Best of the Local Blogs — 2/14/06


CDADave made me bust out laughing with this spoof of Granati’s fine black-and-white photo from last night. Dave’s commentary about this photo is here. And he provides sound reasoning why we should keep the potato as our mascot here.

*Colin Mulvaney/Video Journal provides a wonderful ode to Valentines Day by taking his camera to a retirement center to interview 7 couples who have been married a combined 302 years here.

*For the first time in 32 years, Marianne Love/Slight Detour is apart from her True Love (William E. Love Jr.) on Valentine’s Day here.

*Family Phil was curious/furious after a review of the “Curious George” by Ebert & Ropert didn’t get two thumbs up because — (drum roll, please) it is truly a children’s movie here.

*Jim Meehan/Idaho Vandals tells of a columnist for the Orlando Sentinel who believes back to the future UI football coach Dennis Erickson may stay with UI 2 or 3 years to refurbish his image here.

*Toad/Synaptic Disunion doesn’t have use for the commercialism of Valentine’s Day, but he analyzes the value of it in this nice think piece here.

Meanwhile, Blogmeister KenP tells of discontent among some readers who prefer national/int’l news on the front page to local news here, Bayview Herb deals with Seattle’s gridlock here, Cis opposes Idaho’s anti-gay marriage amendment here, and Greg tells of a Lakeland High soccer player who won a state honor here.
