Word of mouth

Dick Cheney: He's no Dan Quayle
Republican presidential candidate George W. Bush's pick of Dick Cheney as his running mate was a safe choice - no fireworks or hidden agendas - a solid pick.

Your article in Monday's paper regarding the helter-skelter nature of variance practices by the Juneau Planning Commission and the Juneau Assembly is not Watergate or Lewinsky breaking news print.
