Living as I do in Boise, Idaho, the best part of my day is the five minutes it takes me to read the local paper, The Idaho Statesman. I always start with the letters to the editor, which I describe as the comic section, ‘cos all the letters are about second amendment rights, black helicopters and how the president is a fascist/communist/Muslim/Buddhist. I leave the front page till last, as it is dominated, every fucking day of the year, with news about the Boise State University football team, otherwise known as the “Bronco’s.” These are the guys who play on a blue pitch, otherwise known as “Smurf Turf,” inside a stadium glorying in the name, Taco Bell Arena.
