Huckleberries Online

P.S. — 9/12/05

Issue: Immigrating Californians?

Toadman: Well, by posting this (on my Web site here), I’ve dissuaded another person from even THINKING about moving to the Inland Northwest. Perhaps pictures of these lovely arachnids should be
plastered on signs in California, with a sign that reads: “Come to Idaho/Washington, we’re waiting for you.” Do you think that would keep out dem damned Californans?

DFO: Sorry, Toad, the black widow and brown recluse of California are more formidable characters than our wolf/hobo spiders. Californians don’t scare easily. After all, they live with earthquakes and the latest fashion.

Question: What would you do to scare outsiders from moving to the Inland Northwest?
