Clark wounds shooters

In reference to Doug Clark’s detractors, whereas: I still miss Milt Priggee, former political cartoonist and satirist (biting wit) for The Spokesman-Review, who said it was “his job to ride in after the battle and shoot the wounded.”

Whereas: I think ol’ Doug Clark actually likes good ol’ Spokaloo, after all it affords him a good living, a place to show off his good ol’ Vista guzzler, a place to ply his musical talents, or lack thereof, by raising money for charity with his annual street music fest (including all musicians in this community event to benefit Second Harvest).

Whereas: I think it’s Doug Clark’s job to ride in after the fray and wound the shooters and baton wielder.
