Note to drivers: Be careful out there

On your commute Monday and Tuesday, it will be very important to keep an eye out for an extra traffic hazard.


They will be everywhere, waving signs and trying to convince the remaining voters that have yet to decide how to fill in those little ovals for all the races that they are the correct choice.

As if all the yard signs, billboards and mailers weren't enough.

For example, U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers and GOP gubernatorial hopeful Dino Rossi will be at Division and Ruby between 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. Monday, probably flanked by some supporters. Try to slow down as you cross the Sen. Sam Guess Bridge.

(It's doubtful that Sam Guess ever stood on a street corner and waved a sign, but I can't be sure.)

This is a very common campaign tactic in Spokane.
