Check out these recent hand-picked links – now with teaser paragraphs – from blogs. • Nominate your most vomity movie | Movies and More Here’s a question: When was the last time you saw a movie that was so bad you could have used a line from the classic rock-mockumentary “This Is Spinal Tap” to describe it? And what was the movie? • State 4A: Day One in the Dome | Sportslink TACOMA - The favored Federal Way boys found themselves behind 8-2 in the first quarter against upstart Redmond, but quickly righted the ship. • Stimulus bill has 8,500 earmarks | Huckleberries Online Question: Are you surprised by Congress’ decision to pass a budget loaded with 8,500 “earmarks”?/Moscow-Pullman Daily News • HBO’s best of the Inland Northwest | Huckleberries Online Sue Smith holds a picture at her inlaws home near Colbert, of her husband, Rob, who was killed last Friday in a snowmobile accident. • Oregon student newspaper goes on strike at hiring of former S-R editor Steve Smith as publisher | Eye on Olympia The staff of the University of Oregon’s student newspaper, the Daily Emerald, went on strike four hours ago at the prospect of a new organizational structure headed by Steve Smith, who until a few months ago was the top editor of the Spokesman-Review. Smith this morning said he was stunned at the fracas, and has withdrawn his acceptance of the newspaper’s offer to be publisher. • Day-care bill clears Senate committee | Eye on Boise Minimum licensing standards for small day care centers in Idaho survived a Senate committee hearing Wednesday and headed for debate in the full Senate. • That’s two for the school campaign | Spin Control The people supporting the ballot measures for the Spokane School District seem to be intent on proving that the community needs to be spending more money on education.

Who knew? • No cussing | Are We There Yet? I’m embarrassed to admit this, but my kids recognize a bad word when they hear one. • A brand-spanking-new … something | Vox Box Alllrighty - so here’s a…(like I previously exclaimed..) BRAND SPANKIN’-NEW section that’s going to be hitting the blog weekly. I’d like to call it the ‘Venue of the Week’, or ‘The Hot Spot’…or ‘Cool Places for Cool People Like Us’… Want more?
