We're all for enthusiastic endorsements, and we love good timing. Consider the example of both, demonstrated by a certain state senator who has begged us to let him remain nameless. At a public event last winter, BW Editor Shea Andersen brought along one of our interns, to show her around the scene. When Certain State Senator met her, he said, "Oh, an intern! Well, at least you're at the good paper." Trouble is, Kevin Richert, the editorial page editor for the Idaho Statesman, was standing directly behind him, listening to every word. Well, that ought to make the next endorsement interview interesting.
