*Stebbijo/Your Choice has an interesting post today re: words that have been hijacked to mean something else (pot, gay, liberal tipper, etc.), and she wonders if you have some nominees here.
*For as long as he can remember, Bill McCrory/Whitecaps sez the US has been at war with some other country or something. He provides a link to enable you to decide if we’re really at war or only AUMF here.
*MikeK (who unfortunately has been posting less and less since he got that gig at City Hall)/The Idaho Kennedys posts Democrat Minority Leader Wendy Jaquet’s view of the first week of the Idaho Legislature here.
*Marianne Love/Slight Detour laments that she missed her chance to cash in on lakefront property, now that the small Lake Love Begone has receded from her house here.
