    Somebody go find Larry Grant. He's got company if he's really serious about running at first-term Congressman Bill Sali again.

    Well, he's not alone.

  • Where You Gonna Go?

    You've probably been to a unisex bathroom; plenty of office buildings have them.

    But, lest we relax our vigilance in the Culture Wars, Bryan Fischer of the Idaho Values Alliance is on top of the bathroom situation at Boise State.

    For several weeks, Fischer has been in a semantic struggle with Boise State officials over just what to call the bathrooms that are open to both men and women.

    What if, he posits, those were open to transgender students?

    With update: Details inside.
