The Slice

Four on the floor

1. As I seem to mention every year, a Top 10 episode of “The Twilight Zone” first aired on this date in 1962. Called “The Hunt,” its small cast included a guy who now lives next to Audubon Park and a woman married to a man from Spokane.

2. Remember, in 1987's “Broadcast News,” when Tom gives Aaron that tip about sitting on the tail of your suit jacket when at the anchor desk to give your shoulders a clean, crisp line? Sure. Well, how often do you find yourself thinking someone on TV needed that exact advice? To me, the worst offender is PBS “NewsHour” commentator Mark Shields. His jacket is almost always ridiculously bunched up. Makes him look like a turtle.

3. Had lunch today at a Spokane assisted living facility. A retired nun at the next table offered a critique of the Spokane Chiefs' power play.

4. Some drivers who definitely do not regard themselves as SUV people can nonetheless recall thinking the Jeep Cherokee had a certain appeal 30 years ago. Are there any of those still on the road in Spokane?
