Sarah Palin’s Role Model

Being constitutionally disinclined to stay home for more than a few days at a time, I was roaming around northwest Pennsylvania yesterday and visited Pithole City, which was a oil boom town between 1865 and 1868 that briefly was the state’s third largest city and then was completely abandoned when the wells dried up. Historically, it’s an important site too, as it is where the first oil pipeline was developed. But today, it is just a big field on a hillside. The state of Pennsylvania runs it and although the museum itself is only open a few hours a week, you can wander around. So I was walking around and it’s pretty neat, although evidently peak gnat season so I didn’t stay quite as long as I would have liked. Anyway, I ran across this historical marker, which I thought was hilarious and confirms my preexisting notion that every politician in Alaska history is some sort of criminal, very much including everyone’s favorite recent governor.

I then went on to where I thought Ida Tarbell’s grave is, but despite what it says on the internet, I could not find it wandering around a relatively small cemetery for an hour, which makes me wonder if she is actually buried somewhere else.
