I apologize that I don’t have time to compile Huckleberries Best of the INorthwest today. Been busy. Prompted by the Coeur d’Alene Press whitewash of the prosecutor’s e-mail story this morning, I finally decided to check out the Baughman File. I’ll shower soon. However, I did have a pleasant interlude before lunch when Dick Haugen dropped by to say hello and to report that he’s doing OK — after his unceremonious firing by KXLY/KVNI. Dick sez he’s probably outta radio, but he wouldn’t mind pursuing something locally in the PR field where he can use his many talents accumulated over 16 years in this community. Pleaz contact him, if you have any leads. Seems KXLY made a show of force this morning to cover the State of the City speech by Her Sandiness. Few at the breakfast were fooled by the coverage, which in lieu of recent circumstances, was way too little too late.
