Bridge to Nob Hill

The article, Pelosi snares millions in earmarks for her area
from defense bill By JOE GAROFOLI, contained a piece of data
interesting to Ketchikanites: The earmarks include $54 million
for a flood-control project that will raise two trestles used
by the Napa Valley Wine Train.
Well Napa is the first district and Pelosi is the eigth but I
say way to bring home the bacon Nance.
Furthermore Ketchikanians ought to name this bridge and I'd like
to volunteer the first two offerings as: the "Bridge to
Nose Job" (actually I'm just referring to looking down your
nose sipping wine with pinky in the air here) with the first
runner up being the "Bridge to Nob Hill" which happens
to be an upscale San Francisco neighborhood.

snares millions in earmarks for her area from defense bill
By JOE GAROFOLI - The Department of Defense didn't ask for money
to update the old officers club in San Francisco's Presidio into
a visitors information center and exhibition space. Neither did
any other member of Congress -- except House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
