<< A very interesting weekend
As I've said in my personal space, I live in Kalispell, Montana. Well, I didn't say it exactly in my personal space, but I've said it now, and this is my personal space. So there :p.
Something I havent' mentioned yet is the fact that Kalispell is basically a dictatorship. Our county commisioners are asshats (a new term, coined by a friend), who only care about money and don't give a $%#* about anything else. They have a habbit of letting any development go through, no matter how freaking stupid. The latest one is a strip of 711s, strip malls, and a big Holiday Inn. And it's right behind my house. Yay. Someone needs to do something about it. Except the meeting about it is tomorrow morning, and nobody knows about it. So basically we're buggered. With a 10 foot pole. Sideways.
<leaving on a happy note>
I was going to say....Kalispell? So, are you one of the "green nazis" and if so, have you been followed lately?
Kalispell used to be a lovely place, full of granolas and ski bums. It's become the land of the almost-but-not-quite aryan nations. It's creepy.
What year did you grad from Flathead? My cousins went there, and it sounds like you might know one of them. Or perhaps both.
I suppose I fall into the "green nazis" category. I did spend the summer doing work for Citizens for a Better Flathead, a definately corrupting organization that wants to take the rights away from good citizens. (that's sarcasm for the record) Never got followed or anything, although I know a woman who got garbage dumped all over her driveway because Stokes didn't like her. I've got to admit that there are some things I really don't miss about Kalispell.
I graudated this year. I only know a couple people in the younger classes, but I knew a few more in the classes above me. And I knew most people in my class. Most people in my class have at least heard of me as well. What are their names?
They're a little ahead of you. Beth and Amy Bruninga.
Just when you thought a stake would be driven into the heart of the Good Old Boy Vampires...
Don't put down your garlic necklace yet!

(Sorry everyone, couldn't resist...)
I don't think I ever met your cousins, as the names don't sound familiar.
I'm glad to hear that Dale "he looks like Hitler" Williams is trying to run again. He'll split the republican vote quite nicely, giving Karen Reeves an actual chance. I am glad to hear that Hall is in favor of some planning too. The valley was getting trashed by Dale Williams and his anti-zoning cronies. The whole Majestic Valley Horse Arena thing stinks of corruption.
*Waves to Amy*
I suppose Stokes is all for Williams. Anything to make himself look better.
And, I must add, Williams makes Judy look like she's almost competent. I said almost!
Judy Martz is a great governor, as far as comedy goes. I love the story of her beating all the disabled kids in the special olympics, because her "competitive instincts" kicked in.
My personal fave is when someone said she reminded them of Margaret Thatcher, she leaned over and said "Thank you. I don't know who that is, but I'll take it as a compliment."
Any collection of Judy's Greatest Hits (har har har) must include:
"My husband's never beaten me, but then again I've never given him a reason to."
I would say 'You've got to be kidding,' but I don't think any of you would make those up...
Really, Amy. This is the governor of the state of Montana, at her finest.
Bet you're glad you're here now, where Gray just spends money like water...
*still grumbling about the fact that the budget wasn't passed until after Labor Day... Deadline was June 30! Months of no idea if pay check was coming until it did...*
Just to show you, Amy, how much our Governor is loved by her state:
Not even her own party, the Republicans, like her. Now that's sad.
Another good look at Montana politics:
There was a great article about Martz and Bush having a jeopardy-like contest to see who was dumber, but it's gone now. The writer is obviously a little bit biased, but the whole concept is funny.
