I started delivering the Spokesman-Review about 70 years ago, and I read it every day, even now. My dad read it also. He called it “that Republican Rag.” He worked in the Great Northern yard in Hillyard and was a strong union member. When I asked him why he read the S-R if it was so terrible, he said that there was still a lot of important stuff in there. That is true today, also.
I was still preparing a response to the anonymous endorsement of Cathy McMorris Rodgers when it was followed by the endorsement of Trump. In both cases, I could not believe that the author of these endorsements was reading his own newspaper.
Overall, I am happy with the Spokesman today. Rob Curley is doing a great job in delivering local news and providing special sections.
P.S., Wednesday’s (Oct. 28) editorial page was exemplary as was Rob Curley’s article.
(Editor’s note: Editorial endorsements are made by Spokesman-Review publisher Stacey Cowles)
