The Slice

Spokane would be even whiter if...

...there had never been an Air Force base here.

That's the contention of longtime Slice reader Tim Wink. (He was responding to a question in the print column about how this area would be different if there had never been a base here.)

It would be difficult to dispute Tim's assertion.

The military has long played a big role in shuffling the nation's demographic deck. Not everybody likes that, of course. But those folks who don't can go to hell.

If you spend part of your life defending America, I think you can pretty much live wherever you want when you get out of the service.
