@alternateHere's Part II...Pullman:*
Lowest violent crime in the state. * Third-lowest crime rate in the state.
Take out Greek Row and it's the lowest in the state BY FAR.* 14th
highest median household income, just ahead of Bellevue.* Low
unemployment.* Second-highest number of parks per capita in the state,
among incorporated cities.* Great schools with good test scores, low class
sizes, and no teaching shortages.* High community service involvement
numbers.* Responsive city government, with mayor in fourth termI'm glad you flippantly chose to deride Pullman because it didn't
have the 'Zags. Like I said, I love 'Zags basketball.Oh,
we also have a Pac-12 football team in Pullman. Does Spokane have that? No, it
has Stateline.I rest my case.
@alternate I think you opened up a can of worms by trumping up Spokane while
dragging down Pullman. Unfortunately, it is completely unwarranted and your
narrative was spun by a kindergartner wearing rose-colored glasses. But,
let's deal in data, shall we?Spokane:* Third
highest crime rate in the state.* Highest violent crime rate in the
state.* Highest auto theft in the state.* Highest prostitution rate
in the state.* Highest STI rate in the state.* Second highest
teenage pregnancy in the state.* Third highest meth USE rate in the
state.* Third highest homeless population in state.* Sixty-third in
household income.* Higher-than-state average in unemployment.*
Unresponsive city government, by most accounts.* Number of parks per
capita in the lower-third in state among incorporated cities.*
Middle-of-the-road schools w/ high class sizes and large teaching shortages.Yes, I love 'Zags basketball. But that doesn't make up for
other Spokane nastiness. So, before throwing out insults about Pullman,
let's just examine the facts!Part II forthcoming.
Washington State is in Pullman and in no way should get mixed up with Spokane, a
much more beautiful city and home of Gonzaga.
True pac10.2 fans.....they don't even know what cities have PAC 10.2 teams.
Feliz is spot on about Crissy.alternate, WSU is in Pullman and not
Spokane. WSU has a great academic programs. Just thought you should know.
Ivy league education versus football for a team with logn history of losing
football games. Sorry Chris, but a dream of playing for teams with losing
records are just that! Dreams!Spokane is a beautiful city, and I am
sure Wash St is a nice school, but there is no question that the chance for an
excellent education is diminished.
Chis B I'm a big Utah fan but I must admit you have a very bad case of
little man's syndrome.
Dreams of playing in the Pac 12?Good choice.Sorry
WAC/MWC/indy teams - no one dreams of that
