I’m pretty sure, if I could wish any punishment upon my enemies, I’d wish they deal with the Medicaid signup process…MORE

Friends By Any Other Name

Off the top of my head, I have 20 friends who are either gay or lesbian. Friends whom have invited me into their lives and whom I've invited into mine.  Friends. People who I've broken bread with. People who I've laughed and cried with. People who I've argued with. People. Some are Christian, some are…MORE

What Is The Reason?

Maybe I'm slow, but the thought just hit me like a ton of bricks while I was filling my gas tank for 1.79 a gallon: We've been lied to all this time! Why is gas so cheap? President's magic wand? New discovery of oil? Surplus of gasoline? Global relations? Is there a new found peace…MORE

Not So Funny

Over the past 4 years, I've had the opportunity to introduce Bill Cosby on stage at the Morrison Center for his last two concerts here in Boise. Like many of you, I grew up watching him on TV, his sitcoms, his cartoons, his standup, and listening to his records. I've had the opportunity to sit…MORE

First Snow Fall

Yeah it's cold, but it's snowing! I love the snow. It meant no more raking leaves and no more mowing the lawn. Snowball fights and sled riding with Dad down a hill, that to a 5 year old looked like Mt. Everest but in reality was only 20 feet tall. Hot cocoa, hot apple cider,…MORE

Poll Results

Once upon a time, I took an on-air political poll. When I relay the outcomes, I always am sure to include the term "non-scientific" because I do not focus on any particular age, income, gender or political demographics. All who call, e-mail and facebook are entered. Then I found out a political consultant spent over…MORE

Good Cop/Bad Cop?

From Idaho, to Missouri, to California, to Alabama, and in all states, there seems to be an ever growing "anti-cop" sentiment growing. I've heard prople judging Boise police for actions from officers in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, to, of course, dog shootings. Any missteps, law violations, or outright laziness should be vetted thoroughly by…MORE

Time For A Road Trip

There's something about the road.   For the past 2 months, I've been looking forward to my Cleveland Indians put forth their best effort against the Mariners. See, I love to drive. I don't mind flying, but driving allows me to observe the scenery. The mountains, the towns that once were, and, of course, the…MORE

“Words” To Live By

I've heard a lot of name calling, hurt feelings and anger this week. I don't understand. More people seem angrier over the idea of two members of the same gender being joined in a union recognized by the state than are over the idea that we could be fined, or taxed, for not having health…MORE

Biden’s vaccine mandate is not the solution By Governor Brad Little Americans are deeply divided on COVID-19 and the response to it. Public health has turned political, there’s no doubt about it.
