I think Representative Malek is refreshingly honest and while some may not agree with his views, it is nice to have an elected official that is consistent and open. What a great addition to the Idaho legislature.
Nothing like an honest article to make a person's ignorance shine
"Having been a prosecutor, I know what a farce medical marijuana is. This campaign to legalize medical marijuana is a predatory campaign by the drug cartels."
What? If marijuana were legalized, the price would drop, therefore put the drug cartels out of business. The only people profiting by the current legal status of this plant are the cops and the criminals. Medical marijuana is only a "farce" because the recreational use of it, being illegal, determines the price of medical marijuana. If this plant were to be made fully legal, it has been estimated that the price for an ounce would drop from hundreds of dollars to tens of dollars, if that. Proposition 19 in California was defeated, not only by police lobbyists, but also by the pot growers in the "Emerald Triangle" in northern California, whose livelihoods depend on the stuff being illegal. http://www.motherjones.com/mojo/2010/11/stoners-against-legalization-3-most-pot-friendly-counties-cali-reject-prop-19 . Way to go, Mr. Malek, you are in the same league as the "cartels" you think you oppose.
Pot can grow hair back, just saying
I would like to find out who to contact about the lousy care i was given at Saint Al's in Ontario Oregon. My blood was drawn and i asked for my iron to be tested the lady drawing my blood told me my iron would be checked but when results were back i was informed they did not do any tests to check my iron. Last night i was hospitalized because my iron was extremely low that it caused my health to become worse. The 1st time i went in was because of suicial thoughts mind you. So whom shall I speak to?
amazing article! thanks !
I wish her the best. She's brave optimistic soul in the shark environment of The Idaho Legislature. The idealist in me wants it to be different for our young democratic freshman. The realist in me worries about them.
Byron, you will be long remembered. Your intelligence and wit, your elegance and demeanor. A story teller and a friend, a great man to the end. Thanks for sharing your wisdom and your hot buttered rum. Much love and respect.
Got get 'em Holli!
I believe the exact location of the Oregon trail through Boise should be marked with signage
every 1/4 mile or so.
I'd lke to help with that project. In 1965 when I arrived in Boise a detailed map of that trail existed in a CofC Brochure

Jerry Kramer will never get elected to the HOF. Nor does he deserve to be. He was very good, but not quite to HOF level. Now he's just too old. Sorry Alicia...spoiled baby!
"The truth is, we've been very disappointed by the food here. The sad part is that a large part of the public is OK with the face that the food in the Treasure Valley is overwhelmingly average." The Brick Oven Bistro was amazingly average, I won't miss this place, looking forward to something new!
She is a party to the Peace Prize that was given to Al Gore and the IPCC in 2007. The peace prize has also been given to the EU and the UN.
...a few Republican presidential candidates? Who were they? What did they say about climate change that was wrong? By the way, Dr Solomon is NOT a recipient of a Nobel Peace Prize. You can check that with the Nobel committee in Oslo.
Has anyone verified her claim to the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007?
They post on the internet that there are Attorneys in that office. There are no attorneys that work out of that office. She trys to pretend she is but is not. She charges like she has a degree and does not. Ended up paying her more than the attorney and she was never there on appointments and did very little. Demanded money she did not earn. her office is very dirty and just seems like a back alley kind of operation. I think she just found a way to take from her own people.
Not very nice comments about Madison, MIke. You would not be Chief of Police of Boise or anywhere without the Madison Police Department and the training and opportunities you had here.
I hope Rob eventually runs for other offices. I've met him several times through various activities, and he's just as nice as he could be, and just a great guy.
Yeah, abused.... I listen to music to actually listen to music. Not hear some priddle paddle from those two.. I am sure they are nice guys. Most of the positive commentators are either the DJs themselves or family members.
Thanks guys for rocking us out in the mornings and being “real” not some parody of late night TV host.
