Sand and Snow

SAND AND SNOW….Alaska Senator Ted Stevens, a guy who really knows how to take care of his home state, inserted a provision into the $18 billion Iraqi reconstruction bill last year that allowed Alaska Native corporations to win contracts with no competitive bidding. Janet Reiser, president of Nana Pacific, explains why this makes sense:

If you exchange snow for sand, work in Iraq is similar to the work we’ve done in Alaska.

Um, yeah.
