Woody Is Swing Vote On McEuen

Woody McEvers swears he's not feeling the heat. Not the kind in his Rustlers Roost kitchen, where the 30-year restaurant owner can be found nearly every day, cooking, cleaning and otherwise running the Hayden breakfast and lunch spot off U.S. 95. It's the heat that can come through the front door of the tidy restaurant the Coeur d'Alene City Councilman swears isn't affecting him. Because when some customers pull up to the counter or plop down at a table, they bend McEvers' ear on all things political - like McEuen Field. "Yeah, I've heard that: 'You're the swing vote," McEvers said Friday in his office at the back of the restaurant. "What the hell is a swing vote?" A swing vote is a vote than can go either way/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Can you believe some people would consider boycotting Woody's popular Rustler's Roost restaurant to try to force him to support a public vote for McEuen Field?
