  • A Guber Gets Picked for the Interior

    Our Google news alerts for "Idaho" went bonkers last week with a fury that hasn't been seen since President Bush visited Nampa. Heck, there were nearly as many hits as when news of Erotic City's "Art Night" got picked up the international media (but not quite as many). And the cause of the spike was our very own Dirk Kempthorne, who has finally combed and cooed his way out of Boise and into the Presidential cabinet. Among the national media editorials, the consensus on Kempthorne's nomination is a resounding and predictable, "Meh." They say he's a nice guy, and he rides a cool motorcycle, but his track record of anti-roadless area, anti-ESA and pro-development actions stick out like a mine site in a wilderness area.
