Re: “Do you agree with Gov. Otter that the U.S. should halt its refugee resettlement program pending review?

The web-poll is a variant on mob rule, so take it with a grain of salt. For those augmenting their yes votes with a comment with caps lock on, well, "nuff said." As for helping veterans and homeless, actions speak louder than your keyboard, and can certainly be taken regardless of how we continue with the refugee program.

Re: “UPDATE: Christian Group Cries Foul When Boise State Student Newspaper Says 'No' to Ad For Creationism Event

Bully for the editors. There is no upside to creationism nonsense. It had some entertainment value for a while, but it's time to move on.

Re: “U.S. Court Judge Strikes Down Idaho Ag-Gag Law: 'The Remedy is More Speech, Not Enforced Silence'

The Memorandum Decision and Order says the entire statue is invalidated: "the Court finds that § 18-7042 violates the First Amendment right to free speech. In addition, the Court finds that § 18-7042 violates the Equal Protection Clause because it was motivated in substantial part by animus towards animal welfare groups, and because it impinges on free speech, a fundamental right."

Re: “Central Addition: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

It's an interesting image featured with the story. It would be nice to have an attribution, both for the original, and for the "quilted" derivative work.

Re: “ALEC in Idaho: BW Reveals That One of ALEC's Top National Officers Works in the Gem State

The ALEC promo/puff piece with Jeff Thompson is sort of interesting. I noticed that the q and a around "What makes Idaho so attractive?" was at the level of chamber of commerce/real estate boosterism, and founded on the erroneous inference that since people are moving here from elsewhere, we must be doing something right. As compared to... well, we're not digging in that far.

Re: “What Lies Beneath

Article IV, Section 9 of the Idaho Constitution provides for "extra" (then "extraordinary") sessions, with "no power to legislate on any subjects other than those specified in the proclamation."

Re: “Emily Walton

Thanks for featuring Emily, and thanks to Emily for being feature-worthy. As for the b.s. question about "fairness in a heartbeat," if you're going to report in Idaho, you really ought to know something about the context, George.
