State of Confusion

Let us now consider Idaho. How many of us have uttered some variation of the phrase "not the potato state, Iowa". Too many to count. Did you know that the Des Moines Public Library owns over 40 works of fiction that feature the state of Idaho? Neither did I! One of them is by John Saul! A horror novel set in Idaho! Guardian is the title! There's even a Stuart Woods novel, Heat, that takes place in Idaho. It's about cults! Obviously Idaho is a hotbed of excitement and maybe we should acquaint ourselves better with our partner in disorientation. Then we can say, "No, not the state in Stuart Woods Heat, Iowa". Have bushels of fun:
