Huckleberries Online

Rather than a "PS" question to close the day's blogging, I'm leaving you with some Kootenai County Courthouse scuttlebutt. If you saw the story about Linda Payne quitting the public defender's office (by Marc Stewart/Coeur d'Alene Press here), you may have noticed the statement about Commissioner Katie Brodie toward the end: "Commissioner Katie Brodie, who still keeps the Vaseline in her desk, wished Payne well." Payne, of course, got into hot water with the commissioners over a pay raise that didn't happen by giving them a jar of Vaseline, a tube of lipstick and a greeting card. If Katie got the Vaseline, wonders the courthouse wags, who got the lipstick: Commish Gus Johnson or Commish Rick Currie. Inquiring minds want to know.
