"My husband and I were at the food court at Northern Quest Casino," wrote Judy Tierney. "A man left his coat on a chair. An hour later he came looking for it. It was right where he had left it.
"When he retrieved it, he said to his buddy, 'I knew it would still be here. The people of Spokane are too honest or too dumb to take it.'"
But Tierney has another theory.
Maybe not everyone around here yearns to have a Mariners jacket.
