Re: “Baguette Deli

Some of the best french bread in the city, good crunchy fresh veggies, great variety of meats and fillings for the sandwiches. I think they could put a little more meat in their sandwiches. Yes the price is good, sort of, but you aren't comparing apples to apples. Other sandwich places have bigger bread and more stuff on it.

Still, I'm only taking it down one star for that issue. A top notch place. I've been eating there since they opened their first store at the Fred Meyer on Orchard.

Also, that bread is under $1.50 a loaf. Take it home and just use it as fresh bread for dinner. I make a beef po-boy sandwich that is a lot like a french dip that is absolutely fantastic on this bread.

Re: “Dunkley Music Sounds Its Final Note; Boise Icon Becomes Rubble

The tracks in the alley weren't from the street car line. There used to be a freight train line that came downtown. Part of the old railroad bed was made into a section of Greenbelt that goes from CHF on Orchard to the railroad trestle near Shoreline Park. I know that track went at least as far as the Front 5 building that now houses Concordia Law school.

Re: “Bike Lane Stakeholder Meeting, Round 2

So, here is something for the stakeholders to chew on. There is a clearly marked bike lane on Bannock. It's a good one. Clearly visible to the bicyclists and the motorists. I never, ever see anyone using it. It's a ghost town.

I see lot's of bicycles locked up around downtown, I see lot's of people riding in different places. The lane is built, and no one came. Why?

I am not anti bike lane. I love the idea. On the flip side it's just a huge waste of time and precious resources if we build these lanes and they don't get used.

Another quick question I would love to have someone knowledgable answer. I have heard it said that city planners want to keep cars out of downtown areas because they are hard to deal with. How much does it cost for a car trip and parking in the downtown core? Where is the breaking point where is makes fiscal sense to take out a very expensive car lane to replace it with a bike lane? Do the counts we got out of the last experiment even come close? What about the counts on the established bike lane on Bannock?

Re: “Report: Boosting Minimum Wage Creates More Jobs, Not Less

I have heard it argued that while it may look like the stimulus didn't accomplish anything because the recover numbers suck anyway, that it really did because the numbers would have been worse without the stimulus. I wouldn't venture even further to say that most of the staff of BW would make that argument. There is no possible way to know if it's true or not. In a similar fashion I will now make that argument that Washington State would have expanded jobs even faster without an increase in the minimum wage.

Re: “Video: BYU-Idaho Produces Video, Comparing Masturbation to War

This seems a misleading title. Masturbation isn't mentioned, porn addiction is.

As far as the war imagery is concerned, it's a common "christianese" metaphor that usually implies that Christians tend to judge and "kill" (drive away) their "wounded" (living a self destructive life style) instead of offering a helping hand. It's ok not to get it, this video was obviously meant for insiders.

Re: “Pour-Over Coffee

Seems just as easy to make an Americano, or just use my aeropress at home. Still, it's great that people are starting to have more respect for their coffee. It's so much better when a little bit of effort is put into making it.

Re: “Eyes on the Prize

Either Don Keller was misquoted, or he misspoke concerning the existence of other IB schools in the Idaho. There are two other IB schools here in the valley, one is private, and one is a magnet school in the Meridian School District. Sage is the only IB charter school in Idaho.

Re: “Video: Scalia Draws Parallel Between Homosexuality and Murder

Yo, morons, take a reading comprehension course and come back. What he said was that murder and homosexual sex are the same in the way that neither is specifically addressed by the constitution, that both are left up to legislation to decide. It's a legal position, not a moral equivalency. No different than saying that J-walking and eating ice cream aren't addressed by the constitution.
