The Slice

Passing the torch

Chances are, you have heard the classic Spokane story about some long-ago S-R subscriber calling the circulation department to complain about the paper boy loudly whistling early in the morning.

That paper boy, of course, was a young Bing Crosby.

Well, I wonder. Are there descendants of that disgruntled newspaper subscriber still in Spokane? What do you suppose they complain about in 2013?
