High Noon: ‘Oh, How We ♥ Idaho’

“Oh, how we love Idaho,” declared Rep. Linden Bateman, R-Idaho Falls, as he began presenting HCR 5 in the House this morning, his resolution to name the Capitol Auditorium the “Abraham Lincoln Auditorium,” and marking March 4 as the 150th anniversary of the creation of Idaho Territory by President Lincoln. Bateman, a retired history teacher and a Lincoln buff, told of how a reporter asked Ernest Hemingway why he loved Idaho, and the author responded, “It’s the only place they haven’t changed”/AP via Eye on Boise.

Question: Can you count the ways that you love Idaho?
