The Five Spot: 5 things we dare you to ask Supreme Court in Tacoma

Newly sworn-in Washington State Supreme Court Justice Steven Gonzalez either waves or gives his Five Spot salute after being introduced at the Capitol in 2012. Gonzalez and his eight colleagues will bring their “live” court to Tacoma for one appearance Tuesday, which is four less shows than Garth Brooks recently performed here.

Five questions to ask Washington Supreme Court justices at their Tacoma road show (9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday at the University of Puget Sound, Schneebeck Concert Hall).

1 Why not bring in some Pierce County Superior Court judges as your opening act, to warm up the crowd a little?

2 Do you ever wear your black robe while driving to work so that you can go as fast as you want without worrying about a ticket?

3 After holding legislators in contempt of court for the McCleary school funding mess, and fining them $100,000 a day for the last two years, are things awkward for you at Capitol Christmas parties?

4 Can you do something about the ridiculous number of penalties the referees are calling against the Seahawks this season?

5 A question just for the men of the court: Do you prefer legal boxers or legal briefs?
