A ticket to demise

State B basketball lured us to Spokane a few weeks ago and presented a chance to dump cash downtown. Our family loves Huppin’s, so we left our paid parking at the Arena to pay for parking across from the locally owned electronics store. We found the perfect plasma screen in minutes. Farmer Todd left me to pay for the television, and pulled our rig to the loading zone in front of Huppin’s.

Have I built the story up, enough? Yup, before we could get our $2,000 gadget loaded up and head back to the Palouse, a diligent meter-maid slapped a parking ticket on the windshield of our Excursion.

This leaves little doubt, despite its 100-year legacy, why the Huppin family will say goodbye to your downtown core.
