Disclaimer: We dig fellow alt weekly Pacific Northwest Inlander. We reprint stories from them on occasion, and I've met a few staffers at Alt Weekly conferences who are respectable individuals.
However: Inlander co-founder/editor/publisher Ted S. McGregor Jr. should get to Boise more often. After a recent Conan O'Brien appearance in Spokane, McGregor strutted his tail feathers on Spokane's behalf giving Boise the equivalent of a gradeschool "booya," writing:
As for what he thought of Boise’s giant ball of potato peelings or whatever it is they have in what I am sure is a fine city, we’ll never know. Conan skipped Boise.
Newsflash, McGregor. There's a reason we call it Spokompton here in the lovely City of Trees. Conan or not.
