Eye On Boise

Greg’s tie worked

Greg Hahn, Statehouse reporter for Boise’s Idaho Statesman newspaper, has been on an ugly tie vigil for the past two weeks, trying to convince lawmakers to wrap up their session and head out of town. (Idaho Statehouse tradition, started by former AP correspondent Bob Fick, has it that if reporters just wear really awful ties at the end, the legislators will be so disgusted they’ll leave.)

But no matter how hideous Greg’s neckwear was, legislators kept meeting, stretching their session into its 93rd day today – until Greg showed up wearing this number. He says he’s not sure where the ghastly thing came from; he found it somewhere in the depths of his office. But, he said happily, “It worked.”
