Mailbag: A Proposition for Bloomsday Packets

MikeK: Odd place for this, but is anyone going to Spokane today to pick up Bloomsday packets? If so, I have a proposition for you (no, not that kind ...)

DFO: Aha, you've stepped into my trap Councilman Mike. Not only am I not going to Spokane for Bloomsday packets, but I'm also not going to Spokane for Bloomsday. I avoid Bloomsday almost religiously. I've never written a story about it. I can't stand when cheery Bloomies come waddling home from their big day with silly smiles on their face and a desire to tell me all about their adventure. I generally visit the lakefront and lament that soon many of the Spokane bloomies will be clogging Coeur d'Alene's beaches, parks and street ways. Bah, humbug.

Question: Any other Bloomophobes out there?
