Boise has been the capitol of Idaho too long...
What does it have to offer? Freeways to nowhere? Potatoes? Onions? Hey, I love potatoes and onions! Its just not centrally located. I have a plan.
Let's move the capitol to Athol. Athol, you say? Yes, Athol! Where else can you be within two hours of Montana, Washington and Canada, plus it's got a catchy name. What's with "Boise". Does anyone know what a Boise is?
Boise is the biggest city in Idaho. Nowhere else does that happen. Olympia, Washington is small. Pierre, South Dakota is small...Well, so are the rest of their cities, come to think of it.
Athol has Silverwood...Boise has a crumbling capitol building. Why spend all that money refurbishing a building that deserves a decent burial. Build a new one...In Athol, of course.
If the capitol is in Athol, our legislators would be fishing in Bayview, not trying to think up new ways to ignore are area, and passing odorous tax legislation.
I invite your comments...
