    I was back visiting in March, and the only political sign I saw was an anti-Cafta sign. It warmed my heart.

    Yeah, Lewiston definitely has the labor influence because of Potlatch and the history there, and I think too because it's such an outdoor-sy place, that a lot of people are democrat just for environmental reasons. I attended Lewiston High School, and except for the cowboy section of the student body, it was definitely very liberal. Abnormally so, even.

    The Lewiston Morning Tribune... does Bill Hall still write his opinion column? That paper is definitely left-leaning, at least by Idaho standards. My mom still lives there and reads it, and is a very reliable democrat.

    How I miss that town.

      Bill Hall is retired, but writes a Sunday column.  His column this week was very good, about he was a boy and grew up during WWII and how everyone sacrificed and pulled for the common good.  But with this war, everyone is out for themself or not affected by it, unless they had a family member or friend involved.

        Thanks for the update. It really wouldn't take much to get an online subscription, would it? I'd like to follow Lewiston more closely than I have been.

          I enjoy the paper.  I only get it on Sundays, but we get it at work during the week.  I enjoy the editorials, am sometimes surprised by the letters, and enjoy several of the columnists, especially, Trudy Rubin.

          You still in the Northwest?
