    aren't always what they're cracked up to be. Every single one of them has had some private enterprise behind it's creation, right down to the very first.

    An Idaho Hall of Fame popped up out of nowhere a few years ago and our disgraced former Senator, Larry Craig, was supposed to be included; he was gonna get a bronze bust on a pedestal in our Capital's basement. The announcement happened only a few days before Craig's toe tapping bust of another sort occurred.

    But when outrage reached a  place somewhere around nuclear in heat, both the Hall of Fame and any mention of Craig being included disappeared forever and has never re-surfaced. No person behind the whole fiasco was never disclosed publicly.

    Right many are called, and damn few are chosen.

      Idaho07, that is good to hear, as in that case, the outrage caused a positive effect, and Craig was not inducted.

      In this case, even with public outrage and a petition of 35,000, the ceremony still took place. It was at a time when Republicans were doing all they could to protect the lies Limbaugh was spewing against Obama and liberals.

      I still find it hard to believe Tilley and Republicans got away with it, and that the bust still remains! I hope the renewed media discussion helps rectify the situation.
