“Do you ever glance at something and read it quickly…and get it wrong?” wrote Jim Markley. “At the very top of today's Spokesman is a headline that begins, 'Country crooner to play…'
“When I took a quick glance at it this morning, I thought, at first, that it said 'County coroner to play…'
“Who knew that Spokane had a crooning coroner?”
Jim Malm had a similar stumble.
“After a quick glance at the top of the front page this morning, I was wondering just what kind of show the county coroner was going to put on at the Arena. I was relieved to later discover that it was actually a 'country crooner' putting on the show.”
