• So THAT'S What Gonzales Was Doing Here

      Never mind the protesters. Turns out U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales was sizing up a new hire when he visited Boise recently.

      Just got the announcement from Idaho's U.S. Attorney, Thomas Moss, that he was taking a position at the Justice Department, in Washington.

      He starts his new job Monday. How's that for moving fast! He'll run the Idaho office from Washington. Um, how's that again?

  • Update: Gonzales Shouted Out?

      What was supposed to be a press conference on the lawn of the Boise Community Center with U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, wasn't.

      Instead, about 100 protesters singing songs and chanting slogans against U.S. war crime policies appear to have drowned out Gonzales's interest in coming outside.

      Instead, one of Gonzales's staff appeared, to announce that the news conference would be moved inside, away from the crowd, for press only.

      "Coward!" shouted several in the crowd.

  • Hide the drugs!

      Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is a-coming to Boise. Does this make U.S. Attorney Thomas Moss nervous for his job?

      Nah. Gonzales is here to meet with the Treasure Valley Metro Anti-Gang Task Force at Fort Boise Community Center Tuesday morning.

      Should be interesting to see Gonzales, just after I've seen former U.S. Attorney David Iglesias, who had some choice things to say about his former bosses.

    (Most cash in a brown paper bag is acceptable)
      Today, for as long as I can keep it up, I intend to comment on things I think are very, very, very, very good ideas. Like No Child Left Behind. You may have heard of it. George Bush likes it, and so do I. I think it is a very, very, very good idea. I'll tell you why I think it's such a very good idea in a minute. But first, please stand by for a brief commercial announcement ...

    American gulags become permanent
      NEW YORK--A new documentary, Hitler's Hit Parade, runs 76 minutes without narration. Comprised entirely of archival footage, the film prompts its reviewers to remark upon Hannah Arendt's famous observation about the banality of evil. German troops subjugated Europe and shoved millions of people into ovens; German civilians went to the movies, attended concerts, and gossiped about their neighbors. People lived mundane, normal lives while their government carried out unspeakable monstrosities.
