I was walking back to the office to change into my bike clothes and ride home after this afternoon's Flying Irish run when I saw a Spokane Police bicycle officer on the sidewalk near the entrance to River Park Square. Post Street was blocked off and full of classic cars. An older couple--okay, they were probably around my age--was crossing Main Street from Red Robin. There was no traffic coming down Main at the time.
I heard someone say, "Hey! Hey!" I turned around and the bike cop was addressing the couple who just crossed the street. He pointed at the "Don't Walk" sign and asked them, "Can you tell me what that sign says?"
You'd think by now the police department would hire cops that can read.
