|People line up in downtown
Spokane last week to buy
the newest iPhone.
So you can line up for two days to buy an iPhone but you can’t line up for a few minutes to catch the bus? That’s the premise of Shawn Vestal’s article in today’s Spokesman-Review article accusing the downtown Spokane business community of elitism when it comes to the Spokane Transit Authority Plaza.
Here’s the article. Check it out and let me know if you have any thoughts on the topic.
I read that article and I think he hit it very good, it is OK if you are lining up with money in your hand, but they are they sure no one at the plaza has any money?
This Saturday night in front of the Fox will be lines as people line up for the Symphony, how much will you bet no one will complain about the sidewalk being blocked?
The Symphony is a good example of something that happens fairly often and requires a line, yet no one complains. I get that panhandlers can be a pain. Especially at the building where we work. I come in and out of the building several times a day and get hit up EVERY SINGLE TIME for money. But at a place like the Plaza where people are actually hanging out for a reason (waiting to catch the bus), the Sit-Lie Law doesn't seem to have any teeth.
