Uncommon Wisdom #18

Credit where credit is due: The first half of this piece of wisdom was pirated from uncommonly wise and non-fictitious actual person Robert Meyerowitz

What (Aside from the entire country of Canada) Sets Alaska Apart ?

Shannyn Moore, Steve Heimel and I deconstructed Bunny Boots, Blazo boxes and Pilot Bread with help from voices from across our peculiar state on Talk of Alaska this morning. To give you the flavor of the discussion, I am posting my kick-off for the show below. It is sung to the tune of "My Favorite Things".

Cold snaps and earthquakes,volcanic eruptions,
Bear in the back yard, Veco corruption,
Fat checks from the government that make our hearts sing
These are peculiar A-las-ka things.

Softball at midnight,
Winter moon at mid morning,
Alaska's the frontier of global warming
The dead hand of government we're fond of bewalin'
But we got our revenge, it's governor Palin!

Where the dog bites
Where the cold stings
But the air is clear,
So clear that from many a village and town, you can see Canada from here!

There are more thoughts from across Alaska posted on Shannyn's blog here
