A Matter Of Opinion

Thursday loose thread

I post this late loose thread with a heavy heart for the destruction of the "Joel" building. It's one of my earliest memories of Spokane; my brother's name is Joel, and I believe my family took a photo of the building as we drove through on a family vacation 14 years before I moved here.

But I think we're all thankful that there aren't any fatalities reported so far, and we all hope the best for the firefighter who was injured in a fall. Ongoing coverage here.

A Matter of Opinion is really a matter of three opinions – those held by the people responsible for the opinion pages of The Spokesman-Review. Check in regularly to find out what they’re up to, what they think and where they differ and to joust with them if you want.
