Eye On Boise

Another one on the wall

Gov. Butch Otter welcomed the crowd at the Idaho’s Hall of Fame ceremony tonight – he was among the inductees, as were Sen. Larry Craig and Lt. Gov. Jim Risch – by saying, “I appreciate the opportunity to be amongst this much-distinguished class. I’d say that this is probably the best class that I’ve ever seen in the portfolio.” Amid silence, Otter added, “That was supposed to be a joke.”

Historian Arthur Hart, when he accepted his plaque for being inducted, recalled an earlier event. “I was presented a plaque by Cecil Andrus. He said, ‘Arthur, the road to senility is paved with plaques.’” Amid laughter, Hart said, “I’m happy to add one more to the wall.”
