"worst palce in America?"

a good weekend here in Alaska with good friends, wine, and food.

i saw a funny thing at Gulliver's yesterday. there is a new book on the shelves that ranks the "the worst towns in America"- of course Fairbanks was on the list. The lead sentence states:

"take the worst place you've ever been, and subtract the sun- that's Fairbanks"

i had to laugh- part out of absurdity, and partly because i feel that way intermittently. i have a true love/hate relationship with this town. 'the land that design forgot' can get under your skin. when i begin to get frustrated, a trip North is mandatory. truth is i would defend this town ferociously if pushed. Fairbanks can be insufferable at times, but it's home, and our proximity to the playground that is the real Alaska is priceless.
