Kootenai County, reddest county in the reddest state in the nation. Shoot first; ask questions later.
I think it sounds like the city and the "Downtown Parking" company are in cahoots with one motive and multiple goals. The motive is greed. The goals are to: 1) Send more cars to the parking garages and off the streets, eventually raising the rates of the parking garages, too; 2) Discourage driving downtown, possible with the goal of building those street cars; and 3) Make money hand-over-fist from the people who HAVE to go downtown for work or other reasons. I can tell you this, I have significantly decreased my trips downtown since I moved away from the North End/Downtown area, and if I know I have to pay for parking on Saturdays or evenings when I do go, I will probably only go downtown if forced. I am sorry for the businesses, but I'd be sorrier if they bothered to protest.
It was the only music station I listened to on the radio. I will not be tuning in to hear all those weird radicals yammer their insanity on the radio. I will be plugging in my iPod or listening to NPR. This does totally suck.
I am disappointed. I love flying SW to Seattle, and I hope the number of flights increases again. I hate over-booked flights!
In-N-Out forced College In-N-Out (sp?), a burger joint that used to be right next to Boise State, to change its name back in the 90's. I can't remember what the new name was, but it wasn't big In-N-Out that forced College In-N-Out to fold, and eventually to be leveled. I hope In-N-Out will allow these people to change their color scheme and logo, but really, what did they expect? Those logos are extremely similar, and that had to be deliberate. The timing of the letter is admittedly bad, considering the death of Mrs. Squillace, but In-N-Out does have to protect the brand.
Killadelphia was really, really good. At once funny, tragic, thoughtful and thought-provoking. I highly recommend it!
I have to quibble with the pronunciation of a few of the words here.
1. Even locals disagree about the pronunciation of "Chinden." Personally, I hear "Chinden" with the hard "ch" more often than "shin-den," and I say "Chinden," too.
2. Locals say "koot-nee." They drop the middle syllable.
3. I'm not sure people know how to say "Phillippi," but most know what you're talking about when you say "phil-ih-pee."
4. People I have met who live on Resseguie have said "rezi-gyoo-ee."
Didn't anyone else notice these discrepencies?
