    Letter: Hobby Lobby

    I am more than a little concerned over the ruling for Hobby Lobby's lawsuit. In fact, I find several of the recent Supreme Court rulings disturbing. Constitutional law should benefit all the people, not just a few.

    Letter: Les Miserables

    Good news! For what I saw and experienced July 4, the citizens of Boise like and support good music. What I'm referring to is the musical performance of Les Miserables at the Shakespeare Amphitheater. The place was packed.
