TGIF Wild Card — 9.9.11

As hard as it is to believe, today is my 27th anniversary with the Spokesman-Review. I arrived here Sept. 9, 1984, to be a short-term cops & courts reporter under bureau chief Doug Clark. Then, I spent nine years as a local government reporter & 13 years on the Editorial Board before this online gig expanded to become a full-time job. That pretty much sums things up. Still some mileage left in the tank. So I'll push the reminiscing aside and get on to today's work by posting this Wild Card ...
