Letter from the Editor
More often than had been foreseen when we started this publication, we get a lot of people making comments or asking questions about trying to give the Inlander some competition or run the 7 out of business or some other such nonsense. We find it pretty ridiculous, really, as we’ve always been of the opinion tthat there’s a lot more going on in Spokane than is usually recognized and the more print media voices a town has, the better it is for the community.
But we draw the line when you mess with Chuck Norris.
In last week’s issue of The Inlander, those cheeky bastards had the audacity to suggest that Chuck Norris is a wimp, simply because he refused to pummel a homeless person.
You fools! As if Chuck Norris has any need whatsoever to prove himself by beating up a mere mortal. Come on, the guy had 58 kills in Vietnam and he wasn’t even there, you think he really needs to take on one unarmed Spokanite to make himself feel better.
We’re talking about Chuck Norris here. The guy that can clog a toilet when he takes a piss. The guy that once roundhouse kicked a dollar bill into 200 nickels. The Inlander should thank their lucky stars that Chuck Norris doesn’t read; he just stares down books until he gets the information he wants. Otherwise, he might take offense at these inappropriate accusations and the Spokane community would be deprived of that voice forevermore.
Anyway, we clearly have nothing of value to add. Enjoy the paper. And check out our website if you get a chance (www.spokanesidekick.com). It’s got info and links to pretty much every local band and venue, and is a ridiculously cross-referenced resource that makes it easy to find out what your live entertainment options are in Spokane. Plus, we’ve recently added a video podcast (see page 10), a webstore, bolstered our archives and improved or introduced a bunch of other cool shit.
