  • Legislative Session in Four Hours

    Call this taking one for the team: A few of us caught a preview screening of State Legislature, the new documentary by Frederick Wiseman, which recounts his exhaustive coverage of the 2004 session of the Idaho Legislature.

    At four hours long, it's a commitment. But for aficionados of Idaho politics, there's nothing finer.

    Favorite scenes: Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis tearing into Laird Maxwell; Dan Popkey criticizing his own paper's "bad editorial judgment," and certain lawmakers showing how the years have actually been very, very kind.

  • North Dakota Snakes Our Cuba Deal

    After all that fuss over Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter's trip to Cuba this spring, it looks like we might get the rug yanked out from under us by some wily North Dakotans.

    Roger Johnson, the commissioner for agriculture for North Dakota, told BW this morning that his state has a verbal agreement to sell 100 tons of North Dakota potatoes to Cuba.

    Sneaky! (New West picked up on this first.)

  • Four Emmys for Idaho Public TV

    Idaho Public Television snared four Northwest Regional Emmy Awards.

    Two episodes of "Outdoor Idaho" each snared one of the awards. And "D4K: Dialogue For Kids," a science call-in show for kids, and "D4K: Web Extra" garnered one each.

    We saw the statues last night. They're purty.
