Last word on gov debate

This came from colleage Erik P. Smith of the Washington Wire, a former Spokesman-Review reporter and Spokane resident, who covered the AWB debates.

How fitting, he said, that candidates for Washington governor and attorney general were debating at The Bing Crosby Theater.

Because, he said, that used to be the State Theater.

It's true only some old time Spokanites would get that connection, since the Bing was the Met after it was the State.

And real old timers, such as  his grandmother, insisted on calling it the Klemmer Theater, Smith said.
