Larryville's Conservative, Boring Sister
Okay, so I am reading my hometown's newpaper website, The Salina Journal online (http://www.saljournal.com/) and I noticed that our Chamber of Commerce has paid for Ms. I-Can-See-Alaska-From-My-Backyard to speak here in February. Not only that, but check out the list of names of former speakers... I must admit that I agree with my boyfriend when he termed Salina as being "the conservative, boring sister of Lawrence" (although I am sure some people would prefer Salina's atmosphere to Lawrence's just for the Republican'ness alone).
"On Monday afternoon, the chamber announced that former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin will be the guest speaker at its annual banquet Feb. 5.
Past guest speakers have included former President George H.W. Bush, former First Lady Barbara Bush, New York City Mayor and presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani, former Secretary of State Colin Powell, former British Prime Minister John Major and former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft."
