The Slice

I wish we had these little guys here

There are those in the Spokane area who practically sneer when they say “Back East,” as if it's all a forsaken urban wasteland.

It's not, of course. And the folks back there have something I wish we had here — fireflies. It kills me that kids here miss out on that delightful phenomenon of summer.

Boy, if I had it do over again, I'd never ever put one in a jar.
