District not ready for name

I had to chuckle after reading Shawn Vestal’s front page April 3 article on West Main. If you have to search for a “moniker” of a city’s district, then it obviously hasn’t been around long enough to make much of an impact. Besides, it’s barely two blocks long! The next thing you know, the writer will be asking for a naming contest.

Anything distinct, unique or worth noting about an area of town will eventually garner a name for itself. Otherwise, enough of the comparisons to other city districts (Portland, Coeur d’Alene or Seattle). This only confirms Spokane’s “wannabe” image.
