|The Real Republican|
Apparently bloggers Joseph Mailander and Phil Jennerjahn have found an interesting way to amuse themselves - they will bet on whether or not Republican Sarah Palin will run for President. Jennerjahn is convinced the former Alaska Governor will drop her hat into the ring; Mailander is putting his money on that Palin will remain on the book and talk TV circuit that's been so lucrative for her. Mailander and Jennerjahn tried to get me involved in their reindeer games, holding their funds and being the final arbiter, I have politely declined.
Speaking of Mailander, for years he's advocated the use of yurts as housing for the homeless. So far housing officials have yet to take up this suggestion, however a yurt has been temporarily erected on the City Hall lawn in celebration of Mongolian heritage.
Angeles Crest Highway, closed for a year following damage after the Station Fire, has finally been re-opened. Motorcyclists and others are thrilled.
