  • Sour grapes on the left

    Joe Conason's Dec. 13 "Spoils of War" editorial in The Inlander is yet another example of the left's attempt to confuse, obfuscate and distort the facts. Conason's article is so filled with hate that it is hard to figure out just what h
  • All in the family

    Those of us who have been waiting like excitable kids for the next installment of Star Wars will have to keep on waiting till May 16. But those of us who need a little more from our movie-going experience, who have been waiting like hungry do
  • Top 10 stories for 2002

    Two-headed alien babies aren't news. (Okay, if there was one, that would be a front-pager.) Neither are gardening tips, or movie reviews, or Britney Spears photo spreads. Those are all
  • Ray's top 11 films

    If you asked me my top 10 list from 2000 or 1999, I doubt I could tell you more than two or three entries. It would take too much head-scratching; I'm better at remembering moments of empathy and tenderness, or movies that celebrate simple or
  • Walleye world

    In the eyes of fishermen, this is the magical time of year when the sun hangs low in the winter sky and anglers of all ages feel that timeless pull -- to go inside, dammit, it's freezing out there. So here's your chance to walk around in a warm
  • The best CDs of 2001

    We like music around here. A lot. We assume -- since you are in fact reading this section -- you feel the same way. In case you haven't noticed, it's sort of a tradition around The Inlander to take a moment at year's end to reflect bri

  • Jukeboxes of the future

    Someday we won't even stop to wonder how we got along without them. Like telephones, automobiles, printing presses and truck drivers before them, MP3 players will eventually pass into that category of things that changed our lives so pro
  • Ed's top 10 films

    Contrary to popular opinion, this was not a bad year to go to the movies. Yes, prices went up at most theaters, but compared to stage productions and live concerts, a slightly inflated movie ticket was small price to pay for such big entertai
  • Why widen I-90?

    Imagine, if you will, a stretch of freeway as wide as two football fields set end to end. Such a monster would hold 19 lanes, or, alternatively, 14 lanes plus high-speed access thoroughfares on each side. Hard to picture, isn't it? Yet t
  • Citizen Critique-Kate & amp;amp; Leopold

    Whoever is marketing this film ought to know that I almost didn't go see it because the trailers made it look too syrupy, too 'chick flick,' too, well... Meg Ryan. In fact, that one line, where Meg rests her head on Hugh Jackman's broad che
  • Students staying home

    The United States has traditionally hosted a large number of exchange students from all over the world, as well as sent students abroad to study everything from agriculture to history. Since the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11 -- attacks tha
  • Local briefs

    Hot ticket -- SPOKANE -- Listen up, sports fans. You know the 2003 NCAA men's basketball teams will play their first and second rounds at the Spokane Arena. That's six games in two days, right here in River City. Now just try getting tick
  • Rant 'n' Roll

    When was the last time you found yourself in a club sweating to live, authentic Gypsy music? I see. Well, that's a good thing because Vancouver, B.C., band MCGNARLEY'S RANT doesn't play authentic Gypsy music. Theirs is a Celtic/folk/punk
  • CD review - Roland Orzabal

    The title of this album is somewhat misleading, gracing us with exactly the opposite of the proposed experience, but perhaps also symbolizing how many of us in the world are feeling at this moment. Tomcats Screaming Outside is a beautiful
