That Fox prediction worked out OK

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. Today’s sampling:

FROM 2003:

Slice Predictions:

1. The Fox Theater project will work out somehow.

2. The Children’s Museum of Spokane will become nationally recognized.

3. Voter turnout next month will be underwhelming.

FROM 1999:

Potential catch phrases for a Spokane action/adventure hero:

1. “Does this hurt?”

2. “Well, OK then.”

3. “You’re goin’ to the lake, pal.”

4. “It’s a little spendy.”

5. “Not from around here?”

6. “Great place to raise welts.”

7. “You’ll love it here.”

8. “All you can eat, baby.”

9. “How about half off that?”

10. “Time to burn some grass.”

FROM 1997:

That bra belonged to someone else: In her review of a recent Sammy Hagar concert, the Swell Paper’s Winda Benedetti mentioned that a woman attending the show presented the rock singer with a pair of red panties and a matching bra. He hung them on his microphone stand.

Benedetti subsequently received an e-mail from a reader who wanted to set the record straight: “The panties were mine but not the bra.”
