Doug Clark: Spokane Too Ugly for Trader Joes

Cis: I can hardly wait to see what HBO today will do with the remark in Doug Clark's column about the Seattle clerk's remark about why Trader Joe's isn't coming to CDA ... Off to work, will check back to see what DFO and the gang do with that one.

DFO: Cis, I think that remark was aimed at Spokane, not Coeur d'Alene. Here it is:

Tina has returned from Seattle with shocking news on why Trader Joe's won't be opening a Spokane outlet. Learning Tina and her husband were from Coeur d'Alene, a checker at the popular neighborhood market told them that "Spokane was marked OFF the list to get a Trader Joe's because … 'it is not visually appealing.' "
