Lower 49 Meet Wasilla Alaska
In the last couple of days many have found a blogger from Alaska that does a bang up job writing about his state and it's politics, he was thrown into the politics of the Presidential Campaign much like Senator John McCain threw out his running mate Sarah Palin, I can only guess, but I doubt his site and writings were seen by many outside of Alaska, they are now.
Yesterday, on a trip back home, he and his wife shot some photo's of Wasilla Alaska, where Sarah Palin is from and was mayor of for a few years.
Under the above photo, which he leads his most recent post off with, he writes this: Time for a caption contest! Anyone?.
Very apt, don't ya think.
He's got a number of photo's in this post, take a trip over for a visit, and as mentioned in the comments the photo's might remind many of a certain town from a TV show that frankly is one I miss.
If you haven't visited his site in the last few days, since the announcement of Palin as the Republican VP candidate, read through his recent posts to get a better feel his take on Alaska and the Politics within.
He has a list of other Alaskan Bloggers that are worth a visit, whether or not Palin is still around in a couple of days, giving the ability for us below to find out much more about Alaska, even with the recent Corruption Investigations, and other reports, most of us have little knowledge of.
And as would be expected each of the above have links to other Alaskan Bloggers and sites.
We've all absorbed an awful lot of breaking news about the Vice Presidential pick, one time mayor now first term governor of Alaska, it's high time we got to know the people and state better, again whether she's still around in a few days or not. With all the also breaking news, recently, about the alleged political corruption, though that seems to be all over this country, they could use the help of us in the lower 49 in bringing honest leadership and direction to their state.
I almost moved there years ago, when the oil was discovered and the construction started on the original pipeline. Don't remember why I didn't except possibly being very busy at the time in central New York construction and traveling to other states building stores in a relatively new concept of enclosed malls. Always wish I had, it's a beautiful state, as this blogger seems to have found out after he moved there many years back.
Hope he doesn't mind my sharing his photo, and link to the others. Normally wouldn't do so but after these last couple of days I feel these and his post should be shared and visited.
