Favorite Posts of 2008: February

My favorite posts from February 2008, in chronological order:

  1. "Westbrook Republican Caucus: The Bold-Faced Edition" A minute-by-minute account of the Westbrook Republican presidential caucus won by Gov. Mitt Romney.
  2. "Cock-Eyed, Take Two" Another scathing attack on the presidential caucus system, this time with facts.
  3. "On Second Thought..." One reason why the caucus system isn't all that bad.
  4. "On Location: 41 Wharf Street" Very pregnant wife + Rogues Gallery store-opening party - Ice = Good times.
  5. "Did You Know?" How Westbrook's mayor Leander Valentine's life reflects Westbrook's geographical history.
  6. "Heil, Nissen!" You never know what you'll dig up at the Westbrook Historical Society. An explanation for the ad, by the way, can be found here.
  7. "The Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations" Enter snarky comment here.
  8. "When Barrels of Rum Were on Sidewalks and Water Was Free" Ah, those were the days. Anyway, this post literally reminds me that the second annual Neal Dow Pub Crawl (or should it be renamed the Paper City Pub Crawl?) is scheduled for Friday, January 16, 2009. Good to know since, you know, I'll be organizing the event.
  9. "Going Postal" A look at how much State Sen. Phil "Jug Ears" Bartlett and his fellow legislators like to send you mail.
  10. "Westbrook Democratic Caucus: The Bold-Faced Edition" A minute-by-minute account of the Westbrook Democratic caucus won by Sen. Barack Obama.
  11. "I Heard White Wine Goes Great with Crow" One final word on the caucus system--I swear.
  12. "Happy 194th Birthday, Westbrook!" A look at why Valentine's Day is not the most significant occurrence of February 14.
  13. "The Sportswriter: The Boston Celtics" An appreciation of the Boston Celtics' most underappreciated addition.
  14. "On Location: USM's Vagina Monologues" Pretty much speaks for itself.
  15. "Did You Know?" A primer on Maine's liquid love affair with Allen's Coffee-Flavored Brandy.
  16. "On Maine Ice" It doesn't get any better than a Robert P.T. Coffin reference and a short history of the Maine ice industry.
