Emptying the nest, I'll be back Aug. 29

My second cherub is headed to college. He gets a vacation from me this coming week. Then, we're taking a road trip to school.

He's been a gentleman, scholar, athlete and friend and makes me proud every day. As does his sister, now a junior in college.

This space will be pretty quiet in the meantime. But, as the Terminator said, "I'll be back."

Speak for yourself. i like

Speak for yourself. i like Dan's reporting. I don't always agree with his opinions, but unless you're a pinhead, who would agree with any reporter all the time. Besides, it's a good thing when a father can take his kids to college.

Kudos, Dan. Have a good trip!

Enjoy Dan.

Looking forward to your return and your continued reporting! Especially on the ones that like to think they have gotten away with something!

Have fun!

Thanks for everything you do for the Boise community and the state--go enjoy your family. Please ignore people like pale_writer. You've certainly earned the thick skin.

What if the giant birth control flash mob steals your desk?

Worse than Occupiers, no doubt.
