The Slice

Days of Future Passed

No doubt you would observe it more often in cities where a higher percentage of commuters rely on mass transit and can read on their way to work.

But every once in a while, you see it in Spokane: A guy who knows how to walk with a newspaper tucked under one arm. It's a classic look.

Let's call it effortless style.

It's certainly not a strut. And it is not really any sort of statement about the trend arrows of information technology. It's just a subtle little sign that the pedestrian in question has something on his mind.

The are other ways to suggest that, of course. But I can't think of many that are so utterly unforced, so unpretentious.

Some things change. Some don't.
