes it's beautiful and close to nature and summer is renewing and incredible here. it's not for everyone. but those who choose to find and pursue the beauty know of its greatness. i'm young, but i know that i'm lucky to to have the world at my fingertips while remaining here in spokane. i can go anywhere from spokane, but it's the best feeling to return home, where traffic is practically nonexistent and a river is a two block stroll away from my cheaply rented downtown apartment. we can improve, but it takes time and money. we need to encourage more young people to continue their efforts, otherwise any hope of an improved arts scene is out of reach.
