Huckleberries Online

HBO's Best of the Local Blogs -- 6/14/06

In the Ripley's Believe It Or Not category, Family Phil Jr. got tired of trying to fish among the raindrops this overcast June and decided to become a fish here.

*Big John Rook has become a poet for those of you who didn't know it (sorry), and he now has a link on his web site to his poetry here.

*UBob correctly wonders why Central Valley High School used its nuclear option to lock down the school simply because some kids had engaged in a food fight here, and he's still waiting for answers here.

*"Fear is vague. Fear is a warning. It is a chemical response. It can be so much more than just a feeling. It can manifest itself in many ways. Paranoia, depression, anxiety...all of these are the minions of fear, it's agents" -- Toadman here.

*Bayview Herb has been so desperate to communicate with the outside world since his phone service went down that he's having conversations with computers here.

*Sara Anderson/F-Words has posted a number of items worthy of consideration for the BOTLB, but I picked this one about quirky religions in North Idaho here.

*Bill McCrory/Whitecaps sez it's hard to determine if health-care overcharges are mistakes or crimes without experienced fraud investigators and auditors following the money here.

Meanwhile, Mari shows off her unusual chess pieces and sets here and here, Cis talks about parenting here and here, and Marianne explains how hubby's great adventure came to naught here.
