The Slice

We need to do more to promote the falls

That's what Slice reader Meredith Elsensohn says. And I agree with her.

How many cities have a cataract of that magnitude right downtown?

This isn't the first time Meredith has shared that opinion with me. On April 3, 2007, The Slice column noted her feelings on this subject.

But to find my all-time favorite column contribution from Meredith, we have to go back to Jan. 13, 2001.

Here it is:

Some kids don't really understand the difference between old and really old.

Meredith Elsensohn is in her mid-70s. And while volunteering at Pasadena Park Elementary School in the Spokane Valley, a boy in the third grade asked her a question.

He wondered if she had known Abraham Lincoln.
