Best of the Local Blogs -- 12/22/05

Not only does Digital Fog offer the spoof above of a, ahem, crime scene, but he provides an updated version of Gene Kelly's "Singing in the Rain" here.

*Sam Taylor/Vandal Sense and Intern Boy Friday for the SR this Christmas season continues to give us a look under the hood re: what it's like to work in a mid-major newsroom, including insight into what interns discuss here and the heartache a young journalist feels when he spends the day with a 2-year-old cancer survivor here.

*Bre/To Blog Or Not To Blog is having a rough time at the office this yuletide, what with the treats and unneeded gifts and all. She couldn't even give the latter away to a co-worker who's pinching pennies this Christmas here.

*Bill McCrory/Whitecaps provides a bookmark worthy site to enable you to find how your congressman voted here.

*Bayview Herb/Bay Views reacts strongly to "an anti-Christmas message" from a Spokesman-Review columnist here.

*CDADave/Thin Air posts a photo of an Indian teepee on the St. Joe "near Coeur d'Alene," circa 1910, and then wonders if it's appropriate to use "Indian" in these PC times. (DFO: in a word, yes, but I generally use the term American Indian in my scribblings for the paper to make sure there's no confusion with the ones half way around the world.) Click here.

Also: Cis tells of a lovely wedding in a North Idaho log cabin here, Marianne blogs on 3 hours sleep here, and Kale/un-Muted Mumblings offers an antiseptic holiday greeting for the easily offended here.
