An adult fairy tale twice told... 

Good evening, Netizens... If we, as adults, could only imagine having such things as adult fairy tales, perhaps this evening's cartoon by David Horsey might be even more of an entertainment event than the cartoon itself. What if, for example, we suddenly endured a category...

Pop the lid on the box and see what falls out... 

Good afternoon, Netizens... Like a vaunted knight of old, I have been futilely railing at Queen Mary Verner, Joe Shogun, Rocky Treppiedi, Police Chief Anne Kirkpatrick and a host of other high-ranking city officials for what may seem like a lifetime to some, and until...

Monday night's City Council farce... 

Good evening, Netizens... Last Monday night we saw, once again, the bombastic, nastiness that City Council President Joe Shogun brings to the performance of his job. Although Shogun evicted George McGrath and mispoke David Brookbank's name twice or more, at least he didn't evict Ron...

Sumptuous fare...

Good morning, Netizens... Imagine, if you will, a street scene in Spokane, where the warm August afternoon lays across the city like a lazy courtesan, granting her favors to some but not all our residents. A gang unit police car, always eagerly sniffing the air...

Reverse immigration... 

Good morning, Netizens... Is this morning's David Horsey cartoon depicting truth or speculation? Granted, our national unemployment has risen to nearly an all-time high of 9.2%, while Mexican unemployment has remained at 4.9%, both facts which remain in question as to whether or not they...

When will the guilty be held accountable? 

Good evening, Netizens... At some considerable risk of having this message zotted by my handlers, I am going to post this message from former Sheriff Tony Bamonte to Tim Durkin, Assistant United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Washington. I am posting it verbatim,...

Another Texan in the White House? 

Good morning, Netizens... I have always been taught that if you want to comprehend the chaos and pandemonium of an election year, you should pay chose attention to the various candidates for the political party you find most objectionable. Given the wild swings in the...

A Gathering? By all means! 

Good morning, Netizens... I have been asked for possible date(s) to hold a Gathering this month, and to be utterly honest, both Jeanie's and my schedule are so chaotic as to make planning such a thing into a major migraine headache. Having said all that,...

The truth about Otto Zehm emerges...finally.  

Good morning, Netizens... To quote the Spokesman-Review's Shawn Vestal, in speaking of Jim Nicks' erratic and misleading trip to the truth regarding the death of Otto Zehm, “It took just five years, 20 weeks and a day.” That, folks, is just too damned long for...

All that glitters... 

Good morning, Netizens... There was a sort of an earthquake hit the Spokane region last Friday, and as of yesterday, hardly anyone is talking about it. Oh, sure the news media have been vapidly referencing the tersely-worded announcement and somnolent quotes from the Department of...

Gimme a Dumb Phone! 

Good afternoon Netizens... Upon reading a genuinely-moving piece by the Spokesman's Shawn Vestal Saturday morning about life minus his Smart phone I suddenly felt vindicated, for I have resisted all efforts by anyone involved in convincing me I needed one of those devices. I have...
