Sorry for not posting this sooner, but I’ve been working my ass off around the house and yard.

I did have time to read the paper, though, and I could not believe today’s letters to the editor section.
I live in Lewiston, ID which is in the northern part of the state.  We are across the river from WA and about 60 miles north of OR.

I thought for sure when I moved here last summer that I would be the only liberal Democrat around for 100 miles, but I was wrong.  Lewiston is a mill town with remanents of the unions and a fair number of Democrats.  Up the road 30 miles is Moscow, home of the University of Idaho and Washington State University in Pullman, those liberal hotbeds, especially Moscow.

Our little paper, the Lewiston Morning Tribune, is quite liberal.  Today’s LTE section had 26 published letters.  Of those, four were in reference to the Downing Street Memo.  One person was calling for impeachment, another compared  it to the loss of salmon due to hydroelectric dams, the similarity being that the government lied in both cases (this is a way hot topic around here these days).

I am almost feeling hopeful.  If a red area of the country keeps talking about the DSM, can the rest of the country be far behind?
