From Sasha’s blog, Sasha Likes Soup. Here, Sasha emails City Hall in Wrangell, Alaska (my hometown) to ask about the vacant Borough Manager position:
I am interested in the Borough Manager position in Wrangell, Alaska. I have just a few questions I need answered.
1. Do I need a passport to visit Wrangell? 2. What is the local currency? Are there many currency conversion shops around town. I will be traveling from the United States so I will only be carrying US Dollars. 3. What language is most commonly spoken?
She actually gets a response. Having lived in Wrangell, I can tell you honestly: these are questions we got all the time.
“I’m going to put people in my place, so when the history of this administration is written at least there’s an authoritarian voice saying exactly what happened," Bush said.”—fmr. President George W. Bush, talking about his upcoming “authoritarian" autobiography. I think the word he’s looking for is authoritative.
Soon after a British newspaper published a photo of what appeared to be Phelps smoking marijuana, Kellogg’s announced it would not renew the swimmer’s endorsement contract - never mind the eight gold medals he won at the Beijing Olympics.
Apparently, that left only one problem: what to do with the boxes of Corn Flakes and Frosted Flakes bearing Phelps’ toothy grin. The answer seemed pretty clear two weeks ago when the local Food Bank took delivery of nearly 2 tons of the cereal.
