A call for blog fodder

At DFO’s request, I’m taking another run at blog-sitting while he’s on vacation. And so, I’m making a plea to all of you to help me out with material. Apart from not being as smart, talented, or handsome as Dave (above), I have two other key disadvantages:

• I live and work in Spokane, and don’t get over to North Idaho much. So I don’t have much of a handle (pun intended) on the local political scene. I try to keep up with the blog, but I’m not going to sit here and pretend to know what I’m talking about when it comes to Gozzer Ranch yacht wars or Marty Fortier.

• I’m doing this in addition to other work, so I’m not able to spend much time crusing around looking for things to post.

And so - your help this week is crucial to keeping the blog flowing. Don’t be shy about suggesting items to post, and please don’t worry about insulting my intelligence or whatever by explaining at length why a particular post is noteworthy. This is your community, after all. Drop me a line at
