  • Spuds & Duds 2006

    The year started off in the wake of the Indian Ocean tsunami tragedy. We lost one pope and got a new one. The country lost New Orleans. More and more U.S. servicemen lost their lives in the Middle East fighting America's war on terrorism. Idaho's National Guard came back home. Boise Weekly moved to swanky new offices. Yes, it's been a busy year. We take this time every year in our annual Spuds and Duds issue to reflect, not with top 10 lists or warm-fuzzy retrospectives, but with a look back on the things that deserve a spud and things that deserve a dud. Whether it deserves a "woo-hoo" or a "boo-hoo" depends entirely upon your perspective, but our staff, assisted by the wordsmith Mr. Bill Cope, has addressed the issues that rubbed us the right way or wrong way in 2005. And if I may say so, 2006 is shaping up to be a banner year for potential spuds and duds already.

  • Lingo Yarns
  • C-spanning

    The other day I woke up at 4 a.m. This isn't an abnormal occurrence. Occasionally, after a full night of beverages, I rise in the middle of the night for a little bladder relief. Only this night I couldn't get back to sleep. So what is there to do at 4 a.m.? Uninterested in infomercials, I watched C-Span.
