Being surprised by a person’s vehicle

I think that happens here slightly more often than the national average.

Some of us tend to think conservatives drive certain kinds of cars while liberals prefer others. And there might be some broad-brush truth to that.

But perhaps a case could be made that Spokane area residents' enthusiasm for outdoor recreation skews reality away from the stereotypes. A fair number of people here choose vehicles to suit their lifestyle, not their political self-image.

I suppose that's true to an extent all over. But Spokane isn't always like everywhere else.

I've lived here more than 20 years, and I'm still not used to the idea of self-proclaimed progressives playing golf.
