Isn't springtime lovely? The weather in Pocatello has been absolutely beautiful lately. We've turned on the air conditioning that's how nice it is today.
Closed week at ISU begins Monday and finals week begins the following Monday, so needless to say, my time will be much consumed with studying and finishing a research paper.
This coming Monday (May 1st) there will be national protests in respect to immigration rights. A blog that I have been looking at for several days now, Empires Fall, has more about the protests. Please check out Empires Fall. Hopefully in the next few days I will have second to add this blog to the blogroll for those of you who enjoy reading posts that slam the Bush administration. That's not really my area of interest, but I realize for Democrats in Idaho it is certainly something.
This morning as I was sitting at People & Politics with the Bannock County Democrats, I realized that I never announced that I was elected to be president of the ISU College Democrats for the upcoming 2006-2007 academic year. So...when you all read the comments for the last post and see Serephin's congratulatory comment, that's the story.
I'm not sure I mentioned after the filing deadline how excited I am about Larry LaRocco running for lt. governor. It was here that I posted on Dan Romero's bid for that seat and I really like Dan, but if we want experience, if we want success, if we want to beat Jim Risch, Larry is our guy. As I have been working in the congressional collection of Richard Stallings, I have read plenty about LaRocco and have truly grown to appreciate his unique political style. As I said last week I hope to do a Candidate of the Week feature here on this blog--a feature I just didn't have time to start this week--and I hope LaRocco will be one of the first candidates spotlighted. Until then, please visit Larry's virtual brochure at laroccoforidaho.com.
That's about it for today...Don't miss "The Last Hurrah" on TWW tomorrow night.
