In the interest of History

Don Young, Representative for All Alaskans*, on terrorism, recently:

"There are more natural disasters than there are terrorist attacks, and will continue to be that. Thank God, in a sense. But there are more tragedy occurred by Mother Nature than any of the terrorist groups."

Way back in my first ever post, about a week ago or something, I gave a rundown on our Congressional delegation. I didn't even really try to explain Don Young, because who can really explain why we some people, I don't know who, keep electing him? And I provided that excellent quote on art made by none other than DY, RFOA. Well, certain people, we shall call them Alaskans Interested in History, swore that after Young made his infamous comments to the West Valley High School students, some parents with a sense of humor came up with a t-shirt and sold it. I confess, I thought it some kind of rural legend.

Fellow cabin-dwellers, persons-residing-in-non-aquatically challenged homes, and Outsiders behold, I have pictures of that shirt, confirming its existence.

* But not this particular one.

I want one. Just about everybody I know in Ester probably wants one. Not to mention a ton of people in Goldstream, Fairbanks, and Talkeetna.

GREAT blog!

Aw, shucks.

Maybe we can find some entrepreneur willing to come up with a 'wit and witticism of Don Young' t-shirts?

Bueller? Bueller?
