Slice-meister Paul Turner is taking some time off this month, but don’t despair: In his absence, we’re rerunning some of the tastier tidbits from this date in Slice history:
R.I.P. Mac: The Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture’s unofficial mascot has passed away.
A friendly yellow cat who wore a bell and liked to flop down in front of people, Mac helped supervise construction of the museum and was a friend to many staffers.
As his name predated the museum calling itself “The MAC,” the cat’s owners enjoyed claiming that the Browne’s Addition landmark was actually named after their pet.
A friend was in Montana for a reunion when he saw this sign inside the door of a restaurant: “Please check guns and cell phones.”
Beep, beep, beeeeeeep: How many personal electronic gizmos have been dropped in area lakes this summer?
Today’s Slice question: In what way, other than the fact that people didn’t run around yelling “stat,” was your hospital stay most unlike a primetime TV drama?
