*So you have a new old name... I liked the No Hold Barred name...Hot Potatoes feels flat... where NHB seems fuller.reminds me of the old adage..if it isn't broke don't fix it.... ..just my meek opinion -- Cis The Retired.

HP: I always regretted not naming the blog after my Hot Potatoes print column from the start. I like it because it's Idaho-ish. And it represents a slight change in the column to something a little more local. I always appreciate Cis' opinion, though.


After reading your column this morning, I pondered all day why the CDA Social Security Office would need an armed security guard. Is it a terrorist target? If so, the proposed library a block away should be re-located nearer to the center of CDA's population. ;)))) -- Duffer

HP: Izzit just me, or is the proposed location of the library in one of the worst places in town?


I ran across something the other day that few people are aware. The Demo's have made hay out of the banner that was on the Navy ship that was coming back to the States with the banner "Mission Accomplished." The sailors put that up themselves and it was intended to translate to the citizens that "they, the ship crew" had accomplished their mission and it had nothing to do with Bush or politics! How many LTTE (Letters To The Editor) have repeated the Demo use of the phrase? -- Vern (

HP: We have less than a month to go before the silliness is over. Hang in there, folks.
