Inside Huckleberries — 8/23/06

*You can find more information (from a sympathizer) about the individual who disrupted U.S. Sen. Larry Craig’s townhall meeting last night, Stan Hess, here.

*A Berry Picker, posting under the name “Jumbo,” estimated the “crowd” at the Hastert-Sali affair yesterday in Post Falls as half the 150 reported by the Sali camp. Quoth: “It was a smaller crowd than there usually is for the chamber meetings every month. There were four or five empty tables and maybe ten tables with 8 people. If you don’t count local electeds and Sali family and campaign staff I say the 75 to 80 number is accurate.”

*Tom Forbes/Palousitics sends along a link from an L.A. Times editorial that slaps Democrats for demonizing Wal*Mart here.

*Huckleberries hears … that Steve and Shasta Groene were baptized in a moving ceremony Sunday night at Real Life Church in Post Falls.

*Rep. Frank Henderson dropped by this morning to push tax relief in the form of an increase of the grocery tax credit from $20 to $45. He has the breakdown to show that they change when in effect drop the sales tax on food to 2.5% for a family of four. But more about that later.
