In his weekly Cheers & Jeers column, opinionator Marty Trillhaase of the Lewiston Tribune jeers ... Senate President Brent Hill, R-Rexburg. Here's Hill for his "reaction to (State Sen. Sheryl) Nuxoll's desecration of the Holocaust victims: "This is a very emotional issue for a lot of people. There's a lot of 'stuff' going around, a lot of information, a lot of viewpoints being expressed," Hill said. "As we get closer to making that decision, the rhetoric's going to get more dramatic. ... I don't think this is exclusive to Sen. Nuxoll." What's the point of being the moral conscience of the Senate if you stand silent in the face of outrage?
