24. Wow, Sandpoint Idaho! Birthplace of my father about 90 years ago.
Bet it looked different then! My grandmother used to tell stories of keeping deer meat frozen in a snowbank outside their cabin during the long winters. I've never been there, it is just a place of a few old family legends.

Good for them! I would have guessed this would be a conservative, Bush-in-spite-of-everything area, and I'm happy to be proved wrong. Glad to see them standing up for the troops and veterans, who deserve much more support than their own government is giving them!
