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.

Tina has returned from Seattle with shocking news on why Trader Joe's won't be opening a Spokane outlet.
