“and you shall have a spade among your tools, and it shall be when you sit down outside, you shall dig with it and shall turn to cover up your excrement.”
“As a town becomes increasingly dominated by a particular religious, political or social philosophy, residents and visitors who find such views repugnant begin to worry that, in spending money, they might be helping to advance those ideas.” Continue reading

“O God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, our only Savior, the Prince of Peace: Give us grace seriously to lay to heart the great dangers we are in by our unhappy divisions; take away all hatred and prejudice, and whatever else may hinder us from godly union and concord; that, as there is but one Body and one Spirit, one hope of our calling, one Lord, one Faith, one Baptism, one God and Father of us all, so we may be all of one heart and of one soul, united in one holy bond of truth and peace, of faith and charity, and may with one mind and one mouth glorify thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”
Book of Common Prayer
Dr. Lois Blackburn saw it all from afar. Now, 12 years later, the beast has risen from his slumber to devour more land and more parking in the core, just as she predicted. Continue reading
Like most folks, we have a central trashcan in our kitchen where we toss garbage. It’s a handsome unit, as these things go — black with a stainless steel lid that opens when you step on the foot pedal, and it holds a regular size plastic trash bag. When the trashcan gets full, we take the bag outside to a bigger trashcan, which the local waste disposal company picks up once a week. Mondays are trash day in our neighborhood. So I just dragged the trashcan down the driveway to the edge of the street, where the garbage truck can pick it up and haul it to a landfill.
You see, the key to effective garbage management is that you can’t let the central trashcan in the home overflow. You must control it, because if you don’t it begins to smell like rotten food. So once the garbage in the bag flirts with the top of the can, I pull it out and carry it to the bigger can outside.
All of this is to observe that the central garbage can in Moscow is bursting at the seams. Your trashcan can’t hold anymore. Worse, it’s sticking out the top of the can and falling on the floor. You have trash everywhere and it stinks. Therefore, I suggest that you put your garbage out.
Postscript: This same principle applies to the Communion of Reformed Evangelical Churches, with one exception: The CREC is the landfill where the Christian church dumps its garbage.

Parking downtown can be difficult. But we need to note what kind of problem this actually is — a very good one.

To demonstrate how seriously City Hall takes NSA’s CUP, the City of Moscow conducted a parking study for NSA’s CUP after the University of Idaho students left town. This tantamount to a parking study for a ghost town. They may was well check parking on Christmas Day or during a Latah County evacuation drill. Continue reading
