The Slice

Could an Expo '74 happen today?

Had lunch with a longtime friend I hadn't actually met in person until today.

He moved here to take a job in 1972. And we got to talking about what it was like to be in Spokane just before Expo '74.

My friend doesn't think something on the magnitude of the fair would ever get the green-light here today. Sure, money would be an issue. But also the demonizing of the power-brokers would be so wall-to-wall that the possibility of community cohesiveness seems inconceivable.
