The Slice

If A therefore B

We all know that many people in the Spokane area crave hot weather.

And those temperatures are said to be on their way.

So does it therefore follow that Spokane, not Disneyland, is about to be the happiest place on Earth?

People here are about to get what they say they want, after all. Shouldn't we expect them to be blissed out?

Or does this yearning for sizzling temps only apply if the person in question is engaged in water recreation?

Maybe it's not all that swell if you are taking part in those pursuits that do not involve swimming or boating.

“Woo-hoo! It's going to be 98 and I'm going to be stuck in traffic in a car that doesn't have AC on my way to a job at an office with stagnant air! Par-tay!”

Of course, many here have been brainwashed into believing that everyone spends virtually every summertime moment in the throes of lake-based frolic.

Pay no attention to those actual population/leisure activities statistics behind the curtain.
