The Gem State (Boise, Idaho)
I spent a few days in Boise, Idaho, this week. The downtown was old-style and human-scale. The domed capitol building, surrounded by a lovely park, conveyed the sense that democracy was within reach of the people. And I found something comforting in the presence of coin operated newspaper dispensers, which I haven't seen (or at least noticed) in ages in New York.
