Paul Turner’s Slice column will return Thursday, but until then, here’s a final sampling of some of the tastier tidbits from this date in Slice history:
Say it, don’t spray it: If you’d rather not utter the phrase “Pig Out in the Park” or even “Pig Out,” there’s always the lyrical acronym, “POITP.”
Today is the anniversary of the first lawyer moving to Spokane.
According to a passage in an old history book a friend shared with us, one J. Kennedy Stout arrived in town on Sept. 1, 1881. Within a matter of days, he was on the city payroll.
So now the question is this: How should modern-era residents acknowledge that historic occasion?
a) Refer to Sept. 1 as a date “that shall live in infamy.”
b) Reserve Riverfront Park for the annual Billable Hours Fest.
c) Sue someone you love.
d) Name every child born in Spokane on Sept. 1 either Tort or Fees.
Back-to-school tip: Remember, you are practically invisible because just about everybody else is incredibly self-conscious, too.
