Hot Potatoes — 1/31/07

Eli Weston, cooking in place of co-owner Steve Hudson, holds up a hamburger before serving the customer Tuesday at Hudson's Hamburgers in Coeur d'Alene. The century-old business still serves simple grilled hamburgers and slices of pie to locals who crowd into the tiny storefront and sit cheek-by-jowl with strangers on stools/Jesse Tinsley, Spokesman-Review.

*Lawmakers commend Hudson's: Three generations of family attend ceremony in Boise/Parker Howell, Spokesman-Review -- Todd Hudson was gracious in deflecting the honor: "It says a lot about our customers, because we wouldn't have made it a year, let alone 100," without them. But everyone else knows it says more about the Hudsons' devotion to culinary excellence.

*Field burning ruled illegal: Court says it violates Clean Air Act, orders EPA to reconsider rules/Betsy Russell, Spokesman-Review -- That bell you hear tolling, Mr. and Mrs. Grass Grower? It's tolling for thee. (Cue: Pave paradise, put up a parking lot ...)

*Woman jailed after rushing home to cook for her son/Dave Turner, Coeur d'Alene Press -- Mebbe she shoulda told her son to eat at Hudson's Hamburgers instead. Or make his own lunch.

*Addressing issues at home: Flooding tops agenda as governor visits Bonners Ferry/Erica Curless, Spokesman-Review -- Good PR move. Wonder if the governor scouted out a good hunting spot to bag an endangered caribou or two to go with his hunting plans for a future delisted wolf?

*88 Idaho prisoners refuse parole: They'd rather serve out terms than comply to conditions/Betsy Russell/Eye on Boise -- They'd rather do the time than receive treatment for the crime. So much for rehabilitation for these sitting time bombs.

Question: How often do you eat at Hudson's Hamburgers?
