Huckleberries Online

Huckleberries Best of the Local Blogs — 8/25/06

SR photog Jesse Tinsley snapped this one of Dennis Franz at Avondale Golf Course today, where the former “NYPD Blue” star helped raise money for a police/firefighter charity.

*I’ve always learned more from bad drubbings than easy wins. It’s my way to engage giants, to debate outside my league. But rarely have I been so outgunned as this past Friday during a brief but weighty debate over online speech with Steve Smith, editor of The (Spokane) Spokesman-Review — Brent Andrews/Chronic Discontent here.

*Mari/Dogwalk Musings beat me to the punch by a coupla days as she expresses her thoughts about Commish Gus Johnson’s move into the P&Z director’s vacant office here. Watch for my Sunday editorial about this.

*Mommy Dearest/BrodH20 has one of those horrible moments that all parents do — when you lose sight of your kid in a crowded area — here.

*Marianne Love/Slight Detour explains how she fell in love at first sight with a Border Collie puppy named Kiwi during a day at the fair here.

*Idawa/Word Forge doesn’t like the cold weather in Seattle and has a burning desire to visit Moscow, Idaho, here.

Point Of Order: It’s been 3 weeks since MikeK has posted anything on his Idaho Kennedys blog. This, after repeated promises to post more often. What shall we do to this Irish Catholic? Penance? Purgatory? The Cooler?

Meanwhile, Stebbijo Unzipped is looking for stories about homeless people here, Family Phil snapped a few good fair photos before his batteries died here, Herb loses sight of Bayview here, Cis reveals that she’s becoming a grandma of many colors here, and Toad posts an “experimental expository” here.
