  • Submerged: Part 7

    My friend sits out on his back deck, where he would normally be grilling the hamburgers. The tiny pool is ready for our kids. The fence is propped up with two-by-fours. The house is clean, the toys are on the shelves, ready for an onslaught of little hands. But our kids aren't there. Not only our kids—any kids. Usually, his street is filled with them.

  • Flying Pie Pizzaria

    Flying Pie will outlive us all. Long after the bomb drops, this institution will continue to toss the best pies in Boise (though they'll have to add "brains" to the ingredient list to appease their undead clientele).

  • Why I'm no longer a Republican

    Gary Glenn, Cheryl Crow, Dennis Mansfield, Henry Kulsnyk, Jerry Sweet and now Brandi Swindell. And this is just the short list. Why does the Republican Party in Idaho keep fostering one-note political candidates on us that have no real interest in public service, but are backed by the Republicans because they are considered electable on their extremist views?

  • Addiction

    Addiction is all around us. Whether you like it or not, our brains are wired to like one thing, over and over, a whole bunch. Most likely you'll never get sick of something you're addicted too--well, maybe a little. But you'll always come back, because it fills a need that your body and mind have grown to love. You'll most definitely get sick if you refrain from doing it. And that can be bad.
