Two tools to fight intolerance
Updated: March 15, 2015 - 12:24 am

Ignorance and intolerance are constant bedfellows. Experts tell us that these personality faults are rooted in little or poor education, lack of honest intellectual curiosity to grow in experience and understanding, and related to that last point, an unwavering commitment to surrounding oneself with similarly ignorant and intolerant people.

The Internet, the FCC and you
Updated: March 06, 2015 - 12:30 am

Last week's landmark decision by the Federal Communications Commission - a clearly difficult 3-2 splitting of the hairs - to impose strict rules on broadband service affects every American. In our view, this "net neutrality" ultimately affects them in a good way.

Beware the rhetoric on teacher pay
Updated: March 04, 2015 - 12:36 am

For years, Idaho's education vehicle has been in neutral. The Great Recession and Questionable Priorities put that vehicle on an icy hill. It has not slid forward.

Whispering two joyful
Updated: March 01, 2015 - 1:07 am

Let's turn away from the political silliness - soft landing spots for former elected officials, reproductive anatomy lessons, pending eviction of all non-Christian Idahoans - and pad around this first Sunday morning of March on the gentle slippers of little squirrels and big-hearted children.

We're a nation - and state - of free people
Posted: February 27, 2015

We could consider what in the wide, wide world of sports would lead someone to think Idaho would ever label itself a "Christian state." Lack of education, particularly in civics, might be near the top of that list, but some very bright people have little or poor educations, and some superbly educated people are shockingly stupid.

Vote 'yes' on Cd'A school levy
Updated: February 22, 2015 - 12:36 am

Failure to approve Coeur d'Alene School District's upcoming levy request would have the impact of essentially slashing a fifth of the district's entire budget. To district officials' credit, nobody is playing up that dark side of the equation as district voters prepare to cast their ballots on March 10.

The truth about liars

Greyhound losing one, winning many
Updated: February 06, 2015 - 12:12 am

The Idaho Legislature goofed in 2013 when it authorized the use of instant horse racing machines in non-tribal locations. These are nothing more than illegal slot machines with a misleading name. Players don't actually watch these "historic" races; the races on the machines whiz by faster than Secretariat in his wildest dreams. Therefore, the Legislature's mistake must be rectified, and smart money says it will be during the current legislative session.
