  • Craig Decision Delayed

    It looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer to find out the fate of Sen. Larry Craig’s political future.

    A Minnesota judged continued a hearing as to whether Craig can withdraw his guilt plea until at least next week, stating that he is taking the matter under advisement.

  • This Week In Larry Craig

    And the hits keep on coming.

    That silence you heard this weekend was the sound of U.S. Sen. Larry Craig not resigning, as had been his intent.

    That puff of smoke you didn't see coming from the Borah Post Office was the sign that Gov. Otter had not named a replacement for Craig.

    Inside, more Craig doings: The impeachment movement is afoot, we've entered the urban lexicon, and a new political ad featuring a bathroom is just plain painful.

  • Traffic Woes

    Ah, game day—the thrill, the competition, the traffic. With a 5:30 p.m. kick-off time, tonight’s Boise State game promises some headaches for anyone trying to get around downtown.

    The Boise Police Department is asking commuters to avoid Broadway and Vista avenues and Capitol Boulevard this evening if possible, and to expect heavy traffic throughout the area.

  • All About Idaho

    Idaho is back in the headlines—although this time it has nothing to do with a certain senator in a bathroom.

  • Khet

    Everybody loves the laser pointer. Who among us has held one without being told to "quit playing with that thing!" Three engineers from Tulane University in Louisiana have managed to combine work with play and created Khet, the first board game that I know of that utilizes the special properties of the laser.
