Press Returns To Registration, Sorta

For those keeping score at home, racists and other kibitzers can no longer comment on two stories involving the tragic slaying of Coeur d'Alene Tribe member Tim Wolfe, 21, of Worley. You can pay $2.95 to find the stories in the archives, involving the shooting and first appearance. But can't comment on them. A Saturday morning breaking story -- before the police arrested suspect Juan Vallenueva -- remains in the comments section, with a sanitized thread. Meanwhile, a Berry Picker reports this morning that the Press again is requiring commenters to provide a Username and Password. Stay tuned.
