School Backpack Epidemic in the Spokesman


Those reading the Spokesman-Review lately would be forgiven for thinking that school backpacks are crushing our children.

Before today's story by Adrian Rodgers, the paper picked up one by the Washington Post on Aug. 31. And they printed another one by Pia Hallenberg on Aug. 22. And, according to the paper's archives, they have yet another story on the issue, dated Sept. 5 by Rainey Coffin.

(Don't ask me how the paper's website can see into the future.)
