At first, I didn’t get it.A friend in Charlotte sent me a text that said: “Idaho weeps for Roseanne.”Next, I received an email from another pal who simply wrote: “Coming soon to Coeur d’Alene — Roseanne Live!”Finally, the light came on.Peop...

May 31, 2018 at 5:00 am

It’s Chat Day, where we talk about everything and nothing.Notes and quotes, a little of this and a little of that.Normally this one is a lot of fun, but I’m a little upset as we start today’s conversation.You probably saw Matthew Gwin’s sto...

Cd’A: Spokane East, you say?

May 24, 2018 at 5:00 am

May 16, 2018 at 5:00 am

You’ve had the flu.Notice that wasn’t phrased as a question.Of course you’ve had a miserable case of flu, in some hideous form or other.There are two automatic signs ...One: Everyone seems thrilled when you’re sickeningly bathed in sweat, l...
