Re: “Are Boise rents too high?

I'm not sure if it's the rent that is too high, or if the wages are too low. Other places have much higher rent, but Idaho leads the nation in minimum wage jobs so it probably doesn't make much of a difference.

Re: “UPDATE: Meridian Teen Acquitted in Boise Hit and Run

Joyce, don't be a pig. If JT had left the scene of the accident and injured someone, he would have fine EXACTLY what Thackery did, but he would have gotten a misdemeanor instead of a citation plus the felony. Does that seem fair to you? Take away the fleeing part of Thackery's accident and he gets off with a traffic ticket for running a red light and injuring someone. JT causes no injuries and gets charged as a criminal with a misdemeanor?

Re: “Stop the Presses: Blogger Rips the Idaho Statesman a New One

The Idaho Statesman is akin to all major news channels here in that it operates as though the main duty of journalism is to report "what people are saying" instead of whether what people are saying is factually accurate or honest. “Journalism is the only profession explicitly protected by the U.S. Constitution, because journalists are supposed to be the check and balance on government. We're supposed to be holding those in power accountable. We're not supposed to be their megaphone. That's what the corporate media have become.”
