Victory lap

Sometime back in the 1960s, a Republican senator from Vermont was said to have suggested a way to extricate the U.S. from the quagmire of Vietnam.

Declare that we have won and get out, said George Aiken.

And it is in that spirit that I am today announcing that my one-man campaign to get various miscreants and parolees to stop riding bicycles on downtown Spokane sidewalks has been a total triumph.

You will not see anyone violate the civic ordinance prohibiting same ever again.

No need to thank me. It was my pleasure.
