NEWS: Some reaction to news that Gonzaga hired the University of Missouri's ex-communications professor Melissa Click. A video of Click went viral last year when she was caught on camera telling student journalists to remove themselves from a public demonstration on campus. Click called for some "muscle" to help remove one photographer.

MUSIC: Cheeky one-liners, just enough twang and "What, they're playing in Spokane next week?!": a few highlights from culture writer Dan Nailen's Bumbershoot.
