Also on the environmental front, I am one of the "talking heads" (maybe shoulders, too?) on the latest installment of KBCI Channel 2's "Project Green." The half-hour show focuses on transportation alternatives.

Check it out at 7 tonight (Monday, September 17), or click my name for other air dates/times on the Boise Bus Blog.

Congrat's!! I missed the first one they did; I like they are opening the discussion on a variety of topics.

Monday Morning side note, amazing pictures of the Northwest Passage and how it is NOT so solid....


t, where are those Northwest Passage photos?

Alos, an unrelated note for Eastern Idaho readers, I got word via email today that a Barack Obama organizational meeting is set for 1 p.m. Saturday, September 22, at Papa Tom's Pizza, 1830 S. Woodruff Ave, Idaho Falls, ID.

Bonneville will be the eighth Idaho county with an Idahoans for Obama organization. The others are Ada, Bannock, Canyon, Kootenai, Latah, Nez Perce, and Twin Falls. More info at http://www.idahoansforobama.org/.

Ooops, another email news nugget. This is Drinking Liberally week in Boise, and there's a new venue: Pengilly's, 513 Main Street. The meet-up is at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, September 19. Happy third anniversary to DL Boise!

A couple of things....

The name of my blog is 'Left Side of the Moon'

and -

the ACLU filed an amicus curiae brief on behalf of Larry Craig stating that solitication for sex is protected under the First Amendment. Wonder what this will do for sexual harassment?

Actually I googled real quick to look for some pics and did not find any with ease. We watched a story on it yesterday -- used to be only ice breaking ships could navigate parts of it, and now there was a LOT of water to be seen, between floating ice.

As to the ACLU those that want to see the brief can find it here:


KBCI was the prime media sponsor for the Step It Up concert we held here in Boise back in April. At the time, our organizing committee met with the Director of Programming Production who informed us that their station has chosen environmental issues as a focus for their reporting and would produce a number of pieces on the topic over the next two years. It seems this "Project Green" series of reports are the result of this effort.

I encourage everyone with an interest in this issue to tune in tonight at 7 p.m. (or record for later viewing which is what I'll be doing) and watch their broadcast. They did a previous broadcast on recycling in the Treasure Valley two months ago.

Sorry, Left Side. I've fixed the blogroll. Thanks for the tip on Craig (and thanks, t, for the linkage).

Interesting move by the ACLU. I wonder how Craig feels about it? From USA Today:

"Senator Craig has not always been a great friend of civil liberties, but you shouldn’t have to endorse the civil liberties of others to keep your own," Anthony Romero, the group's executive director, says in a statement. "Government should make public restrooms safe for all, but it should do so in a manner that is really designed to stop inappropriate behavior, rather than destroying the lives of people who might have no intention of doing anything illegal."

Irwin, have you heard about Greg Otero's next project, for May 2008? http://www.idahogreenexpo.org/


Actually I saw a banner ad for the Idaho Green Expo last week at newwest.net/boise and clicked on it. I sent in a request for more info and got a reply from Greg (which I wasn't expecting).
