Karl Rove, Sarah Palin and Tim Griffin Walk Into a Bar…

Stop me if you’ve heard this before. I just don’t think it’s funny.
I’m always curious why people come to Alaska. Born in Homer, I won the ovarian lottery, but my parent’s adventure to this great state is one that can entertain the crustiest of old timers. “So, what brought you to Alaska?” is a question few dare ask a stranger in a bar, but it always manages to conjure interesting stories while sitting around a fire with friends.
Strangers in Alaska bars, more often than not, have checkered pasts and damn near sneer at what they perceive as an intrusive question.
