Hopefully it becomes an "one door closes another open" story.. Good luck to a great and greatly needed organization.

Re: “Killing Truth

When some person or entity is "notorious", it is (by definition) so well known and flagrant about something that nobody disputes whatever characterization is made...such as a notorious criminal gang that operates in a specific neighborhood.

To describe the Birch Society as "notoriously anti-Catholic" is absurd in three respects:

1. Nobody except this author thinks the JBS is "anti-Catholic"
2. Approximately 40% of JBS membership and 2/3 of its original office staff in Belmont MA (its HQ) was Catholic and two Catholic priests served on the JBS National Council (the governing body of the JBS).
3. The only official government investigation ever conducted into the JBS was a 2-year investigation by the California Senate Factfinding Subcommittee on Un-American Activities, This Subcommittee was controlled by Democrats who were allied with the then-Governor of California (Edmund G. "Pat" Brown, a Catholic). Significantly, they never found any anti-Catholic bias within the Birch Society -- even though several Catholics were members of that Subcommittee.

Consequently, we must conclude that Bill Cope is a notoriously ignorant and bigoted individual.

Re: “JUMP, Explained (Somewhat)

I wish Mr. Simplot had bestowed upon Boise something more vital and lasting than an oddly designed building where cooking classes and fingerpainting are taught. His millions might have helped endow a proper public transit system for this community, or a decent baseball stadium that might have helped revitalize downtown and given the youth of the community a center for athletics. He might have helped connect Boise to the West Coast by high speed rail line or underwritten much-needed historic preservation. Instead, we got a modernist structure and a tractor museum where -- years after ground was first broken -- no one can still seem to figure out what it really is.

And I'm sorry, the very fact that there are college ratings of who is hottess is appalling. I'm sure Jesus would be so proud.

Re: “BYU-Idaho Bans 'Man Buns' On Campus

@Amy Weir
Clearly you are the moron here, considering the title of this article clearly says BYU-Idaho. As in BYU-I in Rexburg, Idaho.

Also, it is clear that his grammar, spelling, and correct use of punctuation is far superior than your own. Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

I hope there's areas geared more towards children. It would be nice to have a playroom for them!


Also is there a date set? Or maybe a month? Or even a year set?!?!

Re: “Mr. Cope's Cave: Stupid, Mean-Spirited, Malignant Things Gun Nuts Do

Gee, don't know what trial you attended. George Zimmerman did none of the things you described, except justifiably kill someone who was attacking him with life threatening blows. The Trayvon Martin was an innocent angel crowd perverted the justice system in Florida, and stupid rants like yours continue to do so. I am quite sure there are many facets of your character that are as distasteful as his. And, by the way, your writing sucks.

Re: “Boise Set to Renew Contract to House Suspects at Ada County Jail

Interesting that inmates also pay $35 per day. That's a gross profit of $105 per inmate per day, plus "booking fee". Seems that locking people up is a very lucrative business. Though, it was my understanding, that it's illegal to profit off of crime, in any way.

$70 per inmate, per day. In the real world, that's the price of a nice hotel room and a couple of modest meals. Considering the conditions in jail; poor quality food, threadbare bedding and then add in the profit from commissary, phone calls, SILD program et al, it seems to me that the Sheriff's office is making a pretty penny at the expense of the tax payer, the City of Boise and those who find themselves on the unfortunate side of the law, without giving much back in return.

Once upon a time, they called this brigandry but it seems sometimes, that words lose their meaning.

The jail houses 1,217 inmates. Jail deputies also run alternative sentencing programs like work release, labor detail, and community service, all at a fee for those convicted.
