Idaho needs to get a handle on problem
Gangs and public gang shootings: Wow, looks like Idaho is getting a handle on letting things get out of hand. Gangs have been hanging around and infiltrating metro areas in Idaho. That said, Idaho needs to get a handle on this problem. It hasnt taken it seriously for the last 10 years. That is why the problem is spreading and escalating. I know Idaho police agencies are doing what they can, but it is too little, too late. It will get worse because they are getting away with the lawbreaking.

State finally lets distillery make some money
I havent followed this for long ... and maybe I missed something, but who exactly was it that decided these Five Wives were all married to the same men? Maybe they are simply five wives of five husbands? Maybe they are five (hopeful) wives hoping to bring in five husbands with some good vodka? Maybe they are (sadly) five wives who are widows of five husbands just trying to make a living. Or maybe ... Its just a name.
What the bleep is wrong with everyone? Im glad Jeff Anderson decided to let the company make some money in this ever so shaky economy. Im pretty sure any Mormon who could have possibly been offended has only been alerted to Five Wives Vodkas existence by it being all over the news as they dont frequent liquor stores. (Or so I am told ....)

Keep up the good wishes
In response to the letter to the editor, War a 10-year-olds wishes, in the May 30 paper.
I agree with this letter, every word. War is not cool! Keep up these good wishes and thoughts. There are more people out there than you know who agree with you and Im one of them.

Choice is logical, but love is illogical
We hear from the conservatives that being gay is a choice. Of course the liberals have pooh-poohed that idea vehemently. However, have the liberals ever volunteered a valid reason for pooh-poohing the idea that being gay is a choice? I do not think so.
When I woke up this morning out of the blue this idea popped into my head. So consider this a reason for pooh-poohing the idea that being gay is simply a choice.
When we choose, are we not using logic? So I propose that choice is logical. How about love? Is love logical? I have never heard anyone refer to love as being logical, in fact quite the opposite. People all the time are referring to love as being illogical. How many times have you heard someone compare love to having a disease? There is nothing logical about love. So I hereby assume that love is not logical. So if choice is logical and love is illogical then one cannot choose to love. Therefore one cannot choose to be gay. Case closed.
