Happy Birthday, Katie Hurley
Katie Hurley is the most distinguished elder of the Alaska Democratic Party. OK, along with Vic Fisher. Anyway, Katie will be 88 on Monday.
I was fortunate enough to be able to lead about 50 people in "Happy Birthday To You!" for Katie, Saturday evening. Even Wasilla's current mayor, Verne Rupright, stood up to applaud this marvelous woman.
I described her upcoming birthday as "44 times two."
The image is from the uplifting speech Katie gave last June, at the opening of the Palmer Obama headquarters.
