HBO’s Best of the Local Blogs — 12/11/06

Family Phil, take a bow; this photo is simply viewtiful. Phil snapped this last Friday during a home-school cruise to watch the eagles on Lake Coeur d’Alene.

OrangeTV/Making Flippy Floppy presents his personal “Best Albums of 2006” here.

*Trish Gannon/River Journal is relieved that the e-mail policy where she works is pretty lax — then, there’s a reason for that — here.

*Bill McCrory/Whitecaps claims the Coeur d’Alene City Council violated the state’s open-meeting law when it tackled authorized a permit for a Lake City High fireworks display here.

*TUBOB tries to clear up the rumor that’s been burning up the Internet that he’s the father of Mary Cheney’s unborn baby here.

*Mike Kennedy/Idaho Kennedys brings the war home to us today by passing along an e-mail of a friend who tells of the death in Iraq of Major Joseph Trane McCloud here.

*The mention of “fragrant tree” in the ancient writings of Baruch transport Raymond Pert/Kellogg Bloggin’ back to his childhood and also to the time he lived in “The Lilac City” here.

*Cis/From A Simple Mind admits that she’s been fitted for three pairs of falsies here.

*”Is it any wonder our local Prosecutor has given a pass to his deputy and other staffers for circulating what amounts to “kiddie porn” around the office because it was a “joke”. Excuse after excuse has been lifted to the wind - one can’t keep tabs on all the e-mails. Impossible task. Sorry. That is just flat out not true. And it is NOT a joke!” — Mari/Dogwalk Musings here.

Meanwhile, Katrina tells of her love-hate relationship with computers here, JBelle connects with the Blessed Virgin here, Marianne has a crackerjack idea how to make $$$ with a camera here, Pecky provides the latest X-country ski conditions at Priest Lake here, Dr. Jim has posted a poll that asks if doctors should advertise plastic surgery here, Frum Helen Back sez the public crappers on Hauser Lake will be replaced here, and the UI slogan, “He’s back, are you?” makes JeanC want to puke here.
