How do you react when you encounter that expression?
A) I know it's a put-down. I know that it suggests phony, surface-level friendliness that covers up deep suspicion and mistrust, but I just don't think it is especially true here. B) I think the speaker or writer probably isn't aware that it is a blatant rip-off of "Minnesota Nice," which has been around for 40 years. C) I know some define it as forced hyper-collaboration that winds up preventing anyone from having the power to make a decision, but I don't see it as a real problem here. D) I scoff. Spokane has its problems, but people worrying too much about hurting others' feelings isn't one of them. E) Those who say that are the same people call Spokane a Cow Town. What cows? Where? When? F) Yes, of course, We're the only place where there is some insincerity built into social interactions. G) Other.
